I wanted to pop in and say hi and thanks to everyone for their words of encouragement for Amanda.
I’m happy to report she got home yesterday afternoon.
And she was able to avoid surgery. They all passed on their own. She was even able to miss the CAT scan.
After we got her back to our side of town everyone went for lunch. As you might imagine Doug, myself , she and Nathan were not exactly sparkling conversationalists, having been at the ER the whole night before. Evelyn who came for lunch carried most of the conversation since she wasn’t sleep deprived.
By 2pm yesterday I was in deep ZZZ’s and stayed that way til some time after 7.
I woke up just in time for the People’s Choice Awards.
Why I even bothered to turn it on I have no idea. I only knew at best 50% of the people nominated and of those probably 20% by name only. When they announced the winner they didn’t even identify what show they came from. So for the most part, I was clueless. Not that that’s anything new these days.
I was in time to catch Adam Sandler’s bit which I guess he thought was funny.
I didn’t. And it went on way long too.
I think next year I’ll just watch something on Netflix.
After the show was over I thought I’d get online, visit everyone and perhaps write a post for today.
I thought I would anyway.
It wasn’t to be.
My Toshiba laptop, a Japanese POS, has taken ill again and is down yet again.
I’m going to see if Nathan has the time tonight and can resurrect it.
I’m not holding out a lot of hope however.
If it can’t be I’m really screwed. I have photos ready to load for Ecofab.
I’m at Amanda’s now and using their desktop computer. But it’d be a huge imposition if I had to be here everyday. Not to mention I’m not even sure I could run a site without a working computer at home.
So depending on whether or not Nate’s successful you may or may not see me around a lot. I’m in no position to buy another computer right now. That much I know.
My chuckle for the day came this morning when a young woman from the hospital where I went for my kidney stones called.
“Mrs. Eigler, we were wondering if you’d like to set up a payment plan for your recent stay?”
“What did you have in mind?” I asked
“$1,150 a month for 18 months.” she casually replied, like it was no big deal.
“If I had that much extra a month we’d have health insurance.” I said.
So, I made my first payment today, a whopping $50. I assured her that I’d get it paid off. She may have retired by the time it finally is, but it’ll get done-eventually.
I guess that’s it for now. I’ve got to get back home. We have a small show on Saturday and have to get things ready. It’s going to be 29 early Saturday morning when we leave the house. I can’t wait.
If Nathan can resurrect my POS I’ll see everyone manana. So please keep your fingers crossed and thanks again for all your well wishes. I read them all; please forgive me for not replying personally.
