First week in Elkhart

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Wow, where has the week gone? The only major things accomplished are getting the first 8 loads of laundry done, doing another 6 today. Okay, so they are small loads. LOL!

Thursday was my 65th birthday and I got a not so nice present when I woke at 5:30am - a bladder infection. Sigh. Welcome to Medicare and old age. LOL! I emailed our primary care doctor back in Maryland and by 1:00 was on medication. Friday I rested and Saturday thought I felt good enough for my birthday movie date. We went to see ParaNorman (cute movie) and Resident Evil: Retribution (great continuation of the series, left us hanging and waiting for another sequel). We stopped at Bob Evans for dinner and I couldn't eat all mine.

Arrived home with a sore throat and felt really tired. By 9:30 we had headed to bed and by 11pm we were both asleep. I had a restless night, lots of aching, tossing, turning, weird dreams - didn't get up till noon. Really exhausted today so guess I overdid it yesterday.

My book is still unfinished (another 10-15k needs to be written0, maybe I can do a little writing this afternoon while Stu runs errands.

Sadie had a visitor this morning, a year old pug slipped his collar and came over to play. He's 29# to her 40# and he took no guff off her. They had a blast! The owner plans to bring him back for another play date. I'll try to snap a photo or two.

My good online friends Dick & Melissa Secor are here at the campground, parked not far from us. He is a painter (I am proud to own one of his small paintings of sand dunes) and she is a children's book writer (and the one who introduced me to the April A-Z Challenge that I did last year). They are here for repairs, too. We had hoped to meet this weekend but guess it will wait a couple more days. Sigh...
