06:51 pm: Lots of Things

I worked things out with the Amazon teller and they sent me refunds for the books I didn't exactly order and that definitely weren't in my library. I didn't spend the money from the inside of the credit union because I got sick, probably norovirus, and didn't go out until Wednesday the 7th. When I was about three blocks from Kaiser, the water gauge started looking dangerous. I went and had labs, but then headed home and dropped the van off at the shop. They found a radiator that would work on the 1987 Astro and that they could get before I needed to leave on Friday. I picked it up, did some errands, and then saw the nephrologist. We pretty much went with "stable" again. On the way home, I went to the ATM and it said I had the wrong PIN again. I knew I didn't because I'd written it down and tucked it in the van. The inside of the credit union was already closed and I was really tired so I stayed home the weekend and called Customer Service again (first time was 15 minutes, this time 26 minutes) and after I was passed to a super assistant, she knew the answer and fixed it. When the guy moved the data from the old card to the new one, he didn't move the PIN, too. I went out to get money for some errands and it finally worked! This would never have happened with the original credit union. It would have been nice if they had a better credit union buy them.

My area is in the BK Delivers area and although the minimum is $10 plus $2 for delivery, I thought I'd see how it was. They said delivery would take 40-45 minutes, but it was an hour. I had about half hot things and half cold things, and they carried them in the same pizza-type bag. So the hamburger & mozzarella strips were cool and the apple slices and Hershey's pie were warm. I think that's the end of the experiment.

I had to cut more mats on Loki, but he's been pretty good about it. Junie dropped a ball into their water bowl so I squeezed it into the sink and put it behind the microwave to dry. Then I got them more water.

The Tidal Basin cherry trees are expected to start blooming on Sunday, which is sooner than usual, but that's probably because of our non-winter winter. If summer becomes a very strong summer, I'll have to stay in more than usual.

I'm now 24 newspapers behind and it's not because I don't want to read, it's because I have to sleep a lot. I'm already just skimming almost all of them, but I'm not catching up. I've decided that if I get to 30 newspapers, I'll read the comics and keep only two weeks worth of the full newspapers.

My upstairs neighbor got a giant rottweiler, weighing more than she does, and she isn't treating it as a pet, she's treating it as a guard. I told her twice that she should do crate training, and when she didn't, I asked our management guy to send a letter. She still hasn't done crate training, but the dog is much quieter. I'm a little worried it will hurt her.

I'll try to post sooner next time.

When my employer acquired another similar corporation, we were the better outfit, but since the merger we've adopted the hidebound culture of the acquired outfit.

Again, and a bit late, Happy Birthday!

Thanks! Just six days. :) The new FCU has a really annoying ebilling system that I can't count on until I go onto their site and read two parts of it.

This kind of silliness is what makes me laugh when someone asks "Why can't they run the govt like a business?"

Glad to hear that you're mostly stable -- and I hear you about the sleeping thing (reminds me of a few rounds of ick, where my choices seemed to be "pee, sleep, eat, sleep, move, sleep..." ... got absolutely nothing at all beyond the bare essentials done :( )

Yeah, sometimes I can move to something else, but usually within an hour, I fall asleep wherever I am. Did you ever find out how to stop sleeping so much?

I was lucky, and stumbled over something that worked -- it turned out that massively increasing my vitamin D and vitamin B/C intake took me from being completely flattened to being reasonably tired, but still functional, or sometimes just not tired at all.

I'm already taking a good bit of Vitamin D until I get my wisdom teeth out and go back to Fosamax, but I'll ask the doctor about B. Thanks!

Glad to see an update today - I was getting a little concerned.
What a hassle with that PIN, let's hope this is it now. Glad, too, that the problem with Amazon worked out and that your van was fixable.
Take good care,
Doris

Thanks! Yeah, not only is the PIN fixed, but I got mail today that said they've leaving me my claim (for the company I didn't know who took money) money and won't do anything else. I'm willing to bet they never figured out what it was, either.
