What are you doing today? (besides shopping)

I went to do my pickup from the Amazon locker this morning. I put the code in, the door opened and it was empty. I chatted with customer service. They could not see a delivery. I asked what that meant since I had a confirmation. They said it was lost and gave me a refund.

Wow, what a bummer that you didn't get your item! But glad that you got a refund. And I thought the whole point of those lockers was to cut down on theft!
Right! I get home at 9pm. My packages get delivered between 1pm and 5pm. I thought using a locker was a sure fire way of getting my package without worrying about porch pirates. I was wrong!

Work. Take car to mechanic. Gaze at nails, shake head sadly, wish for a different world... one in which it is always safe to go to the salon...

I'm like a happy kid this morning. I got myself a new ipad. I picked it up at Amazon locker on my way to work. I also got a case and tempered glass screen protector. My old one is from 2012 and I promised it to my niece. She desperately wants an ipad.
I'm due for a new iPad, too. Mine has started running slowly and I have to charge the battery up every night. However, since I just bought a new phone it will have to wait.

Congrats rofl taco! Did you get any work done today?

The new ipad is incredible. I did actually have to work pretty hard. Since I'm the only one in the office, I'm scanning and distributing and assigning work for my whole section. I have to work to keep them all busy. But now I'm playing with my new ipad.
GOOD! As long as you got some play time in.

I ordered an Amazon Fire tablet, and it will be delivered next week. I plan to be completely unproductive the next day.

Just now, I am on a short break during early job. Will have to go back soon.

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Waiting for Census supervisor to get back to me with plan for doing work. In the meantime, produce run and picking up prescription.

Happy July! Today is vacuum the car day and the first day of making all remaining projects (there really are fewer now, even if you can't tell it just by looking, haha!) fit neatly into groupings. These little groupings will wait for me to have a few minutes, a few hours, or a dedicated couple of days to work on them. Meanwhile, I can clean the spaces they have been occupying...

drinking Dimetap cold medicine

It's 90 degrees here (summer).

I woke up freezing the past two nights and started having sniffles yesterday. Sniffles turned into uncontrollable dripping/runny nose. Took Dimetap 8am...12pm....more coming at 4pm....

My face is hot right now (possible fever?)....Did I get COVID after returning from Costco on Tuesday?

I've had weird chills the past two days too. IT's not normal. I haven't changed the temperature indoors and it's hot as heck outside. Problem is that COVID shows up usually two days after infection....I had chills same day after coming back from Costco.......haven't gone out at all before that.

eta correction: I went to cCOstco Monday not Tuesday.

I will be picking up a Freecycle oregano plant after work.

praying for you. let us know how you are doing.

Thanks. I've felt much better since the 4PM Dimetap. But, oddly, I have this weird thing going on with my feet. They seem HOT!

This is so bizarre! Like the fever from my face's skin went into my feet and feet are heating up!
If this continues and gets weird, I am going for a COVID test.

eta: and the "hot feet" may be "tingling" too (which I know is one type of COVID symptom)...it's just very hard to describe. My feet feel weird. Like they are hot and there is some weird nerve tingling going into them....

I hope its not the Covid but please don't let it go on to long. I am one of the old people and know it would go hard for me if I should get it. Still praying.

I just read online that tingling feet and hands are hard to diagnose sometimes, as they can be symptoms of so many things. One such thing is even anxiety. grinning smiley

Maybe my own anxiety is giving me tingling feet! Maybe it's your praying, but I'm feeling better and better. The tingling went away and only just now came back a few minutes ago. Now, it's gone again.

Age is a factor for COVID outcomes, but not always. A surprising number of "younger' people have severe symptoms and many older folks are asymptomatic. Very, very odd! But, I hear ya on the age factor and risks. Best to not contract it. But, I shall pray for you as well in all circumstances. There are a number of people on this forum I pray for and I will add you to that list. Thanks, grannysarms, for all your kindness!

*just now while typing, the tingling is back in the feet...lol....so very, very weird!*
Long before covid, my dad had tingling/prickling/something? in the feet. I have forgotten what the issue was, but...


Anyway, please take care of you!!!!! smiling smiley

I picked up the oregano plant. It's huge. I have to repot it and place it outside. I can't wait to harvest it!

Work. Find out it is only sprained (don't ask). Get splint,Naproxin, and very relaxed. Aaaaahhhhhhhh......

I'm asking...what did you sprain?

"There's so much trouble in this world; surrounded by miracles" - Citizen Cope
Wrist. I feel it all the way from fingertips to elbows and sometimes in the other direction, but they assure me that in due time all will be well. I had to know because I work with my hands every day and have upcoming hands-on merch & other gigs. So. Bones are still strong, and I will not hurt myself or worsen an injury by working as planned. And, by working as planned I will not incur any raised eyebrows or bad marks in my shopper/mercher record. Win win. But.. I am a sore winner... it will take a few days for the worst of the pain to go away...

Feverish symptoms gone. No hot face, nor hot feet. Tingling in feet gone. Had it maybe for two minutes today, but otherwise gone. Who knows what it was. Maybe anxiety.

Coughing a lot. Feel very sensitive to cold air (AC). Get cold very easily. Otherwise, I feel better than yesterday. smiling smiley
Prayers up for your healing, SEL. I know firsthand how painful sprains can be.

Working on my son's tax return. We deliberately put it on hold because he is going to owe $$$ so now the chickens have come home to roost . . .
Cooking and freezing entrees. Made Baseball Chicken yesterday, chilled that and will freeze 4 individual servings today. Today making slow cooker pot roast with Shiitake mushroom gravy. Will have some tonight with mashed potatoes and steamed fresh carrots. The rest will be chilled and then packed for freezing tomorrow.
If I am ambitious I will use fresh blueberries (GREAT sale at Aldi) to make a batch of blueberry crisp with oatmeal, to use for some breakfast variety. I will experiment with freezing some of that as well.

Ordering a supply of disposable latex gloves to use as I return to parking assignments that will require cash handling. All of my cash payments will be made with fresh from the ATM, crisp, currency. Any change that I get will be "sequestered" long enough to decontaminate it before I ever touch it without gloves. Where cash is not accepted, gloves will be used to make cc payment, and to wipe clean my cc before I remove my gloves. I have on hand a good supply of washable (15 times) fabric masks.

NONE of my parking shops will involve having a valet park my vehicle in the near future!

My department treated us all to lunch at a nearby restaurant (delivery). One employee tried to order a family platter that feeds 6-8 people. Luckily, it didn't go through.

I really hate when people try to take advantage.
