And here we see the difference in how he and I approach things. I stayed perfectly calm and started making plans to get it fixed, and the Exfactor started to stress and moan and groan and generally have a very hard time going on and on about it, when I had made the plans to solve the problem already. We borrowed my sister' s car and took the computer to the repair man. It was as simple as that. That' s how you do it. There is a problem and you find a solution.
I never realized what a stressed out person the Exfactor could be and how much he could worry about little things like that and go on and on about them. Whereas I saw nothing to stress about, but only a problem that had to have a logical solution, like most of those problems do. It really opened my eyes and I wondered how much of his stress I had been carrying with me subconsciously when we were still married. I bet he rubbed off on me a lot.
Anyway, I' m sitting here in this nice bright living room with my sister' s dog and nobody is home. My sister is at work and my nephew is at school. He turned 15 yesterday and we celebrated that with a nice piece of pie. He has grown a lot this summer and he darn near looks like a grown up. I' m surprised whenever I see him. He is so tall.
I had to get pain medication for Jesker. He had been limping just a bit with his left front paw when we went for walks and it would start to tremble. The vet gave me pain pills to give him twice a day and you wouldn' t believe the difference in him. Where before he walked like an old man, now he moves around like a young dog. He hops and skips, sort to say. He must have been in pain all along from his osteoarthritis. I don't know if he is allowed to stay on the pain medication indefinitely. The vet gave me pills for 5 days to see if they would help. I hope I can keep giving them to him, because they make such a difference. He feels so much better.
I really do like my sister' s keyboard. I must look for one like it myself. It' s not very big, but very handy and the keys go down so smoothly. Mine always feel like they want to get stuck halfway down.
I won't make this long. I am sitting here without my cup of coffee or my cigarettes and it is tough. My computer should be done some time today and I will go pick it up before 6 pm. My sister is at work until 5.
Have a good day all of you. The sun is shining here, but there is a chilly wind.
