Change of Plans....and another meme...

Mark realized late yesterday afternoon that he was out of equipment to put out on patients. Things like over-bed tables, shower chairs, wheel chairs, bedside commodes, etc. Things they get several orders for every day. His company is in the process of gaining another hospice account so he's been having to do that instead of his regular duties. Not to mention they are just slammed as it is with what they've got already. He ended up making many deliveries himself for the past few days, even with both drivers going full steam and was out of town from about 2pm til 8 last night. Since it is supposed to rain today(and it is very dark this morning at 8:14ish) he went into work to order equipment so it will be here for next week's business. Monday he has to go up to Ennis, about 3.5 hours away, to get equipment that a family had been storing for several months after their loved one had died, and Tuesday he has to go to Commerce, about 2.5 hours drive, to meet with someone there about something(????) and Wednesday he and the owner are meeting with the representative of the asset aquisition deal. So, he can't put this off. Its going to rain anyway so we wouldn't be able to do much fence work.***updated*** 8:43, it is raining now, pretty hard!

The kids and I will be probably do housework today. From Wednesday on we had a busy week with going to get the milk, then park day, then hair cuts yesterday. Our dishwasher(less than a year old) was acting funny, not getting the dishes clean, so we're behind in the kitchen bigtime. I figured out that it was set to "light rinse" instead of "normal wash". Doncha love it when that happens?

My quilt needs the last two sides bound, that won't take long though, maybe two hours or less. I really am anxious to get my light fixture painted. Mark could wire it for me tomorrow if I had it ready.

Oh yeah, Ryan's haircut was a HUGE hit with his youth group last night! They all loved it!!! I meant to say, with his pictures yesterday, that he was eating cheese-its in both of the shots I got of him. He really wasn't making a sour, "I hate my haircut" face at all. Amy finally got over her funk. I remember being the same way when I got a haircut, it would be very overwhelming for a day or so then I'd be over it.

Here's the Meme, stolen(borrowed) from Groovy's Ruminations.
