Jul 30, 16, 05:45 PM #19Worked my regular job starting at 6:45, then went to the bar and got my tail kicked for 6 solid hours waiting tables. Had a group of 10 older ladies come in to the patio who had been strolling and shopping downtown come in later in the shift.
Barely got their drinks to them and their food order in before one of the ladies — severe diabetic — starts bottoming out from either heat/humidity, eating too early or exercising too much, or all of the above. Had seen it many times with my grandfather. Got her some fried apples to hopefully help get her sugar back up, but she was in a bad way at that point, not wanting to eat and being fussy. EMS came and took her to the hospital for what I assume must have been an IV of sugar solution to help her balance out. I felt so awful for her and her friends, who for some reason apologized to me.
Best part: EMS brings her back in less than a half hour, and she finishes her cheeseburger. Only complaint was that the ice in her tea had melted. It was great to see her have her wits about her again. She also apologized, but had no reason to. Should've made her a fresh burger. What a trouper!
Now, it's Jim time. I've had a couple beers, and my buddy's had ribs cooking for several hours. Better walk over there …

Errands at Home Depot, Kroger, Wal-Mart, Tractor Supply and Southern States with Mr. Cat. Came home and farmed a bit. Painted a shed while drinking many adult beverages and now fixing dinner while drying some fresh basil just picked from the greenhouse. Laundry night as well. We were going to go fishing but kid #2 took our quad so possibly a brush fire. Weekends on the Compound are the best!

Finished Last Chance U on Netflix this afternoon and was lazy most of the evening. Washed the car and now grabbing a bite at McAlister's.

Jul 31, 16, 09:10 AM #28Have to walk over to my sisters and take two desk that her soon to be ex-husband has screwed into the wall. They will be going out to the dumpster.
Household chores and a cardio workout.
Jul 31, 16, 01:14 PM #29Enjoyed a great date night with Mrs. C1 on Friday. Had planned on a fantastic afternoon yesterday and evening at a graduation party and then wedding with old friends until my back "literally went out!"
That was a first and royally sucked...family went on without me and I re-couped with ice, ibuprofen, and season 2 of "Life Free or Die" with a few coldies. Very cool show btw regarding uses of resources and living off the land with minimal modern conveniences.
Tonight, back to work...t-minus three more shifts on 3rds. Really looking forward to working during the day again! Have a great rest of the weekend folks...
P.S. And the food on the plate was very nice
