Friday 2/3/2012

So, out of the blue, the tenant that was going into the hospital for 6 weeks as of yesterday calls me - yesterday of course.  What's up, dude? You in the hospital yet?, having had already resigned myself to the fact that I would not see a penny of rent from that room for 6 weeks - at least.

He says he is coming over in about an hour to give me some money.  That's basically the end of the story without going into too much detail, he showed up, handed me X amount of money, I decided to give him a break - the amount he paid versus what is actually owed - and left it at that.  I'll take something over nothing is all I am saying.

A sigh of relief.  I didn't want to have to dig into the savings account.  I have that safe driver award coming, but I won't see that for another 7 days when I get paid again.

Took the computer to the Fed Ex hub yesterday. Got it there in time - it will be at the repair facility today.  Allegedly, they are putting a "rush" on it to get it fixed as soon as it shows up in their doorway..........it would be nice to get it back in, ohhh, say a week's time instead of sitting there for Lord only knows how long........

Eye infection not getting any better, despite putting the antibiotic drops in there every day, 3 times per day, as instructed by the doctor.  It's blood red in the morning, clears up by the afternoon, gets a bit red by nightfall and then, the next morning, same thing all over again.  Plus, it is INCREDIBLY itchy. Hard to keep my fingers off of it.

The news is mostly full of garbage.  I am sick of seeing all the junk being hurled around about the Presidential candidates.  I haven't made up my mind, yet, who I would want to see in the Oval office, mostly because the top 2 candidates do not appeal to me, at all.  Gingrich is just another career politician and Romney has certain elements about him that I don't like.  Apparently Santorum has no chance and Ron Paul definitely has no chance, that man will never be the President.  Whatever the case, whoever ends up winning the nomination for the GOP, I will vote for that person in the November elections over Obama regardless.

Well, work day approaches, but it's Friday.

G'day.
