Oh boy, it’s fun to write blogs of nice days, where everything comes up roses! In about an hour’s time this evening everything turned up-side-down for me!
We’re getting ready to go to our family camp. It’s such a big job to pack our camper and be ready to go when Jerry says it’s time to go! There are only the two of us…how on earth did I get everything packed when there were seven of us???!!! I’m taking a break here because I’ve got to write this down! It’s been one of those evenings!
I was filling our pill containers, you know the kind that hold all the pills for a week. Oh no…one of Jerry’s pills was almost gone! It was after 8:00 PM! Jerry said I couldn’t call the drug store because they were already closed. I was pretty sure the store stays open until nine. I looked for my phone so I could call the prescription in…
Where’s my phone? I hunted and hunted to no avail. I called my number on Jerry’s phone so mine would ring and I could find it…no ring. We looked up the phone # of the restaurant where we ate supper. No phones were left there. I’m getting sick.
I called the drug store on Jerry’s phone. Yes, they’re open until 9:00 but there is a problem. This prescription has run out, the pharmacist will have to call the doctor’s office tomorrow to see if it can be refilled, “But…we’re leaving in the morning and won’t be back for eight days! He has to have his medicine!” I informed the girl. Okay, they’re so nice they gave me enough pills to hold him over until we get back.
I was still looking for my phone…I kept calling my number hoping it would ring and I could find it…no. It wasn’t in our house. I called, in the garage, hoping I’d hear a ring in the car…no. I finally walked out to the 5th wheel and called my number again…it rang!!! Yeah! I found my phone!
I drove to the drug store and got there after 8:30 but they were so kind. The girl had enough pills in a bottle to last Jerry until we get home. Meantime they’ll call the doctor and get it refilled.
As I was driving away from the drug store I passed a 7/11 store. Oh my goodness they’re giving free Slurpee’s today because it’s 7/11! I deserve a Slurpee after all I’ve been through! I parked my car again and walked up to the door with a huge smile on my face! Oh no…the free Slurpee’s ended at 7:00 PM! The one time I want a Slurpee and I can’t have one, unless I pay for it. Well, I’m not going to.
I’m driving home, I live in the country. It’s a very pleasant drive. The speed limit is 50 and that’s what I was driving. Suddenly a young deer comes running up to the road…! I slammed on my brakes! I guess I scared the deer because he turned around and ran away! There was only one, sometimes there are several. So I cautiously drove the rest of the way home.
What an evening! And on top of it all, I’ve got a horrible cough. It comes when I least expect it and just takes my breath away. But we’ll be leaving in the morning. Actually we live close enough to come home any time and we do sometimes come home during the week to take care of things here.
So there you have it…all in the day of me! Life is not dull…life is interesting and fun… sometimes nerve wracking but I wouldn’t change it for anything. God is good.
