Yesterday I went and visited with my mom a couple of hours. She was doing well, and I'll write about it over at my new blog https://rememberingformom.blogspot.com/
FedEx delivers on Saturday and Sundays here. They are a contracted delivery service with small FedEx vans. I'm signed up with FedEx to get email notifications on deliveries. Saturday morning I got part of my Walmart online order. Dh has told the driver several times it's ok to leave the package at our gate plus I have those instructions on our account. Usually they do, but Saturday he brought it to the door. Then Sunday morning I didn't look at my emails until 10am and saw that they had dropped off the rest of my order at 9am. Nothing at the door, so I walked out to the gate and found nothing. I asked dh if by chance he had already gotten it and set it in the shop or something. No. He went out and looked around the gate, but no package. I looked online at the proof of delivery and it says "left at front gate entrance". Stolen packages are not something we have to deal with out here, but I don't know what else could have happened to it. It was some dishwasher tabs and shampoo. I'm hoping that somehow it just got marked as delivered but they still have in in their van and it will get delivered today.
When I decided on Saturday to go see mom on Sunday afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised to see Walmart finally has expanded their pickup time slots again and had available time for 3pm, so I placed an order. We didn't need bunch of stuff, so mostly it was a "stock up" order. My slot was 2-3pm and I pulled in at exactly 3pm and checked in with the app. There was one other car who had just backed in next to my spot. A girl came out with my order and said my name. I'm like yep, that's me. Then she said Oh, this is the wrong order, I have to take it back inside. Oh ok. A few minutes later a guy comes out with an order about my size and says my name and I'm like yep. He starts to take out chocolate milk an OJ and I say "oh, that's not my stuff either!". The guy next to me, who's drivers side was next to me said "that's my order". So, the guy got him loaded and I sat and waited for this girl or someone to come back. At 3:10 I get a text that my order was picked up. I figured it was because she had done that on her little handheld before she realized it wasn't my order. At 3:20 the guy who unloaded next to me starts to go back into the building and I say "excuse me...can you see what happened to my order??". He tries to enter my name in his machine and says nothing is coming up. I said the girl and then you both tried to bring out an order for my name on your machines, so it was there before. As he's saying he'll go back inside to check another guy comes out with my order. Whew! I love the convenience, but boy, either getting a time slot or having other issues with the orders seems to be pretty hit and miss lately.
I got home at 4:10. I had taken some steaks out of the freezer earlier to have for dinner. We have several steaks in the freezer and dh hasn't hardly eaten any meat since is pancreatitis/gall bladder removal, but these are small, thin ribeyes, so not huge steaks. They need to get eaten as they've now been in the freezer awhile. So, we gave it a try and will see how his digestive system does with it. If ok, I'll get those steaks used up over the next couple of months and we'll have steak for dinner once in awhile (though not weekly like we used to always do).
Mostly the rest of the evening I was tired and just relaxed. I didn't sleep well Saturday night and then spent the morning doing some housework before I went to see my mom. I woke up around 5am this morning and wasn't sure what day it was...Monday, Tuesday? Then I remember yesterday was Sunday. Oh, it's Monday, haha. Time to get working on that project for work.
