But, we had to get a perscription filled and we ended up playing this game with WalMart and the company that handles the scripts. All I wanted to do was get home and crash, but noooo, we had to go home, call the company... find out that the insurance company we use changed the script company and we should have gotten a new card and a letter about this in October. We didn't, of course, so we had to call the new company and get all the information. Then, we were told that yes, WalMart did take the plan.
So, we go back to WalMart and give them the information. We wait and wait and wait... for thirty minutes, while I'm trying not to fall asleep, only to be told, "Well, no. WalMart doesn't accept them."
So we go home. Todd walked to Brooks, so I could sleep, but we were fortunate, Brooks would fill the script.
Honestly, whenever I'm sick, the world conspires to make sure I don't get the chance to lie down. This morning we went out and got something to eat. Came home and I was still feeling crappy, so I was going to take a nap... and guess what? The phone didn't work. So, had to bundle up and walk down to a phone booth, where they put me to one of those automated voice things, where they were asking what phone number they could reach me at. And unless I could give them a phone number, they wouldn't go on. I kept saying, "I DON'T HAVE A PHONE NUMBER YOU CAN CALL ME AT!" and they kept saying, "I'm sorry, I don't understand. Please repeat your phone number again..."
So, I called back and kept hitting 0 until I was able to talk to a human being. She said she was sorry, but then said in a snotty voice, "But most people have a friend who's phone number they can leave... or a business."
I'm like, "Well, today is mine and my husband's day off. And it's also 6:00 in the morning, I'm not going to give out my friend's phone numbers... not to mention, how the HELL am I supposed to call them up and let them know this is going on? It's freezing and I'm standing out in a phone booth."
"Oh. Don't you have a cell phone? Most people have a cell phone."
"If I have one goal in my life, it's to be the only person in the world who doesn't own a cell phone. I find them obnoxious and rude. Next?"
"Well, you could have left a family member's phone number."
"Oh, because they're family, it's okay for you to call them at six a.m. about my phone? Again, how am I supposed to alert them I have a problem? Not to mention my folks are in Florida. Want that number?"
She ends up giving us instructions on how to test the line, which involves finding the phone jack to the outside or some such BS... because it might be outside... or maybe it's in the basement... or maybe it's in a closet even! And, maybe we should just unplug our phone for ten minutes because sometimes that resets things.
So, we go home... and guess what? The phone is working. Didn't even have to unplug it, it just was working. I don't get it.
But, I took a short nap... later, when I woke up, I was feeling a little better. So, I did decide to go for a walk. It was warm enough that I could walk locally. I tried not to go too far from home, but I ended up walking five miles. I should do Curves, because I haven't done them since Tuesday, but the way I'm feeling, I'm afraid I'll get winded and pass out if I go. So, I'm hoping I'll feel up to doing that tomorrow.
The walk was pretty good though. I ended up walking on some of the side streets near our place and found out we have some really nice old houses. Huge old houses, that clearly are still one family dwellings. Absolutely beautiful places, but I'd hate to see their heating bills. Someday I have to bring my camera along and take some pictures of these places, cause they're amazing.
But, right now, I'm starting to feel like crap again, so I think I'm going to try to sleep. This cold sucks major ass. It's gone from the head to the chest and back to the head again. I wish it would make up its mind!
