bundled up, walkabout, snow

Errand Day

Tigger's reacting well to his medicine. He feels a little better today, but he doesn't think he will feel like going to school tomorrow. Which gives him the weekend before coming back to school. He should really be okay by Saturday for the chess tournament.

I've got a cold. Last night it was making my throat hurt, but I'm fine this morning, except for sniffles. I slept in rather than go to bible study though. Twice in a row. But Berry is picking up my lesson for me, so I can be all prepared for next week.

Now that I'm up and have fed Tigger, I'm going to shower and then run errands:
  • Pick up & deposit a check for Erosul
  • Pick up Tigger's homework
  • Shop at Sam's
  • Get my allergy shot, and arrange to have them at my family practice office in the future
  • Pick up some stuff at CVS for Flar (that I forgot yesterday)
  • Trade in a duplicate paperback that Flar bought for Sahara
  • Pick up Flar's laundry that he forgot to pick up on Saturday

Good thing I decided to list these out -- I'd have forgotten some of them.

everyday errands

My cold seems to only affect me at night (sore throat) and in the morning (sniffles, instead of the usual sneezes).

Tigger is going well on his meds, which don't make him sleepy, so he'll be able to take the cough syrup if he needs to when he's back in class. Monday.

Today I ran around a lot, and got things done:
  • Picked up Chipotle for lunch
  • Picked up a check for Erosul
  • Picked up homework for Tigger
  • Deposited the Erosul check
  • Gave a check to Bébé and showed him my new hair cut, which he says makes my hair look longer.
  • Shopped at Sam's
  • Got my allergy shot, paid off my allergist for the remaining 2004 balance, and got a new vial of shots with instructions for my PCP
  • Shopped at CVS
  • Traded a paperbook for Sahara
  • Picked up Flar's laundry
  • Picked up Critter's Report Card Reward dinner: Pizza from Pizza Hut

Tomorrow I need to pick up kibble and animal-safe anti-ice pellets from Incredipet, and I can keep the allergy shots until I go to my PCP next week to start shots.

Flar is leaving tomorrow afternoon.

Friday, I'm planning a pajama day. I don't have to go out for any reason, so I shall clean house, do laundry, and maybe even finish Tigger's sweater. Then Saturday, we leave early in the morning to get to a chess tournament in the Louisville area.

And I get to see Hippychicx!

And drop off a present for Camel. I used to be vaguely unsettled by porch dropoffs, now I'm grateful for the insulating value. Maybe by 2006, when they're likely to attend the PWP, I'll be able to face casual contact. Wimp.

After Wednesday, Next comes Thursday

I made short work of a collection of short stories, waiting for Ro to finish the second Thursday Next novel. I was helped by having already read Incubus Dream. I would have hated stopping at that point -- as I recall, I turned to the next chapter immediately!

6 Cravings, by Laurell K. Hamilton, MaryJanice Davidson, Eileen Wilks and Rebecca York
5 Ring of Fire, edited by Eric Flint
4 Dolly and the Starry Bird, by Dorothy Dunnett
3 Dolly and the Nanny Bird, by Dorothy Dunnett
2 The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel, by Jasper Fforde
1 Incubus Dreams: An Anita Blake Novel, by Laurel K. Hamilton

Now I've got to get to work on finances, so that Flar and I can go over them this evening. We need a plan for while he's in Brazil.
