Tying Up Loose Ends Tuesday

Today has been a day of errands and last minute things to do before the surgery tomorrow.  I picked up my grandson and took him to visit with my mom (his great grandma or "Gigi).   We stayed there for about two hours and then headed home.  After I dropped him off, I stopped off at Target to pick up some new sweatpants and shampoo.

Then, I went to a wonderful little Thrift Store downtown.  They have a policy that you can "borrow" certain medical equipment for as long as you need it.  With the upcoming arthroscopic knee surgery I was told that I would probably need a walker for a couple of days.  I think that would be better than crutches.  I am not that graceful on crutches.   As it happens, they did have some spiffy walkers on hand and were nice enough to lend it to me.  The owner just said bring it back when you don't need it anymore.  I didn't have to sign for it or leave a deposit.  How nice is that??

A few more things to do this afternoon.  I am still trying to pack those Samurai swords Never again will we list something that big.  To much hassle to pack it up.    Regardless, the swords will be packed and shipped today.  I am tired of looking at them.

A couple loads of clothes and some last minute grocery shopping this afternoon and that should be it.  Hope you all are having a great Tuesday!

And don't forget about Carla's Giveaway.  You can be a winner no matter what!

Wow, that is nice of that store to lend such equipment. I can't help but to think how many items have not been returned... but it is nice that they'll trust people in that manner. Hopefully not many items are lost!

And, maybe I missed what happened, but why do you need walkers? Just general mobility?

That's really nice you were able to borrow a walker. They seem much easier to use than crutches. Best of luck with your surgery tomorrow! We'll be thinking of you. -Sydney
