I finally used that Amazon gift card I got for my birthday. I meant to buy music, but I suddenly lost interest in searching for new artists and bought two books instead. They came in the mail today, There Is Power in a Union and The Six Gun Mystique Sequel. I didn't realize Union would be so big. For the price I though it would be thinner. It's 500+ pages. I can't read either of them right now because I'm still not done with four other books I started a while back and haven't touched lately. I get overwhelmed if I have too many books going at once. And only one of them is fiction. I am a super slow reader of nonfiction.

I got a call back from my case examiner after I called and left a message yesterday. He said there will be a decision on my case this Friday. I have an appointment that day with my occupational doctor, and he said my private insurance would have to be billed, but if the case turns out in my favor then my insurance will be reimbursed. My hand has been doing okay, but I still feel a bit of pain if I move it the wrong way. Sometimes I'll feel it more if I use my hand more intensely, like when I cleaned the house the other day. It felt sore for a few days after that.

Earlier I went to the store and bought a twin bed sheet set and a twin mattress pad. Both are going to be a little too big for the mattress I'll be using because they are made for 12" and 15" mattresses respectively. I think my mattress is going to be one of those thinner types, like the old styles they used to make. I'll just have to tuck the sheets under really well.

My entire family has been getting those horrible "robo calls," or scammer calls. My dad will get several of them a day. I went around town with him today and he must've gotten three or four calls. We block every number that comes through, but they could be using thousands of numbers for all we know. They think they're sneaky by using local numbers, but I never answer an unknown number unless I have good reason to think it's someone I know (like if I've seen their number and/or location before). My dad got two messages left on his phone from people talking about loans, one from Quicken Loans and another from some other place, all in a span of six minutes. He suspects maybe someone is trying to use his identity to get a loan, but they won't get one because he has a credit freeze. It's either that or a scam, but either way he's not worried. It's just annoying. I found there are subscription services than can block known scammer numbers for a small fee but I'm not even sure it's worth it.
