Yes, it’s Wednesday.

I dislike phone companies. Really, I dislike them a lot. I especially dislike the phone company I use at work. Over the years I’ve had bizarre and horrible things happen with them. Unfortunately they are approximately 50% cheaper than their nearest competitor and since we’re talking about $700 bills a month, that’s a big difference and makes it worth the annoyance factor.

One of my co-workers in another office is getting quotes on a phone system and I sent them over a quote I had from my current phone vendor. The quote was done about six months ago and I haven’t done anything with it, but it’s a good price. So my coworker likes what he sees and contacts the sales person who sent me this official quote to see if he can do another one for the other office as well and maybe we’ll get something going.  The sales person gets on the phone with my coworker and says “well, to be honest I don’t normally do those so for that one I mostly just made up the numbers, it’s probably really wrong”.  Good thing I didn’t sign on the dotted line!!


My beagle woke me up at 2:30 am by shaking her head. Beagles have big ears so when they shake their head vigorously it’s loud. She then started doing this repeatedly for the next three hours! I don’t know if she has an ear infection or a bug crawled in her ear, or just stuffy allergies but oh my goodness didn’t she keep us awake. My husband put some zymox in her ears and I gave her a benadryl so hopefully she’s feeling better. I felt really bad for her.  Our big dog Mili (great dane/black lab) has really sensitive ears and gets infections a lot. Zymox is wonderful for them. Mili has to take allergy pills quite frequently. Dog food can frequently cause ear problems and we just bought a different flavor, not brand, of food so I’m wondering if Jesse the beagle is having problems with it.


I would like to point out that I managed to get up to 1000 calories yesterday and still feel pretty good today! Now I just have to not do anything stupid again for a couple of days and let things heal back up.

If anyone still wants to go to lunch with me next week, where I will drink tepid water and eat mashed potatoes or rice, I was thinking Tuesday or Wednesday would probably be good?
