Cat makes a huge mess digging in a plant (he is only 5-6 months old), then repeatedly, determinedly, persistently, attacks the broom. Lol. What a PITA! I need a squirt bottle holster.

Oh, and I had to dissect a cat in anatomy yesterday :/ poor kitty.

I can understand that the security guard may have been away from his station, restroom break, unlocking an apartment for a forgetful resident, etc., but no residents around to open the door for the Fedex delivery person??????? There are 300+ apartments here! At that time of day there should have been a few around.

Now I get to wait all day again! GRRRRRRRrrrrrrr!!!!

My son lives in a huge complex too. All pkg delivery ( fed x, USPS, UPS) simply gets delivered to mgmt office. One stop for the delivery guy. You have to go to the office and pick up your pkgs. Don't know how mgmt notifies everyone. I;m pretty sure it is a daily challenge on their part. Maybe they do an speed dial internal dial/ message on your phone.

How nice for the delivery guy, but I'll bet it's a real PITA for the residents as well as management.

I've done that with my phone, not because I was upset with the person on the other end like they do in the movies.

I made it through the stress test today, no problem. Starting to think my problem is not my heart, but something else. I have an appointment on Wednesday. Not happy, going on three weeks of not feeling right.

Trust me. I didn't do it on purpose! I slipped and when I went to catch myself my phone when flying and smashed on the deck. And I do mean SMASHED. The front screen is quite a mess. I'm currently bidding on new phones on eBay. Sigh. This is annoying and upsetting!

Chicken soup. If you're too busy, or don't really feel like making it, ask Shrek to make some. Maybe even chicken and dumplings. You know you can't help but feel better!
