First, to all of you who have blogged the past few days, I’m sorry I haven’t kept up. I’m a pediatric nurse and those of you who know me, know that winter is our worst season. For awhile, it looked like we were going to get off easy. But the RSV/Rotovirus/etc. season has hit with a vengeance. Plus, for the second year in my life, I did my own taxes. A six-week project that gave me nightmares. But now, my taxes are in (though I’m still not sure they’re accurate) and I NEED the blog to help me keep my sanity through the rest of the winter illnesses I deal with each day. So for my blog today, I’m going to just free-assosciate, here.
I want to tell all the guests who’ve been joining us on our ramblings, I appreciate the way you read and comment on our blog. To me, it’s like welcome company in the house. Thank you. Have some cyber-brownies and lemonade. 🙂 It’s always been a mystery to me why people would want to read a blog. (No doubt that is why I so bad at keeping up my personal blog on my web page at www.jackiekramer.com ) Now Twitter…that I can get my brain around except for some of the inane comments people write. After all, would you really want to hear all about me brushing my teeth? But the challenge of writing philosophy or parody or a sly remark in such a small space intrigues me. That I might do consistently.
Oh, and I forgot to tell you…part of the reason why I haven’t been emailing or coming to the blog so often is that my laptop died. I bought used and don’t grieve for it, but boy, I really miss the Wi-Fi that let me sit in my recliner while doing both. But do not despair; I’ve ordered a new Dell laptop. I almost have my PC paid off, so figured I could afford to get new this time. I’m getting a colored one, Midnight Blue, with a 320 GB hard drive! Can you imagine…320 GB!!? Dang, I remember getting excited about a 386 MGB drive. Times are sure a’changin’! Only trouble is they won’t have it built and shipped until the end of the month. And I finally have to go to Microsoft Vista. Yecch! And I have a new computer to get used to.
Can you blame me for being distracted with all this going on in my life? Oh, and that doesn’t even count how little writing I’m actually getting down. 🙂
