Marilyn had a difficult time waking me for my appointment this morning! I just haven't been sleeping well because of my flare-up in both hips. It makes it impossible to get comfortable and stay that way. So I end up tossing from side to side...
But she managed (she's a marvel!) -- and took me in plenty of time for my labs. I like the woman who works there. She's great at taking blood. But I knew I was so dehydrated that she'd have a time getting a vein, which was true. I'd told her to use the back of my hand and she did (the right hand). When I think what a baby I was for the early part of my life! And not I'm just 'stick me, whatever' when it happens. And I managed enough pee to finish up the labs (thankfully I hadn't allowed myself to do a drop after getting up).
Marilyn dropped me home and headed on to work. I settled in after putting on a pot of coffee and went straight to work on several projects.
I actually got a TON done today. I set up to train Grace (current Queen Grace, who is an intern this year) next week. Later in the day I set up a phone for both her and Annie, too.
I worked on more website stuff, including the Treasure Hunt page.
I just was sitting here with my eyes closed, drifting off!!! I think I need to head to bed. (It's nearly 2:00 a.m.)
Quick review of the day: I did the Volunteer page, which only took less than five minutes, believe it or not! Marilyn sent me the blurb for adding a request for mini-float decorators this year.
I swapped out my left monitor (monitor trouble AGAIN???), because the screen was 'jittery' (not a good description, but what the hell). It seemed okay at first, then the new monitor was jittery, too! I called Donn, and it could be the video card. But I'm over it. I just need to push through regardless! (At least I saved the old monitor, which is clearly fine! I was going to toss it.)
Marilyn had her final appearance with the Living History program tonight. It was a Rosarian dinner, and this was a chance to show them the performance, considering they've been paying to sponsor this program for years now! Marilyn said it went really well.
So obviously she had a long day and night!
June took me to the Dollar Tree and Freddies, where I did a little shopping. So nice of her!
And while working on the garbage and recycling, I spoke with Estelle across the street (she came over). She's 67 and just retired on Monday. She said she's had three naps in three days! Hahaha.
I did go out in the sunshine for a bit today (in the back yard). Boy, was it hot! I was quite sweaty.
Somehow I got well over my 4,000 steps (nearly 5,000, actually). Marilyn said it was 'doing something I wasn't supposed to be doing.' Hahaha. I had no clue I had walked that much.
At one point I went in to my bedroom and laid on top of the bed for several minutes. I have a magnetic mattress on that bed, so sometimes I think lying on it helps my hips (and other body pains). Maybe, mayber not, I guess.
Too tired to think straight. I did quite a bit more than I'm recording, but what the hell. I'll try and be better about blogging tomorrow night!
