Can you hear me now?

I have an ear ache. I'm kind of counting on it being temporary and going away soon. My doctor's clinic has a 24 hour drop in place and I toyed with going there but it's way the fuck on the other side of town. And it's just an ache. They will be there tomorrow and if it moves from ache to OMG THIS HURTS, I can always go then. Now it's just annoying with a little bit of isitgettingbetter or isitgettingworse.

I'm falling apart. My plan of cutting back my inhaler doses by half is now just not using it on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Several times recently I have nearly fallen - trip over this or that or banged into this or that. I'm amazed and encouraged by my ability to avoid the actual fall but I'm not amused by the almost part. And my knee hurts - sometimes, not always. I feel old.

I went back to my regular pool this morning and it was ok. At least it wasn't crowded. And then I stopped at a place I've been meaning to try for breakfast. The breakfast was very very mediocre, the service was so bad that for the first time I can ever remember, I left only the coins from my change for a tip but the worst was the screaming children. It was not good.

Then on to the library to return the movie. On to my favorite market, where a cashier I've seen there for years and years said 'I know you come in here often but I don't know your name' and when I told her she said 'Well, hi Susan! Now, next time, please help me if I don't remember it. It might take me a time or two to get it right every time.'

It was an odd but really nice little interaction.

Then I stopped at the Goodwill Warehouse to see if they had sheets. No. Then on to Krispy Kreme to pick up their special Eclipse Donuts they promised. 'Oh we won't have those until 3 or 5' WTF? I just left. I was going to get a half dozen glazed anyway but they pissed me off and I don't need don't them so I just left.

So that's my day so far. Little Mary Fucking Sunshine. I think I'm going to go take a nap.

Other random stuff

I did take a long nap and now am feeling better. My ear still aches but it's no worse. I made another Care Bear but, more importantly, I cleaned up the sewing room. And then took apart the sewing machine and cleaned it. I love tidy.

Next up is the baseball game. The Mariners are playing in Florida so the game starts at 3. And I need to get this hat knitted.

I had to unfollow several people on Instagram and Twitter because Project Runway has started up again and I intend to watch it when I want to and so discussions turn into spoilers. I totally get their wanting to talk about it. But, I will miss their posts.

And I have my Live Journal friends list.

topum has been on it for a while. He has great photos and shares about his life in Moldova which is somewhere I have never ever been or known anyone who has been. Today's entry is a delightful story about the grannies in his village.
