Day 381, 382 of Sheltering In-Waiting

Wednesday, Thursday.
Thursday first:

I heard from the PR person, he sent me a review copy of the book. I started reading it tonight, but have stopped for the night. It’s a bit of an interactive book, asking you to find photos of your beloved pet(s) who died and journal along. My project Friday will be to dig up some photos of my beloved pets who crossed the rainbow bridge.

I can interview Reagan Pasternak via email or phone. I am leaning towards email. If you have any questions for her, please leave them in the comments.

~I got an email today asking if I would like to interview Reagan J. Pasternak, actress and author. In case the name is not familiar to you, she was in HBO’s “Sharp Objects”, Syfy and Netflix “Wynonna Earp”, HBO’s “Being Erica”, and BET’s “Ms. Pat”. She is also author of the just released “Griffin’s Heart”. It’s part memoir, part guide for grieving a pet.

I don’t know what to do! I don’t remember actually doing any phone interviews. I’ve submitted interview questions via email before. Doing a phone interview would be a total fan freak out on my part. (I’m fanning myself right now.)

It would be so awesome to get back to doing book reviews here.

I’ll let y’all know what I hear back on this.

Ok, Wednesday, Thursday. I had my deposition preparation Wednesday and discovered they are missing records. They also didn’t send me documents to review (not my first rodeo). So the deposition on Thursday was canceled and to be rescheduled after the records are requested and received.

It was nice to have the break today. I did not sleep much with everything I was anticipating today. My wife and both kids accompanied me to Sam’s Club. I think I’d gone once in the early days of the pandemic. My kids may be 20 somethings, but it was like trying to wrangle toddlers. They were all over the place! Props to the customer who held the family restroom door open (ladies-closed for cleaning). I wore cargo shorts today so my HUGE knee brace was clearly visible. Tomorrow and Saturday PT.

Day 380 of Sheltering In-Waiting

Monday, Tuesday. Monday was PT. I woke up with horrible knee pain. I powered through, but my knee let go when I was side stepping, fortunately, that is done between parallel bars. I did 7 out of 10 and skipped the slant board, which I could have done, but my therapist said “that’s it, let’s get you some ice.” 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

Tuesday was my daughter’s staffing for the group home. That was 35 minutes I can’t get back. Total WOT. Then...let’s just say it got very stressful at home. Then it started again at midnight. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Still doing the countdown because we are not even near the normal before the pandemic.

Day 378, 379 of Sheltering In Happy 28th Birthday to my daughter

Happy Birthday to my daughter who turned 28 years old today! She requested we celebrate her birthday first, before we celebrated Easter. Since Easter dinner isn’t quite ready, we gave in. 

I also forgot to put together the Easter baskets, which ended up being gallon ziplock bags. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I went to Dollar Tree yesterday and looked for those plastic containers for organizing, but the location I went to no longer sells them. I figured I could use those as Easter baskets and then give them to my daughter for organizing when she moves into her apartment. I can’t believe they didn’t have any! I think it may be because they seemed to expand the grocery section.

Ok, happy birthday has been done.

Happy Easter everyone!
