Day of Rest

The plan was to sleep in, but at 1:30 am after a pit stop, ocular migraines were so bad I couldn't read the phone, so off to the Hgl meter in the kitchen and got 53. Finished the last 2 scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and went to bed. Woke up at 7:15, canceled the alarm, decided on a short (no shower) routine - afraid of soaking the dressing - and set up the heart monitor like I should have done last night. Eventually it will transmit when I get an adapter. Left VM for the tech, but he didn't answer. Typical.

Spent most of the day in the recliner watching ESPN and enjoying a fine cable connection on a very fine home theater setup.

Breakfast was my first microwave experiment, croissant with 2 cheeses.

Punched in the numbers in Quicken for the rent/utils. Don't need to print the check for a week.

Middle sister returned my call. Last night she ate too much, went to sleep, her husband explained when I called. Told her the whole adventure, with footnotes.

Emailed my contract rep, canceling our Monday lunch date. He's done nothing for me the past 2 months, so cancel not postpone.

Ignoring email from refinance people, who keep asking for things I have already given them. I am not your secretary.

Side effect of something - my handwriting on the white board is way less legible than before. Something is wrong with my eye-hand coordination.

Lunch was the last of the lox.

Baked the last batch of brownies, plenty of walnuts added. I didn't wait long enough to cut them, a little crumbly. Should have put 'em in the fridge first.

Got email that there were new test results from Kaiser, but there weren't. They listed a bunch of older tests as if they were new. Web page redesign kinda sucks, they chose simple over functional.

Dinner was ravioli from a year ago found in the fridge freezer plus the same kind found in the big freezer from a couple of weeks ago. Plus some Manwich sauce, which I now know I don't like a lot.

Brownies for dessert.

Watched PTI and the news.

Caught up all my missing LJ posts.

Removed and replaced the pacemaker dressing. The sutures don't look like they were made by the best surgeon. Just sayin'

Bummed that I will not be at consonance_con, and bummed that I had no way to write a song or two this week for it.

Plans for tomorrow:
Shower. My hair is itching. Re-replace the dressing if need be
Put the cat carrier in the car
If Lee is home, let her know where I have been.
Take drugs
Visit Chase the Wondercat at Dancing Cat around 1 pm
Improvise from there. I may or may not come home with a big Maine Coon mix.
