Medication Drop Off Tomorrow!

Almost 4 months to the day after writing this post, we will be getting rid of Mae's unused IV antibiotics tomorrow. After inquiring for what seems like forever to people who don't seem to give a shit about our groundwater, I came across a guy at the county's planning office who was planning an event to address this very important issue. Tomorrow, Saturday October 3 from 9-11 there will be drop off locations throughout the county where residents may drop off any unused medication to be disposed of properly.

Over the summer the county also introduced a medication drop off box at the police department. I went (wearing my bathing suit) to try and get rid of the meds then but there was a sign on the box saying that liquid medications would not be accepted (although the website had no information about exclusions), so back home with my big bag of IV meds once again. I was tempted to overlook the sign but the surveillance camera discouraged me from committing what I'm sure is a crime. I can see the news story now. "County woman wearing only a bathing suit and cover up shoves 15 bags of IV antibiotics into drop box at local police station."I just hope after waiting all this time that we will be able to get rid of it once and for all.

Sorry, I'm sure I missing the point here. Why did you go there wearing just a bathing suit?

I know, weird right? I was taking the girls to one of those splash pad water parks... and trying to get tan.

It also happened to be Wardrobe Wednesday.

The drop box was in the entryway so I didn't have to actually go inside but still it was a little odd.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to select a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
