Sitting in Comfort

As I've been sitting here working on various things on line, my poor office chair is crying out to me to let it rest in its misery. I really do need a new one. The last one I bought was purchased about 12 or 13 years ago at Office Depot. I liked that chair, but it became unstable so junked it.

A friend of my sister's gave us one of their old chairs, which was okay and better than mine, but still had some problems. That's the one I'm using now, but one of these days, I'm really going to have to get a new one that is more secure.

Office Chairs are really important when you spend a lot of time like I do at the computer. Ergonomics come into play here big time. Of course, then I run into that money issue again. Still, the day will come, out of necessity, if nothing else.

Now that I've whined about my chair, I see the wind is blowing mightily outside, and I think perhaps it's time for lunch. Hmm - the weather, furniture, and food, all in one sentence. It's been one of those days. :}

News, Games, and Knees

Happy Friday Readers!

I was up early this morning after a nice long night's sleep. I was hoping to turn on the news and find a peaceful resolution to a hostage situation that is going on not far from my home. A man has been holding his 16 month old cousin hostage as SWAT teams surround the apartment complex where he is. Everyone is holding their breath, praying that baby survives this ordeal. He says he's taking care of him, and he's been seen and heard. The family swears the man won't hurt the little guy. I hope they're right. It's been going on for three days now.

After news time was over, it was time for a little diversion. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go check out poptropica for some fun or just play a game of Boggle on my computer. You know, games are good for keeping minds sharp. Of course, it's never a good idea to become consumed by them, but a game a day can do super things for your mental reflexes.

I made the mistake of doing some shopping yesterday. My knees are just horrid, but there was no one around to help bring the things in. I had soft drink boxes and cases of water. I'm still exhausted from it. I think that's why I slept so well last night. My body needed it, but my knees are just shot today. With their condition so bad anyway, it's not a good idea to really do this thing, but I was essentially without other options. You know how it is when you say, 'I think I'm gonna die now'? That's what it felt like when I finished yesterday. As it is, everything's scattered around the living room, where they are likely to stay for days.

Just typing this has made me tired again. Maybe I'll play another game.
