Another Day Of Running Around
Was warmer when we got up this morning. Keith was supposed to be leaving to head for home today, but then he changed his mind and said he wanted to stay another day. We took Hiker for a walk around the man-made lake at Bridgeport and then brought her home and the two of us headed over to Big Lots. I wanted to see if they had any bar stools for my kitchen island, but the didn't, so we went over to Wal-Mart. I bought some nice ones there, but I got 29” tall ones when I really should have gotten 24” tall ones as the 29” makes me bump my knees some under the counter, but I told Keith I'm not going to take them all apart again, return them, get the 24” and put them together, so I'll just settle and try not to bump my knees too much. I never use my dining room table much anymore since Ben died and when I'm alone, I just eat on a TV tray in front of the TV, but I figured when Keith visits, he and I could sit at the kitchen counter. We went to lunch over at Rattler's. We've been eating out so much since he's been here that I'm sure I've gained some weight. I'll have to cut back again after he leaves. My back has been bothering me quite a bit again today. I thought it was getting better as yesterday it did not bother me the entire time we were wandering around Vasquez Rocks nor did it bother me when we went to the thrift stores.
