To give you an idea of what my week has been like, today was the most relaxing day I've had so far and I spent it driving back and forth along the New Jersey Turnpike, visiting the Lyme doctor, and going to Target. Seriously, it was a nice break!
I won't bore you with all the details, but here's a brief recap:
- Dishwasher broke.
- Air conditioning broke - AGAIN - for the 5th time in 3 weeks.
- I took Ken for his follow-up eye appointment, and the doctor did find a new retinal tear in his eye that the residents on call missed last week. So, Ken needed another laser surgery, and we spent most of a day at the Eye Institute in Philly - scary and exhausting.
- While in the waiting room at the eye hospital, Craig called to tell me my laptop, "had a funny, burning smell and then went black." Not good, right? Nope. Turned out the CPU burned out. It's gone, kaput. We made another trip to the Apple store, and they think the hard drive might be OK, but they won't work on it since it's "vintage!" Yup, 7 years old is vintage. You may recall I have a brand-new laptop, but I hadn't transferred the data from the old one yet because I was waiting for a special cable to arrive in the mail. It did - the same day the old computer fried!
Jamie and I are both herxing (i.e. symptoms worsening) now from our Lyme treatments, but we're managing OK. We had a good visit with the doctor today.
Tomorrow my Dad and his wife come to visit for the weekend. I guess I'll have to finally get to the grocery store, huh? They're very easy-going guests, though, so that's good.
So, I just wanted to explain my absence. Hopefully, things will return to normal next week - whatever normal is!!
