>Wrist pain, computer problems, vacations, work…AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!

>Yes, I’ve endured all these problems within the past two months–and I’m ready to pull my hair out.

My laptop monitor is dying a slow death and is ocassionally going black on me. As of right now, it’s flickering. When I turn it on, I get a reddish-pinkish tint to it. I’ve had it for four years, so I guess that’s to be expected. I’m now having to scramble to get a new laptop, which is also hectic because I hate spending money in these lean times.
A few weeks ago, I woke up with horrible right wrist pain. I went to the doctor and I was told that it’s due to my occupation. I was ordered to take 20-minute breaks for every two hours I worked on the computer. However, the pain was so much that I just gave up any unnecessary typing (which includes blogging, e-mails, etc.) just to give my wrist a break.
Finally, I took two amazing trips to Boston and Key West. Sure, vacations are fun and gives you an opportunity to relax and reflect. But, no one tells you that vacations can be stressful. With all the traveling, driving and navigating around some foreign city, vacations can be just as nerve-wrecking as they are pleasant.
Now, that my wrist is better, I will definitely return to blogging. I’ve been reading many blogs, but not responding. Now, of course, all of this depends on how quickly my computer dies within the next few days. Right now, it’s not a problem, but I don’t want to take any chances…
