Maybe it’s just for the holidays but Amazon is running a promotion for Prime members. If No Rush Shipping is selected, Amazon will add $1 to the member’s account to be used toward “eligible Kindle Books, MP3 downloads, or the rental or purchase of eligible movies or TV shows from Amazon Instant Video.” I had ordered a few Christmas-related things I didn’t have to have right away so I figured, why not?
One of the packages shipped from the closest-to-me Amazon warehouse. When I checked tracking, here’s what I saw:
Now, why would it go from a place some 50 miles away, if that far, and be sent clear across the state to Nashville? From here to there, it’s more than 150 miles. Makes no sense, whatsoever, to me. In the meantime, I have $3 in my account to be used by March 31, 2015.
Last night was pretty much a bust, sleep-wise. I dozed a bit and dreamed about kittens and children when I did. By 2 a.m., I was getting desperate. I got up and soaked in the tub until I was drowsy, went back to bed and slept until 7:30. Right now, I feel like I’ve been drug through a knot-hole to quote my mother.
The vacuum really needed a good cleaning out. I’m learning new things about my Dyson all the time. When I was cleaning it, I found yet another way to take it apart so I could get to the nasty stuff. I worked on it until it picks up like it did when it was new. I’m not up to moving furniture yet but I vacuumed what I could in the high traffic areas.
Unloading the dishwasher has become a morning job since it requires bending over. I got that done and put in the dirty ones that had accumulated. Living with esophageal reflux takes some getting used to. I wouldn’t have to modify my behavior if I didn’t mind coughing and throwing up but I prefer the quiet life.
Cuz texted and asked me to feed the critters again. I was okay until I got to the sugar babies’ cages and that’s when I started choking, coughing and my nose was running (again, calling on Mother) like a sugar tree. I got done as quickly as I could, grabbed a bag of corn out of the freezer after feeding the Catz and came home.
I used said corn with some cashews and made corn chowder. It was missing something but I ate it anyway. I feel too washed out to try to “fix that dish”.
The pillows under my knees helped last night. For the most part, I stayed on the wedge and didn’t slide down as much. The pillows compacted during the night and by morning, they really didn’t make that much difference. They’re a good stop-gap, though.
A scratchy throat and sleepy eyes have convinced me I need to stop and get ready for bed. Until tomorrow…
