My dogs injection vials arrived (next day!) but now I'm confused on the needle/syringe. I'm pathetic LOL. When they gave me the vials before, at the office, they gave me a bunch of individually wrapped needles/syringes. This time, with the vials she sent, is one needle/syringe, kind of fancier, enclosed in kind of a clear plastic case. So....I use the same one for each of the injections? or do I just need to get more of them on my own? or just buy more needles? I don't even know where to buy them and to make sure I'm getting same size. They say they are 22gx3/4, whatever that means. I feel dumb to call again....geez. But, she knew it was for 5 doses....wonder if I can just buy some at the town pharmacy.
DH is making some progress. A lot of it is just rearranging his stuff, that is in better spots, so more room. But also just more room, too, as he's throwing some stuff out. Now he can get back to the far corner stuff and start working on that. There are like 4 pallets of stuff in that corner, but the very back corner pallet only has like 3 bins on it and he said it's mostly stuff that can be thrown away, so once he does that, that will be another 4 square feet of space open on the floor. I think if he would get the back wall loft built and then everything stored up there that he wants, that will make a huge difference on the floor space.
Apparently what is in those 3 bins left on that very corner pallet is years and years of car magazines! He had saved them since was a teen and for however many more years he subscribed to them. He said like 15 or 20 years ago he wrapped bundles of them in plastic wrap. Then they got stored in boxes and moved into the plastic bins when we moved. He's supposedly ready to actually just throw them all away. I'll believe it when I see it. But, like Meg B. mentioned in my last posts comments with her dd, it has to be their idea/decision. When he said he was just going to throw them away he had this look like he was so unsure and wanted me to confirm. I just said, that's probably best. He said he is going to have to go through them, though, as there are 2 of them that have his best friend in them, that he wants to keep. Very old! I know one issue, his friend was on the front cover, so that will be easy to find. I'm not sure about the other issue he was in.
He was very proud of himself last night to get things moved and arranged better. He said this is the first time he isn't embarrassed about his shop inside. He has the old tbird now parked (with cover) inside the shop at the end where the big tall door is. To the right of that is the corner with the 4 pallets of stuff still needing to be gone through. He said now, when he wants to start going through a bin, he can back the tbird out of the shop and have that empty space next to the bins to pull a bin out, see what he's got, and make decisions what to do with it. Some of the bins have all his nuts and bolts/bolts bins that he used to have on a wall in his old garage. Once he builds the loft area, I think he plans to put the bolt bins attached to the wall under the loft. It must be really conflicting emotions he deals with in relation to his hoard and his need for being so organized and neat. On the one hand he has to keep everything, on the other hand he wants everything to be perfectly organized.
As I was helping dh get the old truck chassis pushed into the garage (I was pushing with the quad) my mom tried to call. I called her back like 10 minutes later and no answer. I tried again 2 more times every 15 min or so. Oh great, I thought. She's probably accidentally turned her ringer off. Finally, about an hour later she called me. "did you call me?" well, ya, because you called me, LOL. She didn't remember. Then she said she'd been down at the singalong activity and that she and her guy friend went down together. I looked on her call log this morning and I think what happened was about 20 minutes before the singalong she was trying to call him and called me by accident, as right after that call to me, she called him. Well, at least she is sort of figuring out how to make calls. She only has like 5 contacts in her new phone that I put in. Me, uncle, dd, her apartment front desk, and her boyfriend. Figured the less contacts in there the easier it would be for her.
I was so tired after work yesterday. I so could have just napped during the evening. I hate that feeling. DH was trying to tell me about his shop and what he still wants to do/get rid of and I just kept yawning. I've been taking a multivitamin for a few months now and then dh's dr wanted him to take a multivitamin as well as vitamin d, so I've started taking the vitamin d last week, too. I've seen zero change in how I feel or my energy level since starting vitamins. Kind of seems like a waste of money. I have tried vitamins over the years and always just end up stopping them and not paying the money. I'm kind of feeling like that again. I've also read many articles that say vitamins really don't do much at all. Have you seen ads for supplements like Balance of Nature or the Relief Factor that is supposed to help with pain? I'm always seeing those commercials and wondering if it would help dh....so my side job boss emailed me that her stupid (her words) hubby used the company credit card for some personal purchases so she was reimbursing the company and one of the charges was to Relief Factor. I asked her if it works? She said probably not. Her dh is a sucker for ads like that and since he spent the money he wouldn't admit it didn't if she asked him LOL. So, that didn't help me much, haha.
