friday fun!

Friday, April 08, 2011

Very hard day at work,, left immediately after work to bank for mom, then to Walgreens for mom, then to visit mom.. labeled her wheelchair, new walker, old walker, brought her more diapers and tissues, visited with her and other folks awhile,, till my internal dinner bell rang,,
actually things took an upswing after work: I received checks for all the money the car insurance company took from mom's account after she no longer had a vehicle.. that $$ should pay for her new gutters on her house,, all of her income tax return $$ was deposited in her account, as was all that $$ I did all that paperwork for and faxed to the investment company Monday..

I got a bill for all of that lab work the rheumatologist ordered for me for February,, to the tune of $700!! I got a big bargain on that,, insurance paid lots, so all I owe the lab is $200!!
On the downturn, I also got a bill for my slam-o-gram that I already paid,, but this bill is four times what I already paid.. my insurance should have covered it,, got another phone call to make..
Some things are looking up.. mom is finished with her PT at her new home, maybe the rent will decrease,, it should..
still have to pay trust attorney and wait to hear what I am supposed to do with all this money in her checking account.. more $$ than I have ever earned in my lifetime!!

It is times like this that I know I HAVE to get away for a few days or keel over from the stress.. no more guilt over the $$ I am spending on myself..

    LINDA, You have done all of this and now you must start looking out better for yourself. Rent your cabin in the upper and enjoy the August weather. Is there a reason it is to be August. It sounds like you need a break really soon. I applaud all the work you have done on your Mom's behalf, you are doing a great job with all you have going right now, HUGS Pat in MAINE emoticonJOB you are doing emoticon emoticonPat

The wedding is very small:I am the only attendant standing with groom's uncle. Church Mass, reception in parish hall afterwards,, we are also going back to their house to take pics in their gazebo..
very laid back,,

I made my hot stone massage appointment for next week.. we will be back from Hawaii,, also made hair appointment,, they asked me if I minded a male masseuse.. I actually prefer one as they have more upper body strength to give a better massage..
all the color has gone from my eye now, just a huge scab and red mark on my knee from the fall.. glad it is gone for the wedding..

wrote a note to Upper Peninsula cabin owner to see if they have the cabin available for me in August,, he will receive it by Saturday,, hope to hear from them soon..

Who would not want Male masseuse LOL, what a question. What is the bit about Hawaii, are they going there for their honeymoon.

I do so hope you can get your cabin, that will give you something nice to think about all summer long. I know your summer is just as hsort as ours but we can dream HUGS, LINDA Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    OH how i love goulash never heard of it till we came to Miane.
It is pretty much like my Mothers old standby MINCEMEAT. just ground (MINCED) Beef. Onions, never tomatoes-we never ate them they did not grow in Enland where we lived.
Thicken the gravy, lots of salt and pepper we ate it with Youkshire puddings (POP-OVERS ) to you . Mostly we ate SPUDS (potatoes) and cabbage to go along with it. Sometimes a turnip and DH and I both still have that. These days I never serve bread at the table and I never do yorkshire pudding with potato. Too much starch.
Just comparing our grub, Pat in Maine.HUGS and TTFN Pat in Maine, emoticon emoticon emoticonTaTa for now!
