Monday was a pretty good day. Karen came in and fed the Poochie hound, fed me, and then got me dressed and up in my chair. We cruised through Depot Park and down to the end of the boardwalk and back; of course, I cruised down to Cowles Beach to take a couple of pictures… Whenever I go by there, I just have to take pictures even though I probably have thousands of them already. We cruised over to Dudes appointment at the vet; he's averaging an earache every two months, so the vet wants to put him on a prescribed vet food, and when I told CCI, they didn't like it; so they asked me if we could figure out something else… They have just learned that a dog needs to have grain in his diet because it's good for their heart. Dude does not have grain for the food they prescribed, but they said to try it for two months and see if it keeps him from getting ear infections. They just helped me get his weight down to a normal, and I loved the food that I changed him to, but if the prescribed one is better… I guess we'll see. My cousin Rich sent me some pictures of his daughter Lexi; he just found out she's pregnant with twins… She already has one beautiful little girl, and I can't wait to find out what the twins are going to be and if they're going to be identical or not. We headed home to wait for Jesse; I wanted to go to Ross and goodwill to look for a costume for Dude and me for Halloween. I found some decorations, and I found some things that we needed for the costumes. We cruised back home, and Jesse fed Dude, put me to bed, fed me, did a couple loads of laundry, watered everything outside, cleaned up the kitchen, wiped everything down, and then went home. Cindy texted me and said that Adriana and Niko were exposed to the coronavirus and tested positive; their brother Ivan tried positive also. He lives in the same house as Cindy, so she will get tested then stay away for 10 days. This is getting so scary; besides my mom, I have never been this close to somebody who tested positive. I told everybody I needed to speak and took her home test that came out negative, and I'll go down to the Civic Center tomorrow and get another test. Luckily Jesse and Karen continue to come in and help me, or I don't know what I would do. So far, Cindy says they don't have any symptoms, and I just pray that it stays that way. I spent the rest of the evening listening to music, playing games on the computer, and watching TV until I fell asleep.
Thursday was a pretty good day. Karen came in and fed the knucklehead, fed me, and then got me dressed and up in my chair. Dude and I took off for a cruise through Depot Park, down to the beginning of the wharf, over to the beginning of the boardwalk, and back. Jesse was going to come in and take me to the Santa Cruz Civic Center to get a Covid test, but she was running late, so Dude and I just cruise down there; I had never gotten a test before because I had been exposed, and is really scary… You have to wait like 72 hours, and I think it's going to be the most prolonged 72 hours ever. Karen came back and put me to bed because Jesse wasn't going to go in. Karen put me back to bed and then came back later to feed the hungry hound and feed me. It was actually nice to have another day to stay in bed and just listen to music and play candy crush. Karen came back and provided us and then took off for the evening. I edited some pictures, played games on the computer until I fell asleep.
Friday was an excellent day. Karen came in and fed the hungry hound dog, provided me, and then did some personal care and a nice long hot relaxing bath. She got me dressed and up in my chair, and I took Dude out for a nice little cruise; what a beautiful day! We cruised back home; the reason I came back early was to have my mom put my phone on the charger so I could take pictures tonight, but of course, I forgot. Eli and Jesse came by, and we fed Dude before we left for the concert. Tonight was my first series in the Mountain winery concert, we are going to see Tower of Power. They're not really one of my favorites, but I had to choose for shows.
Saturday was a nice relaxing day. I don't bounce back as well as I used to after going to these concerts and not getting home until midnight. Cindy came in and brought me some fresh chorizo, last Tuesday, we were talking about food as usual, and I told her I hadn't had chorizo for a while, and she remembered and brought it in… She is so sweet and thoughtful! She made me a breakfast taco, and it was awesome! There is nothing like fresh chorizo! She fed the hungry hound, fed me, watered the plants outside, washed a load of clothes, cleaned up the kitchen, wiped everything down, and then went home. The rest of the day was pleasant and relaxing; I edited my pictures from the concert yesterday and tried to catch up on my blog… I seem to catch up and then get behind again. I don't know why I don't blog every night like I used to; I think this pandemic had a worse effect on me than I thought because all I seem to want to do is play candy crush. Jesse came in and fed the hungry hound and then took him for a cruise around Santa Cruz. She got back and fixed me something to eat, cleaned up and did some laundry, and then went home. My favorite part of the evening is after my caregivers go home, and I'm in bed with the TV and the computer, I have to have somebody around for 8+ hours a day, so when I have time to myself, I really enjoy it. The rest of the evening, I edited pictures, watched TV, and fell asleep. I didn't even have time to get any photos off the Internet; when I don't take pictures, I try to find images that people sent to me or take pictures online just to have something to post.
