Computer problem solved (I hope)…

But I’m just plain frazzled. I’m reading a small mass market paperback but am only managing to read a dozen pages per day. I’ve stopped watching the daily Trump-fests called briefings.

A house that backs up to us is building a new structure, which gets larger every week and will soon be Right In Our Face. Damn.

We’re both well and staying isolated except for Tuesday grocery runs, that’s when Albertson’s has senior hours 7-9. Our bi-weekly cleaning lady is expected today, though we are cleaning a lot with disinfectant wipes and such. I’m downstairs listening to jazz (The Best of Wayne Shorter).

It’s rainy today, which I enjoy. Stay safe and healthy, everyone, and breathe clear.

    Glad you’re back online, and hoping your computer continues to cooperate!

  2. I hate computer problems. Hope you only have a minor problem. I just finished reading an Agatha Christie novel and watched two video versions of it. I enjoyed pianist Stephen Hough’s ROUGH IDEAS, a book of his brief thoughts on various subjects. Hough’s essays on Sibelius have motived me to find my music CDs of his works. We’re getting light rain here, but it’s snowing south of Buffalo.

    • Me, too. It’s that bedamned Searchmine virus, which has shown up several times on the laptop, and it’s a bear to dig out as it leaves files all over the place. I got it done, but it took hours, and I just wasn’t in the mood for that.

      Looking for comfort reading these days.

    I have been able to read at night before bed, and some nights when I am not sleeping well, I have gotten up and read. But it has been harder to focus on the reading.

    We need to go to Costco for a prescription next weekend, so we will see how that goes. They do have special early hours two days a week for seniors, but we may not try that unless we get really low on things.

    • Our Costco doesn’t have the special hours, and it’s mobbed every day. They let 50 people in, then when enough have left another 50. We have prescriptions at Walgreens which has a drive-thru window.

      Now that you’re retired, you should be able to read any time you like, mornings are always nice, with coffee (tea) and a muffin, scone or bagel.

        I have been reading some most days and last week I read a Kindle book in the mornings. But over the weekend and today I have either been too distracted or too sleepy from not sleeping at night. But I am sure that is temporary.

    Then you would enjoy today’s weather here, Rick – basically, an all-day rain. Oh well, I wasn’t going anywhere anyway, Planning a walk to the bank and the supermarket tomorrow. Jackie has been cooking and freezing stuff since we got home. Tomorrow looks like nicer weather (57 and sunny, compared with 39 and rain today) before more cold and rain on Wednesday.

    Fortunately, we were able to refill all of our 90 day prescriptions (three each) at Costco in Florida a couple of weeks before we left, so we’re OK until June.

  5. Jerry House says:

    Glad you’re back, Rick.

    Take a deep breath and de-frazzle. We’ll all get through this in time.

    I am terrified of something happening to this computer. Who could you get to come into your house and fix it. So, I am hesitant to do anything more than the basic stuff.
