I wanted to be sure to recognize two blog posts that helped to cheer me up this morning. The first one appeared on my reading list, and I couldn’t figure it out from the title. As I read Poppy the Puppy’s post, I had quite a few chuckles. I even managed not to get upset about the word verification and solved the CAPTCHA after 2 tries, which was a good thing haha!!
After I got caught up with my reading list, I went back to the screen readers singing Christmas songs over on Vomit Comet, and I got really teary and cried to the Christmas Canon. Make sure you listen to that one. It’s the prettiest I have ever heard screen readers sound. I was also emotional thinking of all the work Carin had put into the post, and really missing her emails and blog posts, since she’s visiting family. I suppose I miss Steve too, though he thinks I like Carin better 😉
As I was listening to the Christmas Canon, I just felt really grateful for screen readers. Since I’ve been using mine a year, I think I often take it for granted. And listening to them sing, made me realize just how much joy screen readers bring to me and my fellow blinks.
So I’ve enjoyed my day so far. After working out I listened to Harry Potter some more and then took a shower. Tomorrow my Dad is picking me up to go to Gamma’s. It’s the first time he’ll pick me up since I went blind, so that will be fun. B is meeting us after work. My friend Sarah framed a picture of me doing my solo, and wrapped it up, one each for my Grandma, Dad, Uncle and B. So that will be nice. I didn’t get cards. I forget that sort of thing these days. Out of sight, ut of mind. We’re just eating ham sandwiches, but I’m wearing my red dress hehe! Christmas day, B volunteered to work a 3 hour shift at a group home for his company, so to give a break to the people who normally work there, since group homes don’t take holidays. So we’ll open presents before he goes to work. He asked if I want him to wrap the presents, but I’m indifferent. Not much point, really lol! He has gotten me a few things, so I feel bad about only getting him one thing, but I think it’s a good thing. I had another idea today, but it’s too late now. Maybe I’ll order it anyway.
That’s it from me today. If I don’t blog again, have a happy and merry Christmas, whichever way you are celbrating, if you’re celbrating 🙂
