Today started off with an adrenaline rush of sorts. I was driving around the square to get back home instead of my usual route due to road construction. Apparently, it is legal to turn left on red in one way zones in this town, but I never do it because it seems pretty stupid to me. The folks coming from the other direction evidently think that it is fine to do, forgetting all about the "if the way is clear" bit. I waited for my green light before proceeding with the left turn that I needed to make, only to look over to see an SUV thinking that we were supposed to share the same exact spot at the same time, after it ran their red light. Good grief! Thankfully we didn't hit.
We have Laynie home again for the weekend. She goes to the doctor in the morning to find out what her epizooties is and a follow-up on her eye infection. This is with the primary care doctor. He is supposed to give a referral to the ophthalmologist for a better exam, which hopefully will be tomorrow, too, since we have to have her back on campus Sunday evening and we can't keep making trips into the city like we've been doing for a multitude of reasons.
