Mom and I were planning to go to the drugstore and the bakery this morning. I was up early enough that we couldíve gone by 9:30......but then Tim called. By the time I was off the phone, it was 10:30, and neither of us felt like going at that point. So we didnít.
But we did place a Walmart order online. Good thing, too.....Nougat needs food. Iím not sure she has enough to get through the rest of the week. Thankfully, itís supposed to be delivered on Thurs.
All 4 of us went to Ellieís this afternoon (Mom, Brother, Nougat and I). Ellie was happy to see us (especially Nougat). We brought her some eggplant parmigiana and a slice of chocolate cake. We stayed about an hour and a quarter. Thatís a long enough visit for Ellie, cause she tires easily.
Nougat was well-behaved. She snooped all through the house (Brother had to chase her out of Ellieís bedroom a few times). Eventually, she came and lay down in a corner of the kitchen, right near Mom and me, and went to sleep. Canít ask for better than that!
Mom still canít download a Kindle book from their lending library. She was on the phone with support for over an hour yesterday. They diddled around with stuff, and then told her to try again in an hour. She tried again this morning, and still nothing. I went and downloaded the book she wanted, and then ďsharedĒ it with her via the Prime Family library. But she should be able to download books herself. Weíll have to call again, but she wasnít in the mood to try again today.
The lizard is still in residence. Mom found him on her sewing box, then later on the sofa in her room, and even, at one point, on one of her shoes! She wishes he (she? it?) would hurry up and die. I just wish he would find his way back to the great outdoors. I donít mind him being in the house.....as long as I donít find him in my bed! (having had my ex in my bed for 24 yrs, Iíve had enough of sleeping with reptiles)
