Laptops, Desktops, & Weekends

Still have not quite decided on what to do for Lent with the blog. A reader suggested as I did my daily Bible readings to write what I thought about them. I thought this was a wonderful idea until I started trying to write a post. I kept thinking, “What if what I write and think is wrong?” If I am wrong, then I would be putting out false information, doctrine onto the World Wide Web – which is 25 years old today – and this made me very nervous. Sometimes, while reading, you have to ask your priest questions. Since I cannot call Father every single day to ask him questions to verify my information and ideas, I have put this idea aside…for now. The future holds posts of this nature, but not for this Lent.

In other news, WHRT has progressed! There is a brand new scene and two new characters I found in the apartment building where the main character lives! They will play bigger roles in the future of the series, and it is a nice one, I think. There are 1,303 brand new words added to the total. Monday I will put down the progress, for now I take pleasure in having something positive to report concerning story progression despite a major weather change which has affected my joints terribly. My pain level jumped at least four notches in the past 48 hours.

Currently the weather has evened out some. Another major change in pressure and temps will be in Kentucky, according to the weather reports, on Sunday; however, with the way I have been hurting, and reports from Marine and his pain level, something is going on in the skies. Many people laugh and say arthritics really can’t tell weather changes – I hate to differ. When the barometric pressure changes, so does the pain. Sometimes it causes the pain to be so very much worse, and others it helps relieve the pain and pressure. This is why summer is the best season for me.

I have had the worst luck with computers and laptops lately. As you know, my desktop’s hard drive died so a new one has been ordered – thank you, Cheyenne and Carlos – and is winging its way to Lexington as I write. Cheyenne, as you know, let me borrow his laptop to use and play with Linux, as well as get writing done. Yesterday the laptop, called Kaga, would not turn on! I panicked! What had I done? Had I killed it?

Carlos checked it out and plugged it into almost every single outlet in the place and it still wouldn’t come on. When I called Cheyenne to let him know he handled it far better than I did and said he would stop by today to check it out. Carlos, being the good husband he is, let me use his brand new laptop on a more consistent basis.

When Cheyenne came by today, he determined the power source had died – you know, the power “brick”? – and he calmly collected Kaga and said, “This is a thing. I have a desktop I am using more than this laptop. This is a thing that can be replaced. People can’t be replaced.” Isn’t that wonderful? I luff my best friend SO much! Thank you, Cheyenne, from the bottom of my heart.

Now the weekend has arrived and I have a plan: Since the weather is supposed to change on Sunday, and thus the pain will probably get worse again, I am going to use tomorrow to arrange the house and get everything ready. This last weather change caught me flat-footed so to speak. This one will not.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
