03:21 am: Cold & Pain Walking

I've been mostly home with a lot of narcotics for an extended weekend. I went to get labs today, expecting to get groceries afterward, but I couldn't walk well enough out of the clinic. I left the bags & list in the van. When I got home, I had to sleep for three hours, but at least I don't have to be anywhere any time tomorrow. I just went out to get the rolling cart from the van. I plan to go ahead and take trash & recycling out, leave the cart set up in the back of the van, get groceries, and bring groceries inside in the cart. The grocery is open on Thursday, and I might actually go if I can't make it tomorrow/Wednesday, because there are a couple things on sale and that sale stops Thursday.

You see I have a new icon. A while back I was teasing Jay Lake because his icon looked a lot different than he does now, so I figured I should get a newer one myself. One of the guys at bookgroup is really good at photography and he did this with his phone.

I'm still having problems with the new credit union. A lot of billpaying things that worked fine with the FCU for which I'd been a member for a long time are just not the same with the new one. They're not getting a lot of stuff out on time, even though I have the pay dates five days before the actual date.

I was looking at some old posts and saw your new icon. My first thought was that it was an old icon I had forgotten, but a second later I realized it was new. It does not dishonor you.

Thanks! It has my new glasses and haircut (the hair will be continually cut until the weird hair is gone).

I will be in DC in late January. I plan to go to the National Zoo at least once (probably twice).

Would you be interested in joining me or are physical/health issues likely to prevent that?

I'd love to join you, but I wouldn't be able to get from the parking lot to the entrance. Do you have other free time? I can pick you up at a Virginia Metro station and go to dinner or something.

It looks as though I will have free time the evenings of Monday (1/30), Tuesday (1/31) and Wednesday (2/1). I'm staying with lizzibabe, so the three of us can maybe grab dinner in DC one of those times?

I am planning to do the zoo on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday might be a museum day if I don't feel the need to get any specific shots.

I also have an aunt in the area. I have no idea what, if anything, we'll be doing together... but I wanted to lock in a time with you first since I think she has more flexibility.

I can't manage the elevators at the Metro stops (and the elevators don't manage well, either, a lot of time). But lizzibabe not only lives in the county around my city, she used to work here. If you'd rather go to DC, I'm sure she'll go with you. But if you'd like to go somewhere out here, we can just meet there. She knows where there's good restaurants.

Do you have a preference for Monday evening vs Tuesday evening for a get-together?

No, either of those are fine.

Thanks! Actually, three inches were just cut. :) The old icon was really old -- 2006 -- and taken at Minicon 41, just after I'd had a foot of my hair cut off to donate to Locks of Love. They only make hair pieces for children who have long-term medical hair loss, usually for alopecia. I've known three people with that problem, so that's why I picked that non-profit.

Nice new icon - I noticed it on your last post.
Have a good holiday (don't know if you do anything for it or not).
Hope you'll feel better by tomorrow,
Doris
