    morning good ppl.. how you doing today and now??? son johnny with momma tonight.. hope you two doing good now??? for 3 days my interior door tween garage and kitchen table was broke and not working.. a doorknob fell off and could not totally close the door.. spent days trying to get ahold of handyman or locksmith to call me back and come out and fix for us..yesterday morning finally called a locksmith (locked out) 24/7 number.. actually got a person to answer the phone..long and short this wonderful man showed up yesterday dn in 15 minutes I had a working door again.. I also learned the inner details of just how this locks worked and fit together... not that with my Parkinson's could ever install by myself..lol

    the locksmith a aspergers sufferer.. was a darling.. he was sorry he missed john as he had already left with moms for the night..fellow was music, movie devotee.. my house was a real adventure I was able to share for a little bit.. I was his last service call for the day..

    before I put the two county yellow pages away I am going to be awfully sure I have copied this business's phone number for next time.. of course last night after I had gone to bed with a fixed door, all the other craftsmen called to try to fix my door.. knew that was going to happen but with maybe Katie moight need me I couldn't just take the phone off the hook..mmaybe night will catch up on some sleep???

    Re: Cafe Wednesday April 9th

    Good morning, Café! :)

    Yesterday I went to a shopping center that I go to maybe three times a year. It's a shopping mall that is near where I grew up. I ran into my sister. It was kind of odd, because truly just before I turned and saw her, I was thinking about her. And there she was! She said it was strange, too, because right at that moment she'd been thinking about me. On the same wavelength or what?!

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do today. If it's nice out, a walk would be a good idea.

    Jimk, glad you got the door fixed! I hope today is more relaxing for you!

    Wow, it's already Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday just slipped by so fast. Wishing everyone a Wow! Wednesday! :flowerhearts:

    Morning all.

    Jim, I'm glad to see you this morning. We missed you yesterday! Glad you got your door fixed. Sounds like you had just the right locksmith to come fix it. :) Hope today is a restful one for you.

    Acy, that is a really cool story about running into your sister. Sometimes it happens like that. Hope you have a good day.

    I've got my annual physical with my regular doctor in a little over two hours. He's a good doctor and a lovely person, but I have to say I'm not looking forward to it. He will ask me about "my spirits" and I really don't feel like having that conversation with him. He knows that I've been very depressed as I saw him last fall because I wanted to pursue a possible physiological solution (which didn't pan out). Later tonight, I have a special combined choir rehearsal with my choir and another one at our parish to prepare for Holy Week next week. We are singing together for three of the Masses next week. I am looking forward to singing with them, but I hope I can find a place to sit where I am not boxed in by someone on both sides. I am claustrophobic and lately that is much more easily triggered and usually results in my having a flashback when it is triggered.

    For now, I need to get another cup of coffee and feed the baby her breakfast.

    I am tired. All I want to do is sleep. Not depressed or anything... just tired.

    Tommy Tom is next to me, just snoozing. I will do the same.

    We are off!

    :hug: to all!

    good afternoon coffee forums,

    today's work day was trouble free and smooth. always nice to have days like that. dropped by local pet shop to pick up more bugs for Leto the gecko. 50 superworms (zophobas morio). they are the larval stage of darkling beetles. Leto loves them because they are especially wriggly and get his hunter instinct juices flowing. Big things, also. Worms duly transferred into my feeding container for them, all set to the carrots and oatmeal and bran with enthusiasm. Healthy worms = healthy reptile who eats them.

    hullo coffee forums. just spent a quiet day in today. amazon sent me the wrong thing in the mail and I talked to them on their chat thing to correct the issue. first time that has happened and they were easy to work with the correct the problem. i'm happy about that. sometimes you order something from somewhere online and there is a problem and it's a real hassle to fix but not this time. i am glad of that.

    April 1st, first day of what I consider spring. i'm not actually sure when winter officially ends on the calendar. ---- just checked, I guess calendar official spring start is March 20. I like April 1st better.

    I've finally been to a doctor who prescribed me some medication to sleep... and it's nowhere to be found on the whole city. Fan-fucking-tastic. Guess I'll have to wait.
    Last month, I released a new EP. I think it's hte most important one I've released up to date.

    Did the pharmacy order it? It should be within a day or two depending on where you live.

    good morning everyone and happy good friday. statutory holiday so i have the day off work. no plans for me. just want to hang around apartment and maybe do some reading. i have been trying true-crimes stories genre recently. i like it. it's very different from the fiction novels i am used to reading. Reading Homicide by David Simon now. That is the book that The Wire television series was loosely based on. David Simon, a journalist, spent a year with Baltimore police homicide detectives sort of following them around and watching them work. Very interesting.

    No pharmacy my mother called has it, and they'll only get more after 20 days or so. We'll try again tomorrow on a few more.

    Oh man, 20 days! That would flip alot people off in this city.

    Yeah, well, that's what they told her. And also, I'm wondering what kind of medication I'm going to take, since everyone said I'll have to buy in person, sign papers, and probably even have my picture taken. Must be some really strong thing.
