|The only good thing that happened yesterday was the 2.6
inches of rain that fell yesterday morning. The remainder of the day was
one of those days that makes you wish you had never bothered to get that
First off, when I went to leave for the gym I could not find my car
keys. This is not unusual. I often temporarily misplace them by putting
them somewhere and forgetting where I left them. After a frantic search
for ten minutes I asked Bob to loan me his because I would late for Body
Pump class. Off I went to the gym then drove over for a short visit with
my friend Nancy and pick up some shirts I needed for a CBCR merchandise
Upon arriving back home and pulling into the driveway I noticed the
front left gutter of the house had been pulled loose by the heavy
rains/leaves. Bob had noticed when he had the dogs our and met me
downstairs as I pulled into the garage to get a ladder and the gutter
nails we use to repair that problem. After getting the gutter repaired
and cleaned of leaves and debris it was back inside to eat a snack and
check my mail.
After lunch I started retracing my steps from the last time I knew I
had my keys which was Saturday night after a trip over to the nursing
home. Bob and I looked everywhere both logical and weird, NO KEYS. I
have never lost a set of keys in my life, ever. Misplaced, yes, but
never lost. I took a shower and looked some more. By this time it was
mid-afternoon and we had determined the keys were not going to show up.
During all this Bob was dealing with Social Services about Lenore's
Medicaid eligibility on the phone and faxing stuff to her. We decided I
might as well go get keys made and make an afternoon visit to Lenore.
While I was at the nursing home Bob called to say he needed Lenore's
checkbook which was in my pocketbook. I headed back home to take Bob the
checkbook then took off to the Trooper place to get new car keys. On the
way home I also stopped and had a couple of extra house keys made. I continued
looking for my keys until dinner time.
After dinner Bob sat down to do something at his computer in the den
and it had gone south on him. I guess he will have that story on his
page this morning. By this time I was exhausted mentally from trying
to visualize all my movements from Saturday night. I cleaned house on
Sunday and do not recall seeing them and I did not go anywhere Sunday in
This morning after doing all the things I was supposed to get done
yesterday afternoon I will head over to SciWorks first making a visit at
the nursing home. Bob is meeting Lenore at the orthopedic surgeon's
office this afternoon. She gets x-rays and updates on how her legs are
mending and what the next phase of recovery will be.
More rain is predicted for today and tonight. The rain we got
yesterday was not wide spread. Some people got several inches while
others got less than a half.
