Good News and Another Shopping Adventure

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Good News.

My Beautiful Bride is able to shrug both of her shoulders with effort, use a walker with several hefty modifications, and somewhat navigate stairs with a rail. That is a long way from December second.

My Beloved’s mom will be living with us for a while and today is her day to visit. COVID restrictions allow for one visitor per 24 hour period, so we take turns.

My daughter will get to go tomorrow, so today, I ran errands.

With that time, I had to stop by the bank.

A while ago, I had taken my supervisor’s shirt in to have a patch sewn on and they attached it wrong. You can read about it here if you are interested.

Well, to make a short story long, I returned the shirt and they would not make it right without me paying again.

The total for one patch repair was under 10 dollars so I went to the bank ATM to get cash.

After going back, they told me that it was their mistake and would not take my money. Someone there made it right. Way cool.

They Did Not Take Me To The Cleaners

I notifed my supervisor that her shirt was done.

Hopefully, she has not been promoted or something and is unable to use it.

Paying bills and buying things all by myself has been among toughest parts of this journey with my family. Fortunately, she is expected to be home December 30th.

    That is good news, and I know how that is because my dad had two strokes. Along with one of my ex’s who had two friends who had them in their late thirties to early forties.
