What Is A Day Off?

It is way way too early. I am not a morning person. I have to remember to leave a little early so that I can make sure to get everything done before we open at 7am. Well the gas window will open at 7am. The rest of the store opens at 8am. But my relief doesn’t get there until 8am so I am essentially running the store by myself.

Yesterday went well, all things considered. I don’t feel like I had much of a day off. I was out the door for my hair cut before Chris was up. I got back home and paced for another hour or so before I realized that I still had to get my tabs for both the bike and car. So off I go to the Secretary of State. Usually you can get in and out within 15 minutes or so. Not this time. The woman who was being helped took f-o-r-e-v-e-r. She had to go get something from her car at one point and I’m pretty sure she felt everyone looking daggers at her. Then I hear people talking about having an appointment (I thought it was weird that the little number ticket machine was tucked in the corner). I got online and lo! Apparently appointments are now required. In the end that was fine because I ran out of time to wait.

My consult went well. My doctor is very nice and knowledgeable. And yes I am still getting a colonoscopy. No idea when. That mess took about 2 hours (mostly waiting). I got home and spent some time with the girls. Then Facetimed with Dad. Then talked with Mom. Then did dishes. And laundry. Oh I did get a bunch of the milkweed pods cut off and redistributed around the property so hopefully there will be a bunch more milkweed next year for the butterflies. I got no writing done. By the end of the night I was too tired to do anything but read and even that didn’t last long.

Right now I have both girls up with me. Stella is behind me on the love seat and Essie is to my right on the couch. Good gad. It just dawned on me that at this time tomorrow I will already have been at work an hour…. That being said I need to wrap this up. If I am going to add photos I need to delete some old ones and that will take some time. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
