Yesterday was a busy long day. We had problems (again/still) with our accounting software, so only one of us was allowed to have it open. Apparently IT fixed it overnight, but had to shut our server down for a bit (again) to do it, so that's why it didn't get fixed until after the workday ended. I'm sure IT is getting as frustrated with this as my boss and I are.
The night before dh had asked "don't we have the Hatfields and McCoys" movie (the one with Kevin Costner) and I said yes and went and found it in all our dvds. We don't have a dvd/bluray player hooked up anymore (I plan to when we get our bonus room set up with a big tv), but he should have been able to watch it from his computer. Geez, I guess Windows 10 doesn't even really have a player anymore. We had to use something else so he could watch and even that was a pain. For some reason his dvd/cd drive sometimes wants to work and sometimes not. I don't think he's even used it for anything since he got this computer. Put the disc in and it reads that there is a disc in the drive, but won't play. Then the next time it won't recognize a disc is in the drive. After 3 or 4 tries, it would finally play.
Last evening he went to put the dvd away and came back down with a few more to watch. Well, the first one I finally realized wouldn't work because it was blu-ray. The next one was some homemade racing video he bought years ago. I couldn't get it to work. So, it's 9:20pm when he starts all this. I'm just about to head into bed. Finally at 10:30 I get to go to bed! I was able to get a regular dvd movie he had picked out working. Then he got out his old old laptop and later told me he was able to watch that racing dvd on it. Then this morning he says sorry, he didn't realize how late it was when he was having me help.
I called my mom's medicare advantage plan insurance to make sure she doesn't need to "re-enroll" for 2021. She doesn't. They will automatically continue her coverage for the new year. Took me 5 minutes of going through their phone system to finally get to talk to someone to answer that simple question.
I still have the dang headache at the base of my skull. I counted how many of those new pills I've used to see if it started around the time I started using those. Nope. I've been taking them for 35 days now LOL, so that is not what's causing it. I thought I had maybe started them a couple week ago. Time flies when you are having fun, eh?
Today is payday. I still have a couple of bills I pay online, but not on auto pay. Mostly because I kinda like to pay them and check them off my list, haha. But, with all I have now to do, with the addition of my mom's life, I think I'm going to get those put on auto pay now, too.
In other good news, my company president has decided to close our office between Christmas and New Years, giving everyone the time off paid. I had already set up to use my PTO days to have that time off, so now I won't need to use it. I'm never going to get my oodles of hours used up!
