- You'd think I would be packed already for my trip tomorrow. Or at least have my clothes washed, but you'd be mistaken. Especially since we are completely out of laundry soap when I just checked this morning. Sigh.
- My mom came over and tried out the new laminate floors in her stocking feet. She could slide pretty far!
- We had a confused and probably homeless woman come into our office the other day, saying someone told her to meet an attorney about her money problems (we are a medical office). She could not remember anyone's phone number or names to call and pick her up, but was clean and seemed generally okay. She went in and out of the waiting room a few times and I looked at her ID and folder of papers from her bank, trying to figure out how to help her. She thought she heard her daughter's voice in the office, and said she has been looking for them. Eventually we called the police to come help her. She told the officer that I had taken her ID, but I told him that I looked at it and handed it back to her and she put it in her wallet. The officer talked to her for some time but she was no danger to herself or others so there wasn't much he could do. Finally, he let her simply walk away. I was half afraid she would turn up again the next day but there has been no sign of her. Sad!
- Traffic Rant: People who don't use turn signals. Especially those who are turning into driveways with a line of cars behind them, all of us gnashing our teeth at their thoughtlessness.
