A Trip To Tucson

Monday the Cowboy once again taped and then spread some drywall mud in one of the bedrooms of the main house. His right arm is about ready to be finished with that chore!

Do you receive your medications through a mail order service? I used Prime Med and the process worked seamlessly. I don’t remember ever having to call them with issues. Enter Walgreens who purchased Prime Med and now I don’t refill a prescription without having to call them! They ship the meds to the wrong address, they use an expired prescription and send me an email telling me they can’t fill my prescription even though they all ready have in hand the new prescription. So, Monday part of my morning was once again spent talking to Walgreens. They found my current prescription, told me they would ship it and what the cost would be. I asked if they had a credit card on file (knowing full well they did) and she said no but when I received the medication I could just call and give them a credit card number–now does that make sense to anyone?? That same evening we received an email stating our credit card had been charged for the cost of the medication. Yep, Walgreens is the place to do business–NOT!

Tuesday just after lunch we picked up Dan and Louanne and drove to Tucson. They are off on an adventure and left bright and early Tuesday morning. They were benevolent in thinking we wouldn’t want to get up at 3am in order to get them to the airport by 5am and spent the night in a hotel near the airport–they are very kind aren’t they!๐Ÿ˜

Dan and Louanne went to Home Depot with us and we brought home their tiny purchase compared to our gigantic one–$$$$$! It was door buying time and paint buying time and door latches buying time which all added up to one big invoice!ย  Whew! We picked up our Walmart grocery order and made a very quick and unusually cheap Costco run.

Back home we found one happy little Emmi patiently (probably not) waiting for us. She is just the best little dog!

Tuesday I started the process of painting the master bath and by days end I had the ceiling finished–it’s a small bathroom–why didn’t I finish the whole painting job??ย  Well, first you have to get rid of the drywall dust which takes a while, then primer, then paint. And in and around painting the laundry has to be done, meals have to be prepared, and Emmi needs attention. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

The Cowboy has finished installing drywall in the bedrooms of the main house and is almost finished with taping and spreading drywall mud. Wednesday a friend from church and I went to Bisbee for lunch. What an eclectic little town! We wandered into some of the open shops and I brought home a bottle of lime/jalapeno balsamic vinegar plus a little gift for someone having a birthday soon. It was a good day–chilly and cloudy–but a good day.

These photos were taken early on one of our cloudy mornings last week–

  1. Golly, you are a busy lady. Just house keeping, cooking, bill
    paying……etc, etc, is enough without restoring a older
    home….AND living there to boot! As usual, Iโ€™m thoroughly
    impressed with you both.
    Yes, Walgreens gives me fits too. My insurance chose it.
    Itโ€™s the management, they are ran terrible.
    What will you do with the balsamic vinegar you
    bought ? Just curious.


    1. Yes, we are busy in this household! Glad it’s not just me and Walgreens although I don’t wish those troubles on anyone! I will drizzle the balsamic vinegar with a little olive oil over a salad–mine, not the Cowboy’s–only that white thick dressing for his salads!๐Ÿ˜†


      1. Ha!! ๐Ÿค— My Cowboy must have thousand island salad dressing
        and thinks the only real cheese is yellow and itโ€™s American cheese!
        Too old to change….. lol


  2. Painting…it seems that is all I ever do…except all the other things you have to do too. ๐Ÿคช

    Amazing photos Janna! Gay
