This week has gone by with super-sonic speed. Let me take a deep breath and catch up. I spent more of Tuesday with GK and Kat, running around on various errands. To begin with, I met them at Kat's and we went to the mall to shop for an outfit for her (Kat) to wear to the wedding. The found a very nice black and grey suit ($139), and I found two lovely things on the clearance rack, a green top with rickrack at the neckline, and a great little jersey knit dress in shades of plum and pink---a riotous mod floral print---$30 for BOTH pieces, thank you very much.
Then GK and I joined Kat for an appt with her neurologist---found out she was supposed to be using a patch that he gave her last month, but she brought it home, put it down and forgot it. So, since I'm the one who's local, I'm going to be supervising her meds---the doc says the patch may help with her cognative functions, but she has to wear it consistantly for at least a week before we can expect any improvement.
From there, we visited Merritt Island Goodwill, where GK and I played "Let's Make a Deal", namely that she'd pick up the tab for my loot if I'd watch Thing 1 and Thing 2 for her while she had lunch with a friend on Wednesday. Yes, yes, yes! We also found a snazzy RED suit for Kat to wear at the wedding (colors and red, white and black), $20.
Ended up back at her hotel schmoozing til dinner time, when I got invited to join them at the Chinese Buffet---the one on the Island that regularly has salmon and duck on the evening menu.
Wednesday, I spent 3 hours in the hotel room with the Things, who were engaged with various electronic devices---I watched two hours of What Not to Wear
and an hour of Overhaulin'
before GK got back, then I came home and devoted a few hours to a WIP.
Thursday...was a sleeper. Talked to GK on the phone, they had stuff going on, so I *thought* it was going to be a quiet evening, but NO. missybrat
called me around 7PM and announced a kidnapping. She and her SO took me to the Chinese Buffet in Melbourne (mere blocks from my former place of work), where I gorged on still more salmon---second time this week, woohoo!---and visited her place (Now I know how to get there!)---and wrapped it up with a trip to WalMart. I got in late enough that I *still* haven't seen the season finale of Royal Pains
and I met GK and company at the Rockledge Goodwill---I found the greatest little pink jacket---trapeze style with two buttons at the collar, VERY Jackie O---I *must* find a little pillbox hat to go with it, it's perfect with the Macys dress and the shoes I found at WalMart.
Got GK to pin the dress I'm modifying for the wedding---never mind the vision I had of the two of us over at Kat's spending a quiet hour or two getting it DONE. Oh hell no---the Things are allergic to Kat's cats, and so doesn't trust them alone at the motel for any length of time, so I went over there after the Goodwill trip with my sewing box and she pinned it in place in eight minutes flat, because then they had to run out for another doctor visit.
Sometime soon, I need to take te dress over to Kat's and wrestle with it and her sewing machine for an afternoon. I want to make certain it's exactly right, because once I cut it, that's all she wrote.... GK also left my birthday
present, which will come in handy. Lawn mowing? Haircut? Remains to be seen....
Anyway, tonight is movie night at church---yay, pizza!---and then I'll go over to Kat's, call GK to meet me there, and we'll review Kat's meds so I'll know what's what.
GK and company go home tomorrow. I love her, but wow, trying to keep up with her can be exhausting!
