A few weeks ago while working on my blog on my laptop the view somehow got changed where it shows that when I am trying to post it is in HTML View instead of Compose View and I cannot get it back to the regular view. I have no issues with trying to post with my iPad or Surface. I cannot seem to fix the problem on my laptop.
About six weeks ago I changed my truck for an SUV. I loved the truck but I was going to need something more convenient. One of these days I might have to drive mom somewhere and a different vehicle with some creature comforts would be easier. Coming back from visiting I was about twenty kilometres from where I live and the SUV suffered mechanical failure and stranded me. I bought it used, had it checked out, took it on a couple of trips to Saskatchewan and was generally happy with it. Everything worked until it did not. The next day I had it towed to a shop. I really do not want to get into specifics other than fixing it was not cheap. In the meantime I got my winter beater out of storage so I could remain mobile.
Over ten days ago my best friend that I have known since high school informed me via text that he was positive for COVID. He works shift work, usually four twelves. Getting our schedules to match up is hit and miss and I had not seen him in person all that recently. There was a report of COVID at his kid’s school and he thinks he might have caught it from them. I jokingly said that since he has it I should start taking applications and interviewing for a new friend in case he did not survive. This was days ago.
Last Sunday night, after the SUV stranding me, I got the shills and cold sweats that continued into Monday. Tuesday I was a lot better and have been getting better through the week. I picked up a cold from somewhere. I do not have COVID although I did recently get the shot at the beginning of September. That has caused some friction with a family member.
New COVID restrictions were announced for Alberta. I really been discouraged about planning any trips.
Last Thursday I received a text that I did not read until Friday morning. My phone was charging and I had ignored it for the night. In the morning I grabbed my coffee mug, turned on my coffeemaker, and checked my phone. His wife sent me a text from his phone saying she took him to emergency Thursday night. I read that and felt horrible. I phoned later in the morning and found out that they gave him IV fluids and were releasing him later in the day. He was dehydrated. He was deemed well enough to fight COVID at home. I was able to talk to him that evening. He sounds like someone suffering from a nasty flu. I doubt that he will be back at work anytime soon. The only funny thing about it is that he is on vacation.
I have been doing very little these last ten days.
