Brought to you by the letter U

I really like having a laptop. It's just so much more convenient to be able to use it wherever I choose. With two pets (especially a cat) I find that it gets very dusty and for several days I lost my letter U. Since that letter is in my last name and used frequently it was really a pain to have to hit it several times or go back and add it because it was missing later. I am not supposed to use any cleaners of any kind, particularly inhalants. I had to wait until Rob had time to do this for me. It took about three days. I mean the guy does work full time and then has to do a lot of things around the house I can no longer do. It's frustrating for me to have to wait and ask people for help. I would so much rather be doing things myself. I remember seeing people with oxygen tanks and never thinking of what their lives were like. It's just so inconvenient and frustrating to find myself walking ten feet and feeling a tightness in my chest and realizing I am already out of breath.

We went to Applebees last night. I had hoped to go to Kohl's afterwards but I had rehab yesterday and I was so tired that we had to come home. I did have a great dinner salad. It looks like the sun is finally back. If the temperatures warm up I think my lungs will be better. The dampness and cold have been a real problem.

Is anyone besides me watching American Idol? My neighbor Stacey does and we discuss it the following day. She is always offering to drive me places and help me. I don't take her up on it but just her offering means so much. I am truly blessed with good neighbors here. Time for breakfast. Wishing you a bright and sunshiney day.

I smiled when I read your post about the letter U. My problem is with the letter Z. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I haven't watched Idol since Paula left as a judge. I hear it's good this year, though. I hope warmer temps really help your lungs and give you a chance to feel better.
