Discolor Online

Weblog of the sweetest person you never want to piss off.



I've been largely offline the last few weeks. I just haven't been well, haven't been able to sit in front of the computer, haven't been able to do much in the way of household chores, nothing. Cooking has suffered, laundry has suffered. Kate, thankfully, has not suffered because I've been spending a lot of time laying down and we've been watching television together or reading together, or just talking. We accidentally ended up down town at the same time as the public tree-lighting ceremony and fireworks, and rode the Christmas carrousel. I've made a few jaunts out of the house (out for Thanksgiving, a bit of Christmas shopping, driving Kate to her dad's or going off to the post office) but I've ended up paying for it every time. I'm depressed about the condition of my body: I have an okay range of movement but pain in my low back, ass, hip, and down into my leg. If I forget to take Aleve, I feel it. I just can't afford to go to the doctor right now: I'm still paying off Kate's allergy testing and therapy from this spring and won't be out of that hole until February.

Add to this my back-up hard drive (that I use specifically for backing up business documents I'm working with) was damaged in a system crash and now can't be mounted or repaired by my computer. Ug. Keys out of order, or some BS. Laptop and desktop Macs are refusing to talk to each other on the Mac network, but I got the PCs talking to each other.

There is some good in all of this, though. Last night I had to take Kate to her dad's, so I stopped and got a Christmas tree on the way home. The house now smells wonderful, mmmm pine. We'll decorate the house for Christmas when Chris gets back from GenCon SoCal. Tomorrow I take Kate to see the Nutcracker as her early birthday present. God, I hope she enjoys it.

Sorry to hear it all. A little bit of love will be in the mail to you today if the line at the post office isn't long.
