"And that's why God Almighty gave us fire insurance and the public defender".

Yeah, that ain't it - the laptop wasn't connected to a power cord when I tried this. I already tried half of the methods here: [link] and right now taking a break for food and for stop restarting my computer every 5 minutes.

Technology, meh.

Mom called to this morning to tell me her cousin's husband passed away (he's been sick for a long time so this wasn't a shock), and that Stepdad's uncle has Covid-19, along with several other people at his independent living.

Oh dear, sj. That is concerning.

Shir, maybe since it is a laptop removing the battery for a complete reset might help? Yeah, technology is too often very annoying.

Not even noon yet, but the day has been a mixed bag. I did manage to get out for my walk around 7, then decided I would tackle my living room to prepare to put up the tree. Took down the curtains that get dog nose nasty from him pushing them aside to look out the window. Tackling the end tables, the annoying list.

The highlight was picking a random YouTube playlist of "Top 100 Music Videos". Fun to watch a variety, Missy Elliot, Talking Heads, Prince, never know what is coming next. I may be dancing around the living room more than cleaning.

The worst time was deciding to fill my water cup. People with ice makers know that thing where an ice cube randomly ends up on the kitchen floor. Well, little puddle plus tile floor plus plastic sandals equal Laura falling spectacularly hard, glass and ice cubes all over. I am absolutely fine, but I'll expect to see an impressive bruise on my forearm and thigh.

So, I figure I have to keep dancing around the living room to keep from getting stiff. And Dire Straits are now singing Money for Nothing. Picture Laura dancing like a complete dork!

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Oh, ow, Laura! Glad you're OK.

I'm fine. Madonna is singing Vogue!

Laura, I'm glad you're okay.

Ouch, Laura!

I made cranberry curd this morning and was licking the bowl. So good. But now I have a huge pile of dishes I don’t want to do.

I watched so much MTV back in the day. This is a good way to keep me on track with my chores. I take lots of breaks.
