Drive Up the Gorge

Marilyn and I did get our drive up the Gorge, even though we slept in (especially me!).

I was coughing this morning, and Marilyn came and woke me (in the middle of the night or early morning). I don't remember it very well. But she heard me coughing (maybe she was awake watching tennis or something), and forced me to get up and take medicine. I couldn't stop, so I took some cold pills, then took some cough syrup (that's a word I actually don't know how to spell!). Then I was sucking a cough drop and finally went back to sleep.

I recall I was having a really good dream and I actually went back to it...

Anyway, we had a lovely ride up the Gorge! It was so sunny once we got out of town. Blue skies and warm, too. We went to McDonald's on the wat there, then to Starbucks in Hood River. Then we headed home again.

On the way back, we got into the worse FOG I've ever seen in my life! It was actually scary driving home! What a relief when we got here.

We watched Miss Universe instead of Revenge tonight. And a bunch of Australian Open tennis, which is on right now.

Fitbit Update: Marilyn did great, she did 7,400 steps. I sucked, and did 2,399 steps. But I guess it's okay, considering I'm not feeling that great.

No supper. We couldn't decide what to eat. I still might make us cheese sandwiches...

My ears are bothering me. But oh well.

It was a good day. I'm just cranky right now because of my ears, I guess...
