Almost forgot. Nothing much today although Jenni called and hit me up for $500 because Buddy had to go to the vet. As I recall, he ate a package of Oreos, package and all. He had to get medicine to help him pass the packaging and it was over $500, I think. She still hasn't done anything about the truck and a new car. Buddy's vet bill was taken care of by the money I gave her to get rid of the truck and get a différent car. Damn. I'm fed up. I don't feel like I'm worth anything without money. 
We're all still a little giddy over having Trump out of the White House. Apparently Melania Trump is glad to be rid of having to paly dress-up as first Lady. She left the White House in sa black designer suit and landed in Florida in a $3700 orange caftan. She didn't stick around for photo ops with Trump, walking off and leaving him waving to his supposed admirers - without masks, either of them.

We have a new President and Vice-President! President Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were both sworn in shortly before noon today! A beautiful ceremony, it had songs by Lady Gaga (the National Anthem). Jennifer Lopez (America the Beautiful and This Land) and Garth Brooks (Amazing Grace). It was wonderful coverage by CBSN, until the end- there was a commentator who cut to a poet laureate who "helped" the new one. I cut to other coverage so that I could hear Garth Brooks sing. The commentators talked entirely too much. They should've just let the inauguration speak for itself, which they did, for the most part... Vice President Pence was there and he seemed very nice. Trump did not show up - President, Bush, Clinton, and Obama were all there and President Carter called Biden to wish him well, which Biden mentioned when he mentioned that previous presidents were there, except Carter who could not  (not would not or should not) be there. Trump was not there.

Blood Pressure: 133/87  Pulse 59  over sleeve, after lunch


Elysha called this afternoon - they got there with no problem, although she said they left later than they intended because she got sick, thinks it was just lack of sleep and stress. She said Cheech, the little cat, was fairly quiet and didn't poop all over the place, although she thinks he did wet himself.  She said Bobo sat up by her and slept almost the whole way. They have to get the tanks set up for the reptiles and get ready for the movers, who should come soon. They're sleeping on just a mattress and the floor is cement, so she said it was cold. But they do have heat, as it comes with the apartment - they got the electricity in their names, so the hookups for the lizards and things that need heat will be okay.
Steve was at the grocery when she called. We were seriously out of stuff to eat. I was even out of apples.
