I have to play Yanni to calm my dog while it's thundering. It's either that or reggae, and we listened to that the last time. I tried some classic rock and he was not having it, lol. Oh well...

    Yanni! :) My poodle will listen to anything but my dachshund needs Abba or the Great Courses in order to calm down. Aren't dogs fun? :)

I didn't think what would happen if I burned my finger when I started using my fingerprint for various apps on my phone...

    That is one reason why DH put in 6 of my finger prints (3 on each side)...just in case. LOL

A heating pipe just took out our homeschool library. Thank goodness I didn't keep the actual curriculum in that spot! Hopefully the adjuster will come today. They sent someone to assess the water damage yesterday, and he ripped out half of the carpet and put some noisy fans down here. Not much school getting done in this room!

    The good news is that they will cover $1600 for books, the bad news is I have to lay out the money and wait to be reimbursed. Thankfully they are sending a check immediately for the carpet that is more than it will cost to replace, so I may get a new couch. They are also covering restoration of nesting tables that my dad bought in Japan in the 30s. Very happy about that because they have a lot of sentimental value to me. Overall I'm very happy with our insurance company.☺

The exterminator is here to handle a yellowjacket nest by our front door. After spraying he ran away like he was being chased by the devil himself. I am not going out there!!

    Nice to know I don't handle it any worse than the professionals. :)

    Yellow jackets are nasty. He was smart to run!

    Poor guy had a rip that he didn't see in his bee suit and got stung 4 times. I'm still not going out there!

Two Fedex fails from 2 different companies. Toys R Us for the church giving tree and Amazon for boots that I wanted to wear today.

    I just read an article that specifically mentioned Fedex trucks in NJ waiting for days to be unloaded. I guess that's where the toy is. :-(

    I think every company seems to be having trouble this year--not sure why. Kinda scary though as I order online....

    FedEx is without a doubt my least reliable and the UPS driver drives too fast. USPS is the best overall though UPS is faster if you're willing to pay like, double the price!

Ugh!! I have never been this stuffed up in my life! I just spent the last 40 minutes in a steamy shower and the effects only lasted for 10 minutes after I got out. :-(

Someone just used my debit card online at Nordstroms. I'm getting a little tired of this. This card is only 3 months old and I haven't used it online in that time, only locally.

    Sounds like you might have a local card scammer. DH had that happen -- where someone at a grocery store was taking card #s/PINs during transactions. *hugs* Hope the bank / law enforcement can track down an offender so it stops!

My in-laws are watching a horribly sappy romance on TV. I can hardly bear to listen to it! Make it stop, please!!
