I think that I'm depressed again. I haven't wanted to do anything at all for the past several weeks. But I'm not going to let it keep me down.

My landlord finally had new railings installed on my front porch. It's been an issue for years. It became a matter for action because my neighbor had a stroke last fall. I also have a problem getting up & down the stairs. There are only 3 of them, but they're very steep & shallow. There is barely enough room to put your foot on them. Another neighbor (there are 4 apartments in my building) has osteoporosis. He also has to fix the sidewalk in front of the house. The roots from the 2 Maple trees have caused some upheaval & the sidewalk is dangerous.

My dog, Jada, really keeps me going. She entertains me.

My sister gave me a new camera (Nikon, no less). It takes really nice pictures. When I find out how to get them on my computer, I'll be putting some here. I finally loaded my user's manual on my computer & it's 204 pages long.

That's all that I can think of for now.

This a picture of my last dog, Sandy, taken in the summer of 2010.

    I think I am fighting depression too, as I am getting frustrated at being sick. That is such an adorable picture of your dog in the bathtub. Looks like he likes it there!

It's a wonderful life

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Well, I finally have my tv & internet back. Boy! Am I glad. I've been having some issues with my computer (it was really slow), but it seems to be better. I did a 'Disk Cleanup' & that seemed to help a lot.

My best friend (Jada) is busy throwing things around. A little while ago she managed to turn the TV off. She must have stepped on the remote. Life is never dull with her around.

I'm finding it much, much easier doing my email on my computer instead of my phone or someone else's computer. I'm grateful for being able to use the ones across the street, but none of them are up-to-date. It was very frustrating. Another thing is that now I can print things out. Like instructions for exercises.

Now all I'm waiting for is a significant snowfall; like a foot. My sister gave me a new digital camera (a Nikon) a couple of weeks ago & I'm dying to get some videos of Jada playing in the snow.

That's all for now. Have a good night.

Another Good Day

Monday, January 14, 2013

It's a warm (for January) & sunny day today.

My sister came up yesterday & gave me the new camera that she bought me. It's a Nikon Coolpix camera & it takes great pictures. Now I'll be able to put pictures on here. At least when I get my internet back. Hopefully I'll have that back this week.

I started to clean my car out & discovered that the interior is soaked. I knew that the doors leaked, but not everywhere.

I'm going to stop here. My time on this computer is limited.

Have a good day everyone.

i called an auto salvage yard (formerly known as junk yards) about getting rid of my car. They told me that they would give me $325.00 (including pickup) for it. emoticon Now I'll be able to get my cable back. That means that I'll have both my TV & internet back.

My landlord is finally going to put up new railings on the front porch & my back porch. It's about time! He's also going to fix the sidewalk in front of our house.

The weather is kind of rainy here today & a bit chilly because of it. The snow is melting fast. To help it along, the temperature is supposed to be up around 50 for the next few days.

I feel very happy today. My doctor took me off of my diabetes drug (Janumet). The combo is Januvia & Metformin. I think that Metformin was causing me to feel lousy most of the time. Whether I' m right or wrong, I feel much better now.

I'm going to stop here for now. I hope everyone's having a nice day.
