I never got to laundry today,I've been trying to book my rides but the web site is very uncooperative!I'm on what they call my dashboard,I click on schedule a new trip,I do that,it makes me sign in again,I sign in again,click on schedule a new ride it goes back to sign in!What an awful job on this site!


Today I've got no trips to go anywhere!I took this opportunity to sleep late!I'm thinking about scooting to stop and shop in Holbrook but I must wait until my check comes in!I do gutta do laundry and scoot to walgreens!

9.29.12 9.10 pm

I've had a successful scoot to Walgreens today,did a trash run,still to be completed  though,made dinna!Lisa came over and helped me prepare parts of my dinna.She washed and put my broccoli in a pan.I think she is checking on me seeing if I'm eating somewhat right,which I welcome!I need to be constantly reminded of things!


I had a trip to stop and shop in Holbrook but I slept too late to get ready in time!That creates a decision that has to be made!Try scooting round trip to S &S OR just scoot to Walgreen's and get just my needs!I'm running low on funds so I think Walgreen's will be the winner!

9.28.12 6.05 pm

KJ was over!We called my podiatrist,made an appointment!That's a real good thing,my feet are killing me!It also keeps me from doing things I like to!Bowling last night and the YMCA today,opps,I mean Wednesday for bowling.Lisa came over and I looked up a couple sites for her,property sites,she wants to move :( !My homemaker was here and she did a great job as usual.Now I gutta cook dinna :)!


KJ made a home visit that worked out well!I was gonna go to the YMCA but my feet were hurting way too much!I was thinking just work my upper body but,the walk from my apartment to the van just seemed too much today!Later Lisa is gonna come ova,she wants to visit some housing web sites :) !My homemaker should be ova @ 4pm,I'm keeping very busy :)!

9.27.12 9.45 pm

I had hics today :)!My mind is drawing a blank at the moment so I've got no idea what happened!KJ is gonna make a home visit @ 7.30 am,that's real early but she knows I can handle just about anything thrown my way :)

10.26.12 8.15 pm

Today I scooted to Walgreens,I got some Franco American spaghetti and meatballs!I used to like this,easy to make,quick,not much clean up,it was kinda challenging for me to eat thou.I used a bowl and a spoon but,with my tremors its kinds hard to keep it on the spoon :(!Tomorrow I've got hics!Just a normal day I think.I made some Franco American spaghetti for dinna tonight ?)!

9.28 2.30 pm

I cancelled going to the YMCA and hics tonight my pick up times were so bad they didn't seem like they would work :(!I do need some things so I'm thinking of a scoot to Walgreens!

9.24.12 8.40 pm

I got the name of someone I can complain to about joint venture's useless web site!He will be there on Wednesday and Thursday!I have to say to him it just has no practical use!I've got many other issues with it as well!Tomorrow I've got an appointment to get my pump refilled!I think its amazing how she get the backlophin in the pump,and she usually does it on the first try!These are the times when not being able to write legibly bothers me cause I'll never remember my last pick up time from Braintree rehab!Busy day today,did all my laundry,got Lisa's desktop working,cooked and cleaned up after dinna!Hics then pump refill tomorrow.

9.24.12 7.00

I've done all of the utilities Lisa has available on that desktop it seems to have increased the speed ever so slightly!I think if she wants to share my Internet connection she is gonna have to drive me to best buy and she is gonna have to buy a signal extender!

3.24.12 4.10 pm

Lisa called and said she has a desktop computer that her son was gonna trash,asked if I could look at it!Its actually pretty nice,a dell demention wth a flat panell monitor!I've got it doing an error check now :)!

9.23.12 almost 9 pm

I just spent a few hours with the pretty lady Lisa :)!She asked me if I had heard the new Aerosmith song,I had yet to.I thought it was a good chance to show off a little so I said I can you tube it!I did and posted it to my fb page:)!

9.23.12 2.15 pm

I've booked my rides 4 the wk!That was kinda challenging too!I called most of my trips in but on Wednesday I've got to book it  a certain way,They say they can't do it that way!So I had to battle with the web site but,I think I was successful!Its not easy to ck and make sure they are right!Very poor design on the web site!


I just got out of bed but that is what Sunday is for,recharge :) !Ive gutta book my rides today,I'll have to call then in cause the web site sux!I've also got to do laundry!I do need to scoot to Walgreen's too!I'm thinking laundry will be the last task cause there is always tomorrow if I'm running late!No rushing around,its Sunday :)!


Tomorrow I've got no trips anywhere so I can sleep untill I wake up :)!I've just gutta do my normal Sunday tasks.laundry,book my rides 4 the week.Then maybe another scoot to Walgreens and pick up what I forgot today!

