What a busy week! Last Thursday I had a meeting with the volunteers for The Salvation Army Red Shield Clinic. It was very interesting. I learned that I will have an office to work in and help procure
medications from drug companies for indigent patients whose drugs aren't on the Salvation Army list
(ie. the list of meds that the clinic can pay for). For now I will be the receptionist the fourth Tuesday of each month.
Facts I learned: Did you know that if a person lives in their car, they are not considered homeless by the federal government? Did you also know that people who couch hop (live from friend to relative night to night) are also not considered homeless? The Salvation Army Clinic will look at the whole person and their needs and not just their medical conditions.
Tuesday night I was having a Stampin Up party! Of course, we waited till the last days to clean. Does anyone else do this, or do you have a regular weekly schedule?
Ten people showed up for my party. It was a challenge getting the instructions straight with everyone yapping away! Still, we had a lot of laughs!
The first card made was for me from a kit that the demonstrator sells. I love the dotted paper!
Next we made this cute Easter card.
Lastly, we made this very complicated card. Complicated, cause everything is done backwards!
The jury is still out if I like the antique effect or the chalk paint.
It was a very successful party. I received over $100 in free product! So exciting!
Yesterday I worked at the Senior Center as receptionist. Whenever I have to work, I also buy the meal. They have the most delicious deserts!
Today I am going to visit Mom. The health care center had to increase her oxygen. She has a cold and is despondent about being ill, afraid of getting pneumonia again. Please pray for her.
