Almost Wordless Wednesday

Sammi puppy sacked out on a bunch of fluffy pillows

Shh…Sammi is sleeping.

This past weekend we traveled out of town for a wedding and brought our favorite furry travel partner. We stopped at the hotel to get ready for the dinner and reception and when we went to leave, we saw Sammi had made herself quite at home! ❤

Working on those butt grooves…

I used to have an old chair that I absolutely loved. I still have it, but now it’s in the basement and is used primarily by my boyfriend when he games. Win-win. 🙂

At any rate, first my Rosie and then Grizzy took up residence on the top of the back cushion, so often in fact that the cushion had a permanent “V”-shaped dent in it. Our friend Rene commented that Grizzy had created a “butt groove” in it and that cracks me up because it was so funny and so true!

Dent in process.

Fast forward to today and we have a new chair and ta-da! Grizzy has once again claimed a spot atop the cushion. It’s not quite permanently dented yet, but whenever I see him there I want to sing, in the spirit of Bob Seger’s “Night Moves,” G’s working on those butt grooves…. 😀


In other news, I have a little datebook and I’ve been writing down daily to-dos. Many times they contain errands but I’ve been making a point to include to-do’s like “knit” and “blog” and “run.” It’s not a perfect system, but it reminds me that I need to do more things for me and my own personal enjoyment. A lot of times lately I feel like I’m just working on freelance stuff. I’m happy to say I can check off “blog” from the list and it really feel good – not just checking it off, but blogging. I miss it and am trying to do more of it.

Which brings me to my next point: My laptop isn’t quite at death’s door, but it’s slowing down considerably. At least two keys stick pretty badly, which makes typing clunky so I’ve been using my computer for “have to do’s” (like work) and not “want-to-do’s” (like blogging) because by the time I get to the latter I’m exhausted from work and how putzy this thing is.

I’ve had this laptop since April 2015, so it’s been a little over four years. Not too bad for a laptop, I guess. I think my last one made it close to five years but toward the end it was really chugging along. It took a looong time to boot up, much like this one!

So now I wonder, do I get another laptop (cheaper than a desktop setup; familiar; takes up less space) or do I bite the bullet and get a desktop (much more ergonomic; I could get a bigger screen; it’s easier to do certain tasks while sitting at a desk).

It’s tough because I can see pros and cons to both. One option I’m considering is a Surface Pro because it seems to do double-duty. What’s unfortunate is no matter what, it’s a chunk of change I wasn’t quite expecting to spend. It was always one of those “I’ve got time” things and now it’s suddenly “Nope, the time is now!” And this doesn’t quite seem like an emergency-fund purchase to me; more like a necessary evil. :p Oh, well. I know it’s time to do some serious thinking and price comparison-shopping.

You know what’s funny too? I scrolled through the blog to see when I bought this computer and I saw pictures of my old apartment and got sentimental. Sometimes I really miss that place. It was such a great little space, really lovely and full of memories.

Anyhow…good night, all! 🙂
