Mr. S last night at dinner.

Got A Plan?
Wednesday. A good dinner last night at Ms. S's here in Oakland. She and her husband are renovating her house so the entire upstairs has been stripped (walls and floors) with doorways added and doorways subtracted, her husband and two of his associates (who do this for a living) well into the project. Are they in the building industry? Has the current meltdown had an impact? Does selling a house here in Oakland provide a challenge? Oh, sure. Life. It's like that. A certain amount of stress, but no reason not to have a few friends over for dinner. (This coming from someone who's retired.)

A bus downtown, a visit to the pharmacy (Yes, they now have me in the system. Did I know one of my main prescriptions isn't covered?), a walk about the City Center, a bowl of Turkey-chili for lunch, a walk back home feeling reasonably coherent. Good to feel reasonably coherent. Oh, and the prescription thing that's not covered is fixable from what the pharmacist said. More paperwork, but then there's always more paperwork here in Oakland.

Cloudy this morning. I awoke and got up around eight-thirty instead of six-thirty, so something is going right. I finished watching a DVD movie last night after returning from dinner, so I got to bed around midnight. Getting to bed between eleven and midnight, getting up between eight and eight-thirty seems reasonable. I generally feel pretty good in the afternoons and evenings, less so until I've had my first cup of coffee over breakfast in the morning. We need to lay down some base retirement habits here, breaking them up now and again to retain sanity, but getting the sleep right seems fundamental to the plan.

You've got a plan?
