Most of this week has been dark and chilly. I have been tired, sneezing, blowing my nose, rubbing my burning eyes, and have had a headache all week. I'm not sure if it is allergies or a cold but, as we say in the Midwest...whatever. No challenges done this week.
My mouse for my laptop has been dying and I wasn't sure if it was the mouse or the old rechargeable batteries. As soon as I pulled out the top tub from inside my desk to dig out other old mice (up on the desk there) Karma jumped inside and made her self to home.
If I would have squirted that can of air (and I confess that I was tempted) she would have bolted. You think she looks big now--you ought to see her with all her fur puffed out--LOL! She hates the air cans! I don't think it registered to her that they were sitting down there in the corner just waiting to hiss at her. ;)
What I did locate was my fancy McMouse that I had purchased when I first got my McLap about 2 1/2 years ago.
I was having enough trouble figuring out how to use my fingers on the rectangle to scroll, let alone figure out how to use this sleek McMouse that didn't work like any other mouse I had ever used--so it got put away and forgotten.
But...now? I shouldn't have so much trouble with it, right? I am so used to scrolling and doing everything with my fingers that using the regular computer on the TV is frustrating to me--LOL!
Aside: Dagan and Leah told me I am using Media Center to watch TV and not Media Player. I never seem to get any of the labels and terms correct. *sigh*
Anyways, I decided that I should try the white McMouse again. But I couldn't get the laptop and mouse to recognize each other. Dagan did when they stopped by Wednesday night. I needed the blue tooth turned on, I guess.
Okay...I'm a bit wander-mindy this morning with my stuffed up head. So, I mostly have pictures for you.
We did have one day this week with some blue skies for most of the day.
Karma spent a lot of time snoozing.
She was just as glad we were lazy bums this week. Well, except for the explosive sneezing jags that startled the heck out of her every time--LOL!
BTW--her beloved, favorite cat food--Felidae--is made in the US. You can read about it here. They make dog food, too. Karma get the Platinum for older and overweight cats.
Of course, she may change her tune. She was loving the canned pumpkin with her moist food in the mornings--gobbling it down--until a couple weeks ago. Now she won't touch the pumpkin--at all--walks away. Dagan and Leah said their cats (well, it's mostly Sammy) do the same thing--get bored with it and go off it once in a while. I'll try her again with it down the road since it's supposed to be good for digestion and all.
Dagan and Leah were here briefly on Wednesday night. They didn't give notice yet. The last they were told was beginning of November for move-in. Actually they were happy with that because every year they run a suite at ValleyCon (gaming convention in Fargo) the end of October--so they're swamped with that, too, at the moment. Now they don't have to worry about moving until after that's over and done with.
I said I'd like to wait and go tour the house again when they are getting the kitchen put in and the bathrooms, etc. I was thinking maybe I'd make a video! Whoohoo! In the meantime, here are more pictures. The sheet rock has been going up.
(love that archway into bathroom and pantry!)
stairway to the upstairs
not sure which bedroom Dagan is in
I see a bathtub!
no-they didn't fix the landing :( said they couldn't
then looks like they're finishing off the sheet rock
covered all the windows
So, things are moving along. Looking more and more like a house every time I see new pictures! Next time I am showing you the house maybe I'll have a video tour!
Meanwhile--27 degrees this morning and the sun looks like it is going to make an appearance! My Amazon order is due to arrive today, so I will be figuring out the new land line phones this weekend. Not sure when I will get back to the Tangle Binder. Hope to be feeling better soon. :)
Karma says hi!
