553: After months of work with one of my meals on wheels recipients, I managed to get her social security and medicare reinstated.

555: Hubby bought me a fancy dancy new phone for Mother's Day.
556: The phone is still a pay as you go, so it fits into our budget.
557: I have internet access on my new phone. Is this good, or actually bad? Not sure yet...

  1. How cool to get to dance with a dolphin!

    I have mixed feelings about internet on the phone too......

  2. Wow, I am so jealous of dancing with the dolphin. Sorry about Crumpet's spill and ER visit. You are lucky that it's not worse.
