mired: to be stuck as in mud
Yes indeedy, I have been well mired lately: pretty much stuck by more than one factor.
We'll begin with the computer, shall we?
You may recall that I have moaned about computer troubles on previous posts. But at least it was usable back then. For more than the past two weeks, it has lain dormant.
Whilst I have been keeping up with blogs on my iPad to some degree at least, I am not particularly disposed to typing out posts on this remarkable device -- except now I am.
More than a week ago, I was set to drive into town to purchase a new one. That was to have taken place a week ago last Wednesday. But my back was feeling a little worse for wear. I had been having spasms since the previous Sunday, and they weren't getting better.
The next day, Thursday, it was even worse. By last Saturday, I could barely move without being in some sort of agony. I resorted to pushing my computer chair around for support when I had to visit the unowhat. Then daughter came through with a borrowed walker. I could really put my weight on it, and that helped a whole lot.
But I was really mired in bed for a few days.
While mired in bed, I resorted to watching Netflix on my iPad. I watched Longmire. (I trust you see what clever thing I have done here.)
I had previously watched a few episodes with Sue, who did not love the program, but when I dialed back in, I was hooked. I finished season 1 and moved on through 2, 3 and 4 in fairly short order. It was sooo captivating with lots of character and drama. The plots weren't totally circular as they are in some tv dramas but kept progressing; some plot lines actually came to an end while others came to life.
It was good stuff. I found that to be Longmired was a significant relief from being computermired and backmired.
So, how was this for an iPad post?
BTW, after two weeks, my back is getting there, but I still have to be careful. The computer? My SIL now has it as his place and is trying to sort it out. I still expect to purchase a new one when I feel up to driving into town, but maybe the old one will get fixed.
But please don't tell me to buy a Mac at 2.5X what I will have to pay for a new PC. I know that your heart is n the right place, and I commend you that you are able to afford a Mac, but ...
