I got the dogs prescribed medication picked up later yesterday morning, so I gave them the first dose (2x/day). When I got the previous prescription for the one dog, for 5 days, it was $20, so I figured the vet was doubling it to 10 days (he said he was having them take longer period) and now 2 dogs, so would cost $80. He's having them take for 14 days and it was $40 total, so apparently whether it's 5 pills or 28 pills, one bottle costs $20. Seems strange.
The paving crew worked another half day yesterday (doing prep work) and said they will pave on Friday now. Why not just get the prep done in one day? It's not like they left and went to another job after working 3 hours the first day. They left all their rakes, shovels, and equipment here.
One of the things we bought at Home Depot over the weekend (while we had DD's pickup) was another of the big metal shelving units. DH put it on the back wall of his new shed. He also put a bunch of hook things on the walls to having shovels and rakes, etc. We also gave DD/DSIL our floor/window vented a/c unit we had used at our house in town. We don't need it anymore and they can really use it in their 2 story house to help keep it cool during the hot summer days. DH also gave her a tote bin with a bunch of moving blankets it it. We still have lots of both left and he doesn't need to keep that many and I'm sure they can use for something off and on. Getting more stuff out of the shop and garage, little by little.
On my way in to see my mom yesterday afternoon, I stopped in the nearby Petsmart. I had ordered online, for curbside pick up, so that was handy and quick. The dogs need to be on FortiFlora for 30 days and that seemed to be the quickest way to get some, rather than waiting 8 days for Amazon or probably 4-5 days or more for an online pet store to ship. Hopefully this extended period of medications is going to fix these dogs problem. DH is also tired of trying to pick up soft or runny poop from the yard. He usually goes out every day to scoop poop. I'm sure some days it's nice when they go over on the vacant lot next to us (it's just wild overgrowth grassy and vegetation) and there's no poop to scoop, but that is also probably where they are eating deer poop, so we are trying to keep them in our yard.....HEY FENCE GUY-WHERE ARE YA?!! (he was supposed to come Tuesday....)
Older dog made it all night sleeping on the bed with us, without needing to go outside, so I think he's starting to at least have the diarrhea part go away. Last evening as I was out watering plants I saw a really normal poop in the lawn. I'm sure it was the other dog, but that's a big improvement over what he's been doing, too.
The weather here has turned nice and pleasantly warm. We ate dinner out on the front patio last night. There is a Mc'D's just outside of the city on the way home. I decided to give a try to getting some and seeing how it holds up in a hot/cold insulated bag for the remaining 30 minute drive. The burgers and chicken nuggets were fine. The fries were too cold and soggy. But, better than getting home at 6:30 and having to make dinner.
I need to get back into doing MTurks. I have not done any in over a week, with all the mom move stuff. I did just get a nice $2.30 bonus from one of the surveys I did.
Of course, I checked my mom's pill box when I got there. She had it sitting on her little dining table. She had taken all her morning pills, but had missed Tues evening (cholesterol) pill. Not bad, considering she is still trying to adjust to all the new surrounding and new things to remember. I left these 2 sticky notes. One on her computer screen and one on her door.
Progress, I think :)
