Chris' addiction

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

In addition to my other wise know vices, I have one I just know one day is setting up to bite me in the proverbial you know where- I love to buy things on Ebay (mostly tools and test equipment / telecom equipment). I just had to back out a a sale that I had bid on a cable knife I didn't really need (but I bid on anyway emoticon). I got it for 99 cents- the kicker was that the guy wanted almost TEN BUCKS to mail it from the states!!! I tried to get him to just put it into a padded envelope ( I got a chesivale tone and probe from England and the guy charged me a couple of quid for postage). Well I fired off a couple of emails to the gu , the last one explaining that I doubted very much he was making money off of the transaction so he cancelled it, thinking about it today I guess I could have just gone ahead with it but I get too much grief from someone (good thing she only knows about HALF of the stuff I got HE HE - guess I better make sure I don't die first!!!).

Well I started lifting (some) weights tonight it felt really really good even though they were lighter than I was used to . The pain in my side is stating to subside so that's good news as it was starting to drive me crazy.

It felt great!

a relief

Well I found out that it likely is NOT a hernia just some pulled muscles. (yeah I finally made it to my GP), then I went to what I thought was to finally get my cyst removed from my head only to find out "he" the so called surgeon (turned out to be just ANOTHER DERMATOLOGIST) can;t do it today but at least he said he WILL do it (in 4 to 5 months time-YIKES) . So he probably pockets at least a cool couple of hundred from the provincial health care plan for seeing me all of 5 minutes- nice work if you can get it. Well that it for me tonight.

    They are all that way. M.D.s no longer remove a hangnail - they send you to a hangnail expert. LOL.

more joy

Thursday, December 29, 2011

I was going to go into today with my wife and she didn't want to drive because of the freezing rain we got (but a couple of hrs later she went to IKEA on the other side of the city with MY truck!!! emoticon) So yet another day maybe tomorrow except I have to go in for surgery at 12:30 so it will have to be on the am.
Not holding out any hope.

    We only have one 4 wheel drive vehicle - my hubby's FX4 so when I have to get out I take it. LOL. He usually drives our old van anyway.
