Remember Me?

Last Saturday I met my computer geek son who lives 2 hours north of me and handed my poor sick computer over to him for some serious doctoring. I hope he will be able to effect a total healing by this weekend, but I'm not sure that our priorities are the same. I hope I won't be disconnected too much longer.

As for the rest of the happenings in my life....there isn't much to report. Work is busy, so I'm busy. I've done a bit of sketching, but nothing impressive. Little Elijah is growing like a weed. He is getting fat and chubby. So cute! The irises and narcissus are blooming in my yard. The weather is nice. I haven't read anything interesting in a while. I just took 4 books back to the library, all of which I tried and quit on before getting started very well...they just weren't very interesting. I picked out 4 more today. I'm hoping I like these better. I also checked out a book on hypothyroidism. I went to the doctor this morning, because I haven't felt well in a long time. (complain, complain) I hope he gets me fixed this time. I checked the book out because I am convinced that most of what ails me is caused by my under active thyroid. I think I am going to have to be my own doctor for the most part.

I've stayed late at work once again in order to use the internet here. The sun is still out so I think I'm going to get out of here and enjoy what is left of this day. I hope you are all well and you haven't let anything amazing happen to you while I've been gone. I wouldn't want to miss out on any good news.

ps I did watch two good movies from Netflix this past weekend. If you are a Jane Austen fan you might want to check them out. "Lost in Austen" and "Jane Austen Regrets"

  1. Good to hear from you Steviewren. I hope your computer is fixed soon. Nothing more frustrating than a computer gone kaput.

  11. Do tell what books you abandoned and what you are trying on now, please.

    As for Mr. D and that wet shirt (well, let's face it, it was Colin and the wet shirt, wasn't it?) be still my heart!

  14. I miss you too. Why don't you post your son's contact information, and we'll all work together to be sure that he understands that his priorities are the same as yours. At least on the computer.

  17. Oh i hear ya. They told me at the Apple store last week they'd have to keep mine for 3 days to fix the cd/dvd thingy. I said ,"Not on your life big boy!". I'm leaving it while I'm in Paris!!! Whew. That was a close call.

    BTW, Looked at your things that float your boat. I'm right there except for the camping thing. Everything else floats my boat as well. Amazing isn't it???

  21. My wife and I always find it amusing when our adult children need something...we jump right to it...but when we need their help...you have to schedule it in to fit them!!!! Go figure. Always nice to drop by and catch up on your post. I've been busy traveling and working... more to come. I hope this note finds you well. Blessings. Strider

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
