Oi! Or is it Oy? Whatever it is, I am uttering it. The past couple weeks have been a mishmash of annoyance & confusion &, well, Oi! Or Oy! Or both!!!
Heart-related issues. I'm not sure where this is going, but there's talk of a third surgery : ( As Doris sang, "whatever will be, will be" ... but Oi/Oy! I have another followup with the doctor a couple days before Thanksgiving. I'm assuming that he will discontinue my medication again and we'll see what happens after that.
Tiredness is a major problem. I just don't get it. I'm pretty certain the majority of people in the world can get through their days without needing an afternoon nap for an hour or two.
Last week I had my credit card number stolen : ( I wouldn't have even known it happened if I hadn't looked at my online bank statement to check something one day. I was shocked to see a bunch of pending charges I did not make! I immediately called the bank. They asked me if I knew how someone got hold of my card number. How would I know? I purchase things quite a bit online but have never had any problems like this. The bank issued me a new card, refunded the questionable charges back into my account, & launched an investigation. I then changed my passwords to every password-requiring site I visit. I hope they tell me how this person came to acquire my number. I was told they could not have made charges with the number only. They would've had to have known the expiration date as well as the 3-digit code on the back! Very scary & annoying!
Let's see ... what else. Our mower guy kinda cheated us. One of our toilets has stopped working. A mouse (Ed) made his home in our garage, & his brother & sister-in-law (Ralph & Alice) decided to make their home up the road in our cable box where they chewed through a wire that controls our phone line. This resulted in an extremely loud hum on the line & we couldn't really hear anyone who called us for days. The phone technician shooed Ralph & Alice away & made his repairs. Hopefully the little fur balls won't try to set up housekeeping there again.
On a happier note, Christmas is just two months from today!!!
The temps have been a bit cooler ... sometimes in the 50s during the day & in the 30s at night ... but we're getting a revisiting of bad weather (known to some of you as warm/hot weather) in the coming days. It's actually predicted to be near 80 degrees one day! Ugh! Where's the barf bag? All things considered, we've had a pretty nice autumn. The photo below shows what is probably our favorite tree in the yard. Its autumn color is always so beautiful! Isn't it nice how God could have just given us plain ol' green trees all year round, but instead He makes the leaves have these gorgeous colors for us each fall?
