End to a too-long weekend

Sunday, so lots of football. Raiders could have won, but decided to get fancy and copy what the 9ers did last week. And like the 9ers, it cost them the game.

Tampa Bay crushed it, and the Seahawks slid to a conference championship.

Put soap in the new foamer/washer attachment and when I squeezed the handle it flew off. The silicon washer was a FAIL. But it worked fine without the washer. I was able to hose down the carport area where the food had made a mess. Also cleaned the front windows, but needed to squeegee those and the car windows because the water her just beads up. It's got a lot of minerals in it, mostly sulfur.

Screwed the cover on the cat opening to allow cats but not raccoons in. I had not counted on raccoons being in there, and after a lot of noise they managed to claw their way out. Total FAIL on the camera - no hint of them exiting. I'll need to screw that back in. And/or call animal control to trap them.

Watched some streamers. Streamed for an hour, three chatters came in.

Hgl before dinner was 80, but didn't feel low. Maybe the Ozempic is working. I backed off on my insulin shots. We'll see how it goes in the morning.

Spook tried to attack Ma'am on the livingroom tree, but got shouted down. She retreated to the bed, which she now owns.

Dinner salad, followed by pastrami on rice.

Watched half of 90 Day Fiancé

Took out the garbage - more recycles will probably go out in the morning before pickup. Bulk pickup items are out too.

Delivered was another nest sensor, it is working.  I need to contact Google and see if they will refund the one I can't pair.

Also delivered was a box of Polident, squashed. It shouldn't matter if the tablets are broken. I don' think they are.

Plans for tomorrow:
Watch the rest of 90 Day
4 pm pacemaker scan

90 Day insomnia, pacemaker check

Spook in bed till about 4 am, then Ma'am. After 6 am pit stop decided to watch the 2nd half of 90 Day.  Watched the first half till 12:30 in the morning. None of these couples are going to make it. Except the one guy who is bringing a bisexual woman here, who likes his ex. That might work. But 52 yo cougar is a nympho and crazy. Sequim man and Bayou man have no clue about their women. Farm boy might succeed if he can move him & his woman to the city. Mom's "farm" is a joke, it's like watching a bad episode of Green Acres. Tunisia boy will get homesick for Islam in a week.

Back to bed till almost noon. Ma'am was freaked out by the number of pit stops. So was I.

Breakfast was lunch.

4 pm pacemaker check went well. He didn't tell me if he saw afib. I think Dr. will give results next month. She was not on duty, I left her a calendar.

Home, made the raccoon cover more secure. Cats had not touched the can of food. Brought it in after dark 1/3 full.

Charged the car.

Brought in the bins. The trucks were way late.

Bees still getting drunk on the hummingbird feeders, but also still seeing Anna's birds there and on the bush as well.

$39 glasses arrived. The sunglasses were great for driving to the clinic. But I'm sending the computer glasses back because the magnification is wrong. Good for the phone but not for the screen. They offer a free exchange.

Also delivered were the prong to screw base adapters for the porch lights. Installed the one on the carport, will store the other for when the porch light dies.

Miki sent her address, said her NY Day party will just be about 5 of us, plus cats & dog. Sounds good. I was concerned it would be a crowd and I'd have to decline.

BASFA meeting was short. I may take next week off. Streamed for an hour, many lurkers, no chatters.

Cup o noodles and beef jerky dinner. Hgl was way up after that. Jerkey has sugar. And I had some egg nog.

Plans for tomorrow:
