BOY it is HOT here but we are blessed with central AIR so i should not be complaining...HUSH!!...I will!! Guess summer is here and this is what we should be expecting.
Yesterday took Mother to the orthopedist for her last injection in her knee. She hated that it was her last one because now she does not get to see her handsome doctor...He is a good looker. Both of the doctors that she has gone too here are great looking. She wonders if it is in the water..Well who knows.
Afterwards we met Becky and she handed us the kids. We kept them for a couple of hours while she got her hair done. We stopped at AC MOORE (our favorite store). Dad sat out in the mall and waited for us. Mother, Maddie, Garrett and I took off for the store. I looked back and saw Maddie going back to sit with Grandpa. She told Mother that she did not want him to be alone. She has the best heart!! Very kind little girl!! Makes me real proud of her.
Came home and just sat and thankful for the air again. Mommy came and got the kids. Before you know it time to get back in the car and take off for the mall to work. Dad immediately fell asleep like usual. Garrett was trying to wake him up but once Dad goes to sleep nothing bothers him...Maybe a fly or two!! Smile!!
Have I told you about my dumpster diving fun? When I get off work I take our trash out to the big dumpster. One day a couple of weeks ago I saw people from a certain store here taking out their trash..Well it was not exactly trash so I brought it home. Wonderful things called a Seat Case. They were throwing these away. They cost about $95.00 a piece. I grabbed two of them and then later wished that I had taken more of them..From then on I have been "examining" the trash when I leave. I found a large (and I mean large) bag with what looked to be clothes in it this week. I drug it to the car and had a time getting it in the trunk. When I got home and lugged it up our steps I found that it was FULL of baby clothes. Still had tags on them and in great condition!! Mother and I went through them all and folded them. There was everything from a crib pad to cute blankets, hats, bibs, little socks and a couple of toys. I divided them out and took some to Goodwill and then am sending the rest to a young friend that is pregnant.
Why would they just throw these things away when there are so many people who need them. Also there is a Goodwill just a little ways from the dumpster. I would take it there. Crazy world.
At first I could not think what i was going to do with these then I remembered a good friend of mine back in Illinois. Her daughter is pregnant. I got on the computer and wrote to her. She said that they were having a lot of money problems and that she had been praying for God to send something to help them out. Well...through dumpster diving i am sending her some things for her coming baby. She was very happy!! God works in mysterious ways...even through "Dumpster Diving". I LOVE being able to know that I have helped someone else.
So after work..You will find me walking past the dumpsters and having a look see..Maybe I can help someone else...
Thought for the day: "Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' ya none."
