((((Kathryn)))) I wish the concussion symptoms would just go away, but from what little I know it doesn't usually work like that. I understand the frustration when someone implies that you can just make it go away if only you tried hard enough. ARGH!
My DSis has told me a several times that DS10 is faking having Tourette tics. REALLY? I am always so stunned to hear her say something that ridiculous that I don't know how to respond. Even now I find myself mentally running through possible responses that I could say to her. Most of them aren't very nice......the majority of them fall into a category of mess-with-a-Momma-Bear's cub and she will respond with full fury. I think about how I could educate DSis in how Tourette tics work, but she isn't interested in hearing it. With all the possible responses I come up with (in my head), I have chosen to just try to ignore her opinion. Let it go in one ear and out the other.
Today was normal Sunday activities - Attending church with multiple family members, teaching Children Church, eat lunch with friends and family at a favorite cafe.
I am choosing to make myself use the laptop trackpad instead of a using an external mouse. I have used a mouse for about 40 years so it is a habit that is firmly ingrained in me. I packed the mouse & USB dongle up and put it away so I couldn't easily reach it. This is my fourth day of only using the trackpad and I am starting to get the hang of it. I still find myself reaching for the mouse though so this change in workflow is going to take some time to become the new normal.
Nancy - having an open house every 2 weeks is something I haven't heard of before. I find it interesting how things are done differently depending on where we live. We usually have an open house once here. Usually, it is held soon after a place is listed for sale.
Today our Dog of the Day is Buddy (Great Pyrenees). He is the oldest of all of our dogs and is the calmest. He is also the dog with the most hair and needs to be brushed more frequently than the other dogs. I removed about a half WM bag of hair today when I brushed him. It boggles the mind where all the hair comes from because his hair doesn't look any thinner.
Time is precious. Waste it wisely.
