Happy birthday! – We celebrated the beloved husband’s official birthday this week. Technically we celebrate birthdays for the entire month. Family is spread far and wide so calls and gifts aren’t always on the day. He gets another week to celebrate before we are done for this year.
Device prices – I need to upgrade my Kindle. I love my old one but it’s getting wonky. I have to “reboot” it often and sometimes it shuts down. It’s over four years old but it’s had heavy use. In looking at the new models I was surprised to find that a bigger, better model is considerably less than what I have. If only food and healthcare prices would go down, that would be awesome!
Bro follow-up — If you read my tirade on Wednesday (a trip to a medical center with my brother) you’ll be happy to know he is better. He finally went to his regular doc on Friday and is on the way to healthy (or so he says!).
What I learned – When it comes to medical issues people are either minimizers or maximizers. The former downplays everything. My brother is firmly entrenched in that group. He’s either lost his mind (a good possibility) or his memory is a little off as he thinks he was fine when he walked into the medical center. I was there and saw the labored breathing. Then there are the maximizers. They believe that every lost eyelash will bring instant death. I align with that group.
The holidays are upon us – Thanksgiving is in the rear view. It’s time to decorate; meet with friends for holiday cheer; and spread happiness. That last one is really hard for us curmudgeons. The holiday cheer better be high-octane!
So how was your week?
