Cloudy-ish day here. No rain, and occasional peeks of sun. Cool and a bit damp.
Went grocery shopping this morning, and took Nougat with us. I sat in the car with her. She was overjoyed to get to come along. We haven't been taking her with us to shop lately, and yesterday we left her home for 4 hours while we were at Ellie's, so she earned a treat.
Ellie was supposed to go to WalMart today, but as she was getting on the bus, she got dizzy (from her medication), and she fell. Again. Now she's all sore and bruised on her other side. Just when she was starting to heal from her last fall. Poor Ellie.
I got some lovely surprise phone calls yesterday for my birthday. My friend Linda phoned from B'klyn. My friend from high school, Jonathan called from Maine. Even, believe it or not, D from Texas called!! Unfortunately, by the time I got to the phone, he'd left a message and hung. (He just said "Happy Birthday, GW".....but still.....he CALLED.....he never calls me! I was stunned!)
I was also surprised by who DIDN'T call......Karen. Though I guess I'm not really all that surprised. She hasn't called in months. I only talk to her if I call her, or if Scott calls me (or I call him) and she happens to be home and he gives her the phone. I didn't get a card from her, either......which is also not that surprising. It makes me sad though, cause we used to be so close, and we talked every single day, even though we lived right across the street from each other. And now.....nothing.
I may end up talking to her tomorrow....when I call to wish Scott a happy birthday.
I'm sorry to see the friendship fade, but she's changed a lot over the last few years, and isn't the person I remember.
Anyway, my birthday turned out to be not-so-bad after all. Not what I'd hoped for or wanted....but that's how it goes. Mom said we're going out tomorrow night (Brother's off), so, I'll still get my fancy birthday dinner. I won't think of it as belated, or an afterthought.....but as an excuse to keep celebrating!!
Well, Nougat's busily ringing the bells to go out, and it is just about her potty time. I don't have a lot to write anyway, so I'll close here.
