Today I had a break in the routine. I went to Walgreen's to pick up a prescription. I got to shop while I was in there, too.
Sweetsie was just as excited to get out as I was. She loves getting into the car.
Now it turns out that I need AAA batteries for my Amazon fire remote. Maybe we will go on another outing tomorrow. I love shopping but I tend to spend too much. I could just order on Amazon.
I played trivia again today. Even though I got a higher score than last week I only came in second. All the Latin, German and Spanish I studied really comes in handy for trivia and crossword puzzles. I didn't know any of the answers today but I can guess well with my language background. The trivia players are much more friendly than the Rummikub players so I enjoyed myself.
The weather was better today. It didn't get over 90. I spoke to a lady who lives down the block. I run into her every day while I'm out walking. She said her air conditioner was running constantly and her electric bill increased by $10.00. She needs to stay out of Houston. My electric bill was $300-400/month. I keep my apartment around 74 degrees. I couldn't afford to keep it that cool in Houston.
I don't have much to write about today. If going to Walgreen's is exciting, you can imagine how little goes on here in the retirement home.
As long as I take advil every 4 hours the pain in my leg is fairly well controlled. Pain is exhausting and disheartening. I'm feeling pretty upbeat tonight. Soon I hope to fix up my sewing room and get back to the things I love to do.
