The rain off and on the past couple of days had somewhat quieted down the annoyances coming from next door. They aren't playing outside quite as much. 3 more days, LOL. I cannot imagine having 6 people (let alone 4 of them screaming banshees) and 2 dogs stay at my house for almost 3 weeks. Probably just the introvert and hermit in me, but I couldn't do it. I'm worn out just after having anyone stay here a few days.
DH thought maybe they went home yesterday as their big SUV left yesterday morning and didn't return. I told dh I doubt it, they probably just went somewhere for the day and they did. Over the weekend Mr and his son were gone both days as hunting season started. They apparently got a deer late on Sunday and were in their garage getting it all taken care of, as the garage door was open for quite awhile into the evening. At 8:30 I was sitting in our living room, reading, and could hear the kids outside screaming their heads off .
DH has a bunch of used (and some new, I think) big semi truck type tire chains in buckets. He messaged a local friend who has equipment and asked if he'd like them, for free. He said yes, so I imagine he'll be stopping by sometime soon to pick them up. More stuff out of the shop! He really is making some progress.
I overslept a little this morning. Just getting woken up too many times a night by dh lately. He's taking Tylenol/acetaminophen off and on. While most of us know and just call it Tylenol (old habit) he cannot seem to understand it's the same thing. I usually buy generic OTC, so of course the big bottle doesn't say Tylenol. I've told him this for years. And then he wakes me up in the middle of the night to ask if he can take some Tylenol. Again - yes...if it's been 4 hours since you last took it. I don't know what is so hard about this concept. And most of the time he'll walk to the cupboard where it's kept and say "which one is it?". It all really doesn't need to be this difficult.
Neither does a simple request at work, for a billing company name and address! OMG. I've lost track of how many emails this stupid order has become. "Can you invoice this for service work we did". Sure...I just need the billing company name and address. "Ok, let me find out". Then a phone call to me. Ok, I just need the name and address we are billing. Then another email included the person at the mystery company we are billing. Her email organization name doesn't match her signature line company name. And it's also highly possible it could be something totally different I'm supposed to bill. The email asked for her billing address. I replied all "and I need your company billing name, also". Her reply back she didn't reply all, so I didn't get it. I get a ping from our guy asking if I could get this invoice done now that she sent the email. I said I didn't get an email? He forwards it to me. Ok, got the address but no company name. I email him back and then I emailed directly the lady who supplied the address that I am trying to do the invoice for her, but I need the company name we are billing. Still no reply. Are people just that stupid and incompetent? Why yes, yes they are!
Ok, another morning and mom took her meds ok. She didn't take until almost 9am, because she must have went downstairs for breakfast. When I set up the time I asked her what time she's back from breakfast and she said "oh I hardly ever go down, I usually just have cereal or oatmeal in my room" (which was true, she was always having me buy cereal, oatmeal and milk). Ok, so I set it for 8:30. Well, she's been going downstairs to eat now, most days (which is a good thing!) but then of course she is not back up in her room until almost 9. I had set the machine to remind her every 5 minutes for 15 minutes, so until 8:45, but if she doesn't get back until after that, the reminders have stopped. So, the other day I changed it to remind for 30 minutes, so that must have worked.
DH wears through shoes faster than anyone I know LOL For indoor shoes he wears a Skechers Go walk slip on type. He kind of has flat arches or something so maybe that is why. It's been less than a year and I just had to order him another pair. For outside he wears New Balance tennis shoes. Those last a bit longer, but I think it's because he has 2 pairs. A nicer pair when going somewhere and an older pair for doing yardwork, etc.
