I'm back!... or rather, my computer is.*

Since my last post, things here have escalated into the super-fast speed lane, and among the myriad of other things happening recently, my computer died. Even Sir couldn't revive it for me this time. He did take it apart and copy the hard drive in case the warranty people would have to wipe it clean though. That would have resulted in me losing the mazes of notes and projects that I was in the middle of. Then he drove hours to deliver it to the warranty repair place and we left it in their hands for five days before it was ready for pick up. 'You know that saying, 'You don't know how much you use something until it's broken'? Well! I thought I just wasted time on my computer (and I'm sure I do that too..) but I definitely missed my 'brain' section of it. Packing notes, recipes, letters, pictures... I had time to do stuff and WASN'T able do the filing or organizing part of it! I know, I suffer so... now I have a lot of catch up to do, but my computer is back and I can use it again!!!

Ok, my timer has gone off, and I have work to get back to. I definitely don't have enough time to write out the novel of events that is swirling around in my head currently, right now.

* edit 5 hrs later:
So I worked all morning, stopped to check my e-mail, got busy with the kids, decided I was too tired to do anything on my computer after lunch and took a nap. When I woke up, I sent a message to Sir, telling him I was up from my nap and he could call when he left work like he usually does, stopped to give Emma a snack, came back and found myself staring into the dead face of my computer again!

Note to self: Maybe do not get overly excited about getting computer back. Lesson might not be over. :)
