I am in the process of recertification for my apartment. I had to call Social Security for the letter of income. I forgot it is the first day after a holiday. But there was only a 30 minute wait. Not too bad, considering. The last time I contacted SS was to register for my SS check when I became of age for retirement. Almost 13 years ago. I tried to do it all on line and it wouldn't let me in. So I had to do it by phone.

Then I tried to take a nap and my phone just kept ringing and ringing. It seems everyone wants to talk to me today. No nap.

I really should try to eat something. I am not hungry but I need to eat.

So I sit here wondering what to do next.

I just spent a half an hour on the phone doing tech sup for a friend. She posts listings of local cultural events on a website. She couldn't do her listings because "Everything moved to the left and I can't see half of what I type." She thought it was a monitor problem, so she tapped the "auto" button on the monitor - nothing. I had her open FireFox. She described various stuff to me. Eventually I asked her to open her email, ThunderBird. It opened without the problem. Then I had her open Open Office, again, no problem. "Okay, it's a problem with FF, not your computer, and not your monitor." Eventually I figured out that FF wasn't maximized. "Click the square next to the red rectangle with the x." "Oh! That fixed it." She's been using Windows since Win95

Veggin' in the recliner. It's graduation time of year and I've been involved in festivities, potlucks, etc. for the past week. I'm about ready to drop. LOL. One more grad celeb to attend tomorrow, then I plan on sleeping for the next few days.

Hey guys, I didn't write "buying a screen door and a fan FOR the bathroom". So I wasn't walking into an ambush!

We didn't end up going anyway - TB had a little trouble with a blood test so I had to drive him straight home.

I forget what it was but I read an article regarding Swiss yodeling. Now I can do Western yodeling easy. So I googled Swiss yodeling and got a plethora of videos. I watched a few to see what it was that made it so different. Forget it. I will never be able to make my throat do that. Their pitch is much higher than Western yodeling.

Next I googled some special pieces of Mozart and was listening to them. Okay, enough of that. So I googled Abba music and am now downloading it. That should keep me happy for the rest of the day.

Trying to wake up, forgot to set the alarm. Woke up right before it would go off, so I laid there for a minute and then suddenly it was an hour later. Thank Goodness for starving cats.
