This morning, I was sleeping the sleep of the just when Tommy woke me at 9 am like I asked him. My hair needed washing before we went to Tommy's doctor. So, I was on my way to another sleep of at least my 7.5 requirement.
We both needed to go to the doctor's office so the nurse could set him up with a blood sugar monitor that used my phone. Well, I have to get a different phone as mine won't work with the monitor. I am very surprised. So, I have to get a different phone, a Samsung.
He can get a little monitor to use with the device. But, he said that we would just get me a new phone. I did not encourage the little monitor. If he had that, we would never know where it was as he would drop it somewhere like one side of his chair and have to search. Or, he would leave it out of the reach of both of us. If he took it in the car, he would not give it to me to check when I thought his blood sugar was dropping. He can get it out of my phone anytime he likes as I put my purse in the same place all the time and accessible to both of use. So, we left.
Since I needed things from Big Box, we went there. I found leggings for $2 and got three pair. I want to wear them in the house during the winter. I really did not care what color, so got once cute pair and two pair to cover my cold, nakedness. There were no black ones in my size as they have sold out! So, I came home pleased as punch at the great price.
As I pulled off the hanger one pair, the cute pair, I realized I had bought capri leggings. Bummer and double Bummer. I will wear this pair in the house or the yard, but the other two pair were bought for the cheap price and just to wear around this winter only in the house. So, this is a dilemma. I am wearing the cute black pair with pink flowers all over. I may take the other two back, maybe not. I will have to wear leg warmers to keep my legs warm from the calf to ankles!
Okay, I wore the cute pair of capri leggings. The back waistband pulls down too far. I can fix that. I think I will take the other two pair back. I hate to lose a $2 deal, but they will not work. The big takeaway from this is they are not cute enough to be uncomfortable or to fix!
I also got two jackets to decide which I wanted. I don't think I like either one. But, I have the receipts to return them.
Last night, I was anxious to wash the glass serving dish and see how pretty it was. It was yellowed and sticky. Plus, I didn't know if it were etched from soap. Vinegar on a cloth took away the yellow and sticky. It does not look etched, but it will never have soap on it ever again, only vinegar.
Last year or two years ago, I bought a cute sundress from a major department store. I could never get it returned because I lost the receipt. The store took back the other things I bought on the same receipt. I called cs national. They told me when exactly I bought the dress and what to tell the people at the store to get the return. Well, that did not go over well. The clerks were young women who were overworked and I did not feel like arguing. (Even Publix is having trouble finding or keeping people.)
In the meantime, I found something at this department store I want. So, I got on the phone and got no answers and was put on hold. Sooo, I emailed cs and asked for a call. The young man called and we had a good talk for 1:50. Yes, one hour and fifty minutes. No, I did not talk his ear off. He talked my ear off. lol. The dress was $18 and cs had given me the day and time I purchased it before. He said keep the dress and wash the car with it if I liked. He was sending me a $50 egift card. Suits me!
Tommy brought in the mail and I have two coupons for a free loaf of my favorite bread. In other good news, dinner is leftovers, so no cooking tonight. But, we need to load the dishwasher, so no rest.
However, I am going into the kitchen and drag something out of a box until I find a thing Tommy does not want. If he wants it thrown out, I will keep on until I find something to take to the thrift store. No one wanted anything from the free box we put by the road.
Update: I had to take off that pair of leggings I liked because they were just too tight in the crotch! All three pair go back.
Do you wear a blood sugar monitor? How is it? Do you think service in stores and customer service in stores is worse? Have you had good luck with customer service on the phone? Tell me all about it.
