Had a fever yesterday.............

never took my temperature, but I was hot & a blithering idiot. I was mumbling things about my nephew going to India (he's not), couldn't remember anything. I was going in and out of sleep in a chair. Crawled into bed with the clothes I wore all day, went from freezing to sweating, had a dry hacking cough.

Today I'm tired, no fever, still have a cough, and have a hell of a lot to do for tomorrow. Why can't my body realize what needs to be accomplished?

I just baked 3 loaves of pumpkin chocolate quick breads and 5 rum pound cakes.....Ask me anything

All were from scratch. I used 16 eggs, 15 cups of sugar, 3 lbs. of butter, 12 cups of flour and probably about 2 cups of rum (the most important ingredient.

I have 3 brothers and they each for Christmas get one pumpkin/chocolate bread and a pound cake. One pound cake stays at my house and a good friend gets the last pound cake along with a banana bread I made her yesterday. My friend's is a late Hanukkah gift.

F**k whoever is f***ing with the ACA website.........

I logged in and registered the first week the website was up. I don't know what my income will be for 2014 (as I was not working) and estimated it at $9000 per year. Since PA did not expand Medicaid I was not eligible for any subsidies and my insurance cost would be about $400-500 per month.

Since then I got a job and have been wanting to amend my ACA app showing my projected 2014 income. The only way to do this is to "report a life change". However that capability was not available until November 15. But November 15 came and went and it was supposed to be available in December. I went online December 1, and found it was still not available.

20 minutes ago I went to the site and find that my application does not exist. I tried to log in and found that my ID and password don't exist. I tried to register again and the site freezes.
