Organizing & Slightly Scary Medical News for My Dad/Husband
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Yesterday was a day of organizing the van, car, and my house. I'm very pleased with what I got accomplished and even organized and cleaned out my purse. I'm so happy when my spaces are organized and to celebrate I plan to take a trip to Wal-Mart today and see if I can find some more cheap organizing "stuff".
I called my dad and found out that he was once again in the hospital (since Saturday). I didn't fuss at him as I realize he is sick and couldn't call, but fussed that no one told me. Seriously, my family makes me so angry at times at how cold and unfeeling they are towards me.
He was in a lot of pain Saturday and couldn't take it any longer and so said he had no choice but to go to the hospital for help. If you haven't read my blogs you aren't aware that he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer this year and is taking chemo, etc.
My husband also went to the doctor this morning and got some scary news, so we're waiting on test results to see if it's something to worry about or not.
Tomorrow I'm going to take the kids to a teen event a local library and hopefully continue my organizing. I was reading the news online that due to the drought the mid-west was not producing the corn that we normally do and therefore we may see big drops in prices on beef and pork (since the farmers can't afford the high prices for feed) in the near future.
I am trying to eat out of my freezer and get some extra room just in case as I only have a small side-by-side freezer on my fridge. As you know, meat is one of the biggest expenses when you go grocery shopping so I'm always on the lookout for marked down or sale-priced meat for my family.
