It was a hard day at work. I finally got one solution to the closing entries and ran into another problem. No one was around who could help me and I try it on my one. I realized I was printing hundreds of pages so I tried to stop the printer. I turned around and saw my screen had turned blue and said there were serious problems with my computer. It said to shut down but I couldn’t control/alt/delete had no response. I tried to shut it off and it wouldn’t shut off. Finally, I got ahold of Kim and she said to pull the plug. Duh! She said that machine often gets the blue screen of death.

Another problem I had was someone came in and said the computer had taken his vacation time away and that it did it to everyone. I had no idea how to fix it.

Kim will be in Seattle for a week. I’m going to have to do the payroll myself next week. It is horrendous.

I got some apple cider for Nature Club refreshments and then picked up Danny. The apple farm was near his kennel. I went home and walked him in the rain until he did his business. I had a message on my machine. Sharon needed a ride to Nature Club. I told her I’d pick her up and then stop at Duncan Donuts for the Halloween Munchkins. I was gobbling down my dinner when Marian called. They just had their car towed home and needed a ride to Nature Club. I put my dinner in the frig and called Sharon and told her I was on my way. I picked her up and went to the donut store. No munchkins. I went to the other Duncan Donuts down the street. They’re closed. I went to Shop Rite and got some mini Halloween cup cakes.

Upon coming out of the Shop Rite I see a lady get hit by a car and go flying up on the windshield and down onto the parking lot. I reached for my cell phone to call 911 but saw a man was calling. A girl was screaming because her mother had been hit. A nurse ran to help the woman. They had to pull the daughter away from the girl who hit the lady. The girl was standing there by herself crying so I went up and put my arm around her. I felt sorry for her. I would dread something like that happening. She turned into my shoulder and cried. She said she didn’t see the lady. It was dark and rainy. She seemed to get her composure and the daughter was crying into her cell phone trying to tell someone what happened and where they were. I put my arm around her. She asked me if her mother was in pain. I said I didn’t know but she is talking so that’s a good sign. I told her I heard the ambulance coming. When it came, I left. Sharon was in the car and heard the screaming but didn’t know what happened.

We went to pick up Marian and Paul and my cell phone went off. It was Sonia. The burglar alarm people called her and she called me. She said the alarm went off and the police were on the way to my house. I knew what had happened. I forgot to set the alarm so it would go off when the dog came down the steps. I picked up Marian and Paul and headed back to the house to turn off the alarm. The police were gone by the time I got there.

We made it to Nature Club about 20 minutes late. The speaker had already started. He wanted to leave early so asked if he could start. We had the business meeting after his program. It worked out well. We served the refreshments and were out of there by 9:00. It was still pouring down rain. I took everybody home. When I got home, I took Danny out. He did his business quickly and returned to the house. I was trying to watch Stargate Atlantis but he kept pestering me. It was past time to go to bed and he wanted me to go up stairs.

Well, I’m up here and can’t wait to get to sleep. Tomorrow is Saturday and there is no school. I can sleep in.
