- Son-in-law Chris stopped by on Sunday to pick up some items being borrowed for his brother's upcoming wedding rehearsal dinner. He mentioned one of his friends is in five weddings this summer--which is costly. I said there should be an official outfit for groomsmen and he replied, "There is, it's called a tuxedo, but nobody wants to have those, everybody's got to be different!", which made me laugh.
- Son Nick is preparing to move out next weekend and daughter Erica is already petitioning to have her old (larger) room back, and I want to keep the room empty until we replace the carpeting upstairs. I win!
- Traffic Rant: This one is about airports and passengers waiting to be picked up. You'd think that after sitting for an hour or two (or three or four or five, etc) that it would be nice to walk a bit, yet passengers persist in exiting the terminal building and standing at the curb mere feet from its doors, which results in a long line of cars clogging the front of the terminal. People: Just walk 30-40 steps further up the sidewalk to a clear area! Sheesh.
- At work we are having a very hard time with Medicare. They held our enrollment paperwork for electronic billing for six full weeks before persistent, near daily polite calls on the part of our billing clerk resulted in finally getting linked to our clearinghouse so we could submit claims for billing for the first time in four full months! Then yesterday the claims were rejected with the reason that the clearinghouse was not approved, resulting in another round of polite but firm calls. Sigh.
Only ONE branch has leaves. I don't think there will be any Golden Rain tree blooms happening this June at this rate!
