Carolyn, this is in response to your comment on my last post:
Relaxing after a hard day’s work of walking on the computer keyboard and drinking my iced tea:
I pulled up the edit screen to type, and walked away from the computer a few minutes. Then I realized that I better get back to the computer, before the kittens posted something I didn’t want posted. They love to walk on the keyboard.
I’ve been vacuuming sawdust and washing things. But I got sidetracked for a little while. Nita called. We talked from 2:19 to 3:45 When she called, she said she’d only keep me a minute. That’s what she always says. I love that lady to death, but I really hate to get on the phone with her. I’m really not much of a phone talker, but I am when she calls. I have to be. I just try to remember she lives by herself and she gets lonely.
I will try to make it around to see everybody a little later.
Beth told me Brandon came to Walmart to follow Rachael home this afternoon.
I just finished writing a letter to the hospital where we took Beth to the emergency room in April. We have to pay 25% of the bill, which comes to a lot of money. They sent a letter threatening to place it on her credit record if the entire balance is not paid in 10 days. I’ve been paying a set amount each month. I basically told them they will get “X” amount of dollars each month and the amount is not negotiable. And that the threat will not get them the money any faster. I told them that if they contest the amount, I will start contesting unnecessary charges on the bill that made me angry, and we’ll just tie this up a while.
I love doing things like this
So far, today has not been boring.
Around 12:30 or so, I was trying to clean up in the kitchen some. I called Rachael to see if she would like to have this heart shaped hanging rack I had hanging on the wall, since I wasn’t going to put it back up. She likes anything heart shaped. She was at Walmart. She still comes here to our Walmart, eventhough it’s 20 minutes away from where they live. There is another Walmart closer, but she likes our store better.
We were talking, and all of a sudden she said, “Whoa….I just saw about 5 Ethans walk by. You usually don’t see that many Ethans all at one time.” That cracked me up, and I told her I would have to post that. So E….now you know there are at least 5 Ethans in this area
She said she was coming over after she got through shopping. But in a few minutes, she called me back and asked me to stay on the phone with her. There was a black guy in Walmart, stalking her. She thought at first she just saw him on several aisles because he had to buy things on the same aisle she was on. But she said she thought he was talking on his cell phone. Then she realized he was actually taking pictures of her, and she heard him say, “That’s so fiiiine.” Then when she saw him on another aisle again, he told her not to worry – he wasn’t really stalking her. He asked her where her husband was, and said he shouldn’t be letting her shop by herself, looking so fine. That’s when she really started to worry.
She said she was trying to get to where Beth was, and tell her what was going on. When she did, they called a manager and told the manager all about it. Seems this guy had been harrassing one of the employees this morning. When they looked for him, they couldn’t find him. He just disappeared.
I told Rachael to make sure one of the men walked with her to the truck when she left (even if it was Manuel ) I guess he’s close enough to a man. Beth was also going to walk with her. Rachael wanted to make sure this guy was not going to follow her over here.
He better not.
