Getting it done



Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 4:32 PM
                        Got up and started with the thing I’ve been thinking of doing for a while now – getting the modem and router to get a wireless connection, off of the floor (attached to the wall). Got that done, then had no internet connection to the Roku stick or my computer. I kept unplugging and restarting the modem and router to no avail. Switching the cords into different ports on said devices, again to no avail. I was frustrated. Hadn’t even had any coffee, though it was made and waiting for me to drink, but I was on a mission. After sitting on the couch to rest and think, I tried plugging cords into different ports and got them correct, FINALLY,  therefore I was up and running on the TV and Internet. Then I had some coffee!
                        I cooked a frozen pizza for my son and I since my mission was completed. I washed and cleaned-up the dishes in the kitchen, drank some coffee and watched a couple episodes of CSI Miami.
I got a little vacuuming of the floor where those devices had been sitting, done. I vacuumed around the sofa, as well as under the sofa cushions.
Got my teeth brushed and the sink wiped out too. Then some wiping of dirt/dust off the floor, along the wall, with a wash rag was done.
Computer Time!

Speech

            That’s interesting; no email. It’s unusual for me to not have any when my computer is first turned on, especially after it’s been off since before midnight this morning. Oh well, I suppose it’s not the end of the world.
            For the first time in 4 or so days, I did not want to get out of bed this morning. So, I went to the restroom and went back to bed. However, I told myself that I really should get up, so only stayed in bed another 20 minutes. Then I went to the kitchen and took my daily medicines. Next was to the bathroom to shave and take a shower. After the shower, I got dressed, put on my shoes, and drove a few errands. Included during the aforementioned errands was a stop at the car wash. Pulled through the wash area and into the vacuuming area where I vacuumed out the car. Now it’s clean inside and out; well, except for the inside of the windows. From there I went to the corner store and got myself a large cappuccino (Hazelnut).
            Got home and watched a couple of TV shows while munching on some slices of summer sausage.
            Over the weekend, I found out that I have to give a speech at my daughter’s wedding. Well, I’ve never given a public speech, so I’m a little nervous.
            OK, that's enough from me. How are you doing today?
