This is the last week I will have to gather what I will take with me to Arizona. The week is sort of punctuated by "time wasters" - two doctor appointments! I have an appointment to see the doctor on Wednesday about the results of my bone scan as well as the weight problem, and then the eye surgeon on Friday. The eye appointment will be a piece of cake, even on a Friday, because it is probably not even 3 miles from my apartment.
I tried to buy a rubber mat for the truck bed today - they had one left for a Ford truck but the box had been opened and was still not closed completely, plus someone had wrapped a plastic tie to hold it together on one end. I asked if they had any others as I didn't want to buy something in an uncertain condition. I was told by a clerk that I could order a new one if I was willing to pre-pay it, and she asked the man working with her if he would go check to see if there was a possibility of receiving it before Friday. He was gone a few minutes and the next time I saw him he was assisting another man with merchandise. Needless to say I decided to leave without the mat or the lock I had in my hand for the generator. Pep Boys lost a sale of $100 today, but I doubt anyone there is concerned about it. A stop at two other stores didn't locate one, so I may just give up and buy it in Arizona.
I bought Lady a new rectangular orthopedic bed for the camper. They are expensive, and I didn't even buy the premium model. I set it upright against the wall (don't want her getting it covered with dog hair yet) - she sniffed it a bit but left it alone. She knows it's for her though.
I tried for the last time to set up the iPod, but the instructions leave a lot to be desired. It will probably end up in a drawer so I don't have to look at it and realize what a waste it was to buy it. I hope that's the last hi tech item I am tempted to get.
At about 8:20 pm yesterday I passed 100,000 views of my blog. That is outstanding to me, and when I began writing it I had no idea that it would be so well received and read. I thank each and every one of you for making this possible.
Six more wake-ups!
