I’m Back

I have a new computer. I am very impressed with the speed of Staples getting my laptop ready.

One thing I don’t like: that my computer comes pre-programmed with so much advertising. I couldn’t even get solitaire without a Microsoft account. Seriously? I feel so target marketed.

This experience only reinforces my determination to use my resources more wisely. I plan on doing a lot less diddling around on this computer and focusing on learning how to use Access. I got Office Professional because I want to make myself more valuable. Who would you rather hire: someone with a tablet or someone with a laptop complete with the whole shebang of MS Office? Being minimalist isn’t just about spending less money, but more about spending money more on things with strategic importance.

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
