A week or so ago I was contemplating how I would fare should I decide to try going for an entire day without turning my computer on. As I write this, I will admit that it sounds a bit ridiculous to think it would be difficult to accomplish this ~ I mean, one day ~ how hard could that be? I considered trying it, but to be honest I didn't like the thoughts of being away from all of you. You all add so much to my days. So the contemplating remained a mere thought.
A mere thought until Saturday night when it became reality. That was when my husband let me know that the laptop had a virus. We went to bed as the computer was being scanned for evil invaders. Sunday morning I got up with high hopes, but they were quickly dashed when the problems were discovered, but not solved. Egads, Sunday was a looong day :).
Monday I happily went to work and could hardly wait for lunchtime so that I could check e-mails and do a bit of blogging. Thankfully a computer savvy co-worker offered to see if he could solve the problem.
Tuesday I was home and the computer was still at the office being worked on. Seems the problem is a big one, but cheerful co-worker is still working on it. Meanwhile, on the home front I am keeping busy, but feeling a bit cut off from the world. That would be the blog world to be precise :). Miss you all. I was also surprised at how often I jump on the internet to look up a recipe, look for an address, etc. I think I discovered I'm more dependent on the computer than I thought. Yikes!! This can't be good, can it?
Here we are at Wednesday night and I was at the office today so I caught up a bit at lunch, but I had to leave the computer at work again. Friendly co-worker is trying something else that has to run through the night. I have my fingers crossed that order will be restored tomorrow and Mr. Laptop will be returning home. I am using my son's computer for this post.
I now know that I can get through a day or two or three without the computer, but ... I would prefer not to.
I'm hoping to be back to regular blogging soon ~ fingers crossed.
