Lucia Sees Manatees Splashing!
Lucia called from Florida but I missed the call (see below). She proclaimed the trip a success, and was excited to have seen manatees splahing and playing.
I missed the call as I took E grocery shopping. I actually felt less lousy side than usual --yay! We went to Slaveways where I beat on her to get her up to speed using her calculator to add the prices. She is getting the checks from the payee in fifty-buck-with-five-bucks-or-less-change checks, so she needs to get some kind of awareness going. She got off to a rocky start, by adding up $3+$3+$5 and getting $1. I was busy shoving in my 2 cents about dollars and the dot to separate the dollars from the change, and the big number on the price sign indicating the dollar, while the small numbers are the change, and the sale items have the price for one (usually) marked. Then she got it, and felt great and in control. She added up fine, then banged the calculator and it went back to 0. I had no idea what it'd been, so I just estimated $35, and we kept going. She got a dollar back in change! Yahoo! Then we journeyed to the Grocery Outlet, where one of the women knew E and gave her some good licks. I bought a whole lot of candy bones, as we have made lots of skeleton video animation movies at school, and the boxes were 3 for a buck. Then I took her home and she carried her things up the stairs in about 5 trips. I drove home and put all my things away. Tomorrow Billie is coming to get some things to sell at two Xmas bazaars -- in aid of my Secret Plan 12b.
