We got back in town and went directly to our favorite Mexican restaurant, Chalupas. It was quite a contrast to the meals we have eaten the past few days in Asheville, but it was just what we needed. I know I picked up a couple of pounds while we were away. I need to take some of them off
I brought our suitcases inside. I put mine in our bedroom and Kate’s in her office. I opened hers and took out a few things – her shoes and put them in her closet. I also took a pair of slacks and a couple of tops and put them in my closet so that I would know where they are. I’d like to take them to Texas with us.
In less 30 minutes, I noticed that Kate had moved her suitcase into the family room. Typically she puts it in the kitchen or laundry room when she has unpacked her things. I didn’t think much of it but picked up the suitcase to take it back to our storage room. When I lifted it, I couldn’t help noticing that it was heavier than I thought it should be. I opened it up to find that she hadn’t unpacked anything. She had simply moved the suitcase from the bedroom into the living room. This led me to take the suitcase back to her office where I unpacked everything and hung up her clothes. Then I took the suitcase to storage. She hasn’t said anything. Nor have I. I am sure that she wouldn’t remember anything about it, and it serves no purpose to inquire.
She continues to exhibit other misunderstandings or to have imagined things that didn’t happen. At dinner this evening, she commented on how spicy our dish was. I mentioned that to the server when he asked how we liked our food. Kate told him it was her own fault, that she had asked for it that way. Some time after he had gone, she told me she asked for it to be spicy, that he had not even asked. She just volunteered. Actually, she didn’t say word. I did all the ordering, and spiciness never came up.
On the way home, Kate said it was early. That led me to say we might take a look at what is on TV tonight. Then she said, “I think I will work on my new computer.” I said, “That would be nice.” For weeks now she has periodically mentioned something about a new computer. Each time I have told her she doesn’t have a new one but the same one she has had. This time I just accepted what she said.
Then when we got home, she said, “I think I will stay outside for a little while. I’ll change shoes though. I wouldn’t want to get these messed up.” It has been about 40 minutes, and she is still outside. I think she is still wearing the same shoes. I know she hasn’t been inside, but she might have changed to some yard shoes she keeps in the garage.
