Yes, I am still alive
I don't usually go very long between posts, but to be honest there hasn't been much going on this week that I felt was worthy of mention. Not even posting a random video like I often do =P
Grandma was put on a slightly weaker pain medication, because the narcotic they had given her before was very likely contributing to her nausea.
We finally filled her perscription for an arm-rest that we could attach to her walker. This way she doesnt have to lean over so far to rest the elbow of her hurt arm.
Of course, since it's the start of a new month, I had to order some new CDs =P Made a large order of 7, then an order of 2 a couple of days after. I've still got a decent amount of money on my credit card, so as long as I can stay satisfied with these 9 CDs for this month, I will have succeeded at budgeting myself XD
It helped this time around that four of the CDs were on sale - $5, $6, $7, and $8. This helped keep the cost on a large order down considerably.
Quite a bit of stuff happened locally today:
- A lady from church passed away early this morning. She'd been fighting a couple different cancers for awhile, and from the way my Dad had talked about her condition recently, I wasn't too surprised that she died. I wasn't particularly close to her, but it's still sad.
- Two elementary schools in Orange County were under lockdown due to a nearby hostage situation. Eventually the suspect surrendered, and it turned out he was the guy everyone's been after for attacking and severely injuring a female deputy.
- My Dad said he heard on the radio that the middle school he works at was under lockdown too because of a bank robbery; he wasn't there at the time because of a dentist appointment. The odd thing is, there was nothing at all about it on the local news, nothing about it on the regional school system website, and he couldn't get through to the school by phone either. So I guess we'll find out tomorrow if it really happened, or the people on the radio goofed up.
This Tuesday was the anniversary of my Grandma and Grandpa's wedding. Grandpa has been gone for the last almost-12 years, and I talked to Dad about getting a cake and just having us all go over and spend some time with Grandma. We'll do that on Saturday.
Raina: OK, I'll be your kitty when I'm reincarnated ^^
Nikorasu: Nope, I was never much of a Buffy fan. My ex-girlfriend was the Buffy fan, I was the Angel fan =P
Schultzie: I agree, Bab 5 needs more love.
Red: I'm also an SG1 and Farscape fan ^^ I plan on rewatching a bunch of my scifi shows I havent seen in awhile.
CosmicSailor: If you ever get the chance, get caught up on Babaylon 5. I became a fan when 5th Season started, so I was watching new ones while watching all the reruns at the same time =P
Ink.Black.Sky: Excellent, now we've broaded the podcast's audience by one ^^
Miss Anonymous: Yes, Joss Whedon created Buffy, Angel, and Firefly =)
