rain, pain and taxi service

It was one of those days. It was raining, it was raining a lot. Combined with high winds there was more than a few downed trees across the area. SFO had flights affected for a number of hours due to high winds and blasting rain. In fact, it was raining enough that there was no utility work today. Would have been nice to discover that before I made an effort to park out on the street to avoid getting trapped in our driveway.

For the most part, I spent the day doing pick up/drop off. One to BART, two to work, three work pick-ups, a BART pickup and a mercy run to drop off a forgotten bagged meal.
I managed a few more squares (sorry no picture), finished another audiobook, and just generally felt lousy and crabby.  I am presuming I’ll feel better after I get through the PET/CT tomorrow and can get back on a normal diet.

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!

    What kind of diet are you on? Something related to your therapy?

    • Holly says:

      It was just for the two days prior to the PET scan. But it sucked big time. As low carb as possible, higher on the protein. Which is a real problem if one’s diet is mostly dairy and grains….

    Just when you think the taxi days are over, right? But then we look back later and remember the time spent together in the car like that and miss it. And them.

      true enough. I don’t get a lot out of anyone on a drop off – but in the evening? No question that I get to hear about their day.
