Long, long day. We got the living room and half of a bedroom cleaned out. Stupid jerks who broke in to Mom's house just trashed it, threw things down on the floor, tore the door off the pump house. What is the sense in that?

I hope I NEVER get to the point of saving every receipt, every magazine bill or every magazine I get. One of my goals has been to simplify and de-clutter. I can see now I haven't pursued it nearly far enough! I'm afraid too much of Mom has rubbed off on me. I need to be more ruthless in getting rid of things.

So next weekend we're going to be doing the same thing. There is furniture that needs to gotten out of there. I'm afraid the next thing the vandals will think of is to torch the place.


Going down to the farm today to try to get some stuff out of Mom's house. My brother said someone broke into it again and really trashed it. Stupid, senseless people!

Spent the morning doing bills. What a waste of time!! I'd rather have been making beads or being outside. The Baltimore orioles are sucking up the grape jelly off the orange I put out, and they are so bright!

But I've got two more doctor bills paid completely off. Next month another one will be done with. Yippee!!!

Why do we need health care reform in this country?

Last month Lukas' seizure medication's price was $377.73, of which the insurance paid $302.18, and we paid $75.55. This month's price is $527.99, of which the insurance paid $422.39 and we paid $105.60. The drug company raised the price over $150!!!!
