Herself: Met N, the lady I replaced at the store…..she back just as I leave. I got to price cookbooks yesterday. Hospital calls every day with more preop stuff. Never had anything like all these calls before. Ate too much with the Jim’s.
Balance: Waiting an hour for the Jim’s at Phil’s BBQ, while a very thin Doc Jim was waiting for the visiting nurse who was running very late. We survived despite ourselves.
Surgery. You used to pay, go in, have tests, have surgery, recover. Now you go to doc A, get tests, go to Doc B, get tests, have the hospital call three times on three different days and mail packages to you, then go in, have surgery……and who knows what happens next after that to cost more money. I’m sure liability is the culprit. I’ll be grateful to have a hand after all this.
Lunch….I eat now, they eat then…….but this one week I have company eating before the reading. Is that like eating before the first act? These are such brilliant women that I feel honored to be with them. Sometimes I feel my writing is just doggerel just as I feel my sketches are just doodles.
