Steve, Meg, and Liam came by today and Steve got the length of pipe needed to hook up the faucet in the shower. I could get water from the showerhead fixture but couldn't run it into the tub via the lower faucet. That meant when I cleaned the tub I had to rinse it by filling & dumping cups of water - a time-consuming task.
Steve looked at a few photos where I couldn't see well enough to be sure which one of my own kids it represented. Ah, to have the strength and eyesight of youth! I had a really nice visit with Megan who is looking good. I don't remember exactly when she is due and forgot to ask her.
I'm getting irritated with having my arm bandaged as the bandage slips, probably because I don't wrap it tight enough to nearly cut off circulation in my arm. The stitches look fine but the skin around them is not so great looking - probably from being bound by the damn bandage. I'm going to look tomorrow for a large band-aid that won't stick to the hair on my arms when I take it off. Not sure if they even make something like that but it would be a lot more comfortable. I feel like my arm needs to be exposed to the air, but if it did the doctor wouldn't have told me to bandage it for 2 weeks. Here is where I usually part ways with a doctor and do my own thing, but I do want this to be over with soon so I won't have to go back.
Steve is trying to get the other guys together to trim some of the bushes in the yard. I was considering contacting a landscaper, but he nixed that idea. I want to get my backyard looking good but almost need to see how much of my travel savings account will be spent for the trip to Alaska. I guess I should just estimate the travel and blow the rest on the yard!
Mike & his family are visiting CA soon, and Steve was jokingly figuring how we could get Mike into doing some work on the yard. That is really funny and I told him that Mike, being the oldest of his siblings, as well as holding a commanding officer position, always determined how he could get others to do the actual work! Actually, he is a very hard worker and has been since he was a little kid delivering papers.
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
