Gosh, I guess lots of people have left town. There have been hardly any vehicles going by my place this morning. Last night there were fireworks somewhere nearby, but I couldn’t see them. SLC sure has lots of events with fireworks. I never know about them until my whole building is reverberating, though.
The weather people keep talking about snow in the mountains this weekend. Despite that, the campgrounds up there are full. Part of me is jealous. I really miss camping. But snow? No thanks!
I do a lot of daydreaming about camping. Besides the fact that I can no longer drive, the biggest problem is that I need electricity to run an oxygen concentrator and CPAP. Camping where there is electricity is expensive….and generally, not as much fun. I love the more primitive places. Sigh…..darn uncooperative body!
I was hungry this morning, so decided to do a simpler egg breakfast than usual. It was still too much for me. I was shaking like a leaf from muscle strain and was very, very short of breath. Grrrrrrrr….. And my eyes are both in the perma-droop position.
Air quality sucks today. One of the condos across the street has a wood burning fireplace. They almost always light it on holidays. The smoke keeps making me choke and wheeze. My neighbor came to my window and I could hear her lungs rattling across the room. Ack!
Here I am waiting for the food to show up
Decisions, decisions….I only have half an onion left and no zukes or good stuff for my usual breakfast of eggs and veggies. I really need to go to FNB and hope for the best. Rain looks imminent, but Wunderground says we are safe until afternoon. I am soooooo darn weak! Just the thought of putting clothes on wears me out. Sigh…..what to do? Well….I went, but my neighbor chickened out.
I stuck my head around the corner. They were getting the food ready at Boing!
It was looking like slim pickings. And wouldn’t you know it! I was at the end of the line again. I went through twice.
3 summer squash, one zuke, 2 tomatoes, 1 potato, an onion, 2 apricots, a salad, paleo cookie dough and a broken cookie.
I mixed up the salad, cut out the rotten spots in the tomatoes and sat down for lunch. YUCK! It tasted like bleach and the tomatoes were too rotten :-( I threw it out. Then I tasted the cookie dough. More grossness to be thrown out. The sugar cookie crumbs were good, though :-) I am thinking that potato is going to be too green to eat, too. Not really worth my dollar. Ick.
An interesting thing happened while in line. My voice was broken. The more I talked to this guy, the more my eyes closed. The left eye shut tight and dripped tears. In the middle of a sentence, my eyelid flew open and my voice worked. It freaked out the guy I was talking to :-) My voice still works a couple of hours later. I wish the rest of me worked. I feel yucky.
Olive climbed up on the pillow my laptop was sitting on, but she didn’t get in the video tonight. Olive is still upset at me for not taking Mestinon. Who knew she was going to be such a good service cat? I hope she will still get me to take my meds on time after this week of no meds!
