A Small Thing

Bleary-eyed but somewhat successful might be a good description. Rare indeed are the times when two “matters” (for lack of a better way to put it) get done.  Apparently a nice little handful of money is good motivation. Both going to the bank and getting items from the drug store were accomplished.  Exactly how isn’t known; but, it did involve getting out of the place by 10:30 a.m. The angle on that is, yours truly is usually not really functional until noon.  And, it had to be that or no drug store. 

The drug store has to be called before noon or they do not deliver it that day – in other words, no later than about 11:30 a.m.  It will then be delivered some time after 2:00 p.m., usually in the vicinity of 3:00 p.m., but it can be as late as 5:00 p.m., and once the lady left the place early and showed up at 1:00 p.m. If there’s ordering from the drug store, there can’t be plans to go anywhere.  Going to the bank had to be done before calling, especially since the taxi company might be busy and therefore “slow.” 

The trip to the bank took precedence.  The quarterly check has an expiration date of three months after the issuing date.  It’s never a thing cashed immediately as it’s “saved.”  If it’s sent into Cincinnati, it’s better to send it rather than deposit it and go through the deal of writing a personal check.  Well, the check was dated October 8, which meant get it somewhere immediately. There were two others to cash as well and the cash on hand was about $100, not enough for anything much beyond the food truck tomorrow.  

Success can be in small things.

    Well done for accomplishing the trip out today, Carolyn.

    • Hi, Gina!

      Well, this reply is really late; but, it’s here anyway. And, thanks for taking the time to comment, as I know you are busy.

      Getting out wouldn’t be so much of a problem if I didn’t have to hike to the elevators, which (as has been mentioned frequently) are a quarter of a block from the apartment. I can’t take the scooter as the landlady doesn’t like them left by the door, and it’s too much trouble to be taking it along, especially since I don’t need it in a cab.

      It’s just something to deal with or avoid.

    • Greetings, to you, too, Ann!

      Again, well, this reply is really late, too; but, it’s here anyway. And, thank you also for taking the time to comment.

      Yes, sometimes things do work out okay even when we think they can’t or won’t.

      And, you take care, too.

      Carolyn
