A lap full of help


She’s actually small enough that she fits underneath the desktop, on my lap.  I’m sitting in the chair with my legs crossed in order to support her comfortably.  Her comfort.  Not mine.  I’m reminded that while I’m still pretty young, I’m not as young and flexible as I used to be.  I think my foot has actually gone to sleep.

Computer stuff

You would think that for as long as I’ve been doing computer stuff I would know just how stinking long everything takes to do.  At least 10 times longer than I think it’s going to.

I had a nice quiet house today while I did some of my computer stuff.  I had to play the piano for a funeral this morning, and the boys got to go to my sister-in-law’s house while I did that.  When I went to pick them up she said they could stay for awhile!  They were keeping her two entertained and out of her hair, so it worked well for all involved.

We tried to go bowling tonight.  I meant to take my camera so I could get some bowling shots, but it wouldn’t have mattered.  We had supper at the bowling alley first, but it disagreed with me (supper, not the bowling alley).  The boys brought me home and then went back.  And 5 minutes later they were home again.  Turns out it was league night.  Phooey.
