Just a few tidbits for the day.....
I took another day off. I still didn't feel up to snuff. In fact, I think this illness has just been a continuation of what I had New Year's Eve. I take a day off and then bite the bullet and force myself through the week. I've been struggling with this for a month. I bit the bullet today and called in. I don't think my supervisor was thrilled, to say the least; a rather chilly response but I haven't beat this thing completely and won't if I don't get the rest I need. I've spent almost two days sleeping, which is what I needed.
I did miss the big celebration for the Steelers. I watched it on tv. What an amazing gathering. They had estimated yesterday 40,000. Take that times 10....400,000 in the Golden Triangle which was wall-to-wall people. The downtown area is not exceptionally large for a City this size. I'm glad I watched it on the tube. The crowd was totally well behaved. A peaceful, jubilant celebration. Made me proud of "Pittsburghers".
So, now it's time to take down my Steeler things and redo my sidebar for Valentine's Day...enough is enough. Thanks heavens I have my file manager and some things in it I can use.
I put a hold on Megan's ATM card this afternoon. LOL...I couldn't let her know. She called tonight and said the machine ate her card. YEAH...she has her purse, phone and did have her card back. There is a branch of the bank on campus. She is going tomorrow to get a new card issued. Penny, you are exactly right. The person I spoke with today advised to put a hold on it and have Megan get a new card issued. It's very possible the card could be photocopied and used to order things by phone or online. At least, everything was returned. Megan is super lucky that an honest person picked up her purse. This was Saturday night with a mega crowd of mostly young people celebrating the pre-Superbowl.
I am not so patiently waiting for my computer part to arrive. A mystery tonight is that I don't have my DSL hooked up to this old computer because the jack was too big. My DSL box is shut off. When I signed on...guess what...I connected via broadband....don't know how this could occurred but I'm not complaining.
Oh well, tomorrow is trash day so I have to get the last bag ready for Joey to take out. He cleaned the family room today for me. Looks great. He filled up a couple of trash bags. Amazing how fast clutter can build up. Hugs to you, Joe!!!!
Take care all....thanks for visiting!
