5. Good Morning!
I'm already on a double dose of pain killers and muscle relaxants. They're not helping much tonight for some reason. This is the second time this week I've had no sleep.

I'm going to be a real joy at work today.

36. HI MissHoneyChurch!
Yes, I started on a new Muscle Relaxant two weeks ago. It is definitely helping a little bit, but on the really bad days nothing helps.

I'm off to work now, and I didn't get even a single minute of sleep last night. It's not going to be a fun day.
:(

13. I was asleep before 10 myself.

I have a window at the head of my bed. When it's cold I often wakeup with a headache or a sore throat. I find that I've moved 1/2 way down in my bed to escape the cold.

I thought I was coming down with something over the weekend so I've been staying in and sleeping in between my sorting and packing.

23. I am sick since Wednesday evening
I came over me without warning. I hate that. I already had 4 days of doing nothing. It helped a bit but it ain't over yet.

How do you get along with your packing. What did the parasite say to it?

28. I'm shipping almost everything.
With Frodo's cage and cart there isn't room for much else. I'll manage to carry my electronics and the cappuccino maker but everything except for one small piece of luggage will go by united parcel service.
It looks like my trike will be picked up between 10/31 & 11/3.
No one is saying very much about anything. :shrug:

I am back to work but more with the body than with the mind. That fucking cold still has its grip on me :mad:
And I have to meetings tomorrow and one on Wednesday. I believe I will leave early today.

*Cough* I have spoken.

but fortunately I am not working close together with them. I would have to go to their offices - not really my intention to talk to them if not necessary

20. Been up for two hours now. Don't sleep much anymore plus stressing
on what to do now that my car's broken down again.

It's the damn starter. I had a new one put in on Oct. 9th. The mechanic is trying to tell me I have a battery problem. (The lights are on, the radio blasts, the dash lights all work. The car just will not start and when you turn the key it just goes click click click click. That's the damn starter.)

Why are people such assholes? The guy thinks because I'm alone and female that I'm stupid.

24. It could be something as simple as your battery
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 05:02 AM by GoPsUx
Many times your battery will have enough juice to do all that stuff but not enough to actually start your car.
How old is it?( the battery) if it's over 5 years old I would have it tested
On edit..You are not stupid
Replacing your battery is alot cheaper and easier than your starter.
And many automotive supply stores will test them for free

48. Thanks. First thing I've got to do is see if I have enough hill
or slant on my street to try to jump it by popping the clutch, and drive around for a while. If I can get it to start I'll take it to a hill, turn it off, and see if it will start again. Not that that's conclusive but it's something.

I HATE cars older than 1975. I want them to go back to building cars with an engine, carburetor, distributor, plugs, and not too much else. In other words, I want an 50s or 60s General Motors car with room enough to get to stuff. And to not have to have a set of metric tools.

55. I still think it probably is your Battery.
I know two people in the last 2 months that had the same problem.
And it ended up being the battery
so the odds are good :)

26. Oooo.... That irritates me.
I had a starter go once, and the guy tried to sell me on a huge overhaul of the entire electrical system. I ended up going and buying a new starter at an auto supply and putting it in myself. They're pretty easy to replace on older models. :hi:

56. They always try to burn us little old ladies. Talk to us like we're
dead from the neck up.

He already ripped me off on the cost of the starter in the first place. I called around and checked. And then when you deduct the money he got back for the core charge, I really took it in the shorts.

Gotta find a new mechanic.

27. I always mean to go to sleep at a normal hour but then something
like the Tigers game happens and then I remember I wanted to watch the tivo'd episode of "ER" and then, before I know it, it's 1:30 AM. :(

35. Pretty much....I'll catch a few hours of sleep here, then
will be able to sleep in in Columbus tomorrow, so it's ok. It was worth it to get away for a couple of days, even if it was in Vegas.

4. A recalcitrant daughter who doesn't want to do her work
5. Laundry as high as an elephant's eye
6. Hip hop music blaring from said recalicatrant daughter's lair.
7. A brand new hamster who decided to play on his wheel all night long
8. Cats who are inordinately interested in said hamster's exercise habits
9. A jury summons for two weeks from now
10. ...do I really need to continue?
