It's May!

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

We have been here for a week but it seems much longer. We've had our initial visits with our GP. I have now added Vitamin D tablets to my daily pill intake and Stu was changed from Metformin, which tremendously upset his stomach, to Invokana (at least for a 30 day trial).

I also had my first visit with the ophthalmologist who is doing my cataract surgery. My left eye, the worse, is getting done the afternoon of May 22nd. I could have gone in a week earlier but we are babysitting our grandgirls next week after Stu's oldest daughter's wedding this weekend. With two follow-up visits in the first week, it wasn't going to happen. So the 22nd it is. The right eye will be done some time in June, date TBD.

We had to do some grocery shopping almost immediately and I snapped these two photos. What a gorgeous display of orchids - in the grocery store!

Today I had to revisit our GP for my pre-surgery physical. We set the alarm and got up at 7am for my 9am appointment. Imagine my surprise when I signed in and she told me it was at 1:15. I checked my calendar and sure enough, she was right. Oops! We made a quick McDonalds stop so I could eat, headed to Sam's Club for a few necessities and then off the the theater to see Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. Loved it!!

We saw a Baskin Robbins on the way home and treated ourselves...yummy! I had the Jamoca Almond Fudge (bottom) and Stu had the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (top).

Our final stop was for diesel fuel on the way home. We recently received our replacement Garmin (the new one was still under warranty when it went wonky on us) and Stu was double-checking to see if there was a way to track fuel mileage like there was on our original (old) one. Nope. But I told him all I did was say "Hey Siri, divide blah blah blah by blah blah blah, and she did." When I glanced down at my phone, this is what I saw....ROFLOL!!!

I hope to get a little writing done this week and maybe during the day next week while we are in Delaware with the grandkids. Rehearsal dinner is Friday night, wedding is Saturday, they leave on their honeymoon very early Monday morning.

Will blog when I can...we have to hotspot off our phones while in Delaware - good thing we will have a lot of rollover minutes this month (ends next Monday).

Ciao for now!
