This has been such a wild week with all of the news from across the country. It is amazing how quickly we get information now with the internet. Still, my nephew rarely hears about current events since we don't have network TV and I guess none of his teachers or classmates mentioned anything. He starts high school next year. Maybe he will start to care about things that go on in the world.
Last week I got a few things accomplished. I made a simple business plan for my business and I set up a spreadsheet for expenses. I decided to go with BigCommerce for my online shopping cart. I tried hosting my own shopping cart but it was too confusing. My free trial with BigCommerce will be over after this week but I am not ready to sign up yet. I'm planning the shopping cart set-up when school gets out at the end of May.
My nephew and I went to the eye doctor on Friday. I took a half day, went home and took a nap before the appointment. The doctor said that my nephew is near-sighted and needs glasses and I can get reading glasses if I want them. My insurance pays for glasses so I ordered reading glasses. I haven't noticed a problem. I am worried that my nephew is going to lose his glasses. My benefits only pay for one pair a year. He hasn't lost his cell phone yet (just misplaced it a couple of times) so maybe there is hope. I must factor in the cost of the eye exam and glasses for my nephew for when I quit my job and get my own insurance. I don't believe it covers vision.
After the eye doctor, we spent the evening at a school function for science, math and engineering. He spent the whole time on the inflatable jousting, obstacle course and jumping castle. At least he got some exercise.
Yesterday I took the puppies for their first shots. A couple of them got car sick on the way so they were a mess by the time I got them to the vet. Only 3 more weeks and they should be ready to go to new homes. One of them is already pre-adopted.
I am trying to figure out when to go to the fair. It is going on all this week. I'd probably have to take another half day off to go though. The weekend crowds are too much for me. So far, I don't think I have anything else scheduled for this week except taking my truck in for an inspection. I mustn't forget that or the registration will expire.
