I have now changed to my third monitor (they last 10 days). Whoot. Whoot. I thought I was so cool. I took the directions into the bathroom with me but didn't use them because I felt confident I could do it by myself. Hahahaha. You guessed it. I did great except for the first all-important step. You have to disconnect yourself from the receiver you are replacing by simply pushing some buttons on the receiver (which looks like a small ipod).
I skipped that step so I installed the new monitor, inserted the transmitter, logged on to the receiver, and gave the receiver the new monitor number and it should have been Bob's Your Uncle. (I love that phrase, it is so totally useless.)
Nope. I got all kinds of bells and whistles. You can't log into a new monitor until you've disconnected. Lesson learned I think. It took me some finagling to get everything reading correctly again.
Oh, Lordy. Old age, diabetes, and Covid - a triple threat to my lifestyle.
On the home front, my daughter comes over every other weekend so I get a little company from her. Buddy is delighted to see my daughter since the grandgirls are not coming so much. He has taken to greeting the neighbors with so much gusto that they usually step back from all the barking. Barking is his love language. I've tried telling him that it does not endear him but he doesn't care.
I haven't been doing any crafts. I haven't been reading any books (still listening to audiobooks though). Have been taking shorter walks as poor Buddy's tongue is dragging the ground from the heat and humidity. He won't drink out of a plastic carry-along bowl but will try to drink dirty water on the street. Go figure. It might be because I have a glass bowl at home for his water. Not sure.
I did get a new bookcase and put it under the kitchen bar and it is working well for right now.
Most of my plants are dying from the sun. I water them but I think the amount of sunlight and heat are killing them. More money down the drain. Hahaha.
I almost ran out of gas the other day. Since I have been getting my groceries delivered, I haven't stopped at the station near the grocery where I get my points off. So I stopped at a random station and put $5 in until I could get to my normal station. I can't remember the last time I put gas in the car and I'm sure it was not as expensive. I have been trying to make myself get out a little by just mall walking if nothing else and then came the Covid warnings again. I'm blaming all my weight issues on Covid and no one can prove me wrong, Hahaha.
That is the some total of what I have been doing except living through you guys and the trauma of house selling/moving.
More later ....
