Was able to get out today.  Went out with Beck and her son Gary.  Had lunch at the soup place Becky liked, walked around Target where Becky bought a few x-mas decors on sale and then headed to Best Buy to get Gary's i-pad.  Was so tired when I got home,  fell asleep and did not realized Kim was calling.  She panics if she can't reach me so I texted her asap.  Karine was calling too.  She wanted to join us but I discouraged her because she is very sick.  She sounds horrible - coughing a lot over the phone.  I had a good time; all thanks to Becky and Gary.
