Today is house cleaner day. I have a couple of errands and then I'll make my usual Goodwill tour. They are having a level up for a few weeks. When you get to the register, they ask you if you would like to round up to the nearest dollar and contribute the rest. I love this and I wish they did it all year around. But, at least they are doing it now. Hope I find a bargain.

So far my new cell phone plan is great. A couple of things now work that didn't before. I had been blaming the problem on entirely the wrong system. Plus, it's just luxurious to have unlimited data again. I'm still waiting for my old telephone number to fall into Google Voice but the word on the street is 24 hours so I still have about 5 to go before it makes any sense to start concern. I just want tidy. If you call my old number it does go to voice mail and I can check that easily so no fowl [sic].

I just checked Humana Pharmacy and they did cancel my order! Yeah! There's a dodged bullet. I'm still going to test out Costco drugs. I sent a my chart message asking that the prescription be sent to the Costco store. I can see that they did, in fact, issue the prescription yesterday but I can't tell where they sent it to. I'll call Costco and ask.

I finished The Peacock Emporium last night (by JoJo Moyes). I miss it already. I have two books lined up for my next read but I know neither is going to be as wonderful as that one was.

The baseball game is at 11:30 today which will be nice. And tomorrow we have the day off so there will be a nice, long stretch of no losses. We Mariner fans live for this.


better and better

I got the phone number I've had for 26 years back and now it's in Google Voice linked to my actual phone. So when a call or text comes in to that number, I can respond via the phone or my chromebook which is very handy. But, mainly it means that number which is everywhere is still viable. Whew.

After the ballgame (which we lost by 1 run... again...) I thought I'd give Costco Pharmacy a call. ONE round of limbs on the telephone tree AND they did not tell me to pay attention as their menu options have changed. I explained that I wanted to see if they had my prescription. She asked for my name and date of birth and said that she had a bottle of benzonatate all ready for me to pick up.

So I thought why not? It early yet for rush hour. The parking lot was packed but not in my section. I walked right to the pharmacy window and with zero hassle, she told me it would be $17.56 and they use Google Pay! I had to then meet with the pharmacist who could not have been more pleasant. She asked if I'd ever used them before and I explained that I had COPD and they were my life savers. She handed me the bag and said OK! Here are some more life savers!

Seriously, it could not have been more pleasant and efficient. I was nearly home before I realized they did not ask for my insurance info which is interesting. Also, I thought, for sure, I had paid $45 last time. I just looked it up, though and it was $23. But, I do think, when it's time to reorder... Costco will be the winner.

My house is so clean. It's wonderful.
