Can't believe it's Thursday already and I haven't blogged since Sunday. My only excuse is that it's hot here, will be 97º here today and I fried my brain just cleaning the kitchen. Walked early and got a load of laundry done because we had notice that the water company was turning off water between 10 and 3 today. Mac had noticed that there was water sitting on the empty lot next to us and we haven't had enough rain to even form a puddle. He checked where our meter was and the leak wasn't from there so he called the water company. They sent someone out the next day and they looked at it and put a couple of orange cones around the puddle. It's been a couple of weeks and they're finally back to fix the leak, so we have no water today. Mac set up some buckets to flush toilets with and we always have bottled water so we'll be ok, but it's an inconvenience.
Earlier this week I had a fight with Express Scripts, they provide our medications by mail. I was down to 8 blood pressure pills and I wanted them to send more, but they said I had a 90 day prescription at my local pharmacy so I had to get it there. Called the local pharmacy and they said they couldn't fill it because Express Scripts had filled it the week before. I asked how much to just pay for it myself and the pharmacist said $31.95 fro 30 days, I said ok, fill it. He said he'd contact Tricare and get permission to fill the prescription for 30 days. I called Express Scripts back and they admitted they hadn't filled it, not had the pharmacy, but the pharmacy could give me a 30 day supply and they'd cover the cost. So on our way home from shopping we stopped at our pharmacy, the pharmacist called Tricare, got permission and filled it on the spot. The local pharmacy was great, Express Scripts not so much.
I ordered a new piano book Pucini's Operas for the piano and I'm loving it, Le Boheme is just so beautiful. I've been playing it ever since it came in and humming the arias when I'm housecleaning.
Fought with my Mp3 player all morning yesterday because I never remember how to load music on it. GRRR!
Last night we watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Liked it, but didn't love it. A bit too long and too many side stories. Liked the secondary characters better than the leads. Dan Fogler as Jacob the baker and Katherine Waterson as Tina were much more interesting than Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Morton. The beasts of course were wonderful.
Read another Anne Tyler book, The Beginner's Goodbye. It was short, but quite wonderful.
Aaron's wife Dorothy has died, hit by a tree that falls through their house, but she comes back.
Must read some more of hers.
Have to start thinking about Five on Friday.
