I am learning, the hard way, that electronics (especially computers) can be troublesome pieces of equipment. I am also coming to realize I might be slightly addicted to my laptop and I am lost when it is on the fritz. My husband laughed when he read the word – slightly. I am not sure why…..okay, maybe I know why.
For the last couple days our laptop has the annoying habit of just shutting down while in the middle of important tasks. This is so irritating when I am in the middle of typing something amazingly profound for a blog post.
I am not often profound so when I am having a really deep thought I need to just keep going with it. Profoundness (or is it profundity?) should never be interrupted….especially for something like electronic issues. Maybe if I knew anything about computers it would not be such an issue?
For this reason I am a day late on my blog posting. It does make me wonder if God knew how busy this week would turn out to be and how many weird, non-normal things my husband and I would run into. Everything from relatives in the hospital to rainstorms that sent us over 4 inches of rain in one afternoon have guaranteed that our week was kind of out of sync.
I have decided to cut myself some slack on making my deadline and receive the extra day as a gift. I have a feeling that many of us could use a day of no computers and time to focus on family, friends, rain and just taking the time for a big sigh.
The computer issue also insures that this will be a short blog post due to the fact I have no idea how long it will stay working. I think the problem is in the part where the power cord plugs into the computer. The battery has long since died and we have just been keeping it plugged in.
Once I get the thing up and running I sit very very still so as not to jostle the cord. I may have to take it to a computer doctor to have it properly diagnosed and see if a 5 year old laptop is worth fixing or if it should be on the “do not resuscitate” list.
If I do not reply to a comment or leave a comment on your post; you will now know the reason why. I do not mean to ignore you…..in fact when the computer is being pesty I really miss keeping in touch! So many of you I will probably never meet in person, but I have come to think of you as friends.
May you have a blessed weekend!
To err is human –
and to blame it on a computer is even more so.
