These last three years have been so different. I used to need to read before I could fall asleep. I haven't read much of anything since Mr. Ralph died.
Today I opened my Kindle (on my iPhone) and saw that I haven't bought a book since he passed. I used to read one every month or two. So I bought a book! It's like a whole new life again.
Interestingly, several of my widow buddies report the same thing. What is that all about? Also, I haven't watched a movie all at one time. Mostly I do TV series on Netflix or Amazon. My attention span is just kaput. Maybe Year Four will open up these doors again. Have any of you widows/widowers experienced this?
Today I spent an hour or so helping (trying anyway) her to connect to Netflix and Amazon. Then we tried to use her new accounts on her smart TV ... but between the two of us we screwed up her TV so she had to invest time on the phone to get it back working. Sorry, buddy! (I know she still loves me ... I'm babysitting her pride and joy puppy!)
Another boost to my reading .. she gets the local newspaper!
