An actual post!
It's been way too long since I last posted an entry. Let me see...what have I been doing?

My computer's hard drive crashed and took with it all of my up-to-date contact information with it. Which was a shame on me moment, because we actually have AND use a storage device connected to our home network. The last time my contact info was backed up was in 2007. Everything else on my computer was saved directly to the network storage when it was created or downloaded so it's all safe. I've been digging out old printouts that have any useable updated info on them and correcting outdated phone numbers and addresses. It is such a pain in the ass.

Since my computer is out of order for now, I decided to buy a tablet. It's something that I've wanted for a while now. I bought an iPad Pro. It's the first Apple product that I've purchased since my Apple IIe computer. I'm absolutely loving it!

The contact info that I'm restoring is going onto the iPad and the iCloud right now. At least there is a "backup." Up until this point, I have steered clear of cloud storage, but for now it seems to be a good idea for the iPad.

Oh, and I seem to be getting old according to my doctor. LOL. I know that came out of the blue, but it popped into my head. I told him that my shoulder hurt and he said that's because you're getting old. :) After an X-ray and ultrasound, he discovered that I didn't damage anything, but I do have tendentious.

No excuses for not posting. Writing about my day used to bring me pleasure. Then I started feeling that nobody would want to hear about my crappy day and I stopped posting. I also stopped remembering that I originally wrote for myself and not for my friend's list. When I started censoring my posts for my friends, it no longer became enjoyable. Lesson learned.

Yes. We are still here in Niagara. Not planning on moving for a long time.

Exactly. We've gotta write these for ourselves ... and with that motivation, it's a really good thing to do. The social aspect of it is fun, but it's secondary.
