My kitchen floor now has an added layer of very clean oatmeal/choc. chip cookie crumbs on it. I think those are supposed to be particularly sanitary, right?

No we don't, and and they are great floor cleaners, aren't they? Maybe I could find one that licks a lot so it could really keep that kitchen floor clean.

This is why I borrow (baby-sit) my sister's dog so often. Problem is that she is very prissy and picky about what she does and doesn't pick up. You can just hear her say "Eewwwwww!"

Now I also "borrow" her daughter's dog - a Pomeranian mix - my guess is with terrier, from the way she races around and always gets into trouble. She's like Mikey on the Life cereal commercial. She'll eat anything!


PS: I have another sister that takes a multitude of prescriptions and every supplement that sounds good to her. Once, when she was visiting, she dropped her heavily laden pill box. I'm still finding pills around the house!

Kate [i](Cared for Mom for years before anyone else noticed the symptoms, but the last year of her life was rough and we needed to place her in an SNF, where she passed in February 2012)[/i]

Coy's daughter distributes all of our pills into weekly boxes every two weeks. She came over tonight to stay with Coy while I went for a cpap fitting, and she put all those spilled pills back where they belong in the box. (I'm sure it was harder than filling all 4 boxes from bottles!)

So this little episode is over for me. What will the next adventure be?

I have been dropping more pills since you started this thread….. :oops:

this morning I found the limit of my trust to pick it up and put it in my mouth….
it was a hard decision…because it was a half of a provigil pill…..$$$$

it didn't roll…..cause it ain't round…
but, it slid up against the kitchen cabinet, on the floor, in my RV…

I was trying to multi task…. :lol:

I had the five minute grits going on the back burner,
the coffee going in the coffee pot,
the sausage was already in the plate,
and the two eggs were just about….easy….
oops…..take that provigil …..before the food….(works better)

too many things…
dropped it…
so, I remembered that I have recently sprayed some ant poison right against that space….

$$$$ in the garbage…..not in my mouth….
