I had to drive to two different big-box stores today to find what I thought would be an easy purchase. The driving was easy. Walking, even with the walker, from the parking lot to the inside of the store... that was hard. Really hard. To add insult to injury, nobody had what I needed. I got a sort-of workaround at the second store, which doesn't work around as well as it needs to. I'm going to have to go again to computer stores tomorrow. After going to the dentist. Man, the fun never ends.
I wanted to get this finished before my wife got back from ComicCon. Not like I didn't want her help, nothing like that, but I wanted to do it for her. A gift: making the studio better for her.
Well, she's gonna have to help me anyway. Pushing me around various computer stores to get cables--and it's going to have to be pushing me, because the walking is fading very, very rapidly. Pushing me around computer scores, after going to the dentist. (She's got an appointment too.)
Not as romantic as I had hoped, this "prepping the studio for her."
Well, at least I will (probably) be able to drive us to the dentist tomorrow.
You take your romance where you can get it, I guess.
At least the bloody box works. Not as well as I would like, but it does, mostly work. And I can still walk. Slowly. But I can still walk.
Again: you take what you can get.
