What gave your day a "thump" today?
« on: December 26, 2009, 12:38:32 pm »
We have a "bump" up thread.  But some days, well . . . something takes ya in the other direction.   :(

Found out on-line that a former BF is now married for the third time.  I met him between first and second.  He was "it" for me.  Guess I should be thankful that there was no "walk down the isle", but . . . .  Some years ago he moved 1,200 miles away.  If nothing else I'm curious -- what he looks like, what he's doing, etc.

    Mine thump was finding the perfect cooktop only to find out it has been discontinued. Yeah, yeah, I know...pitiful getting excited about a cooktop, especially when I cook out of necessity not love. Oh, well.  :)

    I can understand that.  Over the past few years I replaced all my major kitchen appliances.  I've been in this condo for 24 years.  The original harvest gold Kenmore appliances just did not die.  I finally replaced them with WHITE.  Aaaaah.  Started with the fridge with freezer drawer on the bottom.  Man, I love that fridge and freezer.  LOVE IT.  Got a more expensive stove/oven that I am not using so much.  Oh, well.


    Betsy, hope you are feeling better reeeeal soon.  Colds and the like can make ya just miserable.  NO fun.

    Oh, Betsy, so sorry. Let's hope it's a short spell.

    Jeff's quilt is beautiful, btw. Many years ago my mother had quilting bees where our entire living room was taken up with a large quilt frame and all of her friends sat around it quilting. I still have some of her quilts, but none are as creative as yours. You are really talented...and patient.  :)

    Thanks!  It's always a little thump to send a quilt away, but then I get a bump when the client likes it!  And it doesn't take patience to do something you love.

    Sorry to read the other thumps!  It's great we have KB to share these things on!

    Sorry you are puny Betsy.
    My thump is my DH called me yesterday, he was feeling bad, sinus, and unable to sleep.  OK, he went to Dallas feeling yucky but ok.  Called me this morning and after $950 US DOLLARS at the emergency room and $200 of meds he is feeling better.  Wouldn't go to the doctor here, didn't want to pay the $18.00.   ::)  My hospital stay a couple of years ago, for 5 days didn't cost that much!

    Ah a Thump Thread - I love it.

    I've been dizzy for the last few days. Last winter I had some inner ear crap for months. I hope that problem is not coming back!

    Sitting at the computer and surfing or writing is fine. Reading is ok too!

    So sending you all a dizzy hello from the upper Midwest!

    I'm with you Betsy. I hate colds. I woke up yesterday with one. Went to physical therapy for my neck Thursday and must have pulled something. Instead of feeling better I feel worse. So much with physical therapy. I do feel better venting thought. ;D

    Sounds like more of a "bump" than a "thump"?  :-\

    Jenna, I know 'bout that inner ear imbalance, dizzy stuff.  For years it would hit me a couple times per year.  Usually when I'd wake up in the morning.  I knew I was dizzy before I even opened my eyes.  After "hugging the pot" for a while and a couple hours sleep, I was fine.  So that meant a day off work.  ONE time it came on at work.  I was very suddenly dizzy.  Could not get over it.  Kept running for the bathroom.  Tried to sleep it off in a vacant office with a couch.  Couldn't sleep.  So work eventually sent me to the hospital via ambulance from downtown Chicago!  As usual, it was just the temporary inner ear thing.  But now hasn't happened in  years (8?).

    Oh - I hope this inner ear thing doesn't last as long as it did last year. It doesn't sound as bad as yours but most days I feel like I am walking on a slanted ship.

    That's ok Sandpiper!  I was going to say the same thing but you beat me to it - sounded like a bump instead of a thump to me  :D, but then again he's a viking AND a Texan - so there you go  :D >:( ;D ::)

    I feel a thump coming on.  I pre-ordered Glee DVDs a long time ago from Amazon.  I've been anxiously waiting for release date which is tomorrow.  So far . . . no "your order has shipped" e-mail from Amazon.  I doubt I'll have it tomorrow.  >:(  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  Oh yeah -- I have Amazon Prime.

    Accidentally deleted a book while trying to open it. All it takes is a slight wiggle to the left while pushing the 5-way. (Grrr Boo Hiss) Lost 70+ notes and highlights because the Kindle does not ask a separate confirmation question before deleting books bought from Amazon and Amazon deletes the Annotations file at the same time it deletes the book. I have Annotations Backup disabled as I usually have WN off, I live in a 1X area, and I do not really want my notes saved at Amazon. It took over two hours to recreate from the My Clippings file since multiple notes on a page take a long time to save. I also wrote a letter to the Kindle Feedback address with suggestions for improvements such as asking before delete if Annotations backup is disabled.

    mlewis78 - hope you feel better soon. I remembered this thread but it took a while to find it as I could not remember it had "thump" in its name.

    Some idiot almost hit me at an intersection.  I was already in the center  of the intersection and turning and he came gunning for my passenger door...........  and a cop was standing about 50 yards away with somebody else pulled over.  You would think people would be extra careful.....  but may have been rubbernecking while driving through the intersection.

    g books bought from Amazon and Amazon deletes the Annotations file at the same time it deletes the book. I have Annotations Backup disabled as I usually have WN off, I live in a 1X area, and I do not really want my notes saved at Amazon.

    Annalog, that's a shame!  Good suggestion on your feedback to Amazon!  I always suggest to people if they do a lot of notes on their Kindles that they back up the folder with the notes (documents on Kindle 2?  that's what it is on K1) periodically.  You can do it by connecting to the computer with USB, and then dragging the folder over.

    Dana, glad you're feeling better and ml, hope you're feeling better soon!

    Got no thumps yet....but it's early here in CA....