Ive been to a tennets meeting at the office,that was good!I like being very social and I think of these as social events :)!I always enjoy seeing the very pretty Kim too :)!One of these mtgs I'm gonna ask her out :) !


I didn't go to the YMCA today,it seems my issues with "the ride's" web site has me all mixed up!It seems all it takes is one thing to throw me off of my nomal routine :(!


I got up very early this morning and couldn't shake the cobwebs    
out of my head so I cancelled going to hics today!I'm starting to get a clear mind now that its mid afternoon :).I'm thinking of a scoot to Walgreens.

Nickelback-How You Remind Me Lyrics

Ive got to get to really know these lyrics cause its karaoke night tonight at hics


The only way I can keep my pick up times 4 "the ride" is when they call the night b4 to type the times in notepad!The web site only lists the times I requested to be picked up or droped off,not very helpfull!Today I've got hics :).

9.17.12 6.50 pm

I've spent most of the day trying to familiarize my self with joint ventures new format on the web site!Its very difficult to get used to and understand! I've had to call to make sure of my trips.It doesn't even seem if they list the pick up times on the page!Its a good thing they call the night b4!


I got "the ride's"web site to work :)!Its the difficult to navigate and understand format though!In time though I'll get used to it and understand it better :)!I'm not gonna go to the YMCA today,I need to scoot to wgs and get some things and review my trips 4 the rest of the wk cause now I can :) !


I've already booked my rides for the week,I had to call them in cause the web site is STILL not up!The person even said she thought it was working now but I just checked,not on my computer!Its just not being sure of anything,I can't check to make sure I booked them ALL right!I've got laundry left to do today UGG!

9.15.12 10 pm

I've had a  great afternoon!Lisa came over and we spent a few hours just chatting :) !She is such a GOOD influence on me!She gives me a hard time about my eating habits,makes sure I'm wearing my lifeline pendant,tries to get me to call the doctor about the fluid build up on my back!Lisa has become such a great friend

9.15.12 4.44 pm

I've had a success full scoot to Walgreen's,I was even able to find peanut butter m&m's!I saw Lisa downstairs and I guess there are many advantages to living on the 3rd floor!Nobody can hang around your window,its much quieter,don't have to worry as much for people leaving the front door open!

still not up

The web site for "the ride" is still down!I'm pretty sure if I had all the codes I could have fixed the issue by now!Hopefully when the issue is finally resolved its not like it was when it briefly came up about a wk ago!That was very difficult to navigate!

9.14.12 1.10 pm

I was able to pay my comcast bill,I was having issues getting that done yesterday,it kept saying my card was not valid!I've learned that with my tbi if I'm having issues with a particular task,try it again another time don't keep getting frustrated!

9.13.12 5.20 pm

I didn't go to hics today.The web site is still down for "the ride" and I had to make sure of the rest of my trips.They call the night b4 but I just need to see my times!I'm not sure of anything,I'm not even sure of the rest of my trips and I just called!Thats why its so important to me they get it up and running!Ive spent qt with Lisa this morning!She was concerned about being on the Internet and not being able to get phone calls so I did a little research and found a cheap dsl service,net zero dsl,$9.98 month!They supply a dsl modem too!She is gonna call them.


KJ has been over and she helped me email myself a vid I took with my phone of the concert but I have yet to see it in my inbox!We called "the ride" about the web site they say they are working on it,keep checking!My check finally came through!Later I go to rec!We have planing at pizza hut and dairy queen :)!

9.11.12 9.22 pm

The web site for "the ride" is back up but,I don't know what kind of fool did the reprogramming or restructuring of the site!Its much more difficult to navigate around and its saying it doesn't recognize addresses that are reprogrammed on the site!It doesn't post the pickup times too,it only lists the requested drop off and pick up times!I'm not happy about this at all :-(!Ive got to now save the land line message,enter the times on notepad save the file,geesh!


I've had a great day!I had hics,I remember the last group we played pictionary and I even tried to draw a picture of a gift,the word I had to get my teammates to say. My writing issues got in the way thou :(!I tried though!I got home,the phone was ringing,it was Lisa asking me to walk so we went to d&d's!No check yet :(,I'm really sweating this months check out!"The rides" web site is still not working :( !

8.10.12 2.40 pm

"The ride's" web site is still not up :(.I can call tomorrow to book my ride to hics on Tuesday but Ive gutta remember to call and Ive got a special way to book my Wednesday trips that once I tried calling and the agent said you can't do it like that.I say I do it all the time.I guess I'm just smarter than the agents working at "the ride"!
