That's it. I am canceling the rest of today. I had to get up early to be ready to leave the house at seven a.m. Got to the supermarket, hopped on a handicap cart, it was traveling at the giant speed of two cm a minute. Got off that one, hopped on another. That backup beeper would not shut off. I just couldn't seem to get my act together. Instead of going aisle by aisle, I was all over the place. I had a list, but it certainly didn't contain anything that would require cooking. One tomato, two plums, three oranges, stupid stuff. I did spend more for the food bank than I usually do. That I don't mind. If that was the only thing I bought, the trip alone was worth it. Spike put the few groceries away, then left. I still felt out of sorts. Ate a couple of mini rice cakes. Naw, I didn't want that. So I tried some ground up broken cashew nuts. Nope. Finally I tried my first cup of coffee. That seemed to help. I still felt restless. I ached all over. Noticed I was shuffling my feet when I walked. Took one Vicodin. I hate taking pain pills. Started to feel a little better. Was standing up straighter. Not shuffling. Decided to try and finish my morning sleep. Lost cause. I do have six Klondike bars with dark chocolate covering that were on sale. Maybe that is what I need. Chocolate.

Oh, did I mention my hand? It is hurting like it is going to fall off. I need to have a scab on it to protect it. But it is the scab that is causing all the pain. The scab gets really thicker each day. So I put the cream on it to soften the scab. That releives the pain, but the scab falls off and exposes it. That leaves it open to infection. And round and round I go. Someone find me a happy pill QUICK! There is just no pleasing me today.

Addie, maybe you should get your son to take you in to a clinic?

I am so not impressed. I have a whole bunch of stuff I have to finish for a client by April 18th. I have been screening my calls because I don't want to be interrupted while I am concentrating. My frigging phone has been ringing every half-hour. It goes to the answering machine (and I can hear if someone talks and pick up). I can't unplug it during the day because it might be my client. There is no one there--I'm just getting these robo-dial calls that don't leave a message and #69 is "number not available." Now they have started to do this at 3:30 a.m. Three nights of this and I'm about to cancel having a phone! Tonight I will unplug my phone before I go to bed. I just hope my Dad doesn't try to call me in the middle of the night. And, I am on the DO NOT CALL list and have an unpublished #.

Well, that's a real PITA.

I have all my calls go to my mobile and I have call blocking on at night. It only lets calls through from a list which has family and some friends.

Thank you. I am feeling much better now. I just finished a Klondike Bar. Ice Cream and Dark chocolate. That should cure anything.

CSW, if my son takes me to a clinic, they won't release me. I will be sent right out the back door to Padlock Row in a hurry.

I just went downstairs to scan some client papers. My scanner is no longer installed. Since I didn't do it and no one else uses that computer, I think the most recent update to WinXP uninstalled it. Grrrrr. I'm downloading the most recent installation software from the HP site now.

I don't have time for this nonsense.

I don't have good cell coverage, so I have to have a land line.

Don't know what's wrong, just know that something is not right.
