Bob and I needed to have separate PCs. I did my normal stuff and he loved to play games; our computer use times could be a large conflict if we only had one. My computer desk is in the office and we put his in the kitchen. For about 18 months after he passed away I used both computers, but when I got back from France I decided to just use "mine", in the office. This month I got tired of looking at the large oak computer desk, PC and printer that were no longer necessary, and I ordered a small, white, mission-style desk that will essentially be a large telephone stand. Yes, I'm old; I still have a house phone and extensions in every room, plus the garage.
I reserved yesterday for putting the desk together. After un-boxing the parts and verifying that all the components were accounted for, I got to work. I'm patient, I've been a seamstress for over 50 years, I make quilts, but I wasn't strong enough to put everything together. I called for help.
One of my neighbors had told me, right after Bob passed away, to call him if I ever needed help with anything. So, I called him, almost two years after he made the offer. He came over and after about an hour with both of us working/engineering we got the desk finished.
I had been to the TVMQG Christmas Party the evening before, and when I got home I put the leftover "crack on a plate" into two Christmas tins. I gave him one of those as a thank you.
Today, I added the charging station for my devices to the desk, I'm going to get more use of this than I thought.
Now, I about the village; we moved to Murrieta, to a 55+ gated community over 18 years ago. It was a great decision for us. There are a lot of activities and residents can participate in as many or as few as they want. This is where I volunteer to teach Tai Chi and Qigong. I took over the class when the founder of the class could no longer teach. Next month will mark 15 years of teaching Tai Chi twice a week, for free.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
