Let me talk about the critters

rather than the challenges of getting a script out of the VA. Or managing to balance all the comings and goings of the household today.

Bar Class at 0715. Drop off friends at BART (~1000). Head to appointment (1415) at VA leaving in time to allow George to catch BART from 19th Street en route to SFO (~1330) . As much as I would have loved to leave for Europe with him to visit Heidelberg & Ingolstadt before traveling to Venice, I just had too many commitments this week. Much less game tickets….. Then Dani had an appointment (1545) which ending about the time that I needed to leave for tonight’s As Game.

The As were ahead for 7 innings and didn’t managed to lose till the last inning. The good and the bad – I had a good time anyway and there weren’t that many fans at the stadium.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
