Being a ditz – You know when you see someone doing something rude or stupid and think what a ditz they are? That was me. I was in an informal line waiting to check out at a store with three cashiers working. There was a little old lady in front of me. (“Old” is always 20 years older than me no matter what age I am.) I chatted with her about how informal the line was. Usually there is a rope with a sign but not today. With that, the cashier way around the back called for the next person (which I clearly wasn’t) and I walked over. I could have sworn that the cashier directly in front of us finished up the person she was waiting on but not so. I cut in front of the little old lady (how bad is that?). Seeing the look on the woman, I quickly apologized and exchanged places with her. I will not be so quick to judge next time I see someone doing something….umm….weird. Maybe their brain is on a vacation.
A nip in the air – It’s only August but for the past couple of days, the nights have been cooling off. It’s a harbinger of fall. Sleeping is great. Even the cats have sparked up a bit from their summertime lethargy.
Speaking of energy – For me energy comes and goes. I get spurts of hyperactivity followed by long naps and leisurely navel gazing. I had a spurt this week and once I was aware, I harnessed it to accomplish some tasks that I don’t like to do. Things like making phone calls. Some services (like my cell phone service) allow me to change plans on-line. Other services (like my satellite radio) require me to go through acrobatics on the phone to get a reasonably priced renewal. Since I don’t spend a lot of time in my car these days, I was more than ready to cancel unless they were ready to deal.
It only happens on weekends – Next week is busy. We are visiting friends followed by my family reunion here next weekend. True to form, one of the veneers in my mouth popped Friday night. It’s a front tooth so I have this hillbilly look about me. (Not that there is anything wrong with a hillbilly look!) This is the fourth time this happened, all on weekends, all different teeth. (Both of my yellow jacket attacks happened on weekends too.) I will start my week with a 7:15 a.m. appointment at the dentist. (Don’t ask me to smile until then.)
Jake is back to normal or as normal as he gets – My old cat Jake has been “off” for the past three weeks. Being off means he’s had litter issues (he prefers to pee on a towel than in a box) and loud howling during the night (for reasons I can’t figure out). His insulin bottle was just about empty so I started a new one and the behaviors stopped. The old insulin was still working as his blood sugar was perfect so I don’t understand the connection. I’m grateful that there is peace in the house.
So how was your week?
