My day

Monday, September 24, 2012

I woke up around 2am and have chest pains. Hubby told me to take my anxiety pill. I did not hear the alarm clock and woke up one hour later. Thank God I got my daughter to school in time. Had breakfast and then reply Spark Mail. As usual, it is like therapy for me when I reply my Spark buddies.

I am glad I manage to go for my 30 minute late morning walk with Betty (my neighbor.) Today high temp is 73°F. Tried to take it easy for the rest of the day. Watched three episodes of HK TVB drama.

Checked daughter's homework, Monday communication envelop between the teacher and parent and also fill in paperwork and payment for her school picture day tomorrow. Got done early enough to take her to another park, Highland Park. Forgot to bring camera, so no pictures. Hubby watched her while I do another 30 minute walk. Pick up dinner from KFC. It's been awhile since we have it. Besides, my nutrition tracker says I am still within range. So, I am good.

I have just been so tired these days. Lately, my hormones has been given me problems. That is the reason why I have not been in the mood to write. Hope everyone is doing well.

  It must be so scary to wake up with chest pains. Do the anxiety pills take the pain away quickly?
Please take care of yourself......... emoticon

Dear Tech Support

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a slow down in the overall performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0

In addition, Husband 1.0 un-installed many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, but installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0. And now Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and House Cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?

Signed,
Desperate

    Dear Desperate,

You have many programs not working correctly. Perhaps if you reboot or turn the computer off and on again, it will function better?

Way too cute ... thanks for the smile! emoticon
