Woke up this morning with cellulitis again. I got right on my antibiotics and I'm feeling better, but pretty exhausted. I was wondering why I was almost crying because I couldn't finish a quest in Asheron's Call. I tend to get emotional when I have cellulitis.

I got a notification from the county late last week that my attendant would be terminated unless she finished the IHSS Provider Enrollment. Which basically entails getting fingerprinted, background check, sitting through a training film (which had very little information about the actual job. But had lots of threats if one were to misrepresent hours worked.) And filling out a few forms. All of which had been done last year, but the notification may sound like to clear this up before the end of the month or my checks would discontinue. Calling IHSS was an adventure in itself. Talk about voicemail hell I've never worked so hard to make a phone call before. Anyway, turns out that we were fine, but the county had sent this threatening letter to everyone who received IHSS Whether or Not They Already Completed Provider Enrollment. Ain't that special?

Friends are coming over today I will probably watch them all help Carol pack up Betty's place in preparation for installing a new floor. I'm actually looking forward to a low key day with not demanding company. I hope you all have had a good holiday.

Yesterday I got a call from my phone company. I had a bill for $17 and something that I still owed. Now, I knew about this bill and was a bit confused about what it was for exactly. I neglected to investigate this yet, but I was going to. Anyway, the woman who called mentioned collection agencies and I really didn't want to get involved in that, so I called my phone company after talking with [personal profile] loracs to double-check with her on what she knew about the bill. I didn't think it would be any problem to just pay it. I had my debit card ready and it was only $17. The woman answering the phone wanted a three digit number off my bill. Now I didn't have my bill and I couldn't exactly go looking for it. I told her my situation and asked her if there was anything else I could do. She asked me if I knew the amount of my last bill. Now I don't know about you, but I don't run around with the amount of bills in my head. Since I didn't have the bill in front of me, we were left with the same problem. So I said to her, I just want to pay my bill. She said she couldn't process my payment without either the three digit number or the amount or my last bill. I said well can you find my bill its for the phone number I was caling on. Just apply my payment to my account. According to her she couldn't do anything without the three digit number. I'm boggled. What exactly do they think I could do that would damage anything? I'm not taking any money out of the account. I'm putting money in, for crying out loud. Do you know that I couldn't pay my bill over the phone? They are perfectly happy to threaten me with collection agencies, but won't take my money when I'm freely offering it. Ridiculous!
