Out of Breath . . .

Today started early (very early!) with a 7am departure from the rig up to Friendswood for Jan’s doctor visit for this year. It took about 90 minutes, but she got a clean bill of health for this year. So she’s good to go.

Since she had to fast this morning before her tests, we headed down the road to Kelley’s Country Cookin for a really good breakfast.

And coffee, lots of coffee.

Then it was about 5 miles down the road to try once again to replace a client’s computer power supply. Readers will remember last Saturday I went to the client’s house with what turned out to be used, dead power supply in a new box.

So after correcting the situation with EPO, the store that sold it to me, I was back to try again. And this time the new supply worked fine and after a few minutes the client was up and running again.

Our next stop was Brock’s Car Care near our house to talk about getting some work done on our truck tomorrow. We’re going to rent a car this afternoon and then drop the truck so they can get started on it the first thing tomorrow.

Next up was a client in Clear Lake and then one in Pasadena (Hi, Tricia!), and then finally, home.

But our stay only lasted an hour and then it was back on the road, and a stop for dinner at Monterey’s Little Mexico for some good Mexican.

By 5pm we were up in League City to Enterprise Leasing to rent a Toyota Corolla, or at least that’s what I reserved and was paying for. But something I’ve learned over the years is that if you renting a cheap, small car at a small town office, you usually get upgraded because they’re out of small cars.

In this case we ended up with a big, honkin’ Dodge RAM Crew Cab truck. Sweet!

Then I drove the rental up to Brock’s with Jan following in our truck, where we swapped stuff out and left it to be worked on.

Then after a quick stop at Kroger’s and Chase Bank, we ran by Brandi’s to check the mail, Sam’s Club for prescriptions, and finally home.

(Catching my breath) Glad today is over.
