Before I became ill, my tablet went a little crazy and rebooted randomly and often. Last night I made the mistake of not taking my charge cord to bed with my phone. I have been using it to listen to podcasts and radio stations. Around 3 AM last night, it gave up the ghost. I got up and plugged it into a charger but it didn’t reboot so I left it until morning.
This morning it says it is charged, but it’s not on. Unfortunately some time back I dropped it and broke the on switch. So no phone, no tablet.
I tried to listen to U of M radio this morning on my laptop but it kept stopping. I thought about getting a radio. I get tired of the new fangled stuff that works a good 75 per cent of the time. But I’m more likely to head over to the phone store after finishing this blog.
I am feeling better and better. Stopping one’s life seems to help with recovering from illness. As Eileen pointed out, I don’t often do that. I only stop long enough to recover enough to function and then I start going again.
I canceled my shrink visit this morning with the idea that I am gradually getting back up to speed.
My Loeb library Homer’s Odyssey came in the mail recently and I am using it to work on understanding the original of this work.
My Mom was once again in and out of the hospital on Wednesday night. This time for a UTI. Eileen said she seemed in very low spirits yesterday when she visited her. I am going to visit her in person today (for the first time in a week). Yesterday she didn’t have her glasses. I’m hoping they found them and that she is in a less bad mood.
