It's supposed to be rainy the next week - maybe that will keep the annoyances next door down to a minimum if they are all indoors for the next week that they still have left to be here.
Right around 6pm last evening, when my mom was supposed to be taking her evening pill, I get a notification that she unplugged it again. I waited about 15 or 20 minutes, to see if she would possibly get it plugged back in and medication taken on her own, but no such luck. She doesn't know why she unplugged it, again. But, I'm just thankful this machine is smart enough to tell me this. Because of it I know she has not missed one dose since I installed it last Saturday morning. It even tells me exactly what time she dispensed the meds. Next visit I'm going to have to tape a note next to her plug in that says "leave all plugged in". She's also confused by the "PUSH" note I taped onto the unlabeled button to dispense the medication. When I'm on the phone with her, when she has problems, she says "it says to PUSH". I'm like that's just on there so you know which button...what does the SCREEN say to do". LOL.
DH came to bed last night and said he was doing better. Then he sneezed...and thought his stomach came apart. Oh poor Dh. I just felt his pain when he sneezed.
My half sis in Canada (a US citizen) got a check for the 3rd stimulus, $1400, that was paid during 2021. That means the IRS must have received her tax returns I did for her to get her caught up and the $1800 she is still owed, showing as a refund due on her 2020 tax return, should also be sent to her soon. She was so happy to get that check. She and her boyfriend are moving into their new home soon and of course she has lots of things she wants to get for it.
I'm still feeling wiped out and tired. Hopefully dh is heading in the right direction now and I can get my energy caught back up. I'm really glad lawn mowing season is over and he's not trying to do that while he doesn't feel well.
The fall colors here are pretty right now. While were mostly surrounded by evergreens here in the mountains there are larch spread out in between and there are some leafy trees along the river and also lots of oak and maple trees lining the streets in town.
I was cleaning out the cat litter box last night and then refilling the febreeze bottle with some refill I bought and accidentally spilled some on the blanket in his crate as I didn't get the lid on right. wooo! too smelly. I took out the blanket and put a different one in. I didn't want to take the offending blanket downstairs as I knew dh would totally smell the strong smell. As it was, he still smelled it. I ended up leaving the air purifier on in my office all night and then put the smelly blanket in a bag and tied it up. I'll get it washed today.
I would just like a day where nothing happens. Nothing annoying, nothing healthwise, nothing with my mom. Is that too much to ask? Just one day, please.
