Lots of Little Things

June 7th, 2010 at 07:05 pm

Two bags, by the door, filled with things to deliver to the food pantry tomorrow at 6:15pm.

My Sis was able to get my 4 inserts. I want some of those dancing smiling faces. Yea!

I won't get my usual inserts from June 6, from my Brother until he returns to work this weekend. He asked someone else to get them for him. So, it will be like Christmas wondering what and how many. Could be 5 or could be 30. Who knows?

Packed up another box of clipped coupons to send to the Marine base in Japan. It takes awhile since it is about 9"x13" and about 5" deep. A major recycling job done!

Sis and I took Mom to the Pulmonary Specialist. She had a breathing episode while in the office. Her O2 saturation went down to 72. The nurse came out hooked her to the O2 condensor and upped her O2 to 3.5 liters. This brought her O2 sats up to 86-89. For nonmedical people, an adult with no problems ranges from 96-100. We go back in 3 weeks for a work up. He will be on vacation in the meantime, so we do 2 tests echocardiogram and chest x-ray. If she has another major incident he recommended she go to the ER. When you feel like she does and you can't get to the Dr by yourself, I can see why you would just go to the ER. They do all the tests in one day while you are monitored and wheeled around. More expensive to the tax payer/insurer but less stressful. I don't know how other seniors do it. My Mom has me, my sis, my bro, my niece and dad/her husband. I think we have talked her into purchasing the new wheelchair (her old one broke). They have the money, $800, but like alot of seniors are afraid to spend it. She wants to leave us kids some money. We tell them both to get what they need and do what they want. We are grown adults, independent and able to support ourselves. I hope I don't sound ungrateful, but I want and believe they deserve to be comfortable in their old age not worrying about leaving us money. My bros and sis feel the same. I suppose I am rambling, so I will end this thought.

Seven more days with our students. And, 4 of those days are 2hr early dismissals. I will work one day after the students leave for summer break and then have permission to take 2 sick days. We have to make up days due to the snow. But, they don't really want us in the building because of scheduled maintenance, hence allowing sick days. Normally our contract prohibits taking any time off the last week.

Sizzlin' Sixteen by Janet Evanovich comes out soon and I am 39th on the library list for my county. I beat out my local librarian, lol. She is 40something. With 10+ copies, I should get it pretty quick. Plus they also do 1 week nonrenewable nonreservable express book checkouts, so I might get lucky or someone else on the list will and I will get to read it quicker. Fingers crossed and double crossed.

    I love the Janet Evanovich books - I didn't know she had another one coming out soon. I'll have to get down to my library too.

    The library waiting list is a sign of a dedicated frugalite, I think. It's like hitting the jackpot when you get a bestseller quickly from the library!

    Wow - forgot to put myself in line for that. So I just did - 206, but the library system is getting about 15 copies, I think. Either way, I will get the book sometime this summer Smile
