I went to bed not long after 10:30 p.m., I think.  I got up briefly at 5-something, but quickly went back to bed.  I got up for the day around 8:00 a.m., I think.

Things were crazy at work.  I was just starting with B. when R.'s laxative worked more quickly than he thought it would.  "Don't worry," I said.  "I have lots of experience with this."  I cleaned him up, and then got B. cleaned up and relatively settled.  Then I took a little break, and then cleaned Miss Daisy's ears and put ointment in them.  She whined a little, and kept moving her head, and ran behind R.'s chair a couple of times, but I I got ointment in both of her ears.

I stopped at home briefly to get cleaned up, and then went to get my yearly mammogram, which was relatively painless.  I stopped at the grocery store, and then came home.  I think I got all the things I needed to get done today done.

I got to work on time.  I put the ointment in Miss Daisy's ears.

After work, Mom and I went out and about, including to Target and Walmart.  It was a productive trip for me.

We got home and had a quick dinner, and then I went to meet a lady to talk to her about being a support person for her son.

I went to bed early, maybe 10:30 p.m.  I got up for the day around 8:30 a.m., I think.

I made it to work on time.  It was a "getting nowhere fast" day.  The veterinarian and her assistant came and put lotion in Miss Daisy's ears.  Miss Daisy cried while they did it.  R. was upset when he heard her cry.  B. was cranky, but nothing new there.  He was working his way through "Lovers and Other Strangers" and said that everyone needed to be quiet so he could concentrate on distinguishing between the names "Finn" and "Fitch."  Josh said around the time of publication of that one that she had some regrets about making their names so similar, because even she was having trouble keeping the names straight.

I dropped paperwork off at the local home health aide company office.

I completely forgot that I'd scheduled a mammogram appointment for mid-afternoon until a few hours later, well into the evening.  Instead, I went home and cooled off in the air conditioning, and read some Huffington Post articles about how some people who call themselves Christians are ignoring the great majority of the things Jesus said.

I.P., my home health aide coordinator until I wasn't sure who was in charge, called to say she'd been promoted, and explained her version of whatever the heck was going on with who was coordinating what, or as much of that as she could explain.

Later in the evening I finished an editing job that I had started Saturday.  I'm glad to have that done with.

Basically all I know is that I'm working tomorrow, and R. and I will be putting the antibiotic lotion in Miss Daisy's ears.

I went to bed before midnight and got up for the day a little after 9:00 a.m.

Mom and Dad headed out a little before 10:00 a.m. to get furniture from Uncle D. and Aunt P.S.'s house.  They are downsizing and moving from their house in north central New Jersey to an apartment in New York City.

I had to work.  Things were okay with B. and R.  The veterinarian hadn't showed up yesterday to treat Miss Daisy's ears, but she seemed like her usual self.

I stopped by a couple of stores in the area before I went home.

Mom and Dad called around 6:00 p.m. to say they were heading home.  J. called a while later to say he'd gotten in an accident with the moving van he was driving, but he'd get the furniture to Mom and Dad eventually.  I sent him a text when Mom and Dad got home, and he called.  J. said that physically he was okay, which Mom said was the important thing.  She was upset about the accident, though.

I went to bed a bit before midnight.  I got up briefly around 7:30 a.m., and then went back to bed until around 9:00 a.m.

I was able to get moving faster than sometimes, and got to work a little early.  It didn't make my time there any shorter.  B. is reading a book a day.  I'll have to teach him to read e-books very soon.

I got an editing job to do, and worked on that for a while.  I went to meet a family with a special needs son.  I may watch the son after school.

I went to bed around 12:30 a.m., I think.  I got up at 8-something.

I ended up doing various things before work, including laundry.  I got to work on time.  It turned out to be a laundry day there, too, as I thought it would be.  I got a decent amount done.  B. got relatively settled.  He told me that during one trip I made to the laundry room down the hall, while R. was out shopping, Miss Daisy was crying.  I checked on her.  The veterinarian looked in on Miss Daisy this morning and will bring proper medicine for her ears tomorrow.  Miss Daisy wasn't crying while I was in the apartment, though she was rubbing the sides of her head against the floor.  I cuddled and petted her for a while, and had her sit in my lap.  She is a bit chunky to be a lapdog, but she's a sweet-natured dog.

I communicated with a couple of people about watching their special needs teens in the afternoon.

I went to bed at 11:30 p.m.  I woke at 6:00 a.m. and got up for the day at 6:30 a.m.

I got to work all right.  Things were relatively peaceful, except that R. was discombobulated and upset to find out that Miss Daisy has ear infections and needs dental work.  He had no idea how he'd pay for dental work on a dog.  They do know a vet who will take payments on installment, though.  Miss Daisy looked very different.  She'd looked rather like a white mop or cotton ball, but was shaved pretty close for the summer.  I could see her eyes again, and her face was much narrower than I'd thought it was.  Also her legs were much more slender than I'd thought, but her body was as chunky as it felt like.  Miss Daisy definitely needs to get some exercise.  Also, R. needs to stop feeding her people food.

After work, I chilled at home for a little while, and then went out and about, including to the grocery store.  I met up with L.B. at the library.  She made flash cards for herself on medical terminology while I read through a Latin/English dictionary to find definitions of Latin terms for parts of the body and certain illnesses, and wrote the words down for her.  Of course I started reading random Latin words along the way, some of which explained a lot.  "Words are fun!" I said.  I'd had two years of Latin in high school back when, but kept up with it to some extent by learning the scientific names for plants and animals, and a fair number of medical terms.  B.C. was teaching a group in the library.  We said hi when she was done teaching.


L.B. and I went to the food court in the mall for dinner, and then met up with a group of folks who get together on Thursday nights to chat in ASL.  I ended up fingerspelling "forgotten all" when people signed to me.  I did learn the sign for "Latin," though.  I think L.B. learned how to sign "brain exploded from so much studying."

I went to bed fairly early and got up for the day at 8:00 a.m.

I got to work a bit early, but ended up working until the usual time I leave.  I got home and chilled out for a while.  When I felt a bit more up for it, Mom and I went out and about.  We stopped at the library to return books, and ended up going to Walmart afterward.  I accomplished far more than I thought I would accomplish today.

I talked to L.B. for a while in the evening.
