Making it though another day. It’s mid morning right now about 20 till noon. So far the only thing I have done are my “VITALS” I lay down for the ECG, blood pressure and heart rate. Then stand up and again for blood pressure and pulse. My first blood pressure was 94/71 with a heart rate of 82.
Now on to more important things, dinner last night. I had no idea what it was but it was spicy. Ok I do know what was in it just that I am sure it doesn't have a name. It consisted of rice, The broccoli was ok. A little hard for my liking. That square thing on my plate was some kind of bread that I had already eaten the top of. That was the only good thing, oh and the Dixie cup of diet soda I was allowed to have.
I had said I would touch on the people that are here with me. I have already clued you in that most don't speak English.. and that's totally fine since I understand Spanish so if they are talking about me I'll know. Yesterday as I walked in to the common area this really tall older woman came running up to me. She had a blanket wrapped around her and extended her hand and said, "Hi, what's your name? Mine is blah blah" I was somewhat taken aback, she came outta now where so I missed her name and plus I just didn't pay attention. I thought she was just being overly friendly but also thought well maybe because there was a lack of people she could speak with she was happy to see me. NOPE - come to find out she is just crazy!
I thought this would be easy for me to be in here since I am a person who really doesn't need to be around other. I'm an only child so I play very well by myself. LOL. I have no problem speaking or talking to strangers, I used to be a trainer and facilitated classes, so no problem, right?
WRONG!!!!Have you ever been somewhere sitting close to someone... like at the library or in my case at a long table with many computers, and the person next to you keeps talking out loud to no one about what she is reading or looking at on the computer. I know you know the type, they want you to ask about it so bad that they get a little louder and I can see from the corner of my eye that she keeps looking at me to respond. I won't do it! Plus I really don't care.
On a lighter note did everyone watch American Idol last night.. I was apprehensive about the new judges but I think it is going to be a good year.
Stay tuned for dinner! You know I can't wait to see what it is.
