Rainy days and Fridays....


When I took the above picture, it was just as dreary out as it is today.  It's not a day where one would want to go out. Since it's Good Friday, may people had off today, and I'll bet that no one did much of anything unless one had to do something.

Not having any fixed plans for the day, I decided to relax until the afternoon.  This turned out to be a mistake, as I found that when I turned on the Hot Water for my shower, only Cold Water came out.  There was no way I was going to take a shower and shave while freezing my buns off. So I called the appropriate list of phone numbers and (with some help) was told that the plumber would be coming over around 5 pm to resolve the problem.  There went doing an off-Broadway play tonight.

Lili has been hounding me to see the dermatologist, and I've been stalling a little.  Part of me freezes when getting ready to see a new doctor - especially in a specialty I've never encountered before.  So I'll likely end up making the call next week and then keeping my fingers crossed that I got to a good doctor.  (Yes, I know that they call the person who graduates last in his class at Harvard Med "Doctor".  But that's not the point.  I've always been nervous when dealing with doctors, and don't like dealing with them.)

GFJ had family over today, so I couldn't call her at will. So when she called from the car on her way home, I had a pleasant chat for a few minutes. Not being honest with her kids is a long term issue for me, as she's currently reluctant to let her adult offspring know that she is dating before her divorce is final. Once it is final, continuing with this charade will no longer have any use, and it will then offend me. But given the long term viability of the relationship, I'm not worried too much.  I take things on a day to day basis, and let things slide that I wouldn't under different circumstances.

Although the plumber fixed the hot water problem around 6 pm, I was no longer in the mood to go outside.  So, for reasons beyond my control, I called it a day without doing much of anything worthwhile....
