The written off Laptop

OK so I'm not doing the work I should be doing at the moment. I have two laptops on my desk, one is running scans and the other is downloading software for scans, and updating its scanning software. It occurred to me that my kid has been using my computer constantly and that my old laptop was sitting in a drawer where I had virtually written it off lacking the funds to have it fixed for her. The thing was making a horrid noise and overheating when I wrote it off and used my tax refund to buy a new one so I could continue to work.

I finally began reading other blogs and read about someone that had found a large dust bunny in thier daughter's computer. I decided it could not hurt to take it apart and look at least, so that's exactly what I did. The computer in question is now running without overheating. The only problem is that it is still in need of a keyboard, and my stuff has to be gotten off of it.

That is the next surprise for the kid. The pictures will be posted when the project of getting it child friendly is complete.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
