Chrome book vs a desktop computer


I have been struggling to blog with the chrome book. I don’t have as much freedom and still after 2 years struggling to use the chrome book. Last night I restarted using my desktop. I had Microsoft Office reinstalled and now I can download things and it is so much easier with a mouse. I don’t like my chrome book much and gathering I wouldn’t like a laptop much either.

100 Word Challenge (Reboot): Nest


100 Word Challenge (Reboot): Nest

Wandering threw the forest, Sheba was quietly scanning the area around her, ever on the lookout for her quarry. She pushed through the brush.

Suddenly she heard a raucous commotion up ahead. She walked on trying not to scare anything away.

There was a shot and men shouting. “We got the danged blue bird that’s been attacking our animals. Those birds are vicious,” they crowed walking away.

Sheba heard chirping. A few feet away she spotted a nest with baby birds in it. Not quite what she was looking for, but she crouched ready to attack, tail twitching. “Sheba, NO!”

*****100 words*****

Tara’s Rules

1) I provide a one-word prompt.
2) Write anything you want using that prompt, either as inspiration or as part of your 100 Words.(That means you don’t have to actually use the prompt word, it can be implied.)
3) Your story has to be EXACTLY 100 words (because someone will ask, hyphenated words count as a single word.) This is the one rule I will be a stickler about.
4) Submit your story here as a comment, as a Facebook status, or as a blog post. (Add the specific FB status or post’s URL to the Mr. Linky list just under the prompt.)
5) If you write a blog post, please link back to this post. It makes it easier for me and the other Wordsters to find you.
6) You have one week to write your story and link up (The link stays open, so you can really submit stories whenever… this is the one rule I don’t really enforce.)

Possible narcotic withdrawal


This month we tried morphine as the percocets didn’t seem to be working. After a week it was painfully evident that the morphine was not going to be the better choice. I went back to the dr yesterday and asked for the percocets again. I had to turn in my remaining morphine pills and was told that was all I needed for the insurance to cover the second prescription in 30 days.

Well they didn’t send it. And so I left a message for the drs nurse and she must have sent the script, but she didn’t add the note that they confiscated my remaining morphine so the insurance is refusing to fill it. The pharmacy will call tomorrow and see what they can do and it will probably be between the dr and the insurance company, but in the meantime I am going to run out of the few percocets I have remaining.

I have been taking these for about a year and a half so I gather I am probably hooked on them and besides I need them for the pain.

Thanks to the people who abuse pain medicine those of us who need them have issues sometimes getting them and face possible withdrawal. The pain is bad enough without having to fight for the right to get the medication I need.

Tripping over one’s own feet!


Last night I tripped and landed on my hands and knees on my concrete floor that is covered with a very thin carpet with no padding underneath. Once recovered from the shock of the fall I sat there in pain and not able to move at first. Eventually it started to become less painful, but I can’t get up off the floor without help. I was able to reach my walker and pulled it to me, but it wasn’t strong enough to pull up on so then I tried the heavy coffee table that was in the area, I drug myself over and then spent what felt like hours trying to pull myself up on the table. I finally felt myself get a grip and I pulled myself onto my terribly bruised knees and then pulled myself up trying not to let go. I made it eventually.

Now today I am in a  lot of pain and not just the knees from slamming into the floor, but the rest of my pain ridden body.
