A New Thing

 

- a little ramble in rhyme to pass the time and keep my head occupied... preceded by a load of unrelated blabla; sorry...

 

I'm on a serious loop of boredom lately... there's really nothing going on except the same every day:

 

I do my usual morning little routine where I sweep the floor area around the litter box; do the litter box and empty the wastebaskets; go to the bathroom; then wash teeth, hands, face, brush hair, or cover it all in a shower; start the kettle; feed the cats; do my first set of physio exercises of the day; take meds and supplement; do the dishes; and then sit on my bed with my drink and check all I need to check online (DB's, logs, emails)...

 

I do this routine to force myself to keep engaged and to move even though moving is quite problematic with the pains in my loose joints which haven't been doing too well in the last 2 years... it's worsened in the last year.  But that's it... day in, day out.  Some days I add appointments to get to or errands, which are also problematic 'cause then I have to add recovery time from the walking.  I hate to say it, but I'm completely emotionally and physically exhausted...

 

Every day consists of me spending it wholly alone here in my room finding ways to distract my time...  'cause, well, I can't do much that involves moving around, so I'm bound home... and I'm already so isolated...  there really isn't anyone around... it's one of the consequences of nearly 30 years of my issues with social phobias, agoraphobia, et al., I think... people tend to drift away after a while of no-contact... And now that my kids have gone to start off their independent lives last year, my space definitely feels heavily empty... And my douce moitié finally a legal resident in my country and able to work, he's out of the house a good portion of the day now to be at work... so there's a load more alone time for me lately... 

 

but I'm feeling like I have nothing interesting to talk about... case in point, I've just told you all that boring stuff up there, and I'm following it with a rhyming ditty about my recent acquisition of a new phone... the excitement is really too much ;) ... 

 

 

Of course I love technology.

However, its applications

Get on my nerves seriously...

 

There're the thoughtless implementations

Which create conflicts around practicality,

Or gimmicks to tie you in for infinity...

 

That part causes me serious misery,

So I avoid at all costs its implications

To ensure I retain as much of my sanity...

 

But of course the unfortunate day arrived finally

My Android 6's battery lost all negotiations;

Had to concede, time for the figurative cemetery...

 

My phone would work plugged in only

Which defeats the purpose of mobilisation

These neat little devices are designed to be...

 

So I had to embark on the reality

Of having to search for new options.

A few days of looking, along with anxiety...

 

It's the endless types of phones, deals, really;

Seems they'll think of every iteration

To make it as inconvenient as can be...

 

But Eureka! I found something for me

Which is the best suitable solution.

Here I find myself joining the iPhone family...

 

I'm still blown away at how so very pricey (!)

These gadgets are; hard to find justifications.

Mais voilà, I've finally entered this century...

 

Apparently.

Sort of a quest, well told.
