The Week

I've been extremely tired this past week. Don't know why. Usually when I start the week tired, I stay tired all week. It's not until my days off that I can catch up on my sleep, which I seem to need a LOT. Anyway, I've been dealing with the puppy, and doing something for a friend, and other general stuff. Got a lot of drugs from the VA Hospital as a result of my last appointment. Three types of pain medication! Two in pill form, and some liniment! Didn't know they still made liniment! I'm pretty sure it's just a liquid form of Ben Gay. Smells the same. They sent me four bottles of acetaminophen (aka Tylenol), and two bottles of etodolac (an anti-inflammatory)! That's a lot of pain meds! I still need to go back to the VA and have some X-rays and tests. Until I can get down there and get a blood test I won't be able to find out what's making me so tired. But when I have time to go, I'm usually too tired. It sucks.

Got my Economic Stimulus Payment (ESP). The only frivolous thing I bought was a DVR (digital video recorder). I want to transfer my "vacation" videos to DVD so that I can upload them to the web. Of course I'll post here when I do that. I went to London twice. One of the trips included a side trip to Stonehenge. That was freaky!! There was a guy there with two metal rods shaped like the letter L. I don't know what kind of metal. He let me hold them and walk around Stonehenge. I held them loosely by the short ends, with the long ends facing forward, and there were four places where the rods would move by themselves. It was a very strange feeling! I have that on tape and it's the one I want to transfer and upload first.

The rest of my ESP went to pay bills. Dammit. I really want to get an HDTV. It doesn't have to be a big, expensive one. Since Wal-Mart cut out their layaway department it's hard for me to buy a "big-ticket" item. I'm going to check with Sears to see if they have layaway. I could go to Aarons, but then I would end up paying $1,000 for a $600 TV.

Okay, so.... I wasn't planning to write so much. I only wanted to explain why I hadn't posted for awhile! Now I'm going to go to bed.
