I guess there are lots of things that I can do without my beloved computer. You see, the day before last I learned I had a really nasty computer virus. I took it to the Geek guys at my local computer store. For some reason, I no longer had anti-viral protection and bam–a new and very insidious virus got me! I miss my computer terribly. I almost feel naked without the thing. I have been using the one at the libary and it’s just not the same. I don’t like the keyboard for one, and well…I can’t sit and sip Dark Cheery Frappacinos here, either. But I can still get a bit of writing in and check my email all in the 45 minute time period I am allowed. No pressure, right?
Yesterday, without my computer, I was able to plant flowers and save a little time by not looking at Facebook. I baked a real cake and went to yoga. I considered reorganizing my baking gear but instead used a tablet of paper to map out ideas for my next writing project. Talk about old-fashioned–a notebook and pen??! Who knew they still existed, right?
I know I’ll get my computer back and things will be good as new. I hope–I spent enough money to get the darn thing runnning again. I’ll make a cognizant decision to be more efficient with my computer…I’ll pretend I only have 45 minutes each session I sit down and log on just like I do at the library. Maybe I’ll save time and money because I won’t spend as much on Facebook and considering what to buy on-line. No more Amazon or Pottery Barn Kids. Good-bye outdoorrugs.com and homedecorators.com
Here’s what else I’m thinking: A back-to-school ice cream social is on the calendar for August…oh, how I love to party-plan! Daytime TV is such a waste (really, who needs to know about baby foxes and how to fry clams?!). And I hope my nail polish matches my dress. Yeah, nothing very cerebral today. Hopefully that will change when I get mycomputer back. Come on, Geek Guys my brain is atrophy-ing here!
And that is what is on my brain today, Thursday June 24th.
