I am really, really hating HSN.com right now.  Some great markdowns, but every thime I try to put something in my shopping cart it disappears and logs me off.  I really dont’ need to be spending extra money right now, but, this is annoying as hell.  I wrote to them about it, and their form response is totally irrelevant.  Disgusted! 

Going to check out the condoi again tomorrow.  New conract says “as is” and I don’t know if they changed or destroyed anything since I was there last.  Strange request, and I feel I need to check it out  Wish me  luck.

Buzz, Vent & Bargains

I asked the office here for a 30 day notice form (they won’t accept a letter), and they gave me a notice to vacate, twice.  They’re not trying go evict me, at this  point it would be silly, even if I hadn’t paid my rent, which of course I had.  Apparently they don’t know the difference.  Sheesh.  Remember when I applied for a job here?  I see now why I wasn’t their type.

Buzz, Rant & Bargains

I’ve been running around and making calls to get things faxed, notarized and sent to my two lawyers and mortgage broker.  I was asleep when Hubby got home from work, and have to remember to have him sign more papers I need to fax before he goes to work. 

I’m having trouble with the mail carrier from hell.  He/she never tries to deliver packages, just leaves them at our complex office.  They’re not open at a time my husband can go there before or after work (don’t want them to work too hard).  It’s a bit far for me to walk, especially if I have to carry packages back.  I complained to the post office manager, and he told the carrier to pick up packages left in office,and deliver all  future packages to my door.  Spiteful SOB put my mail in someone else’s mailbox, left past packages in office, and delivered my 3 month supply of medicine, which I really need, to someone else’s apartment.  Person was nice enough to bring it to me.  I can’t believe this AH has a job, and I don’t.

Today’s WOOT is quite a bargain, especially if they send you fun colors.  You can’t pick.  If I had a younger daughter, I’d get a smaller size and embellish with fabric markers, ribbons, & bedazzler to use as nightshirts.  A fun idea for a sleepover.

I ordered a pair of surge protectors on Ebay from Buy.com as a Daily Deal.  I’d forgotten about them till I  looked at my summary on Ebay.  Went back into my files and found the tracking number.   They were delivered a week ago.  Unfortunately not to me.  I wrote to FedEx and Buy.com  Buy.com was terrific, and gave me credit rigjht away  Kudos to them on good customer service.  FedEx, on the othert hand………Grrrr.  Basically, without copying alkl the emails here, they told me that the package was indeed delivered, and it’s somewhere in my town and I should look for it.  I will no longer buy from anyone who ships FedEx.  I’m irate, and wish they were here so I coulod hurt them (yeah, all 4’10” of me).  While I’d like to rip them a new one, a tongue lashing (in print) will have to do.

I got this from my friend Patty today. I don’t do religion, but left those parts in for those who do.
 Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, 
Cleveland , Ohio .

To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught 
me. It is the most requested column I’ve ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once  
more:
> 1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
>
> 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
>
> 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
>
> 4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends 
> and parents will. Stay in touch.
>
> 5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
>
> 6. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
>
> 7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
>
> 8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
>
> 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
>
> 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
>
> 11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
>
> 12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
>
> 13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their 
> journey is all about.
>
> 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
>
> 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; 
> God never blinks.
>
> 16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
>
> 17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
>
> 18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
>
> 19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second 
> one is up to you and no one else.
>
> 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take 
> no for an answer.
>
> 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. 
> Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
>
> 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
>
> 23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
>
> 24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
>
> 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
>
> 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In five years, 
> will this matter?’
>
> 27. Always choose life.
>
> 28. Forgive everyone everything.
>
> 29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
>
> 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
>
> 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
>
> 32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
>
> 33. Believe in miracles.
>
> 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you 
> did or didn’t do.
>
> 35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
>
> 36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.
>
> 37. Your children get only one childhood.
>
> 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
>
> 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
>
> 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, 
> we’d grab ours back.
>
> 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
>
> 42. The best is yet to come…
>
> 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
>
> 44. Yield.
>
> 45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.”

It seems the other party in my condo purchase is going to contract Tuesday.  I can’t believe this is really all happening.  It feels like I’m watching someone else’s life.  Butterflies like crazy.

A vent.  I DO NOT recommend http://1saleaday.com/ 1 sale a day.  I believe I origially told you about them when they were giving away a free game, 10/13 which you put througjh as an order.  Never came.  On 10/20 I ordered a set of dvd’s.  They didn’t ship them till I wrote and complained several times, and finally did on the 29th.  Since they were horror movies I’d ordered for Halloween, that wasn’t a big help.  There’s always next year, assuming they sent the right thing.  No matter how many times I ask, they won’t answer about the first order.  Boooo  Hissss

 Ray doesn’t really like me to drink hot coffee, and knows I won’t drink it while holding him.  Guess I shouldn’t complain about love and good advice. 

 I’m not happy about the condo hunting.  My two top picks are gone, and it will be a while before others I like will come down to what I’m willing to pay.  Desi is really the realtor from hell.  When I wrote to her that I wanted to bid on a few condos, she never called me to discuiss price, and disregarded my email because I didn’t tell her how much to bid.  I don’t do this all the time.  I needed advice.  I guess that was too much for her.  They’re gone now.  She called me early last week saying she’d call by the end of the week to make plans to go looking Saturday.  Never heard from her, though she eventually did respond to an email I’d sent her about one property (sold).    How does one gracefully break up with their real estate agent?  I certainly can’t say, “It’s not you, it’s me.”

Worked the polls yesterday.  5 am till 10 pm.  Long day.  The only difficult part was closing with the new machines TPTB in Washington decided we need instead of the great old lever voting machines that hae been reliable since I was a child, and never break down.  I have serious issues with dimwitted people in power.  Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should do something stupid.  In any case, it was nice to be back, since I didn’t work last year.  It was fun seeing he newborns from the year before (visiting parents) now two years old, and realize how they’re aging while we stay the same. 8^)

I have this little ice maker, and love it.  I really didn’t drink water before, but water filtered in my Zero Water fountain and frozen makes it so much better.  Don’t buy it here.  Wait for Target to have it on sale for $100 if you need it.  They have it on a shelf under coffee pots.
