E.M. and I judged the floating arrangements. Some were very pretty. We didn't give anyone less than 90 out of 100.
P. called yesterday to ask me to pick her up after a 5:00 p.m. doctor's appointment today. I said it would be easier to take her and then bring her back than to try to follow her directions to the medical center. She's a lousy navigator, and even worse giving directions over the phone. I didn't want to be driving in circles around the borough. I'll bring something to read with me, and we'll see how it goes.
Later: P. decided she was okay with me taking her to the doctor as well as picking her up. That was what I preferred. I took the smaller e-reader with me, and Wicked, which I got from the library. We got to the doctor's office around ten of five. They took P. around five-thirty. Meanwhile we chatted with other people in the waiting room, and I read some of Wicked and texted with S while P. was in with the doctor.
I arranged with S. to go with him to Giovanni's Room on Saturday, but had forgotten that our family holiday celebration was *this* weekend. I tried to reschedule with S. for Sunday. He said that was supposed to be time with his sister. I said to bring her along. After all, no harm in her going to a bookstore. She's certainly well aware that S. is gay. It's no secret.
S. said he'd talk to his sister and see what she said.
P. got done with everything around six-thirty. She'd been fasting all day so they could do bloodwork. I asked if she wanted to go to a Kentucky Fried Chicken/Taco Bell. She likes their fried chicken. P. said she'd like to go to Boston Market.
I called the house to see if the parental units wanted me to pick anything up while I was at Boston Market. They said they were getting pizza. I got an order of creamed spinach at Boston Market. P. paid for it. If I take her driving somewhere, she likes to give me a few dollars.
I dropped P. off and went back to the house, where I had a couple of pieces of pizza and the creamed spinach. I offered to share the spinach, but Mom and Dad had already gotten to dessert by the time I got home.
I read more of Wicked and did some editing.
