Monday I had my Friday massage because my massage therapist was not going to be here on Friday. It still felt really great and it felt good to sleep in a little even though I stayed in bed for a couple of days. The dentist called me and of course my dentist was on vacation for a week so they had me come in and take x-rays and sent me to another dentist around the corner. I needed to have a root canal done according to the x-rays and although this dentist could do a root canal he could not do the crown so my choice was to have a root canal and and a really big hole in my mouth for a week or have a really small hole in my mouth I guess as long as it’s not hurting I will wait until my doctor comes back from vacation.
On Tuesday Robby and I both went to the beauty parlor. Robby gets a bath on the first Tuesday of every month but I think I might start having my caregivers give him a bath, he’s already itchy. I went to see Claudia to get a manicure/pedicure. I came back in the house keepers were still here so I hung out on the back porch for a while, I love that place. I took Robby for cruise.
Wednesday I ended up staying in bed again, I’m having pressure sore issues and it looks like I’ll have to be careful for a while. Every time I lose weight I feel really great but I get a lot of skin breakdowns, I don’t know which is worse, to be overweight were to have skin issues. Both feels really bad.
Thursday I got up really late. I have been looking forward to this day since July, when I got the tickets to see the Doobie Brothers. My brother and I went to see than at the Saratoga Mountain winery a couple of years ago and swore we would go back. Unfortunately my brother couldn’t make it but I knew Tom and Kelly would be here and they would enjoy it. There was a burger place up on mission street that I have been wanting to try so we went there first to get something to eat. Kelly and I split a veggie burger and sweet potato fries. The burger was made with black beans and was very moist and delicious, I had never had a veggie burger before. A grilled cheese sandwich hamburger, instead of buns the hamburger patty was put between two grilled cheese sandwiches... it looked really good. After we found gas for the van we headed out to the Mountain winery, I forgot how narrow and winding the road was to get to the winery but the concert was definitely worth it. The view was amazing and the Doobie Brothers put on one of the best shows I have seen for a very long time. We all enjoyed the concert very much. I can’t wait to go again, they have such a great lineup. I haven’t been there for about four years and it looks like we did pretty much the whole thing, except for the stage area. It was so beautiful, all done in rock. We had our own little balcony and every seat in the place was a great seat. Next time we go we will have to try dinner there before, I peeked at some of the dishes on our way through and they looked amazing. I’ve gone to a couple of concerts there where we had dinner before and everybody was always satisfied. What a great evening, I’m so glad I got to share it with Tom and Kelly. I got to bed at 1 AM but was so excited I didn’t get sleepy until about 4 AM and then realized that Robby’s automatic food dish was going to empty his food in two hours so I made myself stay awake. Sure enough at 6 AM and emptied food into his dish but he would not listen to me and ate without me giving him the command, not good. I guess I don’t use it for the mornings anymore. After that I was so angry that he didn’t listen to me that I could not go to sleep at all, needless to say I was very tired next-day. He was just hungry I know.
Friday I got up late again so I could go eat dinner with Tom and Teresa after I took Robby for a cruise. Teresa couldn’t make it so Tom and I went to the ideal restaurant by the wharf and had a really great meal, we both had pasta with artichokes and tomatoes, I had prawns with my and it was AWESOME. We went down to the beach to watch the gin blossoms perform and even though we got there at 6 PM we had a really good view, I couldn’t believe the place was not packed. I heard later that highway 17 was backed up all the way into San Jose, luckily there is a second show at 8:30 PM... I bet that show was packed.
Saturday I just decided to take a nice long hot bath and go back to bed, I was exhausted. I was supposed to go with a group of people to Los Banos, the wool growers restaurant, but it was just couldn’t be too long of a day so I decided I better just relax and stay home. We were expecting family from out of town so it was nice to have somebody here. It was a really nice relaxing day. My mom’s cousin and her friend came to visit from Montana. It’s been a couple of years since I have seen her. I think they’re going to stay for about a week so we will get to know each other again.
Sunday was a great day. The weather was just perfect and Robby and I got to go for a really long cruise, we have gone cruising but not one this long in a while. After we came home and rested we practiced some of our commands, I wanted to do it when there was other people around because he really gets distracted and wants everybody to pay attention to him. I got his recertification card today and it’s only for a year do we really need to work on ignoring people. I also borrowed a skateboard from my cousin’s son across the street to keep around Robby’s bed and his food to get him used to it, he tries to jump out of the way of skateboards. I went to bed and watched Rando with my mom, her cousin and her cousin’s friend. It was my second time seeing it, I thought it was so cute.
