Visitation

I’ve been a bit distracted over the past several days. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Genesee, Sarah, and one of their friends came to town earlier in the week, so I’ve had little micro-visits from them as they’ve been coming and going and enjoying their vacation here in Ohio. I knew this was a “them” versus a “Gen” visit, so I figured they’d be on the go most of the week and that I wouldn’t get as much time as I would on a solo visit. But then, due to an emergency at home, their stay got cut even shorter than expected. ๐Ÿ˜ So their planned trip to Cedar Point, and our planned dinner at Jack’s and possible visit with Mom and Dad all wound up getting the axe.

I saw her for a few minutes when they first arrived, so she could drop off some donuts and diet shake mix things that she’s been taking so I could try them. ๐Ÿคค The next day I saw her for a few more minutes when she dropped off Nesh so they could visit Amish Country sans puppy, and then for a few minutes when they picked Nesh back up and delivered some Heini cheese (*giggle*) and a selection of cheese crowns. ๐Ÿค” Hmm… I guess that was it. It seems that I should have taken them up on their invitation to go out to eat with them earlier in their trip.

Nesh is a big horse of a dog, but he’s really well behaved. I’ve never seen a dog that paysย  so much attention (along with perfectly timed head tilting)ย when you talk to him. ๐Ÿบ He missed his mommy the entire time they were gone, but he still tolerated me and my lack of knowledge on how to work a dog. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜… Maven wasn’t thrilled about our company for the day, but by the end of it she at least wouldn’t run off… and instead she’d just kinda glare at him as he’d walk around the living room or occasionally come over to sniff at her. ๐Ÿ˜พ

I had a couple appointments yesterday and today, both of which went without incident, so now I’m just readjusting to “normal” and getting ready to do up my dishes and laundry, before I tackle the much bigger task of taking apart my current bed frame before assembling the new one. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ It’s much lower to the ground and doesn’t require a box spring, so it’s just something different to see if I can prevent my back from getting fucked on a semi-regular basis when I sleep on that mattress. ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I’ve recently started (somewhat) using my email again, but their visit (despite it coming in brief chunks) had my head relatively full already, so I’ve not been checking it over the past few days. I don’t think I’ll get back into it tonight, but I’m going to give it a shot tomorrow before I really get my day started. It was nice seeing Gen, but it’ll be nicer when she (hopefully) comes back in a few months on her own, with a little more time for being a potato here at the house with me, just hanging out and really catching up.

Expropriated Cycles

This proves that I should always make “after the fact” posts, because despite being all geared up with my medical and workers comp projects, I ended up having Cassi come down and stay over last night… which was actually just the mental break that I needed from all of that stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean, I did keepย working on it as she was here, but with her as a distraction it kept it all from consuming my brain and occupying 100% of my thought cycles as I worked. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

But while she was here (among other progress) I got names, numbers, and addresses for everyย local doctor that may be accepting new patients, everyย local urgent care that appears to offer services greater than the “I skinned my knee” or “My butthole really itches” type stuff, and every oral surgeon in the area so I can get more serious about getting my remaining wisdom teefs cut out. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I also got new info from BWC and my BWC Rx provider, so that stuff is in much better shape as well. And the pharmacy was also updated, so my meds might possibly, hopefully, maybe get filled in a more timely fashion. ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ

Now that I think about it, I probably got more done with her here than if she wasn’t. ๐Ÿคจ And without getting twitchy. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ She worked on several things that she needed to do as well, taking advantage of the relative peace and quiet here compared to her house full of family. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Of course she gave her brain a break as well (the main point of her staying) by making and painting some picture frames, and catching up on the last few episodes of NCIS that she still had to watch on Netflix. ๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ“บ I think Maven was even happy for the unexpected visit, ‘cuz she made up to Cassi way more than usual this time. ๐Ÿ˜ธ

We talked quite a bit about what’s going on with my health at the moment, along with all kinds of random thoughts that come along with that topic… so it was nice to be able to talk some of that stuff out with her. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I’m not exactly sure what the plan will be for tomorrow and Friday. ๐Ÿ˜ Now that I’ve got all this info compiled I imagine I’ll start calling someone… meh… I’ll figure it out when that time gets here. I’m gonna stay in chill mode for the rest of the evening if possible.
