Back home from Florida with a few things on my plate
I was completely bushed last night when I arrived home. I had not been able to sleep much the night before, and after spending 12 hours driving or flying, I was so happy to touchdown at the Seattle airport.
The flight companions sitting next to me on both legs of the journey were wonderful. Laura was a 38-year-old lobbyist living in Florida. Raymond was a 24-year-old student from Jersey City.
I was also able to catch close to a two-hour nap from Chicago to Seattle. I am happy to have purchased one of the neck pillows in Tampa for way too much money.
Arriving at rush hour on a Friday afternoon is not the best time to keep driving, so RGD and I stopped for dinner about 4:30 p.m. for dinner buffet at a casino in Tacoma. He then drove, while I dozed off and on, as we made our way back to my place. I barely remember him dropping me off before he left for his hour plus trip back to his home.
Asleep by 8 p.m., I did not wake up until 6 p.m. I am still very tired. My legs are not nearly as swollen this morning, but they are still achy. I am going to take it easy for the next few days and see what happens.
If they do not clear up and get better, then I will head back down to Urgent Care on Monday. Perhaps, there could be something else going on, or the cellulitis was not eradicated with the last batch of antibiotics. I guess we shall see.
Today, I do have to make my way to the post office to mail out two more post cards (totaling nine) now that some are arriving and being registered on Postcrossing.com .
I was disappointed not to have received a postcard in my mailbox just yet, but am hoping that I will receive one soon. I know it takes awhile to get into a system and get it moving.
I also need to get to the libraries to pick up some things being held for me at both the Pierce and Kitsap branches. I will have several series to watch over the next 10 days before I get back to work on the 1st of December.
I need to get to Trader Joe's or the commissary to buy a few grocery items that are necessary. Thankfully, it is not to buy food for the holiday. I am glad that I will be going out to dinner for Thanksgiving, so I do not have to cook or clean up. Once families dissolve, and people do not make invitations, the big get-togethers seem less important. It is another day to spend time with a chosen one or two to have a dinner together with good food, low stress, and good conversation.
Time for me to get up and walk around a bit. I am hoping that will help some with my legs. Other than that, I will put my feet and legs up and relax!
Have a great Saturday!
