My computer display is really acting up. The lower third of it is useless. Urgh. I guess I’m going to have to let Chief open it up and try replacing a couple of parts. *sigh*
Tonight is “tech rehearsal” for The Wiz. It was originally scheduled for Sunday, but since it is Superbowl Sunday, they moved it to Friday.
Speaking of Superbowl Sunday, GO, SAINTS! (Sorry Carla and Mrs.SoldierSon!) Anyone else notice that after our good Bishop, the Now Archbishop of New Orleans Rev. Gregory Aymond, arrived, the Saints had a fantastic year? First trip to the Superbowl? Chief and I saw him on television at one of the games. Hmmm. Is he using his “pull”? Maybe they’ll move him to Green Bay! 🙂
Speaking of Superbowl Sunday again, we seem to have fallen out of our Superbowl party tradition. Maybe next year.
There seems to be a huge issue with the new digital electric meters they have been installing around here. Electric bills are going up, suddenly. Significantly so. Most people are reporting a 100% increase or more. Oncor says that it is because of the arctic front we’ve had. I don’t think I buy it. I think there is a problem with the new meters or the software. We just had our meter installed and our average daily use has been under the usage we had last billing cycle when it was really cold. grrrr. People have seen bills go from $150 to $325, $300 to $700. How does one budget for that kind of increase?! Unlike most whom I’ve talked to about it, we have gas heat rather than electric, so maybe it won’t be so bad for us. Still, that kind of increase is ridiculous, even if you do have electric heat. Imagine what their bills will be in the summer when it’s 110°!!!!!
Mrs SoldierSon and her sister are looking into baby carriers (slings, etc.) I shared with her what I know and love. Anyone have anything to say about their favorite?
Monday, I have an appointment for root planing at the dentist. It really didn’t go well the last time I tried to have it done. I’ve opted for dental “anesthesia” this time. Imagine my surprise when I found out they use halcion! Many, many years ago, while suffering through some insomnia, I used halcion (long before it was known how crazy people get while using it.) Based on my history, Chief and I discussed things like his hiding the car keys on Sunday night. My previous experience had me doing all kinds of things in my sleep, with no recall whatsoever, so we’ll take the necessary precautions. I wonder if I’ll be able to sleep Monday night after taking halcion and being out of it Sunday night through Monday evening.
