Do you remember all of the organization I did with my purse and the notebook? I'm thankful I did those. Mom fell in the back yard this past Thursday. Thankfully, she didn't break anything (she landed in grass that needed to be mowed), but she is having more and more difficulty in getting back up.
I've bought her a cell phone and have rigged it with a case and a lanyard for her to wear when she is going outside anywhere. The problem is, she is stubborn enough she might not wear it and end up in trouble again.
The bags and the notebook have come in handy, though, as I now have the records of meds and allergies and I know where my record is, because she has been moving her records from where she normally keeps them.
Today, after working this morning, I went back to the Container Store and picked up a few additional items, including a hanging set of shelves for the closet, which have come in very handy. It snowballed to the point where the stuff I keep as a keepsake is now stored away, my winter sweatshirts are in dresser drawers and the hanging shelves now store my insulated underwear, insulated outer wear plus a little shelf for my winter gloves, scarves, etc. It all now has a home instead of in a bag on the floor of my bedroom.
