A challenging week.


Sunday’s Haiku

Challenges go on,
When will I get my laptop,
It is in the mail.

I’m having my patience tested. Not only am I waiting to get scheduled at the pain clinic to get the nerve root injection in my back, but I blew up one computer. Took it to the shop & they wanted $350 to repair it. **sigh** The fan was only working at 50% so it got too hot to touch. Sounds like a sentence from a heavy-duty romance novel.

I got online to select an inexpensive laptop from Walmart. It is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. I’m waiting with baited breath. I don’t want to wish away time, but come on Tuesday.

At least my book reviews are being read. The second author contacted me with requests. I’m glad they are noticing.


Patience is not my strong suit. Patience, grasshopper. Huh!

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.

  1. Oh no! Feel better soon and hope the computer hassles are sorted. xx

  2. Thank you. Onwards & upwards is one of my favorite expressions. ❤

  3. May the new laptop bring you much joy and I hope your back pain improves.

  4. Your week sounds like mine. I had another bad fall yesterday. Paid $18 for a pie and put in the oven and forgot. Next week has to better for both of us.

  5. I’m so sorry you fell. On the 12th we had traveled for my birthday for a belated trip. Driving we didn’t have the opportunity to get all our water in so I got dehydrated & tired. I went to a $ store & on the way out I collapsed & hurt my revised artificial knee & right foot. Falling is not a wonderful experience as you know.

    That was an expensive pie! Sorry it got burned. I hope you’re feeling much better now.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
