I don't mind getting older...doesn't mean I'm happy with everything I am tolerating to get there. But then I have had severe arthritis in my knees and shoulders since I was 29...I'm used to things falling apart.

Got an oil change coupon for a dealer that is actually closer to my house, figured it was a good time to check them out. I've avoided this auto mall for about a decade because of very bad service. This is a different brand, and different service manager, so I have high hopes!

Getting ready to head out into the blast furnace to do our weekly marketing. Hotter 'n' blazes here and, today, it's incredibly windy. Won't that help the dryness?!!!

Before I leave, though, I must water all our vegetable planters. They are beginning to bear and water is critical at this point. No official garden this year because of the drought, so I must protect what we do have.

Up early, sitting with my coffee and hoping my oldest feels better today. Poor girl has a nasty virus and felt like crap all day yesterday. Its too early for me to go down and check on her but I surely want to! Trying to figure out how to disinfect the couch.

Aww, Alix, give Bugs a hug for me. I hope she is better too. As for your couch, Bissel (I think) makes a disinfecting cleaning solution. We had to use it when one of the dogs got sick on our mattress and it worked like a charm.

Lysol spray. It is what they use in hospitals and hotels.

Found out getting supplies is much cheaper if I just get them and pay full price at my facility than if I get them from another supplier and medicare pays for part. By buying it myself, I'm saving about $19 a day. Getting reimbursement back from medicare will net me about 70 cents a day, $9.80 in two weeks. Not worth the time and postage dealing with medicare. The supplier has about a 105% markup.
