I love having great people around me. I dearly miss Frances, but I just went downstairs to wake up Audrey and Eva, so we can go out for breakfast and after exchanging our morning pleasantries, Audrey got on me about wanting to carry our small load of whites up on my way so I could fold clothes while I wait for everyone to get ready. I’m not medicated yet, so it pretty much hurts to move just about anything, and she knows this, so it was all out of concern for me, but after the two or three weeks, actually I think it was almost four weeks if you include the hospital stay, convalescing in Thailand I know my limits rather well by now. A small basket of underwear and socks isn’t going to kill me. Still, I love how she’s doing her very best to take care of me for the week she’s here.
Today we’re headed out to apply for a joint bank account for me and Noel, then we’re going to have some Denny’s for breakfast to sort of thank Audrey and Eva for being so really really cool and grabbing a bus up here from where they live, about a three hour ride, just to make sure I don’t over do anything. We’re also going to try and catch a matinee of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. My friend back here, Other Shannon, because I’m Proper Shannon among my circle of friends, around hers I get to be Other Shannon, but she brought me an inflatable doughnut which is so much better than what I got from the clinic. I think I’ll be able to pull the couple hours or so in the movie theater after we get home and I do my morning stretches. May even be able to drive without much trouble.
Going to be a good day <3
