Thursday, and had a fun morning

Thursday, December 05, 2019

Thursday, my least favorite day of the week, but this morning I had fun. Yes, that computer telemarketer called again this morning, and I told him right off that I was not going to talk about my computer with him or anyone else, and asked him for his name, Peter, well, yesterday it was Daniel, and Michael, so it was nice to have a new friend. And where are you, oh Las Vegas, so how is the weather, and he wants to talk about the computer, nope back to the weather, now he is getting a little annoyed and is talking to someone else in the background, so second person comes on, so I ask his name, he wont tell me, and ask him what is he doing, and he keep wanting to talk about computer, and I tell him nope, I am not talking about my computer, and that I am staying on the line until he hangs up, cause I am not going to hang up, and how about I tell him about my pets. His reply, I don't want to talk about pets, I need to tell you about your computer, and I tell him nope, I am not going to talk about it, and start telling him about Merlin, and guess what he HANGS UP. This was going on for at least 10 minutes, and he was getting peed but I won. Can't wait to see if they call back. Just made my day.

I think I got all my Xmas cards made, now to write in them and get them send off. I tried not to do cards, I think, last year and hubby was so up set that he started sending out cards, so guess the cards are important to him, so back to making my own again, and most just for his relatives. And while making them I started to ache and by supper time I was so stiff and sore I didn't even clean up the kitchen like I usually do, and today my Rt. foot feels like it is totally broke. Every step I am in agony, and today I choose to start to clean a couple of closets by the front door, why oh why, do I start those things. But now I have to finish at least enough so that it is safe to walk to the living room. But boy, was it entertainment for Shorty and Kinney, they had a ball searching new areas, and leaping into the old coats that are going to Goodwill, and the empty baskets, and such. So many things to play with, even the box my copier came in a couple years ago. why I kept it, I have no idea, but they sure had fun crawling in and around, and on top of it. And all the time my foot is killing me. Right now I am watching my soap as I write this and I know just from the ache that when I stand up and start in again it is going to really really hurt. And the Kits, well they are both passed out on the sofa. Just couldn't take anymore excitement.

Well, soap is over in about 5 minutes so better let you all go, so take care and have a Get day. Mine will be trying to get these closets done. Linda

    I am sitting here with a bag of ice on the arch of my right foot. I have flat flat flat feet and sometimes something shifts out of place.

    Sounds like fun when you get to piss off the scammers. I used to do that, but now I just let the phone ring and go to the answering machine. Yep we still have one of those old antiquated answering machines. Now the phone just rings and whoever from where ever just hangs up. I love when the machine says "Thank you for your call".

    Wow I hope your foot feels better soon. Hubby has foot problems and he really suffers a lot, so I understand how it is when the foots starts to hurt.

    Take care and glad you got things taken care of and gave the kittens something new and exciting to play in and on.

    Wasting their time is the best thing you can do - the more time they spend listening to you, the fewer other people they will be pestering with their scam. Hope your foot feels better soon. Cats and boxes - they will always prefer the box to what came inside it. You probably kept the box because the instructions said if you need to return it for any reason, it must be sent in the original packing. I have several boxes like that in the attic.

    Good morning, friend! Gosh, so sorry to learn about your foot injury. There's no good time of year for that, but especially not during the holidays! I hope the foot is better soon.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the post of support and the kudos. Always appreciate it. Maybe one day I will stop having to deal with the same 15-20# of weight gain! Hope springs eternal!

    LOL, I loved how you handled the telemarketers.....that was special emoticon

    I love how you dealt with those computer guys. I'm sorry about your foot. I am having a lot of trouble with my right heel and it makes it so hard to do just about everything! Take care.

    emoticon Here's a thumbs up from my sister on the telemarketer. She has a ball messing with 'em till they give up. So sorry your foot is bothering you; other than my ankle problems, at least my plantar fasciitis hasn't acted up in a long time, knock on wood. I can imagine those kitties having a blast with your closet cleaning. Mine have certainly enjoyed all the boxes going to and from my mom's. Grayce wants to guard them all and claim every one as MINE. Russian Blues are very territorial. Yes, our dentist is a keeper. He took over the practice from his dad who was our dentist before. You can imagine that was one proud father. I like his son even better. Both of them have a wonderful attitude about non-essential work instead of seeing how many things they can find wrong to fix, rather like some mechanics when they look at your car.
