I don't have a credit card. And our debit card system in Canada is very different than that in the USA. Here the banks control their own debit cards, not the credit card companies like in the USA. IE: Our bank debit cards do not carry a Visa or MC logo on them. All my bank debit card allows me to do is to access bank machines to withdraw cash from my account. It doesn't allow me to arrange preauthorized debits from it or buy anything online using it.

I wonder if there is any way you could set up monthly bank drafts through your bank then? Surely they allow that for people who want to pay their bills paperlessly already?

Though that would probably simplify things, so they won't allow it.

I'm feeling a little better today. Today is day 3 of my course of Prednisone. I coughed when I got out of bed, but nothing like I have been doing. I didn't see stars!! I also managed to get from the bathroom to the kitchen and while still short of breath when I got there, I didn't have to flop over the sink to stop myself from passing out. So I am on the mend!

I just might be able to finish putting away the groceries that I bought on Friday. With the exception of the perishables, they are still sitting in bags in my living room!

I'm feeling loads better today! Still coughing once or twice when I wake up, and when I talk for a period of time, or do too much activity. But nothing near as bad as it was last week.

I actually had some energy today to do a few things. I washed my bedding and remade the bed, washed dishes, cooked, washed dinner dishes, cleaned the bathroom (tub, shower tiles, sink, toilet, shower chair). Spot vacuumed the floors in the high traffic areas and put away the groceries that I bought on Friday!

Now I'm bushed and starting to cough, so I think I over did it a bit even though I took rest breaks. So I'm done for the night. I'm going to take some cough syrup, have a cup of decaf and work on some beta testing projects that I need to get done.

I do 3D Art and I work for various stores and vendors in exchange for their merchandise. Saves me hundreds and hundreds of dollars of year and gives me new content to play around with inside Poser!

I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Whenever I get bronchitis, I can count on being without energy for weeks. I know you have to go back to work, but do take it easy when you can so your body has plenty of time to heal!

I managed to get through a day of work today and even did 4 1/2 hours overtime.

Work was nice. They took into consideration that I had been off sick with respiratory problems so they gave me patients in rooms near the medication room and charting station so I wouldn't have to walk so much down long hallways! I really appreciated that.

Now granted the patients I did have were a real handful! Super busy assignment, but the steps I saved walking more than made up for it.

I found that I was still somewhat short of breath and had to stop and sit down more frequently in order to catch my breath, but otherwise I did ok.

I was supposed to work on the ward tomorrow and Friday, but the manager told me that she found out yesterday that there was a 2 day Gynecology Conference at our large trauma hospital in the city, and asked if I would like to go. So instead of working on the ward tomorrow, I'm going to be sitting in a classroom for 2 days instead!

I may go into work on Friday evening for 4 hours just to pick up a few more hours for cut off period! When you work 8 shifts out of 10 in 2 weeks and miss 5 of those as unpaid sick time, that really hurts!!
