I had planned to get up and have a relaxing morning since I didn't have to get the younger kids outta the house. Leisurely breakfast, steady work, a couple of breaks before the duties and responsibilities of parenting kicked in. That all went a little awry after I remembered (read: looked at my calendar) and saw I had a doctor's appointment at 11 a.m.
I woke up late, wolfed down some food, rushed out of the house and made it to my appointment on time. Since I was at the Veteran's hospital I decided to take care of some other business and appointments, which resulted in me leaving there at about 2 p.m. That's 20 minutes before my son gets off the bus. Luckily my oldest daughter was at home to get him off of the bus and I rushed to get the 4 year old. I went home to eat my late lunch, sat for about 10 minutes then went to the bank (the errand I forgot) and on to pick up my 2-year-old daughter.
On the way back home the sky opened all the way up and people drove like they had absolutely no sense. This is the first time I had the chance to sit down at the computer....
Speaking of computers...
It looks like mine is about to kick the bucket. My laptop has decided to... well, I don't know what it's doing. My computer genius best friend can't get it to do anything (he works on it remotely) and it doesn't respond even to me. Right in the same room.
HUGE GIGANTIC SUPER SIGH! No Windows Live Writer, no saved passwords, no ... well, you get the point. If I don't figure out something before my daughter goes back to college I am going to be up the creek without a paddle. Without a boat.
There are some old computers here and the best friend said he put Windows XP on one so I'll have to check it out and see. But then I think I'll be without FireFox and, once again, Windows Live Writer.
This isn't supposed to be a vent; just a review of what's going on. I'm tired just reading it. I better get to work and figure out what I am doing. It's a little difficult to concentrate right now 'cause my son is whining, my daughter is picking at her food, the other daughter is getting down instead of eating and the teenager is talking to everyone. Talk about a little distracted.
How's your day going?
