I am at Michele's right now. I drove all the way up here just to use her computer..... No, not really. The kids have early release on Wednesday, so it seemed like a fun afternoon activity to drive up and see the progress they have made on their home. When I have my laptop back, I will upload pictures that I took today. In the meantime, here is my ODE TO MY LAPTOP - something I am going to write straight from the cuff, so I apologize in advance..........
LAPTOP, MY LAPTOP, OH HOW I MISS YOU
I HOPE THE TECHNICIANS HAVE NOT ABUSED YOU
I LONG FOR THE DAYS YOU REST ON MY LAP
PURRING LIKE A KITTEN TAKING A NAP
IN THE MEANTIME, I AM SO FAR BEHIND
QUITE HONESTLY, IT FEELS, I'M LOSING MY MIND
THE EMAILS TO SEND, BANK ACCOUNTS TO REVIEW
BLOGS TO UPDATE, HOT GOSSIP TO PURSUE
THE MORNING "I-CHAT" TALKING WITH JOHN
OUR COMMUNICATION IS FAILING NOW THAT YOU'RE GONE
AND THE INSTANT MESSENGER, FRIENDS - I HAVEN'T FORGOT
WITHOUT ENCOURAGEMENT FROM YOU, I FEEL QUITE BESOUGHT
I WENT TO WORKOUT AND CONSIDERED A CHANGE UP IN TUNES
BUT WITH OUT MY COMPUTER, THIS PLAN IS DOOMED
DUCK SCHEDULE UPDATES, WEATHER FORECASTS,
ALL THIS INFO I'M MISSING, HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
DON'T GET ME STARTED WITH SHOPPING ONLINE
ONLY 89 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS TIME!
SO, DEAR LAPTOP I HOPE THAT NOW YOU WILL KNOW
JUST HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME, please DON'T EVER AGAIN GO!
