Himself's snoring makes it through Mack's earplugs. I use them all the time but I still hear him in the hotel room. I use them at home so I don't hear the neighbor's dogs at 7AM

I read the symptoms of depression posted by cave and also googled and other than waking up in the middle of the night the only one I have is lack of concentration, and I blame that on the lack of sleep. Since I'm retired, I don't need to concentrate on anything anyway. Otherwise, I am a very optimistic, happy go lucky individual.

If Shrek stops snoring it wakes me up...I don't snore anymore since I quit smoking. Both of us are happy!

I was about to get ready to go pick up my replacement car key. I got a visual migraine (only a mild headache at the moment). I don't think it's such a good idea to drive when I can't see straight.

I phoned the garage to ask if they are open tomorrow and if they have time to program the key tomorrow. They said yes. They are only open from 09h to 12h on Saturdays. I asked how late I could come today, if the migraine goes away and was told not to. They are closing early. I guess it's hard to heat the garage to a reasonable temperature in which to work with the temps we are having: predicted high for today: -20C (-4F).

I want that danged key.

I don't have the old key. That's the problem. I lost them on 21 December, while taking public transit. I'm on hold right now, waiting to talk to someone at the lost and found of public transit.

I also have to go back to the locksmith. I had new house keys made and they don't work.

First thing after waking up I hear a "BANG", don't think much of it because I'm shaving with an electric razor, and the bathroom fan is on. Then I hear commotion and think "do the neighbors not realize that it is 6:30 am?" Look out the window and there is a Ford Expedition planted firmly in my car's backside, UGH!

We live in a townhome and have a parking lot. Our neighbor's son goes to a special school and his transportation was here to pick him up (it's a transportation company). As he was pulling out, his accelerator got stuck and he rammed my car.

I feel bad for anyone that drives for a living and has an accident. I guess that if his accelerator got stuck that it was better to happen here when there was nobody around than having it happen at the school as he was dropping off kids!

First fender bender and I wasn't even in the car!

I am sitting here nursing The Pirate. They sent him home with the Flu. He was so sick last night he didn't even care that the new season for Dowton Abby was on.

He is so sick. Has the chills really bad. I had the house up to 80 degrees and he was so cold. Couldn't get him bundled up enough, then it was too much. Wanted the fan on him. This is not going to be fun. All I want is patience!
