It's a wispy morning.
Well, thought I'd tell you what happened yesterday. I drove over to the clinic, was early so I wandered about the mall for a while, perused the pet shop, waited in line for ten minutes (by this time my sciatica leg was going numb), only to be told that my appointment is on Monday. What? I told the girl that I wrote it down as I was told and the person even said the word Friday and I repeated it back to her...and then she even called me back to change the time from 1:20 to 1:50pm a few minutes later. This young girl checked on the computer to find out if it was a service they use or in-house. I could tell she fully expected it to be the service--but a flicker of surprise and then resignation flashed across her face. There was an apparently involuntary minuscule head-nod and eye-swing to her right as she said, "I know who it was" she said evenly--hoping I would think she meant the service. I did not look over to find the culprit. This nice young girl was determined to be professional and I didn't want to let on that her body had betrayed her. She apologized profusely. I have to do this all over again on Monday.
Not for just a blood pressure check, either.
I saw they have me down for a full physical.
It was so hot and sticky!
So glad the Gallant has AC!!
And so glad I will still have the car on Monday.
No modem arrived on the 3rd or 4th from the new internet service.
I tried to call them on the 4th (when the girl had told me I'd be hooked up). Spent a long time on hold to finally get a human being. She told me I had to talk to a different department and transferred me...to be on hold again for a long time. I finally got a mechanical voice and was following directions and pushing buttons...but when he told me to enter the zip code of my work order (where did she send me?) I entered my zip code and was told it was not a valid number. Three times I entered my zip code...and then he politely said he didn't understand and told me good-bye.
I still have no modem.
Still using my regular internet service.
I will have to do phone battle with them again soon. (Dagan and Leah won't be back for over a week so Dagan can't hook it up anyways--but I want the modem here by the time he comes.) I only have 30 days to reject their service or I'm on a one year contract--so I don't think my 30 days should start until I have the modem and have it hooked up. *sigh* Always something, right?
Anyways, I got out black pens and white pens--a couple I hadn't used before and found they behaved quite erratically--LOL! Added some 3D dots here and there...and called it a day on the Wild Winds workshop.
She has not once gone up on the new chair since it arrived. She jumped up a couple times, stood there a moment, and jumped off. Since Karma never uses it, I used it to lay down my old heating pad and one of those grain filled bags you heat in the microwave (feels good on my lower back when it's cranky). Guess who was up there for the very first time--lol!
If I leave them there, she goes up there to snooze once in a while.
I find this highly amusing.
Maybe once the red chair cover arrives she'll accept the new chair. You know, since she prefers the lumpiness of the heating pad with the cord underneath it to the chair surface--maybe she'll like it better when it's covered? Who knows. Oh, and the seat is really too small to hold her cat bed without it looking like the whole thing would fall off if she got comfortable. (You know what a sprawler she is.)
Notice anything new? One thing came from Amazon...
...a skinny red wastebasket.
I wanted something where I can toss all the used-wet-messy paper towels and baby wipes because I want to save most of them for future mixed media art projects. :)
Speaking of baby wipes (and gelatos)...I started another 21 Secrets workshop called "Unearthing". Has to do with dreams...preferably your more magical, wonderful, pleasant ones. I'll fill you in as I work on the collage part.
I'm soooo far behind online...like a whole week! I hope to catch up this weekend. Seems like I am always catching up on weekends these days. I may have to read and not take the time to comment sometimes on blogs--sorry. Limited good time--certainly not disinterest. :) :) When I am doing more art and other things I just have less computer time. Just the way it goes, right?
As my Amazon stuff for this month comes I'll show you what I ordered. Yup--ordered the red chair cover. I pray it fits or can be adapted somehow. This is a really small chair. I may have to pin it or tack it on--LOL! I also ordered something special on sale (to me, anyways) from Cheap Joe's Art Supply!
Anyways, have a super weekend!
Hug somebody--virtually or in the flesh--LOL!
