Sigh. The last Friday in August. A week from now, Lord willing, will be shudder September. Yuck!! Meaning Winter, an Ohio winter, a NORTHERN Ohio winter at that, is not far away. Yuck!!
Up early this morning, and that after a not-much-sleep night. Wife has a doctor appointment. Doctor moved earlier this year, he'd been just a couple miles from here, more than walking distance, but no big deal. He is, like all too many these days, essentially a well-compensated employee of one of those healthcare systems based around a couple of hospitals and clinics, all forced upon an unwilling nation by the vile wretches who force the abomination of Obamacare upon us. He started to "get the drift" of Big Changes coming, and shifted from one of these systems to another. As a result, we now have to make a l-o-o-o-o-o-ng drive to around the southern third of the county south of us. We're located around midway in this county, so we're going a long way. Not just as the crow flies, but the trip about requires driving on the various Interstates and limited access highways. Brings us out about half a mile from our destination, but the miles traveled are not quite double what the crow flies distance would be. So instead of a 5-10 minute drive, it's about a 45 minute drive. Each way. So, for her 08:00 appointment, we left at 07:10, got there about 07:51. In there for a bit under an hour, then home. We had some deliveries due today, courtesy of UPS and the US Mail, and we needed to be there to receive them. So home. Finally stuff arrived while she was taking a nap. She woke. We had errands to run, one being to the cell phone joint to deal with a minor issue. Afterwards, she needed to a prescription filled, one they were calling in. So we went to the Big Box store whose pharmacy was to fill the prescription. Which they hadn't received yet. We had them call the doctor, went and got some fill-in items, came back. Doctor office hadn't picked up phone, they left a message, we promised to come back tomorrow. Home. En route home, got an urgent message from next-door niece: she got called into work early, so we flew in the drive, made a sandwich for Dear Wife, and she went across the back yard to help "watch" the Little One.
I'm here, doing laundry and such, dealing with the niece's dog (I am NOT a dog lover, not at all), and some around-the-house stuff. Wife should be home in about half an hour. I have clothes in the dryer now.
