(Joliet, IL) Hi 78 Lo 59 -- Perfect day. Today was a day of errands. Our first stop was the bank to get some financial papers notarized. We weren't sure where to go, but I remembered a long time ago someone mentioned that banks usually have a notary service. We stopped at the first bank we came to, a First Midwest Bank. It's the first time we were actually inside a bank in a long time. The nice lady teller was kind enough to notarize our papers, and she also faxed them for us, all at no cost. It was great customer service, considering we don't have an account there. It was nice to have good service for a change.
We went to a nearby mall to kill some time before our appointment to get my car windshield fixed. We walked around for a while and then had some lunch before heading a couple of miles down the street to Safelite. We got there a little early, before they were back from lunch. But we only had to wait a few minutes. I passed the time on our Droids, me playing Words With Friends and Jim reading on his Kindle app.
On the way home we stopped by an RV dealer to have one of our propane tanks filled. The tank we ran off of last week when we ran our generator all afternoon finally ran out. When we got home I continued doing some some research on an assisted care place in NC for my mom. I've made a few phone calls, and I'm getting all kinds of offers to visit some facilities when we get back to Raleigh in October. Some of them want to give us tours and treat us to lunch. I'm surprised they do that since there's usually so many people waiting to get into assisted care facilities. We'll work with mom to get her financials in order and help her make a decision on where she wants to go. Then hopefully we'll help her move while we're there in October. I chatted online with mom quite a bit today. I'm so proud of her for being able to do it.
The evening was spent on chat and TV watching. Tomorrow we get to spend some more time with grandson Jack and son Rick. Can't wait!
