I'm baaaaa-ack! Did you miss me? Are you even still reading or did I lose all my readers? One of the worst things in the world to do to an Internet/blog addict is to take away their computer. I will tell you now that it was not pretty. One week without my online support system of bloggers just about did me in! I thought that without my computer time everyday, I would get all kinds of stuff done around the house. But no. I mostly just walked around in a trance with all the full blown withdrawal symptoms of a person addicted to much stronger things than technology.
So after taking the fried computer to the shop and finding out that the repair would be costly, I realized that I was going to be forced to buy a new laptop. And if you know me, you know that I HATE to spend money. I stress about spending money to no end. So a big purchase like this made me wish I was one of those people who just happened to have a Valium laying around the house.
Finally, I could take living like a pioneer no more. Today, Miles and I loaded up and went to Best Buy- which for me, is just a warehouse of indecision! Miles walked around and looked everything and said "uh-oh" and something that sounded like "Oh Damn!" to each of the salespeople. I am not sure what it is that he was trying to say, but I am pretty sure that he didn't intentionally cuss out the staff. They didn't take it personally, and helped us pick out a brand spankin' new laptop.
So now here were are, back on the grid! And it is sooooo good to back back! Forgive me if I write a million posts in the next few days trying to catch back up!
