The Four Horsemen Ride!

Posted on

Well, here it is.  My newest addition.  A Samsung Chromebook.

I really wasn’t paying attention when I bought it through AT&T, and I was thinking it would be half the size that it is.  I intend to use it merely to record our vitals in the morning, but now I might try using it as a laptop.

I am also using google docs to write it.  I can add MSWord to it, but I think I will try to keep this computer clean.  But I have to relearn everything, both on the computer and the word processor.  It should be an interesting experiment.

Snookums is having a bad day today.  It is an up and down thing with her, and nothing that I can see triggers it.  It is like her mind comes and goes at whim.

The next visit with the neurologist is a month away.  We will then go over the MRI and do a cognitive test that will give us a benchmark to work from. I am still optimistic that she will continue to improve as time goes on.

Today is an overcast day that seems to fit my mood.  I admit to being a bit pessimistic.  I am sure that like most moods, it will go the same way it came.

Other that that, the day goes on like every other day, and I handle the woes and joys as they arrive and depart.  This week I get a respite from doctor visits and bill paying.  Perhaps the decompression is what I am feeling.

Of course, there is the news.  It is hard to browse over the offerings without getting a sense of impending doom.  Stupid decisions are made.  Rosey promises are given.  Prices go up faster than income.  Both sides are screaming at each other.  It can’t continue on like this, and when the break comes, neither side is going to like the results. The years of peace at home have ended.

Yeah.  I am a prophet of doom.  It does not matter which side prevails.  The four horsemen ride, yet few see them.

So dawns the day here in the dry pampas of Texas.  Soon the rains will arrive, dragging the hurricanes behind them.  The grass will green, the frogs will croak, and the mourning doves will change their lonesome wooing to a more pigeon-like coo.

Good morning!!

    First of all, one day at a time with Snookums. I am believing that with your help she will continue to improve. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. Keep the faith Sir!

    I’m with you on the four horsemen , they are riding and our halcyon days are over. What will be, will be…

    There’s always a learning curve period with new tech, but I usually enjoy the exploration time.
    Sending continued good wishes for your wife’s improvement.
