To keep myself busy

Just for the heck of it, I am going to write a blog post now when I should get ready to walk Tyke in a little while. I think he will be patient and wait for me to finish if I don't dawdle too much. That means I have to do this quickly and not hesitate about what I want to wite down. I was going to say, "on paper." But that's not quite what I'm doing. I don't have a pen in my hand. 

I have installed a Mac OS X today that I got from my sister. She got a new computer and I asked her if I could have her old one. It took me a bit to get it working and the internet connection straightened out, but with the help of the kind man at the help desk, everything turned out well in the end. I have only worked with a Mac a few times in the past before, but I am getting around okay. I will be spending the rest of the weekend familiarizing myself with it.

My depression and flu are just about over. I am about back to "normal" or whatever a person is in her daily life. I feel so much better, but the flu is traveling through my whole system, if you know what I mean. I think all the orange juice that I drank helped me get better, because I'm a great believer a big doses of vitamin C in its purest form. Right now, I'm having some coffee for a pick me up and to help warm my bones. I had the windows open for most of the day, even though it is cold outside. 

It is such a relief to feel better that I am almost in a jubilating sort of mood, but don't worry, I am not hypomanic. I don't quite feel good enough for that. On occasion, I still feel like lying on the sofa under the gray blanket with Tyke in my arms. And Gandhi can lie on my stomach and purr. 

My body no longer feels like someone beat me with a two by four. I think that was the hardest of all. Being so sore and uncomfortable that even my pain medication didn't help. I wanted to be swadled in soft, warm blankets made of fine wool. 

Well, that is all for now. I have to make bookmarks of all the other pages I visit. At this rate, I am not going to have the opportunity to get into any sort of trouble this weekend.

Starting to use a Mac? Probably the best decision in a day to two. Or longer. I have used nothing but Macs, and I have found them very good. Happy bookmarking! But no, no bookmaking.

Glad to hear you are doing better. I hope that continues to happen. Feeling beaten up by a two by four is not fun. I feel that way sometimes. Even if nobody has taken a two by four to me.

And, excuse me for saying this, but if you tried hard, I'm sure you could get into some trouble this weekend.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

How miserable to have had the FLU.
No wonder you felt in the dumps--your body was suffering!

A half day flu?
Is there such a thing?
