I don't know what Spike would have done after his wife died if he didn't have Teddy to give him a purpose in life. As much as I love that dog, I am also so grateful to him.

A home with a pet tells me that the people who live there are capable of giving love.

That's what I was thinking...

I was starting to get stressed out. For two days (48 hours) I was unable to get a good solid sleep. I was beginning to worry if maybe I had insomnia. Fall asleep for 20 minutes, wake up. Get tired and very sleepy several hours later. Lay down. Wide awake. Or if I did manage to fall asleep, the phone, door knocking, etc. woke me right up before I could get into a deep sleep. Then this morning I could hardly stand up I was so sleepy. But I had to go shopping. I rushed around that store like it was on fire and I was looting the place. We left the house at seven and were home again by 7:45. Yet I managed to get everything I needed and was on my list. As soon as I got in the door, Spike put the groceries away and I was undressed and sound asleep before he left. I woke up at 7:30 tonight just in time to see Jeopardy. Spike was sitting at the computer and Teddy was sound asleep at my feet. I feel so much better.

I feel so much better now. I put my cashew nuts inthe mini FP and had them for supper. I really need to eat something solid later on. They had a pork loin bone in roast on sale. But what I saw was not what I wanted. So I passed on that and got a smoked shoulder instead. That will be for tomorrow.

I am feeling human once again.

Thank you PF. Unless I am allowed to sleep through until I wake up on my own, I am no good to the world. When I had my gastro surgery about 40 years ago, by day six I was exhausted. Someone was waking me everytime I got into a good sleep. You know hospitals are not run for the well being of the patient, but according to the schedule of the staff. Finally one day when my surgeon came in, I started sobbing. I told him I was so exhausted. No one would let me sleep longer than two hours. The next time I fell asleep, I slept for 19 hours straight. Any medications were to be given IV. NO ONE and that meant NO ONE was to wake me up short of a fire in the building. As long as they heard me snoring, they knew I was all right. They even moved out my roommate. From that day forward, I healed much faster. I bless that doctor still to this day.

Send a message via Skype™ to taxlady
Today I have gotten approximately 10 spam to an email address that I have only given to Intuit. I am a QuickBooks® ProAdvisor and I use Intuit's professional tax software for my biz. grrr

I am so annoyed that this company (and other companies) can't treat my email address properly. This gives me more reason to want to retire. Once I can dump QB and the pro tax software, I will be able to dump Windog and just run Linux.

Just got back from the grocery store again. Didn't look at my receipt until I got home the first time and saw that the Miracle Whip did not ring up on sale, (this happens alot at this store). The only good thing is that you get your money back and you get the item for free. I wonder how many people paid full price and didn't notice the mistake.
