Aug. 15, 2013 - Bill Collecting, Tummy Sickness, Haircuts & Body Odor
August 15, 2013 - Thursday - It was hot and I had bad dreams last night and I ended up with horrible tummy during the night. I spent half the night up and in the bathroom. Then I hit my head on the headboard cause I was trying to move around in the dark. Gave myself a huge goose egg on the forehead. Dumb and miserable.
Went to the PEF as usual with the Tenney's. When I got there I realized I had forgotten my lunch except for the apple which meant that I was going to have to eat in the cafeteria. Nasty!!! Today is Elder and Sister Tenney's 13th wedding anniversary so the office staff ended up providing us all lunch. It was not all that great either. I am already tired of the food and I have not been here three weeks. I don't know if I can do 80 weeks of this.
I do not love being called upon to play bill collector which has nothing to do with the gospel or the people. No one wants to talk to a bill collector no matter how nice they try to be. It's uncomfortable where I sit. My chair is agonizingly awkward and the day seemed eternal despite the mid-day party break. I ended up falling asleep this afternoon right in my chair. I feel useless.
We came home a bit early this evening as the Tenney's were tired and they are my ride. I had a little nap, started reading a book, gave that up, watched a bit of TV, read my scriptures, and did my journaling. Franco called me to let me know that he had visited Sister Doig who is feeling much better and will be released from hospital tomorrow.
I need a haircut and have had no time or inclination to go and find a stylist who can do what is needed. I am looking rather shaggy and matronly. UGLY! However, my skin is sure nice here. No exzema. It's not dry or rough and I never use lotion. Even on my legs and hand which are usually desperate for moisturizing. It's so weird. I don't know if it's the weather or the change in diet or what, but that part I really like.
I have noticed that despite the heat and close quarters and poverty, people here do not have body order. It's so odd. You would think with all this heat and humidity etc, that it would be worse, but I have not smelt BO even one time. Other scary smells, YES, but not that.
Nowadays, many patients get confused when trying to get medications online because they don't know what is existing. To buy remedies online from a respectable web-site is safe. There are only couple of examples. Nowadays thousands articles were published about http://sildenafil-generic.biz/. Did read some about "sildenafil generic"? The extremely vital aspect you must look for is "generic sildenafil". Sometimes men take more medicines later in life and some have sexual side effects that result in impotence. Some of medicaments fuel sex drive. If you buy any prescription medicaments like Viagra, check with a health care occupational that they are foolproof to take with your other medications. However, with reputable pharmacy you get confidence in knowing that your order is being handled by reputable doctors and that your information is safe.
