So I spent all weekend working on my series bibles, updating them. They were sadly out of date. Anyway, I was trolling through some old e-mails from my editor, looking for information tidbits when suddenly the computer screen lit up with all sorts of flashing lights and warnings.
Naturally, I called for the house hunk. He's in charge of stuff like that. He instructed me to remove my current virus software and gave me a new package to install. Guess what I did all afternoon on Sunday? Watched that little green meter inch across the screen while the software installed and scanned my computer.
So I missed the two chats I was going to drop in on and didn't accomplish much in the different bibles I was working on. No writing, either. Twiddled my thumbs. Sorted through some notes and threw out a bunch of papers. Consolidated a bunch of other paperwork.
Today I have to organize my income tax receipts and paperwork. Later today I have a doctor's appointment. My prescriptions ran out so the pharmacy called the doctor and what do you know? They won't renew until I show up in person so they can check stuff like my blood pressure and weight.
"Ms. Cook? This is Dr. Good Doctor's office. I'm calling about your prescriptions."
"We need to see you before we can refill them. Do you realize that you haven't been here since October???"
"My, time flies when you're busy, doesn't it?"
Ah, well. I'll go in, crawl on the scale, and offer them an arm to squeeze. What fun.
So that's it for today. Fun, fun, fun.
