It seemed like I was busy all day yesterday, but at the same time it didn’t seem like I accomplished anything at all. Some days are like that, I guess.

I started the day wading through a bunch of emails. Several of them wanted information that I didn’t know off the top of my head and I had to do some research to find the answers for them. Two seemed pretty involved and I wasn’t able to get very far into their problems. I’m not sure I’ll be much help to either one of them.

Around noon I left to take a friend to a doctor’s appointment, which didn’t take very long at all before we were out and headed back home. I think he liked riding in my new Mustang. I know that every time I drive it, I like it even more.

I wasn’t home for long before we left again, headed to Coastal Integrative Healthcare for chiropractic adjustments for both of us. I have a follow-up appointment this coming week with the neurosurgeon that did my facet injections, hoping they would relieve my back pain. They didn’t, and while the medical marijuana oil knocks the pain level down noticeably, I’m hoping for something more effective and more long-term. So, we’ll see what Plan B is.

With that out of the way, we made a stop at Walgreens to pick up a prescription, then it was back home. A while back I found an antique sword at a flea market, and when we got home Terry and I hung it up on the wall above the stairs that lead from the main part of the house down to my office. Okay, if you want to nitpick, I held tools and screws and things like that and handed them to Terry while she did the work. If I would have attempted something like that on my own, I probably would have impaled myself on the sword.

Then I read through the 4,000 words I wrote in my new Big Lake book the other day, making corrections and polishing things up a bit.

Aside from the delicious dinner Miss Terry prepared and watching a couple of episodes of the new season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime afterward, that was pretty much it for the day. Like I said, busy, but not much accomplished. And probably pretty boring to read about, too. I’ll try to find something more interesting for tomorrow’s blog.
