I did a lot today and my ankle is thanking me for it. I did a lot of errands and went to lunch with my niece, who I was babysitting today. She came along for the ride to the various places I went to. I showed her the Boston skyline along the Charles River. She was in awe. We took the train in town as I needed to pick up my prescription at my PCP’s office.
I went to Walgreens twice, once to drop off and the other for pick up. I didn’t want to wait as I was hungry and wanted my burrito. I am pretty tired now. Last night I used lidocaine gel because my ankle was angry. I think I might use it again soon as it provided some relief. Not 100% but enough for me to notice. I am glad because I was running out of options with my meds and my PCP still hasn’t called in the prescription form of the xylocaine gel. I don’t know if he is going to.
The temp dropped. I came home to my room being ice cold as I had the window open and the ceiling fan running. Everything in my room was cold, including my bed. It’s getting warmed up a little now but my foot didn’t like it when it went under the covers. I should have shut the fan off but I wasn’t thinking. I shut the window as the temp is going to be the same for most of the week. Our spring days are over, least for now. It’s still a nice sunny day out though.
I was planning on making bacon this morning but my niece didn’t want it. I had already showered and felt tired so I didn’t make breakfast. I thought I would eat at Starbucks but when I got there, I wasn’t hungry. I just got my espresso and went on my way. My niece had a sip and she liked it. I will turn her into a Starbucks junkie yet!
Baseball is tonight. They are up in Toronto, playing the stupid Blue Jays. I wonder how many fans are going to be rude or disrupt play tonight. There is always something going up at the stadium. I don’t understand why people have to be stupid. I’m going to try and listen to the game. I haven’t listened all season, just been getting updates via Twitter or watching the game. I don’t know if I will be up for most of it as I am pretty tired right now.
I told my mother I wanted grilled cheese for supper. I haven’t had one in a long time. I can make it but I always end up burning one side. I can never time it right. It’s better that my mother make it. She does it really good.
I have fallen in love with April the giraffe’s baby. There was a picture of him and his father today and it was so damn cute. He got a complete check up by the vet and he is 5 feet 9 inches and 129 pounds. He is taller than I am! I have always loved giraffes. They are just so majestic to me with their long necks. When my nieces went to the zoo when they were younger and I couldn’t go because I was working, they got me a stuffed giraffe that I have by my desk in my room. I thought that was so sweet of them to get me this animal. I remember when my youngest niece was a toddler, we took her to the Rhode Island zoo, Roger Williams. Man, I was chasing her every where that day. She wanted to go her own way and didn’t want to leave for certain animals. It was a crazy day. I spent more than $80 in the gift shop that day. Nuts. Roger Williams is my favorite zoo. I love going there.
