It was only 17 days wait, but it seemed an eternity. I got my new computer today. My desk was rather dusty and unused. I missed it.
Now I can go online, but I have no favorites, no bookmarks, no cookies, no files, and no programs. My desktop (the virtual one) is very blank.
I’m not complaining. OK, I am. I’ve been moaning all day.
In other news, I just placed an order online for Christmas presents for the family. I think this is a record for me. I’ve been thinking about Christmas since last Christmas. Decided we’re taking a vacation to (whisper whisper). Sorry, my kids often read my blog, so I can’t speak any louder. It’s a bit south of here (but not much). The main gift is the trip, to be taken in January or February, but smaller gifts will be related to that trip. So I bought…again, my kids read my blog. Hmm. Colorful terry cloth. On sale, since the need for rectangles of colorful terry cloth is diminishing quickly as stores pull out their fall lineups.
Fall. Long sleeves. Right now, it seems so unfathomable. I can sort of imagine temperatures below 90. But below 80 is tough.
Bill has taken a few days off, so my intent to start school today was blithely put aside for next week. The public schools start on Wednesday. Despite that, it’s really hard to get in the mood.
And having a broken computer didn’t help my prep either. I’m just not ready.
