Forced Internet/Computer Break–Say What?

I’m stealing a few moments at the family computer because my net book is busted***(my grammarian children, who are looking over my shoulder, told me that “busted” is improper English. Okay. My computer is doggy poo-poo.*Disapproving glances*) . Yes, that’s right. The battery is dead, and the power cord stopped working. My husband, dear man that he is, immediately ordered me a new, longer lasting battery and a new power cord, but they will have to ship. Meanwhile, I will have little access to a computer, let alone internet because my children use this computer for their home school. My only consolation comes from my accomplishments for the day. I worked hard today to complete a word count of 1000 and wrote above and beyond that, before my cord breathed its last.

Okay, I’m going to read a book, now. I have a glorious gothic romance waiting for me. Sometimes, life must be unplugged. And by that I mean no Twitter, no Facebook, no Blogger or WordPress. Would you believe I have accounts with all of those?! I think God is trying to tell me something . . .

p.s. All the pictures above were done by my daughter, Emmie. Because I’m using the family computer, I thought, what the heck, I’ll steal some of Emmie’s drawings. As you can see, she’s an Irish dancer. Yeah, Irish dancers are a little weird, but I’ve got to live with them. We are an Irish dance family.



  1. It's amazing how attached we become to our gadgets. The power cord of my laptop has become the umbilical cord connecting me to the world. Hmmm…what does this mean for the future?

  2. Those are great Irish dancing pics! I love the Irish dancing, but it's amusing how stiff they keep their backs (and to an extent, their legs).

    Have a great week–and break!
