I want to apologize for the totally depressing post I left on my blog yesterday. But I guess that is what a blog is for, right? Getting it all out on your chest. And boy, do I have a big chest....ooops, maybe I said that wrong!!! LOL... I have A LOT to get OFF my chest! There we go. Anyway, among one of our wonderful Christmas gifts we got a web cam which I love playing with. I still learning the very basics and have signed up with Skype and Google Talk and Yahoo Messenger. I talked with my dad and his girlfriend like that the other day and we had a blast. So I'm gonna like this web cam, I believe!!
Any hoo, I've been doing self portraits and found that I can add flowers or finger prints around the border of the photo. I LOVE the finger print one (I can't believe I'm saying this about a picture of ME!!) and will post it here on this blog. I've already gone and used it for my profile photo on all my things...blogger, Yahoo, Google. It feels good to be true to yourself and I do believe the prednisone is helping by not making my face as "roundish."
Here is the picture in question, in all its glory.......
I also got another great Christmas gift from checks my in-laws gave to Frankie and I. It's called a "Sharper Image Literati E Reader" and I am totally in love with it. For one thing, it's in color and has a gorgeous full 7 inch screen. It doesn't play music, but I wouldn't want that anyway. I find music very distracting when I'm in the middle of a good book. The only thing is, I can't use the wireless here in the house because Qwest's code is too long for the Literati to understand. So we have to go out to the Library or someplace that offers free wi-fi. Bummer! But I've bought about 7 e-books so far and all went in without a problem. I'm about half way to having my full Janet Evanovich collection into the reader. It just is sooooo, soooo cool to have my whole library at my fingertips. I've seen the negative reports, but frankly, people are awfully picky. We all want different things. And so far, the Literati meets my needs. I just need to figure out how to have the computer write to the SD memory card so I can get more room in the reader. I purchased "The Guinness Book" and that takes up almost all the memory space on the Literati! So I took it off and am now trying to figure out how to save it to the SD card so I can play it on the reader. If any of you are a computer buff, and would like to help, thank you! :0) Here's some photos I took of my new "gem."
|The box is most unique I've seen...a gigantic book!!|
|Here is the Literati itself. It even came with its own leather case. Wow!|
Now on to some somber news. I called the Social Security Disability court to cancel my hearing for the 26th, and I have to write a letter to the judge and let her know and why. I stated my reasons being about the bariatric surgery (which is going NOWHERE again!) and that I have no lawyer at present because I fired the last because we couldn't see eye to eye on everything. No even eye to NOSE! LOL! I just couldn't let it go on my records that I am severely depressed and needing psychiatric care every month....I would never get another job as a nurse no matter where I went!!
AND, Dr. Wigal still hasn't sent her part of the records, so I had to play phone tag again. First with the bariatric clinic to see if they, HA-HA, got anything. Then if not, I'd call her butt again and see what the hold up is. Good thing - I see her next Thursday, so I can get things moving in person, hopefully.
I will end this post with a very favorite song of mine, sang by a very favorite Irish boy band of mine named "Westlife", that raises my spirits every time I hear it. So go away depression and don't come back any other day!!!!!!
Hope you all have a great day! :0)
