Fixing stuff

My Windows laptop has been just struggling. It's better after new memory but it was time to lose some unnecessary USB attachments. One was a funky USB Video connector that enabled me to run a third monitor. The other day, the internet went out for a minute and we got a notice that the electricity might be shut off for 4 hours the first week in January. So I was mentally revisiting my emergency tech. I have an old chromebook that has 2MB of T-Mobile data for free every month and I can buy more if need be. I like keeping this old dog around and up to date just in case. So today, I attached it to the third monitor and found a sweet little slide show program to run. Nice.

I hate having pill bottles out. It's just a denial thing. Plus I don't like to fuck with them daily. So I have 12 little boxes of 3 sections each and I dose them out every 36 days. I did that today and therefore buying me 36 more days of denial.

Then I packed up a few things that I don't need any more and made a trip to the free shelf in the garage.

The snow prediction has been tamped down considerably. Sigh. We usually get about 10% or less of any snow predicted. Now we're going to get maybe 10% of that 10% as in... a flake. Sigh.

My house is very clean. I'm going to have a loaded baked potato for dinner and maybe some baked apple with it.

Oh and I made two dolls. I'm having a hard time finding cheap felt for hair. The hair on these dolls is made from felt that is really no good for hair. I scored some good, cheap stuff from JoAnne's on Black Friday but it's in very limited colors. I wonder if the dollar store has any... hmmmmm
