Slice of Life Tuesday

An Ordinary Day

            This was one of those days when not a lot happens, but it feels like I’ve been very busy.
            First, I had to rebandage my husband’s leg (a minor problem, but a great inconvenience, and a little too gross to go into).
            Next I had a lot of to-dos: e-mails to arrange our annual family holiday dinner with nieces and nephews; e-mail to a friend I’ve been out of touch with; e-mail to set up my next women’s meeting. Then Facebook posts on news events (a baseball story, a story about a high school student in South Carolina body-slammed to the floor by a school police officer).
            An appointment at the Apple Store to untangle my iPad, where it took 20 minutes to update the iOS.
            Shopped for dinner on my way home, but before I could start I needed to rebandage my husband’s leg – and when I wanted to take a photo of my husband’s leg to show his doctor, I realized I’d left my iPad in the store (I hope). Yes, it was there, lucky again (I’d lost the iPad, just weeks after getting it, in a park in Hawaii, and found it lying on the grass), and I rushed back home.
            Made honey-Dijon salmon from a Food Network recipe.
            And now settled in watching the first game of the World Series with my Mets against Kansas City. It’s tied 3-3 in the 7th inning right now. Anything could happen.

Update: Alas, after 5 hours, 9 minutes, the Mets lost. They came from behind, then went ahead after being tied. But after being tied again, they lost in the 14th inning, 5-4.
