It has been somewhat crazy around here. Nothing terribly out of the ordinary, but some of this I brought upon myself.
Still dismantling the couch. I had to let my hands heal up a bit before I could start again. And my arms.
I went for bloodwork (which I do every three months) and my veins were most uncooperative. Four jabs - both hands and both arms. They finally found a vein really deep in my left arm. If you can get the needle in and get it to STAY in, the blood virtually gushes in to the tube. But getting to it is the big thing. I even drank lots of water the previous couple of days... So I had achy arms and hands for a couple of days too.
I got a 7 day pass to a local women-only gym - and haven't found the time to even go for FREE. They're pressing me to sign up, which isn't going to happen since I can't even get there once in a week's time.
The scammers have found me. Not sure, but I think entering for the Publisher's Clearing House or voting for a friend's baby on line did it. Suddenly I am beseiged by junk email and some phone number in New Jersey keeps calling me. I listened to their pitch once (they would send me free information on applying for government grants - ALL I have to do is give them my credit card number so they could ship it to me), asked them for all of their information (which I wrote down) then declined their offer. Went on line to check them out. According to them, their address is in Utah. Then why are they calling from New Jersey? Their website doesn't exist. Their physical address exists, but not the suite. I went to Snopes.com and found them there under Scams. Yep. And they don't take no for an answer.
So yesterday, when they began their day of 30 phone calls, I picked up the phone, waited until I heard someone asking for me, then I screamed into the mouthpiece. They didn't call again until evening. Then I blew a whistle into the mouthpiece. I do that every time they call. So far today, they've called three times. I imagine someone's going to get tired of having their ears blasted and they'll quit calling. I always wait until a person speaks before I let 'em have it.
If only I could do that to the Police Benevolent Society or the Fraternal Order of Police or the Highway Patrol people when they call...
