bundled up, walkabout, snow

So far

Didn't get laundry folded, but did get shirts hung and loads sorted.

Determining over the weekend whether the I in UTI stands for irritation (if it goes away by Monday morning under a siege of lemonade and water -- my doctor has told me lemonade is as effective as cranberry juice, and I lurv lemonade) or infection (in which case I call for an appointment first thing Monday morning, or luck out and get a prescription called in for me). So far coping with lots of sitting. And drinking. And eating enough food to digest the pyridium and let it work its magic.

Last night, work was easy. I was given two short (150 & 8) queues to index, double-key and image-process. Then told which insanely long queue to throw the rest of the evening into. I left with only 898 documents left in that queue, which *almost* tempted me to stay til 1am. Okay, so didn't *strongly* tempt me.

Plan for this morning:

Gonna fold laundry
Gonna print address labels from the Rookettes members database
Gonna run to the post office to drop off postcards
Gonna run to the grocery to buy lemons and any other staples deemed scarce.

Gonna drink a lot of water.

wireless update

Forgot that I was expecting the response to my earthlink account, and I'd only been checking my iglou webmail. Sigh. They can't help me, their procedures are too automated, and set up to protect against piracy. Which means I have to fork out another $25 to re-register the sofware (or, more likely download an un-registered copy and register it, considering their procedures). It wouldn't help to mail them the broken card with serial number showing, since it's all automated, my copy of the software is already locked onto the now-broken card.

Feh.

Gonna go fiddle with the ethernet cable - did I mention that the ethernet connector on my laptop is loose? and get online on the laptop so I can take care of this.

update

Clothes are put away. Loaded Bared Naked Ladies' Stunt. Now to figure out what old stuff to take off the player, and replace it with Stunt.

Eating lunch. Then doing bowling stuff and seeing about re-purchasing wireless driver. Then grocery shopping and picking up cleaning. Then making iced-tea and lemondade.

I know how much sugar to put in the lemonade - a cup does a pitcher nicely - but how much sugar does one put in sweetened ice tea? I'm putting it in the steeping basket with the tea bags, if it matters. I'm making the iced tea in a Mr. Tea maker.

progress

Re-purchased wireless driver license.

Formatted address labels for bowling reminder cards. Need to print more postcards. Need to email Sydielives about lunch, and email LaDonna_Rena about bowling.

After the postcards are put together, it's the grocery and cleaners for me. Gonna see if the doctor can see me today. Not getting any better.
