I'm still cleaning and sorting and pitching, even though it's been a month and a half since my last gainful employment. I've spent enough time downstairs with my weights that my back feels healthy enough to start working on crunches and other things, so I dug out my big purple exercise ball last night and sat on it through about half of "Beowulf". My back was noticably tired when I got up...a good sign!
This morning I got up earlier than I have these past few days, ate and was getting ready to call the vet to see about Frankie's follow-up shot to last months annuals when Dottie's youngest sister called from Vermont. It seems their 2002 Intrepid had just had it's oil changed and blew a head gasket on the way home...I'm hoping Dodge will cover it for them, she deserves some luck!
Got Frankie to the vet, came home and spent a 1/2 hour making peace with him (much faster than last month) and now I have to go run a few errands; a printer cartridge, an oil filter for Dottie Malibu, and a stop by Lowe's because among other things I need to get back to fixing the hot water side of my plumbing. A while back I changed the shut-off valve going out of the hot water tank; this time I'm going to change the line going in and put another shut-off in it, that way if I have to change the rest of the manifold in the basement I don't have to shut off the whole house.
Dottie is off tomorrow. If she'll forgive me I might try and talk her into going to see "Wall-E" as I missed "Iron Man" and she missed the "X-Files" movie...
See you all on Wednesday...may the week be kind!
