Not As Planned

What a day! I don’t subscribe the whole negative on Mondays thing and this hasn’t been a bad day, not really at all. It’s just been…odd.

I’m a planner, always have been. And I mean always. By the time we had recited the date in Kindergarten, I knew who I was walking home with and what I’d buy at the store if I could talk Mom out of 50 cents and she’d let me go. Yeah, 50 cents would buy a candy bar and a bottle of coke. Doesn’t that make me sound old? Hehehe

SIGH, Just a conversation piece!

Well, today was planned. I mean it was planned a week and a half ago. I had a physical therapy appointment at Cleveland Clinic this morning and on October 12, Tigers World Series tickets went on sale. David and I had talked about it and he decided we could afford one really big splurge and we’d try to get tickets when they went on sale. We wanted to go with the single maybe, trying to get tickets for game one or two in Detroit IF the Tigers made it to the World Series, but by the time we got out of the cyber waiting room and into the ticket selection, there weren’t any seats left together. Not just that there were no wheelchair seats with companion seats, but no seats together at all! So we tried the double maybe of game 5, IF the Tigers were in the World Series and IF it made it to Game 5. We got a wheelchair and companion seat just a couple sections farther away from home plate than where we had been for the Division Series game we went to. Remember I said the seats for the Division Series were more than twice the regular price for upper deck outfield seats? Well, multiply by FOUR for World Series seats a couple sections farther back. We’ll be getting a refund, but I really meant it when I said David declared we’d SPOIL us. Hmm… maybe this is a good year to ask about getting a Tuscani bracelet for Christmas?

The Rangers threw a wrench in the plan for tonight, but the day was out to get my plans from the very start! I had just an awful cramping pain in my back just above the hip last night. I slept on the hating pad with lots of Icy Hot on it. When I first got up I thought maybe it had gone away, but taking a step showed me it was still ALIVE and well! I ended up canceling therapy because they wouldn’t let me do anything if I was in pain, so why make the 2-hour trip? Over the course of the day I used ice, rest and the recumbent bike on level 6 two minutes at a time to stretch it. I’m better now after doing that all day, no sharp pain. But I feel like it could come right back if I turn wrong. I’m still tender!

This evening we went to see the jack-o-lanterns in Perrysburg. It was a pretty cool display in town with jack-o-lanterns carved in the traditional style, artsy ones, spooky ones and some cats.

VERY cool! After checking out the pumpkins, we went to Cracker Barrel for meatloaf. We’d tried to order meatloaf for dinner at Cracker Barrel twice last weekend when we were in Tennessee and both times they were out of meatloaf! Tonight we got our meatloaf!


Somehow the big freebie site didn’t pick up my word art freebie, so I’m reposting in the hope that they pick me up this time!
