A rushed day

Psalm 31:14 But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.

Stonehenge, July 2017

Today was payday. I needed to go to the bank, run errands, and do a variety of other things. Robert was supposed to take Mike to breakfast between 9:30-10 and give me a full 2 hours. It didn’t turn out that way. I texted Robert at 9 that I was leaving the house. No response. I did my banking and in the car texted Robert again, no response. I ended up going home and waking him up and telling him that Dad was waiting for him. He said, Sorry, I forgot and I will get right up. So I went to the downtown area, near the library, to pay the water bill. Calling Robert as I drove, texting him – no response. I decided I had better get back home to take Mike out myself, when FINALLY! At almost 11 Robert let me know he was with Mike. By then I was stuck in traffic on Ramsey, heading toward Kathleen from the downtown area. grrrrrrrrr

Since I knew Mike would be taken care of for at least an hour, I went to Kohl’s, paid my bill; then I had to go to Staples, and the mailbox place; from there I ran to pay the electric on the house, and then to pay the Spectrum bill. It was almost noon, and I went back to the house. I wasted so much time having to drive back and forth! It’s frustrating at best, I didn’t get finished with what I needed to do, and I won’t be able to get out again before next week sometime.

Tonight we went to dinner with friends, and Mike decided he needed his evening meds before we left – by the time dinner arrived he was acting almost like he was drunk, slurring his words, and leaning sideways. He was acting disoriented and confused. I was so upset, and so sad watching him, it was all I could do not to cry. Fortunately, the couple we were with understood, but still…….

Mike went to bed as soon as we got home, and I am still awake. I’m tired, but I’m also feeling sad for Mike. I don’t know if I’m going to attempt to go out to dinner with friends again, I might just have some ladies in during the day for tea, or coffee, and a visit. At least that shouldn’t upset Mike in any way.
