I love having a productive morning. Today Maggie and I put the peat on the new trees (and a bit on the old ones as well), watered them and watered the front grass. While we were finishing up, the neighbor came over and offered to trim the dead off the trees for me - thanks, Mr. John!
I was just reminded to call and make arrangements for all my medical bills because we received a collection call here for someone else. I amused myself by making up almost-correct information for the collector. And I used to be a collector, so I should know how much his job sucks anyway. Sorry, dude.
Tomorrow Maggie and I will head to the Secretary of State office to renew the tabs on mine and hubby's cars. In Michigan, you have to do this by your birthday each year. Since hubby's and my birthday are a day apart next month, we get the double whammy each year.
I was going to plant the little flower that Maggie got at fairie tea for mothers' day, but all the soil near the house is covered with plastic and rocks. I think our next plan of attack may be to get a flower box or planter to keep outside. I would try it inside, but every time I've brought the little cup inside, ants have followed...
My work hours are on track for the week! I need to get another five hours in total today, then anything tomorrow will be extra (which I do need as well). Tomorrow night I'll be able to go do my chocolate show guilt-free, and then Saturday I can enjoy the whole day of the women's retreat! And there's only approximately two weeks left on the project. I certainly appreciate the income, but it will be nice to have a bit of free time back.
So much for the hospital's call back system. I was offered the option to stay on the line for seven minutes, or press some buttons and they'd call me back in the same amount of time. This was ten minutes ago. Guess their system doesn't work. I wish I was surprised. Edited to add: They did call back! It just took twice as long as they said...
