Day 953... Have to laugh at myself

Sunday, May 04, 2014

Laughing at myself beats getting mad at myself. Another day that was NOT a rest day. In fact I did more exercise today than yesterday. I have decided not to sweat it. I will take a rest day when I feel like it... and that isn't today. I didn't go for a run today. I just wasn't feeling like braving the chilly temperatures. I am definitely a fair weather runner. I went to my dad's last recital instead. He taught for about 35 years at the HS level, but his real love has always been music. So when he retired from teaching he began working as an accompanist at the local college's school of music. But it is getting harder for him to read the music, and he doesn't hear that great anymore, so once again he is retiring. He will still play piano, but not for the students at the college. Today he was accompanying a mezzo soprano. And the entire family showed up to support him. My brothers and I didn't stay for the reception after the recital, but we went to the recital.

I am still driving mom's car and took my one brother to the grocery store after the recital. He said he had butter and that was about it for groceries at his house. He lets his fridge get completely empty before stocking up again. He eats at mom and dad's fairly often, so it isn't like he would starve, but still...

I have to go for more blood work tomorrow. I have to fit it in between eating lunch and 1pm when the visiting nurse is coming. The nurse I had resigned so I have had a fill in for the past two weeks. I am hoping this one will be permanent. Her schedule would change though. She has to be better than the one I had last week who refused to come in because of Cooper. She said she doesn't "do" dogs.

    Your father must have been very happy to have his family at the recital. Those things are important.

I feel sorry for people who "don"t do dogs". They are missing out on one of life's biggest pleasures.

    I think it's hysterical when service repair people worriedly ask about my dogs. All 3 of them together weigh 30 pounds, maybe!

    What kind of nurse doesn't "do" dogs? Poor thing and all that she is missing out on.

    She is a health nurse and she doesn't "do" dogs perhaps she needs to find another profession.

    She doesn't "do" dogs? Well, better that she's gone then! I hope your fill-in becomes permanent too, especially if you like her.

So tell me, why do you have a nurse?

And I'm still aggravated about that nurse not liking Cooper!
