When something stops working, it sends me into another dimension. I don't get angry, I lose my mind. Totally gone. Maybe I go to that place first because for so many years I didn't realize I was actually capable. OMG I have a brain and I can do things!
For some reason, I still have to go to the stupid place even for only a visit before the brain kicks in and I proceed with the fix. What made me write about this is the little five minute idiot time I took last night. When I watch Netflix, I use the beautiful, glorious, noise reducing Bose headphones my daughter sent me. Insert a quick comment here: Listening to MUSIC through these headphones is a reminder to me of what it will be like in heaven. Anyway, last night while watching a little movie on my computer, wham! No more sound. I checked the cords. I checked the receiver. Then I opened the headphone battery compartment and found a AAA battery in the drawer. But it obviously was just in there to tease me. It didn't work. So I took one battery out of the wrist blood pressure monitor and huge relief, the headphones were again singing in my ear, so to speak. Aaaaaaah. Life is so good.
I leave tomorrow morning to spend time with my daughter and her family in Arizona. Here is the link to an article in their local paper about her store. Picture me there for the next 8 days.
