Saturday Review

Saturday is over. I'm tired. I know Roger is tired. It was a fun, but long day. I spent 3 hours and 17 minutes at a Virginia DMV to get a disabled parking placard for Roger. I stood in line for an hour and a half to get in the door. I got a number then sat in a chair for an hour and 40 minutes. My number was finally called and it took 7 minutes for the transaction and I walked out of the DMV. I was in shock for a while. I had to pray for patience a few times. Numbers ranged from A### to F### and there was no rhyme or reason to how they called numbers. I pulled A021. I was scared to leave for fear of missing my number. I sat for 45 minutes before I finally heard an A### number called and it was A013. Then they'd call a couple more and no more A's would be called for a while. Since I didn't think it would take that long, I made the mistake of not eating before I went and not bringing anything to do with me. So when it was all over I was starving and kicking myself for not eating or bringing something with me to eat and read. I could have finished book six of the seven book series I'm reading.

I finally made it to the hospital about 3:30 p.m, I think. I can't remember what time it was. Roger had just finished with PT & OT for the day and he was pooped. He was laying down when I got there and soon fell asleep. Before I knew it, it was 5:00 p.m. We got ready for game night, you know, using the bathroom, washing his face, putting on long pants, etc. All those things take longer now. Everyone starting showing up for game night. We had a great time. Before we knew it, it was 9:00 p.m. and we had to play one last tie breaker game between the girls vs the guys. The girls won, of course! Roger had to go up for vitals and meds during the last round. Then we all parted ways. Roger really enjoyed game night and would like to do it again next Saturday. Watch the blog for more details. I have also posted all the pictures from tonight on Flickr (link to the right).

Good night all. I'm off to bed, exhausted.
