A few months ago I had to replace my keyboard. It was the one that came with my aging desktop but I was a bit lean on cash, so I got a cheapie replacement. I think it only cost me $12. From the day I started using it, I hated it. The backspace key was a small, single-character size and I would always, without fail, hit the “home” key which was right next to it. This would inevitably break my train of thought and send me off correcting things instead of just writing. I thought I would just adapt but I never did.
My awesome husband got me a new keyboard for Christmas, a nice, full-sized wireless model with a unified wireless mouse! So far it’s working great. Yes, I will always make dumb typos but for someone who only uses three fingers to type, I ain’t half bad and I am fairly quick.
I know it’s a small thing, but it’s important to be grateful for the little things too. Sometimes that is all that will get you through a day. A new keyboard might not be that big of a deal, but for me this represents one less minor aggravation. It makes me happy that my husband did this one thing that will make my writing projects just a bit more simple to accomplish.
Thank you sweetheart, I love you.
