And now I lost my checkbook again!!!

Sunday, February 27, 2011

This time I had to call the bank and stop payment on 29 missing checks.....hope I find them...last time I had to do that I found the missing checks within the day. I last remember having the checkbook as I stood for a good 20 minutes checking out at the Best Buy paying for my new desktop computer. (There are certainly a lot of add-ons when it comes time to pay for the computer...but thank goodness my last one served me well for 10 years.) I can pick up the computer today and should be on line as usual shortly. My older laptop doesn't want to connect to the new internet provider (called Clear), but the laptop I am borrowing from my husband got on instantly. I spent over an hour on the phone last night trying to get my other laptop online and finally had to say it was my bedtime and I would call back today. The connection problem is being sent to second level customer service....so I might do that later today.

So much phone work between the bank and the internet provider and also buying and setting up a new desk top computer. I guess I have my day planned out for me.

I plan to go to the gym today as I haven't been there since Thursday and my joints are stiffening up on me.

And on top of that...I lost my checkbook and cash card....

Saturday, February 26, 2011

But luckily found it just before going to bed (it was under my pillow!!!)....

So if you read my blog yesterday I had waaaay too much going on and completely wore myself out trying to get my computer on line.....and stayed up too late the night before and had to get up early so got only 5 hours of sleep....

Last night I slept 12 hours and feel only slightly subhuman this morning and had a nice surprise when my scale showed a 2+ lb weight loss....

I am sure today will be better....however, my old (10+ year) computer has bit the dust. The last time I had the computer repairman out he said it was not worth fixing again...so I am going computer shopping at Best Buy.

I am on my laptop hooked up directly to the internet so I am not sitting in my comfortable easy chair as usual. I hope to find something not too fancy (read...not too fancy of a price) at Best Buy as I really like their insurance policy as far as replacement of computers when they don't work correctly.

When I was off line, I couldn't even SHOP!!!! (Poor baby!!!)

Blurry eyes and computer problems at home....

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

I wasn't able to get on the computer until just a few minutes ago.

I might need a new modem or a new Linksys (wireless router). For now I can use the desktop computer and I am surprised how well I can see on it. It is an oversize screen and so at 100% it is quite readable. I spent about 2 hours frustrated trying to deal with Comcast and at one point had to hang up and swear a little...and then called back and waited in line again to speak to someone who actually was very nice.

I called my neurologist this afternoon regarding the blurry vision getting worse again and I was so surprised when I got a call back in about 10 minutes with a change in my dose of the generic Mestinon. I sure hope this does the trick as driving and not being able to read the road signs and having to ask for special consideration at work because I cannot read small numbers is very frustrating.

I also had to deal with the insurance company and my gym to try to straighten out a problem getting signed up for a health promotion(worth $680 this year) and so I tried to stay calm while I dealt with those people. I think I was successful in getting my husband and me signed up for the rebate on our gym memberships. emoticon

    Congrats on the gym rebate. I wish my husband would go with me, but no such luck.

Tuesday morning and back to work after 3-day weekend....

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

I luckily had yesterday off to take hubby to the doctor (doctor cancell all his appointments due to the weather...18 inches of snow at my house).....so I didn't have to make excuses about not going to work in the blizzard conditions. There were about 400 accidents in the previous 2 days in the Metropolitan area (Mpls & St Paul) and about 300 cars fell off the road.....typical for a blizzard in these parts. Glad I am not a statistic.

I haven't peeked outside yet but I believe it did not snow more than an inch or so.........I peeked and it was less than an inch of snow overnight with some minor drifting. When we get major drifting it is hard to know where the edge of the road is and that is one way people fall off the roads. Usually on the highways in the city they land in a snowdrift and there is no major damage.... but out in the suburbs there is a better chance of hitting a tree or falling into a pond or worse. I definitely will drive slowly and leave an extra half hour earlier than my regular time. I only need to go 10 miles but will allow myself a full hour to get there. I can always spark if I get to work too early. (Thank goodness Sparkpeople is not one of the blocked websites!!!)

    Snow is just one of the hardships of winter. Spring is coming, right?

    My sister lives in Minnesota and used to live in the Mpls/St Paul area, but both her husband and she recently retired....and they are so thankful that they do not have to get out in it. They also moved out to the country so they do not have to worry about shoveling the snow off the sidewalks....or get fined.

Drive carefully and stay warm.
