You know what? I don’t really like computers and they don’t really like me. Truthfully, I have issues with anything that plugs in. I seem to have some sort of magnetic field around me that destroys any electronic device within one mile.
In August, my lap top died. So we went out and bought another one and I was so happy. I had dreams. Dreams of writing and computering and being productive. But this new computer, it is a big piece of poo. And frankly, I don’t know if it is IBM ThinkPad, Lenovo or Vista or me but all combined none of it works worth a flip. This machine makes dial up look zippy. I have had more problems with it than I could list here or that you probably want to hear about, although I’m really in the mood to whine right now. All that to say, since we brought this new computer home, every ounce of creative mental energy I have has been spent cursing in my head — cursing IBM, Lenovo and Bill Gates. Sometimes I change up the order.
So then. In about five minutes this pile of plastic crud will be boxed up and returned from whence it came. After that I’m not sure what I’m going to do, but I’ll think of something.
In other news, I’m taking the Love and Logic parenting course and I gotta tell you, it’s working. I wish I’d taken it several years ago. Anyone else out there taken this course? If so, leave me a comment and tell me about your experience.
