I only remember part of one dream last night. The part I remember was Ernie grabbing the carrot toy from Hannah and running off with it. So maybe I should take his carrot to the pet resort. I was thinking thatI should also buy him a ball to take with him, maybe one you can put cookies in. He would have fun with that, I think. Maybe I’ll get them tomorrow between my hair and Dr. Pergola appointment.
Today I will get my piercings after seeing Bart. After he gets upset, I may need a little pain to help me feel better. LOL
I thought I would tell Bart about the car and how I won’t see any $$ from them for a bit as they pay for the car and Christmas. And that I want to see my brother who is not in great health. Which is true. I haven’t seen him in over 2 years or more. I guess I saw him at Greg’s wedding reception. I didn’t see him when I went up for Katie’s wedding.
I also got a lovely note from Marie Kupiec thanking me for the Mass card for Ruth. Ruth was 97 and she told Marie she was ready to go. I know Mike and Tom and Sandy saw Marie about 2 months ago. Maybe I can get Joanne to go visit with me. Marie and Pat saw each other at their doctor. She seemed so happy to hear from me. I would love to show her pics of the girls. Her grandchildren are much older–20s or 30s, I guess. And I think neither Dianne nor David live nearby. So even if Joanne doesn’t want to go, I will. Marie said that she had a Station of the Cross dedicated in memory of the Samson and Kupiec families, so that the Samson name remains in the church (Kupiec, too). I think she said it was Station 11. That may be “Jesus’ body is taken down from the cross.” I have to look it up. Marie and Uncle Bob are the last one’s of their generation left.
I will pick up the girls’ notes to Chris tomorrow after Islam 101 class. Both give me a reason to go out, and I can practice “forcing” myself to get out. Then I can mail it and Brenda’s birthday card on Friday after Juma’. Thursday is Veterans Day and there is no mail (or bank–why I need to get my $$ request in so I have it by Friday so I can pay bills).
Today I have to mail DJames’s birthday card. I nearly forgot it, but got a nice 1st birthday card and sent a check to him. He is my step-grandchild. I got cards for Brenda and Sandy Dawson Fisher while I was out yesterday. Class’s birthday was yesterday. Maybe I will try to call her tonight. I thought that she might be busy celebrating yesterday.
Well, time for Fajr. Still getting used to changed prayer times. Mid-day is the biggest adjustment, then evening are done so early, by 7 p.m. So off I go.
