Happy Tuesday my friends.
Here I am, typing happily away on my new computer, but there is one HUGE problem. The hard drive on our old one was corrupted and we lost EVERYTHING! All of our documents, pictures, etc. I'm worried, but not overcome with worry yet, because bless Jamie's, (our oldest son's), heart. He installed an external cloud device in our office last year that backs up from my phone, iPad and computer every. single. night. At least it's supposed to. I just don't know how to get this new computer hooked up to it. Hopefully it will transfer everything once we are able to sync it all. I just picked it up an hour ago and I have to say I love it already. I've texted Jamie and asked if he can help me via phone after he gets off of work.
So, I'm sorry. No photos again today. Just boring me, typing. I've knitted some mittens and a couple of cozy memory 9 patch squares along with a BUNCH of crocheted squares for baby blankets. I do have something to show you if I'm ever able to. And the best part is that the new computer is a laptop so I should be able to take it to the lake this summer and blog from there too. Yeah!
Nita is recovering well from her hip replacement surgery last week. We took care of little Sophie all week for them. I have to say that I miss having her on my lap. Larry has been put on antibiotics because his flu turned into bronchitis as a secondary infection. Dennis seems to be doing well right now, although he has several co-workers out this week with influenza. I sure hope this stuff stops soon. :-)
My doctor called last week because he wanted to do a follow-up on my back. While I was there I told him about some pain I had been having all week in my side. He diagnosed divericulitis and wanted to put me in the hospital for IV antibiotics. I convinced him to let me try oral meds first because we had a funeral on Saturday. I also was on the calendar to prepare meals for three different people who were either sick or had surgery. He agreed to try it and I think I'm better. After all of that, I don't think he was too concerned with my back anymore. :-)
But...I got a toothache over the weekend. I went to the dentist this morning and guess what? I need a root canal in a tooth that has already had a root canal because there is an abcess at the base of the tooth. How does that happen? Only to me. It's crazy. He was going to put me on antibiotics before the root canal, but I'm already on them so he doesn't have to. It's insane my friends.
Sometimes I truly feel it's one step forward, two steps back.
But...it's getting a touch warmer here and that means spring is really going to arrive at some point and then I'm going to go to my happy place at the lake and just stay there permanently. :-)
I hope this is finding you all well and warm. I truly am doing fine and I know these are temporary glitches yet again. Hopefully next time I write, I'll be able to show you some pictures too.
