Friday Roundup

Had another crazy week here.  Two days, Monday and Tuesday, were totally dedicated to taking down the Christmas stuff and putting the regular stuff back.  Lots of work.  Then, On Tuesday, they turned off the power again.  Fortunately it wasn't off long enough for me to lose any food this time.  Only about two hours.

Finished packing away all the Christmas decor.  Here's a few pics of some of the whimsy in my living room.  



On Wednesday I really wanted a day of rest, but had to run to my bank again.  Been having so much trouble with them lately.  I've always paid my credit card early, so on January 2nd I was in shock when I looked online and saw I had a $25 late fee.  Ran to the bank and after an investigation, it turned out to be the banks fault.  The following day the $25 late fee was taken off my account, and all was back to normal until....

...late Tuesday afternoon when I received a call from the bank informing me that I hadn't made a payment.  I informed them that a payment is not due until February 2, but she claimed I hadn't made the January payment, the one they had straightened.  She got pretty nasty with me and at one point accused me of lying when I told her I WAS LOOKING AT MY ACCOUNT AS WE WERE SPEAKING and nothing was overdue.  She very huffily said, "Well, I don't know what you're looking at but I see something different".  That's when I went off on her and hung up.  So, Wednesday was another trip to the bank for me.   

The representative I spoke to informed me that the phones were out, but assured me he would take care of it for me as soon as they came back up and said he would call me. 

Yesterday was weigh in day, and I'm sad to say I was .6 over my goal weight.  Had to pay $15.  First time in two years that I went over my goal.  Darn, darn, darn. Things happen though, and it could have been worse. Will definitely work harder for next week.  This was a real wake-up call for me.  Time to get back to tracking.

Later in the afternoon received a call from the bank representative.  He says they still are claiming that I didn't pay my January bill.  I read him back the last 6 months of payments.  He said he'll make a call on Friday.  They are now looking for TWO payments in February.  Not fair.  That would be 4 payments they got in two months.  Definitely going to continue to fight this.

Speaking of weight loss.  I talked to the pharmacist when I picked up my RX for D3, and discovered I am not hypothyroid, I am hyperthyroid which means I am out of remission.  Although my TSH is not THAT low yet, it was quite a significant drop from .053 to .038.  So that should, by all accounts, mean that losing weight should be easy for me.  Should be.  But, t am one of those rarities that gain weight with a hyperthyroid.  70 pounds in a little over a year, so I am gearing myself up for a battle.  

Today is going to be my day of rest.  Snow due on Sunday so I might run out tomorrow to get some shopping done.  If not, that will be a rest day too.  Starting back to class on Monday.
