You Ever Have A Day Where You Feel Like A Potato Head?!

         Did you ever have one of those days where it seems like somebody took your brain and body apart and tried to put it back together like Mr. Potato Head?! O_O ...No?!... Hmmmm. Wonder why I'm so special then!
      I woke up to rain.....and pain...and the day just went downhill from there!...Maybe what I need to do is stop answering phones and reading the mail! LOL...I got a phone call about my sleep study. Now, apparently, it's gonna be a 3-day study. And instead of wearing my mask, they had me mistakenly scheduled to use a nose thing! O_O
       'Uhhhh...I don't breathe through my nose well, people. That's why I was given the mask!...And I'm suppose to just do it anyway...for three days?!' O_O ...Somehow the woman I spoke to didn't seem to be aware of exactly how bad my sleep apnea is! The truth is, I was told not to even take a nap without my mask!...Imagine how confident I'm feeling!!!!
      You know how I crochet to calm myself down?!...Well, my sweater blanket was getting a workout yesterday! LOL...

      The last time you saw the sweater blanket, I think I was putting the Autumn Maize color on it...After that came the sunshine yellow...

       Then came the persimmon orange!...

      It's getting much more colorful now! :-) 

       That bright my husband's horror...would be Watermelon Pink Y'all!! :-))

     I'm kinda loving it! :-) At the very least it's distracting me from phones and letters...Oh yeah....Letters! Ugh!...I got two very upsetting letters. One was from the government! *gulp* Apparently I had forgotten to pay my quarterly taxes to the state! YIKES!!!...I totally did too!
     "Sorry nice Mr. Government. O_O  I'm afraid you're dealing with a potato head girl who sometimes doesn't remember where her head is!"...Thankfully all I would have to pay...on the big end...was about 4o or 5o dollars. Leave it to me to be thankful today that I'm not Donald Trump! LOL...Imagine how much I would have owed then!!! O_O
      Anyway, I got that paid 'tout de suite' !!...or as my 'home girls' would have said: "fast, quick and in a hurry!" ^_^ I don't need any problems with the nice Mr. Government!! LOL
       But then there was another letter....*sigh*...This one was really bad!...Remember how back in March we realized that months had gone by and we hadn't received a bill to pay for the thousands of dollars that my insurance company didn't cover for my hospital stay?! I did a post about it --> HERE <--. We were ecstatic!....That'll learn us! Grrrr!
      I got a letter yesterday...One of those "We haven't heard from you in quite a while....and you better pay us NOW or else we're gonna put your potato-headed self in some big trouble!...BIG trouble!!!!" type of letters! O_O ... What??????!!!!!...*inhale*....But we were told that it was paid! O_O
       Well, apparently there was a glitch in the system somewhere...the woman I talked to didn't know where...O_O...and she didn't know who would have told us such a thing as that we no longer owed anything either! O_O She also doesn't know why we never got anther bill or notice about it until now either!...*steam rising from my yanked apart potato head*...So, all of those nice words about the hospital and the insurance company....scratch that! LOL
      There was an invitation for us to go back to paying the amount we were paying before...but I assured her that I do not want to pay anything until they can show me that I do indeed owe this now! I'll be perfectly happy to pay it then!....I don't know what's going on, but there is a definite glitch somewhere!!!...Yes, it could be in my potato head, but I don't think so this time!! LOL
      Focus.....focus.....focus! You're still least until the sleep study gets a hold of you! O_O...and you're still married to the best friend a girl ever had....who has your 30th wedding anniversary plans all wrapped up too, by the way! :-) ...You still have music!...{Where would I be without music?!}...and you still have a lot of rows of color to go on your sweater blanket!...*exhale*...So I'm good! :-) Have a good day, Everybody!

Where would we be without music?

Where would we be without music?
Don't answer. I don't want to know!
The thought of no guitar or back beat,
no humming or tapping of toe!

What 'Umph!' would there be to commercials?
What excitement for games yet to play?!
What missing movie's anticipation
that the  'Dun Dun Dun' would happily say?!

How would new mommies rock their babies,
and calm them to put them to sleep?
Without music the world would be screaming,
but the ocean of silence would be deep.

So, where would we be without music?
In a world with no brain cells to link.
In a big room with nothing to do,
and a bunch of poor folks that don't blink!

    what joyous colour!

  2. Thank you, Kamana! :-)

  3. I am loving all the colour on your sweater blanket.
    So sorry to hear about those letters. I hope that everything gets sorted out quick smart! I'm so glad you told the hospital you wanted proof first. I'm crossing my fingers that you don't owe anything and it was 'their' error.

    1. Thanks, Jo...I'm loving all of the color too! I just finished the red and started the set of colors over again. I don't know how many turns I'm gonna do. Probably until my stash is depleted. ^_^ ...About the letters, I'm sorry too! LOL I'm still waiting to hear back from the hospital. It's money owed to them, so I'm sure I will! ^_^
