one very stressful day

Monday, August 05, 2013

I went to the bank to get money to buy a money order to pay the rent. I had a bad check once and now I must use money orders or cashiers checks. When I got to the bank there was no place to park. I had to park at the grocery store next door and walk over. That is okay, I like to walk. I waited in line for a long time to find out that their computers were not working. I had to go to another branch. I had to walk back to my car in the rain. emoticon . It was not a hard rain, but the point I had to walk back. I drove to the other location to find out that the first place could have looked up my record to see that I had enough money to take out to buy the money order. She was just lazy.
I took the money and went to the grocery store and got the money order and some grapes.
I came home and took my son to his Open house for Middle school. When we got home the internet was working and my cable TV was not working. Why? I tried to call COX cable and
they said that it should be working. They can not send anyone till Saturday. I will not be home Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. My son in 13 and he can not be the adult to let the repair person in. I do have an antenna that I attached to my TV and I can get 9 digital channels. But I want to watch TBS and A&E They both have good shows that I love to watch. I will have to see the reruns. Or maybe they will be available online.

I exercised today. 45 minutes on the recumbent bike. emoticon

I have good news. I have two interviews set for Tuesday. I like my new job, but I am not sure if the long hours will be good for my son. My first interview will be at 10:00 at HyVee and the second at 1:00 at Von Maur. Wish me luck
