Today was an interesting day - though it did start out being a normal Tuesday (okay, it's Fat Tuesday, so it should be a little different, no matter what). The girls got up and lunches made and Linda and I walked them to school. Shortly after getting home I started making preparations for going out on a bike ride, and Jason was making arrangements to take Mr. Jingles to the vet.
I needed to head over to the DMV, and I was sooooo glad I had an appointment already set. With yesterday being a holiday the number of folks wanting to get something done there doubled, and that meant the line was literally wrapped around the building. I started out by riding out to Mission Bay and then on up Washington Street. This was the first time for going up Washington, and for good reason. It is a very steep hill and goes for close to a mile. The cool part was that I was able to get all the way to the top, without stopping, and the top was the 13th mile of the ride. I got to the DMV and saw all the people there and thought, "this is probably going to take forever." I was wrong. I was able to lock my bike to a fence and was in and out in less than 30 minutes. Moral of the story - if you're going to go to the DMV, make an appointment.
Jason's trip wasn't quite so nice. As it turned out, Mr. Jingles has some issues with his paws and we're having to treat him with medications. I hope it is something like a simple infection or something, so that it can be cleared up rather quickly. For a rat, Mr. Jingles is a pretty cute little guy, and actually pretty friendly. Jason also brought home some other stuff, where he went and did a little shopping while he was out.
This afternoon Stacy had a soccer practice and Jackie went along so she could play at the playground area that was close by. When that was over we came back to the house and we had Taco Tuesday. I think maybe next week we may make a change to the menu but that is still to be seen. Linda and I will actually be on our way to Virginia by then, so we won't be here to cook the meal. We have that covered, but we will still have to plan it out.
The rest of the evening consisted of the girls getting a bath and Jason reading bedtime stories to them. Once everyone was in bed and resting it was time for Linda and I to get a little rest and relaxation in. There was a special on about the Titanic, and we both kind of like to learn more about the actual events of that terrible incident, so we watched it, and that was the day. Thank you, for the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
