A Failure to Connect

When I got online last night around midnight, Yahoo was playing games with me. Sometimes it would let me connect to the home page; sometimes not. If it did, sometimes it would let me connect to my mailboxes; sometimes not. Sometimes it would let me get into my mail; sometimes not. Once I got so far as replying to an email, but it never was sent--the computer was just "thinking" for a long, long time.

Just in case some virus had attacked my desktop computer, I got out the Kindle Fire so I could email a friend who was expecting to hear from me, but there I had the same problems. Yikes! I gave up. After taking a muscle relaxant, that seemed like the smartest option anyway.

So here's what's going on in my life: Nothing much. My shoulder and neck are beginning to recover. I'm not in so much pain that I want to curl up and die, and I can actually LOOK at the lane next to me when I want to change lanes while driving.

Last night, I even managed to prepare a couple small applique pieces. That's a lot more than I've felt capable of doing the last few days!

As far as jury duty goes, we should start deliberations today. That's one of the reasons I wanted to prep some applique pieces. I'm not sure how the process will go, but if we're all just talking together in a room, and if it seems appropriate, I might want to stitch while I talk, so now I'm ready to do that.

And speaking of jury duty, it's time for me to get ready to go do that. Thanks for stopping by to visit!

I'm glad you are loosening up. Those unexplained aches are the pits. I find getting cold at night sets me off. And I ibrufen them to death. A good excuse to eat!
