Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
this and that from texascowgirl
there is nothing particular addressed in this post-but I look on this site as a diary where you can express yourself--I am not big on journaling so I don't keep one---this is day 12 from ant/post spinal fusion.I am coping much better than I did 2 years ago.I think:1)I knew abit what to expect, and 2)I have not had the awful complications.I walk everyday---not so much outside until the last few days--I know you Northerners will curse me---but it has been unusually cold for Texas,and this body isnt used to it!Yesterday I walked around part of property and garden,and I was pooped,but so glad I did it.I have been doing small things in the kitchen,folding laundry,etc,but my husband does most-he has been a jewel.My dog Buster sticks with me-I made a "red-cross"kerchief for his neck and he is very proud.---I thought I would be going great guns on art projects,but so far I have just looked at them--and thats it.I have been trying to make the pain med last until Thursday,which is my first surgeon visit.I am going to have to call this morning,because I am going to come up just short. Yesterday I had an Official Texascowgirl Mini-Meltdown,when I started crying because I am so tired of wearing the support stockings,and I was tired of sitting in my favorite chair(?).So I took some med,and felt better--I also know it is the pain med that can make you weepy,but just not ready to let go of that yet.Yes,getting out of bed is the worse---we have been talking alot about this on here--but it does get better--I don't groan as much!I tied a robe sash to both sides of my headboard,I use them to grab and turn myself over---maybe after this I will not have old lady arms (yuk)I hope everyone has a peaceful day-at whatever stage you are at-today IS a new day!
