Good day today. Cool, brrezy, with a few light sprinkles ofvrain. Not enough, though. It's been so dry and windy, that they're starting to warn about fires. Not good.
I had to call the Dr today. One of the Rx she sent to the drugstore was for only 4 tablets. Since I didn't get the med till late Fri afternoon, I couldn't do anything about it till today. So, I called, got the automated phone system, wandered through the phone maze, both the nurse's voicemail. Left a message.
Surprisingly, she called back about an hour and a half later. She was very nice, said she'd let the Dr know. She also gave me the results of the blood work. All good. They're still waiting for my records from the previous dr, so she can compare test results. But so far, it's all good.
About an hour later, the drugstore called to tell me my prescription was ready. It was too late to ask them to deliver, and I didn't feel like going out, so I'll get them tomorrow. I have one pill left for the morning.
I brushed and combed Nougat this morning. She's still not thrilled with the process, but she's SO much better now than she used to be. And the better she stays, the quicker I can get her done, so the less she has to stay. It's a win-win.
She was so funny last night. It was around 8:30. Mom was in the family room watching TV. Brother was in the living room also watching TV. I went and joined him. Nougat came running into the living room. Brother has his legs up on the sofa. She tried to pull his legs down off the couch. He satvup, and she pulled on his shirt sleeve, trying to get him to go with her. When that didn't work, she ran off, back into the family room. She grabbed Mom's shoe, and came running back to us, with the shoe in her mouth, shaking it furiously. She whacked Brother in the leg with it a few times, then ran off towards the family room, before dashing back to us. She was telling us it was time to all be together in the family room.
She's OK during the day with us being in separate rooms, but come nighttime, once we're done with dessert, she wants us all together. And she sure knows how to get her message across!
Tonight I made Braised Short Ribs in the Instant Pot. Mom was griping this morning about not knowing what to make for dinner, and being tired of the same old things, so I suggested defrosting the ribs. I started getting dinner ready around 3:30, seasoning and browning the ribs, chopping onions, mixing the sauce. Got everything in the IP and by 4:45 we were sitting down to a delicious dinner of ribs, coleslaw, and herbed rice. In case I haven't mentioned it lately, I 💘💘💘 my Instant Pot!!!!
And on that happy note, I'm done.
