I Like My Cell Phone

When it works right I can have a video call with my Schweetie in the hospital; like I did today. At other times I get tired of that damned “Your phone is not registered on a network so you can only make emergency calls” message I get (a lot!) when I try to initiate a call to said Schweetie.

Yesterday the Wx Weenies said there was a chance of Thunderstorms here today before 0800. Didn’t happen. Other Wx Weenie said it was supposed to be a LOT cooler starting tomorrow. Looks to be in the low 70’s; which ain’t that cool around here. So me and the Dog have been taking off all our clothes and going about our day enjoying these waning days of summer. Even after 12 years it’s still a nice walk around the back of the property. Think I’ll put in a couple more paths next summer.

Gotta admit: Having been paying too much attention to the News lately; what with other things on my mind and all. But it seems to me that the Democrats are getting kicked in the teeth a lot lately; what with Biden being such a shitty President and all. Fauci might finally get his comeuppance. Doubt it but one can dream. Anyone else upset that our lives have been totally fucked over by another Democrat Liar? Unfortunately, not enough of us to make a difference.

The Republicans lack balls and half are women. Approximately. But don’t get me started.

What with the love-of-my-life being ill and all, it had me thinking what my life would be like around here without her. Mostly the same but intensely lonely. The day-to-day shit wouldn’t stop; I just wouldn’t have the chance to stop and give my schweetie a smooch or look in on what she’s doing. Which is the main reason we haven’t “spread out” throughout the house (ie: me and my radio stuff in the daylight basement and her on the main floor with her sewing room). Nice to visit with her during the day.

I wouldn’t know what to do with her sewing room either. When we first moved in I convinced her to use the Master Bedroom for her sewing room. Attached bath an all! We use the smaller bedroom as ours. Much less space to chase her around in. (Cause I’m at that age now where the longer I have to chase, the better chance that nothing will happen BUT heavy breathing when I finally do catch.)

Anywho, SWMBO promised she’d call again this evening and I got things to do before hand.

New Sunday.

My Schweetie is going to be in that hospital 3 weeks! Three. Weeks. Damn.

Seems the antibiotics are to take care of any bacteriological issues before they can start giving her some other medications that make bacteriological infections go bug fuck crazy. Something with steroids in it, I think. So, as long as she doesn’t just give up and give in she should be home by the end of the month. She’s also on High (speed or volume) Oxygen for awhile.

I don’t think we’ll be making our planned trip to Mississippi and Ohio this late September – early October. That trip will be put off until next spring. Maybe.

So, the Dog and I have to figure out just what the hell we’re supposed to do around here all by ourselves for the next 3 weeks. SWMBO knows not to leave me alone with the shopping cart (a whole lot of We Need This goes on) or home alone with a hammer. Last time she did she came home to find the fridge moved to another wall and the original wall missing. (And the cabinet that was where the fridge went was moved to a completely new wall space.)

Sometimes it’s easier to ask forgiveness.

She just called and said I could bring her phone to her tomorrow. Cool. Won’t be able to actually visit with her, but, oh well. Whateryagonnado?

Well, did it again. “Took a nap” turned into my first night in months I pretty much slept from 2230 to 0700 without getting up to pee even once. Unusual!

SWMBO was kidding me yesterday about being ableĀ  to turn up the sound on my movies without having to worry about her being overloaded. Tested that out last evening with “Godzilla” (2014) and the “sound bar” turned on. Man, that bass! Surprised the neighbors didn’t come over and tell me to shut that shit off! (Or, good thing they’re about half a click away.)

Took SWMBO’s phone to her at the hospital. They made me sanitize my hands and change to one of their masks to hand the bag to the girl at the desk. Dipshidiots.

Stopped and got some things at the WinCo on the way back. Forgot sugar. Probably have enough for a week but hate getting down to the wire. Speaking of which: My “miles to go on the fuel you have left” meter it just changed to “LOW” when I started the truck. Made it to the Safeway gas though. Put in $70 and still didn’t fill it. $3.85/gal with $0.10/gal “discount.”

Noticed they had the “fly-in” at the Bremerton Airport as I drove past. Unfortunately, by the time I passed by again they’d started packing up and leaving. So I missed it again. That’s like the 3rd year in a row now. I don’t mind missing Belfair Bites (A Taste Of Belfair) but I really enjoy the fly-in.

SWMBO called. She’s doing well. Glad of that.
