A Love/Hate Relationship with My Kindle

I am having a love/hate relationship with my Kindle.  I love my Kindle Fire.  I really do, but when it comes to posting to my blog or doing anything that requires writing, it sucks.  Plus, there are a lot of tablet apps I can't get because it's a Kindle and not your run-of-the-mill tablet. 

So, I've jacked the husband's puter to do a quickie post.  It's so much easier to write on this.  And I'm a happy camper because I found something very dear to me that I thought was lost forever. 

Back when I was writing for a living, I had everything I'd written on a flash drive. When I moved, I couldn't find it and I thought it was gone forever.  But I found it a couple days ago while looking for something else.  Ten years worth of stories, poems, and articles are on that drive.  I spent one whole night just going through it and re-reading some of the things I'd written in the past.  It was just what I needed.  It's another reason I'm on the computer instead of the Kindle, I can't put the drive in the Kindle.  But that's okay.

In my last post, I'd mentioned that I was working on opening a new online store.  I'm still working on that but don't have enough inventory to get it going yet.  Well, I probably do, but don't have all the info needed to post the pictures yet.  I've been making keychains that are pretty cool.  My mom's been making brooches and a few other little things for the store, plus she's got a lot of gently loved items we're going to add.  I just need to get the specs for them in order to get them up for sale.  I wanted to have this store open by now, but I also want it to be a nice site and not just a junk shop.  LOL

So stay tuned.  I see some wonderful things in my future and I really hope you'll come along for the ride with me.  Plus, if I fall, you'll get a good laugh out of it and that's okay too.  I've always said that if I can make at least one person smile each day---or pee just a little---my day's been a success.  :) 


  1. LOL, well then my day is complete. Love you Sister

  2. That's like striking gold finding all that old writing work!

    I have a love/hate with my Kindle as well, mostly because I love the access to books, but hate not having pages to turn and hold. Sigh . . .

  3. Lol it was like striking gold. And if I had as many books in my house as I have on my Kindle, I'd have to get a bigger place. Lol
