Evening update:


Howdy. I’m sitting here listening to some Sherlock Holmes on audiobook. Young Master Duke wants to go back outside, but we have been in for about half an hour. I’m trying to keep the heartburn down to a dull roar.

Hubsy took a shower all by himself tonight. The goal is for him to continue to do things on his own. Hopefully, hopefully soon he can be 90 percent independent again. Heck, I would settle for a solid 50. However, I’m not gonna hold my breath.

I’m actually waiting for the phone to finish charging. I took a nap, and the dratted thing drained dry. Sighs. I know better than to lay down and leave it unplugged while I am downloading audio.

That’s about it for now. The Hubsy is rattling around the kitchen. I’m going to let him. I have to lay back down after a quick smoke break. I’m just not feeling good at the moment.

Hugs, my friends. -L

I’m saving money


This was a little unexpected. Recently, Amazon changed how I am supposed to buy books. I know, it has something to do with google, and something to do with… snooze. What it boils down to, is that I can no longer buy books in the kindle app. I can’t even purchase them on the amazon app.

I am only allowed to purchase them via a browser. I normally see one of my author friends has published a book, and I look it up. I normally if it is less than 5 dollars, buy it directly.

Now, I have to whack it into a ‘list’ and then later go back and buy the dratted thing from a browser. I am certain that there is a reason for this, and it may even be valid. However, my browsing habits are lazy af.

If I have to go to a browser, I generally won’t purchase something right away. I save it, for a much later time. That ‘list’ I have? Unless the book drops dramatically in price, I normally don’t ever open it again.

So, I’m not supporting my favorite authors. I’m not buying near as many books, and amazon isn’t getting my money. I’m also not buying those books on google books either.

So, in reality, the 20 per month I am saving this way… will probably go towards some funky camping item. It’s the circle of life.

Whenever amazon and google pull the wedgies out of their arses, it will change again. However, I’m doing a camping trip prep. I’ve decided that the week of my birthday, if the hubs is okay, I will be off to the great outdoors. I’m going to my favorite park, and camp.

Note: You are still stuck with me that week, but that’s a problem for another day. -L
