CHAOS

Hmm, where to start. Well, Betsy and her boss had a row Thursday almost 3 weeks ago, and she gave her two weeks notice that Friday. Betsy worked her last on Friday the 19th . This of course is not a good time financial wise but Betsy was having more and more problems. Due to financial constraints we had no phone service for the last two weeks, and yesterday got it back- only to have cable shut us down! Troy has been living back at home but visiting more and came with us to visit Betsy's parents for Mothers Day. We had a fender bender on the way home Sunday- at 60 mph! A young woman changing lanes plowed into us. There was minor damage to both cars and no injuries, which is pretty amazing. We got the estimate on "Alice" this AM, they will allow $530 and change.
Work has been chaotic: two weeks ago Jonnie was on vacation and Michael was ill. I was doing two three or four things at once. Wednesday the 10th I had my INR done, only 1.6, most likely due to the new diabetic meds (back on Glucophage). Then we had a lunch with Risperdal reps. Jeeze- Louise, Risperdal is a pain in my butt. Friday was nurses' day, and we had a ceremony. Sunday we went to Hamilton and I was exhausted from the drive down on Saturday the 13th and back Sunday the 14th -we got a late start back and the accident made us later. We got home after dropping Troy off at about 11:30 PM.
Monday if Janet knocked on my door once about the Consta she must have about 6 times. The entire last week was crazy, with Linda being off d/t her car accident. So again I was two people, and sometimes, like Friday morning three.

Thursday night the 18th we went to the Memphis Drive-In to see a special drive-in movie showing of "Targets" , the last movie starring Boris Karloff and the first directed by Peter Bogdanovich. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063671/ Good little thriller about a young man who becomes a sniper and starts shooting people, ending up shooting people in a drive-in. There were also old movie trailers, a Crazy Kat cartoon, and a Three Stooges short. Lots of fun! It had started out drizzling rain, but that ended a few minutes after the movie started.
On Saturday 20 May we went to the Hessler Street Fair and spent a few hours there, then that evening went again to the Mayfield Road Drive in to see "Over The Hedge" and "Mission Impossible III". "Over The Hedge" was good, and very funny at times. "MI-III" predictable.
