Can you imagine how hard it is, for a man who has chronic back pain, to shop for chairs? All that getting up and sitting down! Agony. And then I saw his face when he sat down in one particular chair. That chair should arrive at my home tomorrow and if I get the same look on Darc’s face that I got in the store, it’ll be so worth it.
I know a chair is not a cure-all, but I am hoping it’s a step in the right direction for his back pain.
We also picked up some of those plastic mats to protect the carpet under your chair and the smell is killing me. It’s an intense combo of plastic, vinyl, and rubber. It has an almost skunk-y kind of smell. I’m hoping it’s done off-gassing or whatever it’s doing, soon!
In case no one noticed, (bahahaha!) I haven’t really done any posting over at the “new” domains pretty much since we got them. Setting up the site was fun, but posting over there is a royal PITA. My husband was much more dedicated to it than I was, but even he gave up. We can’t switch hosts until March, so I’m here at WP until then, at least. After that, well I guess it depends on what kind of hosting we find.
My husband, the keyboard diva, feasted his eyes on yet another keyboard over the weekend that he had to try out. I swear, we have a veritable keyboard buffet here now! LOL He practically has one for every mood. Honestly though, I don’t mind much because to me they’re like the tools of his trade. A mechanic needs wrenches, a butcher needs knives, a painter needs brushes, and a writer needs keyboards. I have to be careful for my own sake though. I’m not too far behind him when it comes to being a diva about keyboards myself. I found one that made my fingers itchy when we were at the store so I went ahead and picked it up. So far, it’s pretty nice. It’s a lot like the one I was using before, but it has that ergonomic curve to it so it fits my hands better. Fewer typos, yay! It’s amazing, really, how much having a keyboard that fits makes you actually want to type. I’ve long had a thing about collecting pens too, so I guess it goes right along with my own writerly inclinations. I have the heart for writing fiction, just not the talent.
I made a theme for my computer desktop. You’d think with the 150+ themes I’ve got that I’d find one to fit my mood, but no. So I made my own. Hundreds of pictures, all having something yellow about them. I was craving some cheerful, sunny, happy yellow and now I have lots. My eyes are happy now. Yes, I admit I have a theme obsession. Way back when we had Windows 98, I found this one program that had a ton of themes and would actually change them on whatever schedule you chose. That was pretty cool.
Still no apparent change since talking to management about the neighbor’s dog. I haven’t even seen the lady who’s supposed to live there, just her daughter and the baby, and now it seems the daughter’s boyfriend – or baby-daddy I guess – seems to have moved in. The dog still makes a lot of noise, and I don’t know if management has even found the opportunity to talk to the lady. *sigh*
So … how have you been?
