Whacky Wednesday

I'll be out of the house most of Wednesday. I have a doctor's appointment in Baton Rouge and had planned a little shopping until my husband got a call confirming his doctor appointment for Wednesday. So we will be car pooling to Baton Rouge to get these appointments done. Both are regular check ups and mainly to get prescriptions renewed. I did tell him that we were stopping at our daughter's house in Baton Rouge. It is not far from the doctor's office. I had already promised to drop off a few things to her. He wasn't happy about this, but I told him to suck it up! They have a long time rift going that I have been managing to stay out of. Since my shopping trip is now off the calendar, I think we will pick up Chinese take out for dinner on the way home. That's the plan for now anyway. What are your plans for Wednesday?

It did. Both appointments were quick and all the stops ran smoothly. Best of all we missed the rain all day! I'll be doing laundry probably on Saturday. Hoping to knock out some yard work in the next few days while we have a bit of sunshine.

Yep it is two stubborn people! We both had good dr. visits. Hub had his medication wrong so good thing he went back in. He had stopped taking the wrong blood pressure medicine so dr. got him all straight. He has to go on a DIET too!! I maintained my previous weight, blood pressure good so I got a clean bill. Just had to go do labs to check on thyroid again.

My daughter just told me she's going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding in New Orleans in mid-October. I may solicit some sightseeing advice from you as the date draws closer. Nothing much going on here on this whacky Wednesday. I didn't get much sleep last night, so I'm really tired and may just try to go to bed early tonight.

Oh cool!! And it will be cooled off some by then. We actually were invited to a wedding down there this Saturday but not going. My hubby hates New Orleans just because of all the crime. It killed him when we held a Symposim down there for a week --the week before Mardi Gras!! I told him to take off work and come down and stay but he said he couldn't get off work (too bad). I told him that if we went out at night, it would be in a group. No problem. So he calls and I didn't hear phone ring and he got no answer for several attempts. This happened to be the night we all decided to go out so I was in crowd and noise. Before we left, one of our grad students didn't plan on spending the night down there and we had talked her into going out with us all. I offered her the other bed in my room. In the meantime upset hubby decides to drive down to see what is going on and he gets my room number and goes to the room to find the grad student who had gone back to hotel early crashed in room and me nowhere to be found. We finally connected. He wasn't very pleased. He had seen a fatality on way getting to hotel --someone who had gotten stabbed on the sidewalk and of course always thinks the worst. It's not easy being married to a cop!!

This is so ironic; I was just thinking about how much I miss Chinese cuisine. I have not mastered it in my own kitchen as of yet. My husband and I used to go to a really good buffet in our area. Since Covid, we've stopped going into restaurants. Just today, I thought about picking up something from one of our many takeout stores. Tomorrow is another day. Maybe it will happen then, who knows?

I haven't tried to cook any of it. When I worked we had several people that visited often from China, Asia, etc. One stayed in the states and worked with us for several years. We became friends and often were invited for dinner at her house. I loved watching her prepare food. We stopped and got our fix. We were both so tired after getting home that we barely ate any of it so I'll have that for dinner tonight and won't have to cook. Win!!

He was good today and we made it to his apt. on time. We both ran out and forgot to take our morning meds...and I just knew I'd get the high blood pressure rant from my doctor but it was all good!! I only ran into Ollies to see what they had in stock. Got a couple of t-shirts for him and that was about it. I wanted to get a couple of books but I didn't write down the titles.

@wolfgirl569 He's pretty good about shopping unless it is the mall. I don't like to go to the mall either and when I do it is go in to the store I want to visit and then leave. I have to take my acid reflux medicine about hour before taking the rest of my medicine and that throws me off if the routine is different.

We were both so tired that we barely ate. Was a good night to go to bed early, but then again we were both up before midnight. It's almost 2 am now and I think I'm about ready to give sleep another try.

He'll just have to get over it. If you want to pay her a visit, you should. He can deal with it or waste the fuel and take his own car.

@LadyDuck True. Her bf is in the center of the problem. She needs to wake up because she is just wasting her life away with him.
