Waiting and Waiting

0430 hrs found me awake and anxious. Once I wake up, there is nothing for me to do but get out of bed. My brain kicks into overdrive and going back to sleep is not an option.

I slipped out of the room and headed for the media room where I signed on to Facebook. Next stop, the coffee pot and some brew. Soon the attendant showed up to start putting out all the breakfast food. A bowl of grits and a couple slices of toast and I'm ready for my day.

The husband has to go to the rig this morning to bill the client and tag all the tools that must be shipped back to the shop. The remainder of the day will be ours and we plan on hanging out in Baton Rouge today. I've mentioned Tiger Mike? Well of course I have. I have mentioned and mentioned and mentioned him to the point where I'm sure everyone has had enough of that cat. I still want to find him and get some pictures.
The LSU campus is huge. Fields of cattle, crops and ancillary buildings sprawl over the landscape around the stadium. It's a premier school and the largest in the state of Louisiana and we all know about the football program they maintain.

I'm ready to slip back into the room and check to see if the husband is awake and ready to make his trip to the rig. I'm packed and ready to move out as soon as the word is given. It's been a very relaxing couple of days.

Another job is scheduled within a week that will take him to Kansas. I don't know if I will be making that one with him. It may be too close to treatment time.

Family beckoned. My sister in law was in the hospital so I called her last night to see what was going on. Apparently, as with my brother, she had an irregular heartbeat so she had to have her medicines changed and to do this, they must keep her for a few days for monitoring. It was great talking to her and as always, Gertie is very kind and supportive to my health issues. She made me promise to call her if I needed a pep talk. I promised I would. What a grand lady she is!

I'm off here to either take a short nap or throw all my stuff in the roadster for the trip home or plan a day of site seeing around here.
I'm done for now...and I'm gone!
