Nothing accomplished today

I took Lady for a walk and then climbed back in bed for a couple of hours. Other than doing my laundry I have absolutely nothing to show for my day. I had intended to get the pre-op lab work and EKG done this morning as the lab is fairly close to this park, but decided I will go tomorrow. I have three weeks until surgery, and just one week until move-in to my apartment.

The only thing I am concerned about in the small apartment is storage space. While I have ranted and raved about the overheads in the 5th wheel, they hold a surprising amount of junk out of sight. Now I don’t know what I will do with it all, plus the stuff under the bed.

I’m trying to decide what I’ll do about computer(s). Since I won’t have a room to devote to an office, I will probably just use my laptop and the Brother B&W Laser printer. I am going to give away the HP. I will take another look at a Lexmark because that was my favorite and easiest to use printer for scanning, copying and printing. Unfortunately when any mfr comes out with a new model they add things and capabilities to it that aren’t needed, certainly not by me. If anyone knows of a simple printer that can scan and copy, no fax pad or phone receiver wanted – I’d sure love to know about it.

I feel so good about my life right now that it sometimes scares me. I’m facing a change in lifestyle (and slowdown), and eye surgery. When I go to NY I am going to see a surgeon about my hand, which is getting worse. I hate to think of having surgery on my right hand thereby losing the use of it for a while, but I will try to be open to what can be done for me. Unfortunately, if they tell me to quit using a computer I will just suffer a while longer.

Actually the slowdown in the pace of life worries me a little bit. I have always been a “goer” and a “doer” – can’t stay idle for long, although sometimes I yearn for the ability to just be idle for a while. I’m already thinking about volunteering with Friends of the Library, just something I will keep in mind for when I need to be busy. I’m sure other opportunities will come along, although I’m not going to do anything I’m not enthusiastic about. Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt!

If I don’t fix my supper now I will end up skipping it. I hope having plenty of room to cook will be an incentive for me to do more of it.

    Maybe you can find a 'used' printer!

    Glad you took the time to just smell the roses. We all need to do that more.Rojo

  3. "can't stay idle for long,"I can identify with you on that one Gypsy. That idleness stuff is not a good thing for many of us folks. For me it's called….boredom!! Not a good thing to have but it follows me constantly:((Also know what you mean by manufacturers always wrecking up good things by making them worser!!

  4. I have a Kodak – its easy and simple –ink is not as expensicve as other ink

  5. Glad to hear you're doing well and feeling great! Paulette and I both use Epson Workforce printers at home and find them simple and easy to use – they are usually around a $100.Paulette's model is a print, copy and scan just like you wanted. Mine also has a FAX function which you didn't want. I'm sure any computer store would have both models of the Epson Workforce available as they are very popular and do a great job.

  6. I can't wait to see pictures of your new home, and the furnishings that you get.If you buy a used printer, make sure that it is a 'refurbished' one. They will usually last as long as a new one.I am so glad that you are getting your eyes fixed, that will make a big difference.Happy Trails, Penny, TX
