Mobility?

Bills paid, a few errands run, and I'm ready for a nap.  Now I'm done working on the computer, I'll be hitting the recliner to watch something and crochet.  I still am working on the wedding gift.

It's been a rough week for me.  My scooter finally gave up the ghost and isn't working.  I've been working on getting a replacement but have had to shift from not being in a hurry to needing it now.  I tried walking for an appointment on Thursday, ended up walking too far.  I've had a lot of pain since then.

Friday I spent the day making phone calls, and have to go make a few more in order to get all the quotes I need.  Since the new scooter will not fold, I'll have to have a hitch added to my car and use a cargo carrier with a ramp.  I went round and round with the Kia dealership to see what they recommended.  At one point I felt like the guy was telling me I would need a new car because I was expecting too much for my car.  I really hate car guys.

For now, I have a wheel chair and the promise of assistance from my sister to get in and out of work.  I will at least be able to go to work and get things done.  I have no idea how long it will take to work through all the bureaucracy in order to get assistance with paying for the scooter, hitch, and carrier.  In the end, I will hopefully have very little out of pocket which is the point.

Last night I called my sister to check in and let her know I had sent her something she wanted (via email).  I found out my mother and uncle were in a car accident on Thursday.  Fortunately, they weren't hurt but the same can't be said for everyone in the accident - one woman was killed.  They were crossing a road with water and their car was swept away.  The car ended up partially submerged and the woman drowned.  I'm grateful they were okay but at the same time this is awful.

I'm hoping for a calmer day tomorrow.  I have to finish the wedding gift, but at the same time I have a story in my head I want to get out.

Crafting Escape

It was a good weekend.  Friday I left work to go to the doctor with Vicki.  We were forceful about her needing a different antibiotic.  She ...
