Repaired and sewed some pants in the sewing room. Lunch was served at 10:15 AM. Luncheon menu: baked chicken, sweet potatoes, green beans, pudding and bread. Talked to Doris at 10:35 AM: Doris had a couple of asthma attacks last night because of the smoke form the wild fire up North. She had to use her nebulizer. I told her she did a good job getting the van smogged and sent in the registration. I told her I was proud of her for standing up to Mava. She should not let Mava bully her. Doris finally figured out how to start the van remotely, she just have to check it periodically to ensure there is enough gas in the van and fill it up. clarified sick Call Out is another term for an appointment, It does not mean I am sick but an excuse for not having to work, She felled down from the stepper and she called Diana to help her get up. Her walking is better and she walked 6000 steps yesterday.
