Please note: except for the thoughts/teaser - today's blog has nothing to do with writing. As usual, the teaser is at the end of the missive.
Yesterday was one of those good day/bad day type of days.
Down: I spent the night fighting insomnia (I lost) and was groggy most of the day.
Up: My hubby and I had plans to go shopping with our D-I-L and grandson.
Down: Just as she arrived to pick us up, our phone rang. My husband's kidney doctor wanted to know if he could come in that morning. (Note: My hubby has been fighting kidney disease for two years). What was odd was that we originally had an appointment scheduled, then the office called and rescheduled for January, now they wanted us in that morning. As my hubby had just finished a set of extensive tests, the call scared us more than a little.
Way Up: But the news was good as we found out he is in remission. The rescheduling was due to a change in the doctor's schedule not because of a problem.
Down: Stopped at a grocery store on the way home - they didn't have several things on my list so will have to go back out today to a different store to get the things I need.
Up: Celebrated with pizza for lunch - it's been one of the no-no's on my husband's very restricted diet.
Down: Got bills from the hospital for several of the procedures he had done in September. Their printout didn't match what we originally got so we will have to go to the accounting department to argue with them - again. Nine times he was in for the exact same procedure with exactly the same drugs, etc. Nine different bills; nine different charges; nine different fights. At least this will be the last time.
Up: Even though I was extremely groggy, I managed to get three pages written last night.
So at least the day ended on an upswing. A good day overall.
