    Currently stuck in the house. The raging blizzard (we are for real under a blizzard warning) has a 5foot drift in front of our door. We can get out the back for into the fenced in yard, but the gates are drifted shut... we are about to try and break out though because the drift has now blocked the furnace vent.

    I'm stuck inside, too. 30 degrees and a sheet of ice out there. I have no choice but to go out in 2-1/2 hours. I have a mandatory meeting I have to attend, and at the same time I take my trash out. I'm on the top floor so I only go down the 15 stairs as few times as possible. I have trouble seeing going down stairs.

    Right now, I've just finished my food prep for the week's lunches and done the dishes and listening to music on Spotify from Random Encounters. Not sure if any of you are familiar with them. They do parodies and musicals of video games like Pokemon Go, Undertale, Mario Maker, Don't Starve, Five Nights at Freddy's, etc. They're hilarious. They're on YouTube and have albums released on Spotify and iTunes.

    I'm not allowed to have paid stuff here like Netflix and Hulu, so I've had to find free online entertainment. Tubi TV is very similar to Netflix but free, you just have to put up with commercials. I've also been watching a LOT of YouTube. Random Encounters, SparrowRayne (who used to be with Random Encounters), JackSepticEye, and Markiplier are my favorites.

    Talking to my editor. She says my article was hit! She offered me unlimited terms. She is talking about putting together a collection once I've submitted enough stories. I have found my niche.

    That's great, Cindy!

    I'm making dinner (pork chops), watching YouTube, and perusing the interwebs. Been researching worker's comp and how to go about filing a claim. Some of you may have seen my post on FB this morning. To make a long story short, the last GM, GMK, didn't fix the drive-through window that has been broken for over two months. It's been stuck and impossibly hard to open or close. I'm the one who's ALWAYS on window, and as a result my left arm is now injured.

    The new GM, GMJ, has made a list of things to fix and the window is at the top of that list, but it hasn't been done yet. He's barely been in the post for two weeks, though, so it'll take time. He started out lacking in people skills, but that has improved, and now we need to get him to realize we need more than two people to open the front of the store. I talked to him about that this morning, and asked for just one other person, especially on Monday mornings when I have to label and put away the truck, clean up from the weekend crew, and pretty much fill the reach-in refrigerator with backup pans of custard toppings.

    I came home with the intent of emailing GMJ's boss about the window and my injured arm, and printing a copy for GMJ since worker's comp claims must begin in writing. I've been told I have rather nice handwriting, but I don't think a handwritten note on a piece of printer paper is going to be quite good enough. I texted a coworker when I got home to see roughly when the window broke, and she told me that GMJ had paperwork for me, so I'm not going to do the email just yet. When I get to work tomorrow if I find out I have to, then I will.

    Good luck, Ria, and hope your arm feels better soon.

    I'm writing a special Mother's Day article titled Finger in the Sky. (The second one, which I submitted a few days ago) was That Hedge of Imagination.)

    Thanks, Jim.

    I've been in bed all day with my nose.

    Writing and eating dinner: grilled turkey and cheese sammich with Diet Dr. Pepper. Yep, I'm back to work on my novel. I'd lost my earlier version some time ago and had started from scratch. Good thing I still have my outline, though.

    Hey, His! I'm better today. It was something I ate.

    I'm fixing to work on my blog.

    Glad you're feeling better, Cindy!

    I'm watching Sherlock and working on my novel, "Silent Cries." I'm on chapter seventeen and page 75 so far and over 29K words. I'd had to start over because OpenOffice had corrupted itself for the eleventeenth time and stupid me, I didn't save it to the cloud. Well now I'm saving to the cloud every time I finish writing for the day. I did save the first chapter as a separate file so I could share it with friends.

    Tonight we had a BBQ here at the shelter, so I didn't have to cook dinner. Yay! I rearranged my meetings schedule this week and met with my budget counselor tonight to free up tomorrow. I was going to try to go to the doctor Saturday for my arm, since I don't have anything going on Saturdays and have a whole day, but work needs me to go ASAP. SO I'm going tomorrow right after work. HOPEFULLY they don't put me in a sling or anything, but it's unfortunately looking like they WILL. *sigh* Pain is in my shoulder and elbow. But the good news is that because I have this worker's comp claim in, they're being forced to fix the window.

    Hope you don't have a torn rotor cuff. Maybe it's just tendinitis of that cuff, which is terrible pain enough.
