Freehanding with a Sharpie: not recommended


I have been folding boxes every day—I’m up to Box 47 as of today—but I got so far behind in blogging them that catching up grew rather daunting. If you’re interested in the ones I’ve been doing, you can visit my Instagram page:

I may start blogging them again, but I make no guarantees.

I’m still running behind on “blogging” these. I’m up to day 30 in real time, but I got sick (nothing serious) the latter part of the week and didn’t have the energy for much else than folding them and posting them on Twitter snd Instagram. I’ll catch up eventually.

Day 26



I’m running a little behind due to computer kerfluffles. I spent most of Sunday and a call to the Helpdesk trying to download OS 12.1 Monterey and get it to finish configuring. That should not have happened. It might have been because I didn’t bother with OS 11 and there was a lot to plow through. It kept getting stuck at the same point. I’d turn it off and on and it would start running again and get stuck at the same point. “Less than one minute left” turned into an hour, etc. The helpful Helpdesk guy got me unstuck and back to square one and told me to let it run for at least an hour and go have dinner and that’s what I did. But my desktop didn’t come back up until around 9 p.m. I was very relieved to see it. By that time, however, I was so fried I didn’t want to start trying to set up my new HP wireless printer (which prompted the download in the first place). The next day I spent hours trying to make it work. I had to put the IP address into the print window for it to work at all and whenever I tried to print it would print one line of gibberish then start spitting page after page of blank paper. I went through all the online trouble-shooting before I tried to contact the HP Helpdesk. To talk to a live person they required me to input the serial number of my new device so I went to the back of the printer and wrote down the serial number, checking it twice with a magnifying glass, and input it. “That serial number does not appear to be valid.” So I checked it a third time, with a magnifying glass. Re-input. Not valid.  My options at this point were emailing them, checking in with the online forum, or go back to the unhelpful chat bot. So I gave up instead. My Epson wireless printer was so easy to configure and I’d still be using it if the black ink cartridge hadn’t stopped working. Lots of trouble shooting involved there, too. Since I rarely need anything printed out that has to look official, I think I’ll hook it back up and print the few things I need in brown ink or something. See if that works. I would send the HP back but I have this ridiculous habit of letting things sit in the front hall after they’re delivered and I missed the 14 day return window. I suck.
