Thanks MPH. My toe didn't hurt yesterday, but was sore this morning. The pain went away eventually and I can see where it tore now that my polish chipped in the area. It does look worse than what it feels now, but I tell ya, when I did it, it hurt like a mofo! DH said he thought he heard a guy screaming in the house because I went "GRAWWWWRRRRR!!" I just hope I don't re-injure it. *cringe*
I love that everybody is having back to school sales, I got some nice new clothes for killer deals. DH and I looked at a supply list for kindergarten and it took up damn near the whole page. Could you imagine what the higher grades were like? Needless to say we're patting ourselves on the backs and I'm just amazed to realize that those tired, hurried, BROKE parents could have been us had we "drank the water."

DVH - I think the thing that grosses me out most about dirty diapers being left every old where is the fact that whoever did the diaper changing did not wash their hands. I get grossed out when I see ADULTS in public restrooms not washing their hands after using the toilet. There is no difference between that and changing a pissy/shitty diaper. Then you have these people touching stuff all over the store, and it is just plain disgusting.
We're supposed to buy homeowner's insurance that takes effect on the day of closing. Yet we can't get a closing date until we buy the damned insurance. The only thing we can do is buy and pay for the insurance now to make the bankers happy, and see if we can still have it stake effect on the closing date, whenever that may be. As long as the bankers and lawyers at closing see that we did buy and pay for insurance a year in advance, they should be happy. We are hoping to close within the next couple of weeks.

Just saw the funniest thing at work! Our 107 year old resident wandered into another resident's room, found a box of chocolates (like one of those Whitman's samplers), sat in the other lady's recliner, and ate almost the whole box! When one of the aides came in and asked her what she was doing, she said, "Waiting for you." OMG I haven't stopped laughing since! The other lady is gonna be pissed, but I think when you're 107 years old, you can do whatever you damn well please

I want to be like her when I grow up... Hmmm... maybe that's the career path I should take. Start an "Old Folks Home" for "alternative" people like me. I swear I'll be the little old lady in the corner listening to Metallica...
Sometimes I think programs like Excel are making people dumber. I had one of the staff people come to me with a problem involving compounding interest. He needed to figure the interest rate. I told him that he just needs to make the rate X and solve for it. He asked if there was a way to do that in Excel. I said doing it by hand is probably faster than setting it up in Excel. He said he didn't know how to do it by hand. Do they let you do everything with the computer in college now? I would have two and three pages of regression analysis calculations because we had to do it by hand.
