PG&E Needs a total attitude change grrr!
This weekend went really well. James and Dana went with us also and had dinner with us child free time PLUS not getting woke up in the middle of the night by Mom was a huge change of pace. I learned a ton at the conference and actually cant wait to use some of the skills and ideas I got. Also bought a few books there too. I also heard a very GREAT musician Jared Anderson if you look him up he is a great!!!!
ANYWAY today is Tuesday usually my day to take Jackson to Preschool spend some time out of the house and get some things done without taking a child with me WRONG!!!! Did not happen. According to PG&E supposedly sent me a letter saying that they were going to shut the electricity off from the time 9-2 Umm yeah didn't get that letter. I saw a ton of trucks piled or should I saw slammed packed into our court while I was about to drive Jackson to school. I stopped and asked them if they were going to be shutting the electricity off and they said yes I then asked for how long. They said well according to the letter 9-2 I said what letter they said the one we sent see. I said I didn't get it but please wait while I got Mom situated "HELLO she is on oxygen that is connected to the wall she is sleeping in a bed that is connected to the wall and uhhh and on a machine that helps he sleep YES CONNECTED TO THE WALL. I fixed her all up and then hopped into the car and drove home. I did some things that I needed to get done and by 10 I was home. Then she said she was stuck in bed. ACK she had forgot she couldn't get out of bed with the foot of her bed up. I got her out of bed and then it was time to go get Jackson from school and lunch I didn't want to open the fridge because I had no real idea what time they were going to be done! I had her set up in her wheelchair as we drive by these men are laying on the grass and relaxing WHAT THE HECK. Still after we get back from picking Jackson up from school and getting lunch still the same thing. By this time we had went through 2 small tanks of oxygen and it was 1pm. My friend Dana went out there and asked them how long it will be from now and they say uhhh maybe till 4-5 or maybe 6 WHAT are you kidding me. Not that it was hot or anything outside but was getting mighty warm in my moms room. ALSO she was is a lot I mean a lot of pain. These men had not consideration of that even after me saying something to them. They took a good 2 hour lunch and they were just sitting in a hole up to his waste yeah we watched he wasn't doing anything and they guys on the side lines were pretty much picking there butts and scratching while looking at this guy in a hole. My mom was actually considering going to the hospital. We were about to call the ambulance to come and get her I know I don't put it out there that she is that sick but yes I was HIGHLY IRRITATED. TAKE THAT BACK MAD!!!! I am not a complainer I am pretty easy going. If this would have been a accident or an unplanned thing we would have figured something out. I am sure we would have actually taken her to the hospital but they said 2 not 4. I know I know I have no choice but to deal with them unless I want to become Amish, but wouldn't it be oh so nice to be able to just quit PG&E. They are my highest bill yet I have no control over it either because in order for my mother to BREATHE she must have machines to assist her! OK now that I got that out!!!!
In other news this week is pretty mellow Well should I say mellow for me :)
