09:48 - Barbara’s dad is doing much better, and may go home from the hospital today. Apparently, he had both pneumonia and a UTI, both of which have been knocked down by antibiotics. Barbara says her dad is insistent that he wants to leave Thursday for the family reunion in Pennsylvania, but it still worries me. A 90-year-old man recovering from pneumonia should be taking it easy, not taking an 8 or 9 hour car trip. But, as Barbara says, her dad is stubborn. And Marines are nothing if not tough. At least he won’t be driving.
Today we sold our first science kit to a customer in Winston-Salem. I’m not sure why I was surprised when I saw the address. There are a lot of homeschoolers in North Carolina.
Today I need to make up a batch of 30 shipping boxes for chemistry kits. We actually have 60 chemistry kits in progress, but we do kits in batches of 30 because we simply don’t have room in the assembly area to do 60 at a time. At the moment, I’m burning DVDs for the new batch of 30 biology kits, which is the last item we need to complete the kits. We’ll get those boxed up and stacked, which’ll free up a lot of space. After we get those boxed and stacked, we’ll box and stack the 30 chemistry kits, and then start on 30 forensic science kits.
