Very Busy Yesterday, And Very Tired

I got a lot of things done yesterday. I finally got my driver's license renewed. It expired on my birthday last month! I wanted to get my new license with the "veteran" designation - something that's new for Texas. So I procrastinated, planning to dig out my DD 214 for proof of my honorable discharge. I procrastinated too long. I went a couple of weeks ago to renew my license, but that's the day my car died, so instead of renewing my license, I went to the car mechanic. By the time I was done having my car taken care of, it was too late to go back for the license.

I also got some merchandise mailed - it was something that I ordered by mistake and had to send back. If you know me at all, you know I don't get out of the house much, and usually like to put things off until one day when I must leave - usually because I'm out of food. And that's what happened yesterday.

I also tried to borrow some money, but didn't have the necessary paperwork with me, so that had to be postponed. The people I went to borrow the money from have now called me three times to see if I'm coming back!!! They really want that interest I'll be paying.

I got some groceries, too, yesterday. I'm good for a couple of weeks now! And so are the pets.

The final thing I did resulted in some bad news. I took Roscoe to the vet to find out, once and for all, why he's pooping in the house and having trouble standing up and walking. Well, it appears he has a torn ACL in his knee. Instead of trying to explain, I'll just give you this link, where you can learn all about it, if you like. For now Roscoe is taking some medications, but he will most likely have to have surgery, which will cost a minimum of $800. The vet said I'd be able to make payments. That's one of the benefits of being a steady, paying customer.

I'd stayed up all night the night before (Sunday night). Not really by choice but because I couldn't really sleep. I watched another movie on my iPhone that I didn't like much. It was a "chick flick," and I don't usually like those much, but I already had it so I watched it. It was "Love and Other Drugs." Because I'd stayed up all night, but yesterday afternoon I was exhausted. I went to bed at about 7:00 p.m. And I fell asleep real fast! Got up today at 4:00 p.m., so I'll probably be up all night tonight, too!
