I woke up at 7:30 a.m. again. I ran through my usual routine while watching the news. Then I ate breakfast. I made scrambled eggs, but kicked them up a notch. I added in some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, not on top but in the scrambled egg mixture before putting them in the pan. I saw Amanda order them this way once. They were very good.

I called the barber (it's been too long!) and got a 1:15 p.m. appointment for today. So, I took my time shaving, showering and getting dressed. I had another cup of coffee while I waited.

I left and got my hair cut. I paid her double and told her Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (like I always do every year).

From there, I stopped and got a few things from Kroger's. Then I went home. I put away the groceries. After that, I warmed up two hot dogs for my lunch.

I worked on the computer and listened to the CD Jake and Carla sent me for my birthday. I can see why Jake likes Guy Clark. I'll have to listen to it many more times to decided for sure, but so far my two favorites are "Stuff that works" and "The Randall knife." Excellent!

Around 4:00 p.m.,Vicky called and said that Yanessa was doing much better and they were coming over. I said, "No! No! I thought you said you were going to call me in the morning and let me know. I already made other plans for tonight." She said, "I'm sorry. I don't remember. It was a long day and half the night."

Sidebar: She did take Yanessa  to the doctor yesterday afternoon. By that time, Yanessa's eyes were swollen shut! She called me around 7:00 p.m. from the pharmacy, picking up her prescriptions (amoxicillin and eye drops). The official diagnosis was a bad cold and an allergic reaction to Daniel's parent's dog.

I apologized and she apologized and we agreed to visit tomorrow.

My doctor's office called. They never got the clearance form from the surgeon and wanted to call his office, but they didn't know which one (he has three). So. I told her the Livonia office. She said she'd get it taken care of.

I left at 5:30 p.m. to go meet Amanda and her mother, Fran, at the Elks Club for Bingo. I didn't win anything (as usual) and left with a very sore butt. Those chairs are awful!!!

When I walked out, the cold was amazing! I don't think my heater ever warmed up on the mile ride home. It was 0 degrees here, but in the burbs it was -10 to -18 degrees overnight. I opened the cupboard doors under the sink and let the downstairs faucets drip so my pipes wouldn't freeze before I went to bed.
