At Least the Day's Half Done....
What a 12 hours it has been.
Warning - this is a bit of a continuation of yesterday's whine.
We were pretty tired last night - it's been a rough week with all the peeing going on around here. We had just fallen asleep when we heard Bowser peeing again at 12:30am. So we got up - Jim cleaned the pee and I mopped the floor. We got back to bed at 1am. At 1:15am Bennett woke up and decided that it was time to start the day. He continued his efforts to convince us that it was a good idea to be awake until 6am when he and Jim finally fell asleep in the chair. Meanwhile, I was looking at apple pie recipes online and Bowser peed (sp?) a couple more times outside - not in the house thankfully.
We slept until 9:30 then anxiously rushed to see the orthotic guy at the hospital about Bennett's brace. It was a strange and infuriating appointment as this arrogant guy who may have been having a bad day proceeded to yell at and belittle us and our physiotherapist. We haven't been treated that badly by a "medical professional" in a long time. It left both of us in shock as we weren't sure how to respond. I don't even want to go into what was said because it's all so riduculous but I'll summarize by saying that he insisted his brace was fine. So, we're back to square one but hopefully the shoe modification will work.
Anyway, I'm not sure I'm looking forward to the rest of the day. However, I remain determined to make that damn apple pie.......
