This blogging is a vicious circle. If you want readers, you have to post something. But when you post and get very few comments, it is discouraging, so you don't post. Round and round we go. The truth is I have been lazy. I may think of things to post, but sitting down and doing it is another thang all together. I think my blogging may be light for a while - catch as catch can.
This weekend the GGs and family came over on Saturday afternoon. We blew up the kiddie pool, and they brought their slip-n-slide. It made for fun in the sun. Aunt Jes joined the GGs in the pool making it an even better time. Toby rode by on the motorcycle giving them a target to shoot.
I sat in the shade and rocked Mr. T and watched the fun. And yes, we did get shot with the water-guns. Toby grilled supper and made daiquiris. The only thing that was not fun was the wind, and it was howling.
On Friday Toby and I went to the doctor to get some of the shots recommended for Ecuador. To say that I am not big on getting shots is putting it mildly. I hate shots. After talking with the Health Dept. in OKC and looking at the Center for Disease Control website, I called a local doctor earlier in the week to see what he could do for us rather than driving to the City for shots. He said he could do a couple of shots here, and we could get meds for malaria and typhoid at the pharmacy. Okay, so I made an appointment to get shots. When the doc came in, he acted like we were there to "discuss" the shots. He asked if we knew what we wanted - he did not know what the recommended shots were. I told him he could look it up as easily as I did. He left the room and eventually came back more knowledgeable. He did say, "At this time of year you might want to consider getting all the shots..." Toby pointed out that Ecuador is on the equator and temps were pretty much the same year around. "Oh yeah." he said. Eventually we decided what shots we would get, and the doc said, "So you want to get those today?" No, we want to pay another forty dollars and come in next week, too. Duh. After another long wait a young lady came in with the shots, and even after I told her my left arm was already sore (pulled muscle), she gave me the tetanus shot in that arm and told me that I should move my arm lots, because it was going to be sore. Sure enough! My left arm has been very sore this weekend. Thanks. Did I mention that I hate shots and getting them makes me very cranky? I was a big baby all weekend.
