OK – Things were going good until Monday morning! This is thanks to BCBS screwing up on Monday (cost me more time to get it cleaned up). Tuesday it was our Credit Union who screwed up our IRA RMD (another couple of days to get that fixed) and by then I was screaming at them! Then by Thursday I did not feel good (Hum wonder why) Is it me or am I having another bad month???? What am I doing wrong – breathing?????
Thursday I had interruptions most of the day and did not feel well due to having to deal with the 2 companies listed above – think it was a little left over STRESS? But I was determined to sew on Alexander!
But then I had problems with my eyes and could no longer stand it! My eyes have been giving me fits ever since the surgery with swelling of the eye lids and bags under my eyes which I had never had before! I hit the brick wall! I called the eye doctor and got an appointment for yesterday – Problem Resolved – she put plugs in my eye ducts which has helped immensely. My eyes are not near as puffy from the dry eye. These are temporary plugs and I have to go back in January to get check to see how I am doing. Oh Yea! I will now have her put in permanent silicone plugs as soon as she can!
Additionally, those pesky eye lashes were growing back into the eye – and that is really fun! She took care of them but I will probably have to go in every 6 weeks or so to make sure they are not doing it again!
I am done with this mess – why didn’t I go in sooner – well because I listened to them telling me it was dry eye and it would settle down. Why do I listen to anyone? No sewing for 2 days – can you hear the frustration??????????????
Then this morning I was going to be on a roll UNTIL I realized that I was not receiving email from my Gmail account into my MSN account. I could not figure out why this was happening and I have been around computers since 1966!!!
Here it is 4:15 and I have found the problem after numb nuts from Microsoft drove me nuts for over an hour trying to figure out the problem, and of course there are no humans that work for Google, so I finally figured out what was happening because of ME! We have been receiving so much Junk Mail that I guess I just blocked the wrong people. I have now corrected that. That was not fun either! But before I did I manually sent all emails from the last 2 days to myself so now I have 63 emails to go through!
It wasn’t bad enough that I had this type of day, Clay called Home Depot to see if they had a 5′ gate to add to our chain link fence so he could get his mower and leaf vacuum machine in and out easier in the front yard. Poor guy – the lady told him that she would hold the gate for him ##### BUT did not tell him that he needed to pay for it over the phone in order to hold it! I was immersed with my Karma Saturday so he wasted over 3 hours at HD. They could not find the gate that the lady was holding for him and wanted him to buy a double gate – he stood his ground and they finally found it! What a ZOO! If she would have given him the right information as to where it was being held AND that it would be better to give her a credit card to hold it! Another company employee who doesn’t know their job! This was a 60 mile round trip – standing on cement for 3 hours for someone who has Neuropathy in his feet! You know he is HAPPY with his Karma Saturday!
I think if we were drinkers we would be drunk and smoking a pack of cigarettes OR if I did not want to be sick tomorrow I would eat a whole pizza!
Thank you for listening – I feel better – do you!
Here is were I was on Wednesday afternoon and so happy because I had changed the way I was cutting my strips thank you to the Blogger who suggested that I cut a 10 1/2″ strip WOF and then cut the 1 1/4″ strips lengthwise – she was saving my bacon!
Clay and I know that we need to be thankful for our health at 75, financially sound, and have all the toys in the world, but this week was another week from Hell for both of us. It is no wonder that I am not meeting my goals with my quilting. I wish that the younger generation were not so ill informed about how to do their jobs – it is costing me precious time that I do not have at my age!
Does anyone else ever feel this way??????????? Where is Pizza Hut when you need a FIX?
I will make no promises to when this quilt due to stupid people who cause me problems, and tomorrow at 10 we have someone coming to give an estimate to do some clearing of dead trees – there goes my spending spree which usually gets me out of my depraved state of mind! That is another issue that is not worth talking about!
Hoping that everyone comes back tomorrow for Slow Stitching Sunday – I MAY have something to show, but do not hold your breath! I promise to be nice! I guess I should call my Blog – The Complaining Quilter!
It does pay to vent!!! Unless everyone quits following me! LOL
