Cold and snowy mental health day
Friday, January 22, 2021
Took the day off from work today as I need a mental health day after the events of the week.
We all need to remember to take care of ourselves and our mental health as we are being bombarded with so many things daily. Vaccine coming, well no its not, changes in. government, so many sick, endless news cycles. Today I unplug except for SP.
remember when you got the news from a paper and the nightly news. You can watch news all day if you want to now. Keeping up with the world is necessary but being consumed by it is not.
My project for the day is hooking up a new tv. Our old tv was a monster, not large screen but not a flat screen. It took a lot to get it out of the house and I have to pay to take it to the dump or to e-waste but that's ok. They laughed at me when I asked about donating it to someone.
So anyway the new one is absolutely flat. Hard to believe. Plugged in three wires and then spent two hours connecting to the world and all the apps I use. That TV now has Youtube on it which means I will be able to do my exercise videos in front of it!!!!!!!!
This is the Christmas present my husband and I gave to each other. Almost didnt hook it up as we could not find the password for our internet account and then the WIFI password. That is why it took so long. A project for later in the year is going to be working on all those passwords. Who knew years ago that in 20 years everything would have a password and we should keep great track of them all? Not me. My son threatened me to even get an email account as he said I would be a dinosaur if I didnt and be left behind. He also told me that DVD's would disappear and we would stream things into our homes and I thought he was nuts. He worked in that industry at the time. Told me he was going to law school part time at nights as he would be out of a job in 7 years. I thought he was nuts.
Anyway SP off for a walk and then making soup and then doing a exercise video in from of my new TV. Yipee. Have a fantastic Friday.
