About Me

I was a member since the beginning of DU, but drifted away. During Trump, I decided to come back to the community of like-minded people for support and hope. In my last iteration here, I hit 10,000 posts, but will start again!

Zatarain's mix is really good

As we are on a limited budget, we eat beans and rice sometimes. Usually canned red beans with Tony Chacheres seasoning . Served over rice.

I bought Zatarain's beans and rice mix, and will add smoked turkey sausage, $3.29 a pound, browned in our Foreman grill. The box of Zatarain's was on sale for $2.00.

Sigh. Letter update

First, ty everyone for listening. After three calls to my former hellholes HR dept, and 2 emails, they denied sending anything. 3 people.

Got the gd letter, and it is about changing my COBRA choices during open enrollment. IOW, I DID read the sender right. XXX DHR.

I'M NOT CRAZY. it's not a nasty letter about jury duty/ being sued/ losing my ltd payments. Or some other horrible thing ppl send CLs for.

Relieved, but pissed. Been watching for the mail truck all day for redelivery. Its raining

Certified letter still a mystery.

The sender area read XXX ( 3 letters that usually indicate the county I worked for) and DHR. which i took to mean dept of human resources. Called them again today, and the assistant checked and said she sees no letter from them. I called my lawyer's office to see if they sent me a CL, no. But they were interested in what it was. I'm an beyond stressed and lost about this. I'm hoping it's redelivered tomorrow.

I don't need this shit. I'm worried its time sensitive important information

Missed certified letter today

Came home from spending 600 on car maintenance. Sticky note on door. Except for the one time we weren't home, mail was delivered early, really pissed me off. It appears, if I'm reading the initials right, to be from my former employer's HR dept.

I have no clue. Super anxious. Going to have it redelivered. Called HR to see if someone there can shed light on this.

Freaking me out.

Anybody have an odd, funny, weird bed & breakfast story?

In the 80s, when I was young and pretty apolitical, my bf at the time and I stayed at a B and B in the Deep South. I want to say, SC. the wide was lovely and welcoming, excited to have guests, chatty. The husband was nice, but the house was dedicated to guns, Reagan, and hard-right-type stuff. I was a bit uncomfortable. We weren't married. Anyway, my bf and I got to hear a jocular political diatribe from this older man. I often wonder what would happen now.

I'd probably leave. I was only 20 around the time and "nice". The wife made us Southern Cassarole the next morning.

Maybe moving back to Greensboro

Live in expensive SE NC now. Lived in Gboro for a year about 10 years ago.
Anyone can name stuff they like about it there?

Hoping for an afordable condo.

Is traffic bad now?

Had a cortisone shot for shoulder impingement

Took meloxican Rx. Finally out of pain. Been over a year. Don't feel as anxious. Wondering if not being in pain is helping.

Hope everyone is doing well

Going to Social Security doctor for shoulder

Got a call from nice lady in lawyer's office. On top of mental health, I have shoulder (right) problems. There was a lot of bending and lifting heavy bins at my former job. I had treatment, pt, and Rx nsaids. Now my left shoulder is bad. I'm going to see my orthopedic PA Thursday. This is left shoulder. I'll have an X-ray, and probably referred back to pt.

I'll be telling my lawyer about this appointment. I get so nervous about all of this.

Anybody like tomato sandwiches?

I'm having one for dinner. Toast white break. Duke's mayonnaise salt and tomatoes.

Scary-looking social security mail makes me anxious

I'm breathing.

I guess ( I'll call them tomorrow) my lawyer is appealing my ssdi turndown. Tons of mail came today. Have to fill out, and my helper, again all the forms I did six months ago. Do I have pets , etc? My lawyer is adding on my physical and eye limitations now.

I hate long forms from ss. Too much mail. They sent me dupes, too.
