Colorado flu survivor tells cautionary tale: 'You can go downhill within hours' https://www.coloradoan.com/story/money/2018/09/29/why-you-should-get-flu-shot-colorado/1425409002/ via @coloradoan
Given the events of the weekend, I thought it would be good to have A Talk with the folks about planning for if Mom winds up in care. Neither of them wanted to discuss it, then I aspirated a bite of food and Dad said (half-joking?) that maybe I should stop talking.
...so that could have gone better...
money woes, dogs
Bilateral cataract surgery for McDuff is ~$4000. One eye is only slightly less. [sigh] We don't really have the money for it but Dad and I want to go for it anyway. The cataracts are causing inflammation in his eyes and taking care of them may help get his diabetes under control.
...but $4000 is $4000.
Happy birthday, @kelliebob. I hope things have only gotten better today after the Kelliest start to your day!
@runes Hey, everything okay with you? Haven't seen you around except a couple replies.
Very irritated at King Soopers' lack of integration between their app and website. I spent over an hour last night making my shopping list on the site (checking coupons, checking ads, etc) and NOTHING transferred to my phone when I got to the store! All that was on my list in the app was the ketchup I'd scanned the barcode on the night before. GRAR!
That said, yesterday I saw driving north on College Ave and saw a couple of people taking a picture of a fresh-faced young woman standing next to the CSU sign and I was awash with feels. OT1H, "Aw! I remember my first day at CSU!" OTOH, "DAMN IT, YOU ARE NEARLY IN TRAFFIC! GET AWAY FROM THE STREET, YOU MORONS!"
I contain multitudes.
This weekend is one of the worst weekends of the year. It was move in week at CSU and people are NUTS! FTR, I went to CSU and I love it but it feels like Fort Collins doubles in size for the weekend before school starts. Even moreso than graduation weekend(s). Parents lose their damn MINDS when they drop their baby off at college!
I'm far too mentally exhausted to think of anything witty right now.
