jupe takes a deep breath and prepares for the return journey


A new low in hits on the blog, although I’m not sure what exactly the hits on my Google analytics mean. We are preparing for another day of traveling. This time we will have my grandson, Nicholas with us.

We spent yesterday doing last minute activities. We helped Cynthia my daughter-in-law get a new phone for Nicholas since he recently lost his. Cynthia and David limit Nicholas’s phone to one that can call and text with limited Internet access. Finding this kind of phone required multiple trips to different stores (Sam’s, the AT&T store, Target) but we finally managed to purchase and activate one for Nicholas.

We also did the annual bookstore trip with the grandkids. That’s always fun.

This trip has taught me that onscreen typing is not the problem with using my tablet as my main computer access. Instead I find weird little glitches annoying and difficult to overcome. These glitches include little things like the clunky interaction with the WordPress editor for my blog. There doesn’t seem to be a way to put links here easily. I didn’t try putting a link in rich text doc then cutting and pasting it. But what a pain.

Also, reading an article in a scholarly journal becomes cumbersome due to constantly being bumped off and having to re-login. Then having to begin over again in a lengthy article at the beginning using the online reader provided by the journal. When I tried to just download the pdf to read, my tablet gets confused and doesn’t do it properly. Sigh,

I’m beginning to think this might not be just my ineptness.

It’s going to be a long one today, but I am looking forward to being back in my usual environs.

    1. Thanks, Cindy. It is a delight to have Nicholas around. He and I share a passion for books and music. We are planning to get him over to the Ann Arbor area to see the rest of the extended fam now living there (Mark, Leigh, Ben, Tony (Ben’s partner), Emily and her husband Jeremy. Should be fun.
