Birthday. I can't believe I am that old. But parts of me can

Another night of hourly pee trips. And Spook curled up next to me, this time with added purring. Heidi had let me escort her to her room, and I closed the door.

I finally got a full 90 minute sleep after the 8 am alarm went off. 

No breakfast - too late and a big late lunch was planned.

Drove to the PO, mailed the letter to the FAILed medicare advisor.

Albertson's on the way back, bought a Black Forest cake. Glad they were in stock.

Next stop, Starbucks on the other side of the parking lot, got my free birthday Frappuccino.

Home, pit stop then brought the cake & mocha inside.

Drove to the mailbox, Amazon FAIL again - they sent the cat toys by USPS, postal bozo crammed the large padded envelope in there, it was not easy to get it out.

Back home, heated up the crayfish boil which included two small pieces of corn on the cob. The potatoes were horrid, as was the broccoli, they got flushed down. The crayfish were yummy and about 20 of them.

Black forest cake for dessert. Excellent chocolate cake but the whipped cream frosting was way too thick.

Watched a long Gold Rush episode. FFed a lot because the narration was highly repetitive. I lost count of how many times he said the price of gold was high and fuel prices were low. And it was a short season.

90 Day Fiancé was a repeat - both episodes. The real one is tonight, I think.

Watched the Raiders' defense beat the pants off Denver; Tampa Bay crushed whomever they played; Seahawks lost in a sadly uninspired showing. Ravens too.

Many birthday wishes on FB. One new friend - a somewhat distant cousin. My 2nd cousins and once-removeds could fill a stadium.

Dinner was disappointing. Turns out I'd ordered the wrong dish from Red Lobster. The Ultimate Feast instead of lobster lover's. I'd added a lobster tail so I had 2 but expected 4. The shrimp in lobster sauce from the Chinese place was a FAIL - the sauce was watery, not lobster sauce as much as shrimp soup. I cut up the lobster tails and added them to some of the soupy sauce, and added rice, but it wasn't quite what I'd hoped for. Good though, and I have a lot of shrimp left over.

Thai iced tea went well with it. Sweetened condensed milk makes it perfect

Another piece of cake.

Pit stop.

Unloaded the dishwasher.

Took out the garbage, recycle and bulk - a lot of big boxes

Plans for tomorrow:
Refill my meds containers
Wor Won Ton soup & honey walnut prawns & egg rolls. Probably half the soup.
Call Quang
