TB and Kristin will both be having a little outpatient surgery in a couple of weeks. TB has an enlarged prostate and Kristin has a torn miniscus. For Kristin, there's the possibility the surgeon won't be able to repair the tear because of its location. In that case, he'll just trim the area.
We have a situation going on that I'm really dying to vent about but can't. Our trust has been totally violated ... again. There is someone who has no conscience and continues to take advantage of loved ones who are gullible and trying to help or just loyal or what have you. There is someone who just doesn't care what kind of bind these gullible loved ones are placed into (financial and otherwise). There is someone who does bad things and expects no consequences, flouting whatever guidelines are in place. I feel bad for the gullible ones--they just don't "get it". This person will just keep going along causing more hurt and not feeling remorse about it. That's about as far as I can go with my ranting.
I haven't done a GiST in a long time either so maybe I can start the Sunday routine with that.
1. The mortgage company agreed to let us pay the monthly payment we'd send if we were in the Making Homes Affordable program.
2. We're cooperating together to try and cut our electric bill and our food expenses. The air conditioner is still off even though it's getting uncomfortably hot in the house. We'll probably have to turn it on tomorrow.
3. Heidi stepped up to bail Kristin out of a real jam. Hopefully this will be a learning experience that won't be repeated because the bail out happens just once! I'm so impressed with the level of compassion here.
4. It's good to get validation from others that my concerns about something that happened yesterday are legitimate.
5. We have quick'n'easy meats in the freezer that don't require heating up the kitchen. That's so important on days like this one!
