Yep, quite the welcome home!

I think I am the only person I know who has been locked in their house AND garage now. Sheesh.

Apartment in Denver, Colorado. Deadbolts that were keyed on both sides on the doors. Shrek had already left for work as it took him 45 minutes by bus to get to work. Took me 10 minutes walking. So, he was already gone, beyond reach, by the time I was ready to leave for work.

Couldn't find my keys and the deadbolts were set. Keys did not exist! I would have called the apartment manager, but...err...ummmm...I WAS the apartment manager and the keys to unlock my apartment were in the manager's office. Memo to self: replace double-keyed deadbolts with levers on the inside.

I ended up calling the owner who came, got the manager's keys and let me out. He was laughing his butt off. I got replacement keys for everything, including having the locks for the store replaced, too. (I was also the assistant manager of the store where I worked).

Found the keys a week later, under the front edge of the couch.

When I lived in a house with double key deadbolts, we took the advice given by the fire department. ALWAYS leave a key in the door, on the inside, when you are in the house.

If he had been a firefighter he probably would have.

I had an apartment that caught fire. The place was completely gutted. The fire started, according to my nosy Portuguese neighbours, half an hour after I left for work. I've been a little freaked out by residential fires ever since.

You folks have such interesting adventures. All mine revolve around the ER. I am jealous! And tired of that dang ER!

Goo morning! I was in a deep sleep at four a.m. All of a sudden I woke up and was ravenous. I got up and opened the fridge door and the first thing I saw was a can of black olives. I opened the can and ate the whole thing. Went right back to sleep.

On Wednesday it was on the news that the FDA was telling doctors to stop prescribing Vicodin is in such strong amounts. They are concerned about the damage to the liver. I notified Winthrop when I went there yesterday that I needed a refill. Winthrop took FDA's word to heart. I understand the lesser strength, but before I was getting a ten day supply. Yesterday I not only got a lesser strength, but a 30 day supply. Yet the directions for taking was the same. Take two tablets three times a day for pain in hip and spine. I will have to call and ask why the increase in the supply. I don't think it was a mistake. The cards are numbered 1 of 6, 2 of 6, etc. And my name is on all six cards. I am totally confused now.

Addy, I think the increase in supply is because the risk of abuse or dependence is less with the lower dose.
