Just Another Manic Monday

Like the name of the song, is was a manic Monday. 

Well, first I woke up late:

Then rushed to work (late for me is getting up at 6:10 am).  Was at work, looked at the clock - UHOH going to be late for my appointment!
So I rushed off to the doctor 

Then back to the office.  Then worked later than usual in the office, rushed to get to the pharmacy, post office, grocery store then home.  Where, while I'm trying to get some software installed via the internet from my office, my son is going "MOM have you called AT&T about my phone" "MOM take me to WalMart" "but MOM, I NEED you to do this" and then my hubby is calling "Marilyn, did the package arrive?" "Marilyn, why didn't the package arrive?" "MARILYN GIVE ME THEIR PHONE NUMBER", then my aunt calls, the office calls, and I'm ready to pull my hair out. I can just feel that small area of white hair I have expanding exponentially. 
Well, several of you have asked about the nerve test I did.   You know, the

I was hit with.  And the
I was stuck with.
So the results.......I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in BOTH wrists.  I was fitted for hand splints today and have to wear them every night.  No wonder I was in such pain!
As for my neck, well, I'm headed to a neurosurgeon sometime.  I'm waiting on the call.  Currently, the shot they gave me for back has helped.  I still hurt, but not as much. 
So that's where I stand.   We know what's wrong with the hands and the back; now to concentrate on the neck.
So, I will leave you with a few more vintage goodies my mom has.  Isnt' the lantern so cool?

How about all these Sears and Roebuck reprints?
