Today Was A Work Day!

I used to be a mime…. but now I can talk about it…

Mary was off to work, and I was off to Casa Valencia.  At 9:00 AM, I stopped and ran by the post office to get important mail into the system.  I stopped at Home Depot, and then I dropped by Subway and got a veggie sandwich for brunch.

It was an embarrassing day for me.  I worked two hours trying to put up a toilet paper dispenser in the bathroom, and I could not make it work.  Totally and absolutely frustrated, I went to the year and put in a drip irrigation system for Mary plants.

That turned out to be a bad idea as the temperature was in the 90’s.  I worked for a couple of hours after a quick trip to Home Depot for some fittings.  By 5:00 PM, the system was in, and 50% of the plants were not on a timer!

The forecast was wrong. I was perspiring in the next hour and totally made a black shirt sopping wet!

I called Joe mid-afternoon to talk and tell him about the Delta toilet paper dispenser and my add day fight with it.  He and the boys came over.  He looked at what I had done and said, “Dad, the brackets are on backward!”  It hit me; of course, they are on backward; I am such a doofus.

The boys swam in the pool, and we ordered pizza.  Good thing as Mary didn’t get home until almost 5:45 PM, and she had a horrible day with some moronic patients.  She never mentions medical conditions, HIPA, you know!  But their attitudes are amazing.  One guy didn’t buy the medication she prescribed because it was expensive; the alternative is to go blind; DUH!
