Blood Clots Can Kill

It didn’t dawn on my mother nor myself to let the dentist know that she is currently taking medicine to thin her blood due to a concern about a blood clot forming in one of her legs. So when the dentist found out about the prescription he had to reschedule the root canal that she had scheduled. Apparently you have to be off of this medicine for a certain amount of time before having any type of medical procedure where bleeding might be a concern.

It’s a good thing that this tooth isn’t causing her any pain or discomfort right now. There is nothing worse than having a toothache. Good strong teeth don’t exactly run in the family so I have tried really hard to instill good dental health in our kids as well as myself.

So we rescheduled mother’s appointment and will try again then to get her mouth in good working order once again. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Right To The Moon Alice

Some times our daughter, Alice, and her new husband just don’t use their heads. After they up and moved to San Diego in southern California they just seem to keep messing up one thing or another and expect us to come pick up the pieces and clean up their messes.

When they first started talking about doing a kitchen remodel San Diego style because they met some guy who promised them the moon, we urged them to take things slowly and do some good old fashioned research before jumping at the chance to basically buy into something that sounded too good to be true. Of course they got burned and are now trying to figure out how to fix it.

So after urging them a second time to take it slow and use their heads they finally found a San Diego remodeling company that is willing to come out and fix the problems and continue the job for a reasonable price. Guess we know what they will be using their tax refund check for this year and it sure won’t be for paying us back any of the money that they owe us! Kids, gotta love them…

Checking Records

We recently have had a death in the family and had the need to search and find Marriage Records for the family member that passed away. What we found was very amazing, The national data base can be searched by state, county, city, or zip code and this let us find the information that we needed. USMarriageRecords.org let us find this information and it was very quick and easy to use. The web site was very easy and had all the information that we needed.

Plenty of Online Degrees To Be Had

With the economy still in such turmoil and not showing any signs of improving any time soon, we are still seeing a rash of people going back to school in order to further their education in an effort to find a decent paying job after all of their hard work and graduation. And since so many of us are so busy with numerous other events, like working several jobs, trying to raise our families, doctor and dentist appointments, running our households, doing yard work, taking care of elderly parents, running around to soccer, basketball, baseball, football, cheer leading, gymnastics and other sports that most kids are involved in, it doesn’t leave much room for us to go back into a class room setting.

Currently my sister is seriously checking into getting her masters degree in public health via the Internet, which I think she will certainly excel in (the classes and the field) since she is smart as a whip as well as having a heart of gold and she was blessed with a good level head on her shoulders. The world could use a lot more good people just like her, not only in the public health fields but in any field these days. I know it must sound weird, me bragging on her so much but we come from a fairly large family that has had it’s fair share of issues that have really taken their toll on many of our siblings and other close relatives and she has managed to stay out of trouble and tow the line all this time. We have always been very close and I am so very proud of her.

So these popular online classes seem to be filling up quickly and rightfully so. I know of a couple of people that have recently gotten their¬†degree in human services online.¬† We all spend so much time on our computers that it just makes sense to take advantage of these readily available online classes that are being offered more and more each year. I myself would enjoy going back into the classroom and get the whole classroom experience, but that is just me. And since the kids are older now and my folks are still pretty much in good health I could go back to school, the old fashioned way. I think I would enjoy the interaction with the other students and the teachers as well, although I didn’t enjoy that aspect of my education during my formal schooling years. Too bad that youth is wasted on the young!

 

The Neighbor’s Kid

It didn’t take as long as I expected it to in order to install the two outdoor ceiling fans installed today as I had expected. The next door neighbor’s 16 year old son came over and was a tremendous help, which was a pleasant surprise. He doesn’t have his father in his life and really needs a male role model and I have been trying to do what I can with him in order to help him learn some things that guys should know about around the house and yard. He is a good kid and is actually growing into a useful human being around here lately.
