They are pile driving again today... I'd guess I'm about 2 or 3 days away from it not bothering me at all. I'm working hard at it. It's rhythmic and loud and vibrating but not fast enough to be any fun. It's going on until April so it behooves me to work hard on blanking it out.

My CPA wants a copy of the car bill of sale and the closing statement on the house refinance. Digging them both out turned out to be a bit of an adventure. I finally found the former in the car. But, not before I cleaned out yet another drawer of the desk. I still have about 75% of that left to do before it's ready to get rid of. The house papers were a bit easier to get my hands on. But, all the papers were legal size or longer and my little letter size scanner didn't like it one bit. I tried scanning and piecing together but I could tell that was going to be an all day operation so I just mailed him the originals. There are about two dozen ways that can come back and bite me in the ass. I hope it doesn't.

My Advair inhaler costs me $40 a month. Once they decide if this is the right dosage, I'll be able to get 3 months at a time for $80. But, Murphy says if I order up 3 months now, they will change it for sure. So I'm month to month. On the up side, GlaxoSmithKline offers up a $10 coupon that you can get once a month. It's for the lower dose one so I sent them an email last night asking for a coupon for the dose I use. They said the one was good for all. So I printed everything out and will take it with me on Monday when I go in for my ultra sound (the pharmacy is in the same place) and pick up next month's inhaler.

Everyone's all over the Pininterest web service. I keep looking into it and realize that I honestly have no interest. My RSS feeds and G+ give me enough stuff to look at, read, follow, keep up with. But this morning [livejournal.com profile] seattlejo offered up an invitation and I couldn't remember why I wasn't interested (clearly I do not have enough to do) so I tried again. This time I remembered specifics. You can only use it if you link to your Facebook account - NFW - or twitter. I could link via Twitter but I don't like the idea.

But, then I remembered the showstopper. The username of susandennis is taken! Not acceptable. There are a whole lotta susandennis's out there but rarely do they beat me out of a website. In fact, I can't remember the last time it happened. I'll bet one of them is just shocked that they got to use the username of susandennis. Congrats, whichever one you are!

I have one computer that I kind of use as a poor man's server. It does my eye-fi uploads, and has the external drives attached, and does other stuff that I don't need to touch often. While it's working, I run a screensaver of photos I collect from here and there. The monitor faces the living room so it's like having a picture frame with constantly changing pictures. When I find a picture somewhere that I like, I add it to the mix. The other day, I added a couple of shots of the stained glass window that [livejournal.com profile] earthmother45 is making for me.

This morning when I first walked into the living room, one of them was in the frame. It so makes me smile.

When the living room make over is done, by the way, that monitor as well as the other two will be mounted on that wall with the other pictures around it.

I'm waiting on a work thing and need to tidy up here and there since the housecleaner comes tomorrow. I really dread her cleaning days but love the aftermath. Sigh.

And there will be swimming today.

I am grateful for health insurance but I am also annoyed that I cannot refill one of my prescriptions - the only one I have to get in the car a physically go get (and pay parking) - when I want to. I have to be there Monday anyway but no, the insurance won't pay until Wednesday. What a PIA.

I just watched the beginning of today's Ellen's show and now I have 'shop JC Penney's' on my weekend todo list. Not sure what I need there but I am sure there is something. I had to look up to see where there is a store. Found it. Easy after-swim stop on Saturday. Hope it's horribly crowded with others who are grateful for their stance.

When I go to JC Penney's this Saturday, it's likely I will not even look at clothes. I'll look at bags and sheets and other stuff... I'm just not a clothes shopper. I wear the same thing every day. Knit pants and knit tops. In winter I wear long sleeve tops and in summer, short sleeve tops. Same pants all year round.

I buy cheap. There are a couple of websites for cheap fat clothes and I generally go there when I need to replenish. When I replenish, it's more of the same.

But, once in a while - sometimes even for brunch - I like to wear something else. My supply of 'something else' is fairly slim these days. Goodwill got most of it. And I never replaced (see paragraph one above). Every once in a while I troll around fat girl websites to see if there is something between trailer park chic and $400 tops for the really really really rich fat girl. I never find anything.

I don't even get a whole lot of catalogs in the snail mail any more and usually I just toss the ones I get. BUT... tonight I got one I'd never seen before and I figured I'd bring it up and give it the once over.

OMG. Apparently http://www.softsurroundings.com was not born this morning but I'll be darned if I ever heard of it. They have beautiful things. 75% of the styles, I'd wear in a heartbeat. It's expensive stuff but it's $100 expensive that looks like the $400 stuff. And their sizes go from super model to large ass. And exchanges (for a different size or something) are free.

I just ordered one nice looking, wear-to-brunch/wear-to-concert outfit. I hope it fits and is nice but not perfectly wonderful because I do not want to be buying a bunch of clothes. I don't need them and don't want to clear out a closet for new clothes.... Guess we'll see!
