Well, Arlington, Virginia to be exact. It’s a clear crisp 37 degrees out today. I’m still tired from the gallbladder surgery and flight. OH, I didn’t tell you….I purchased my ticket back to D.C. on Oct. 14, and about 2:30 started feeling that horrible achy pain in my stomach…I was supposed to pick up my nephew Luke from the bus stop and while sitting there waiting on him the pain got worse and worse, I had to call his Mom, my sister, to come get us. I was NOT going to drive with him in the car with as much pain as I was in. I had her just take me onto the hospital. This was only my 2nd gallbladder attack, but it was only 6 weeks after the first..TAKE THE DAMN THING OUT!! Doc assured me I would be able to make my trip and I did.
So I get to D.C. AND WE HAVE SNOW FLURRIES!! WTH?!?! Last time I came we had a mini blizzard, geeze. But it had been raining and the temp never got cold enough to freeze.
I’m glad to be back. I do worry about my Mom and the rest of the family back in Tuscaloosa, but my Sister will just have to learn how to take care of things on her own and not depend on being able to pop over to Mom’s and ask me to “loan” her the $$ to do this that or the other. Now mind you, I was glad to be able to help her get moved to her & the boys new apt. BUT GEEZE, she did not think things out very well…it has gas heat/hot water…she had a $200 past due ( 2 years old) gas bill that had to be paid before gas could be turned on again….I’ll pay you back on the 21st when I get paid….PLEASE DO…that’s my follow up Doc apts, checked baggage fee & a bit os spending $$ when I get to D.C. got 1/2 of it back so that at least covered the “have to have”, just no spending $$.
Ok, I need some more COFFEE!! I’l try to do better with blogging my days and adventures in D.C. this time.
And yes, THE TICKET WAS ONE-WAY
