My computer! She’s back! And, yes, it’s super annoying to have to re-establish everything I’ve done on it in the past two months, but I’m already re-establishing everything else in my horrible, horrible house, so I might as well do it for my computer too.
Now that I’m back and can function (honestly, I feel an almost literal weight coming off my shoulders sitting at MY desk typing on MY laptop), I’ll have the capacity to answer the hundreds of emails that have accumulated in my inbox, as well as write delightfully fanciful posts about Sam’s birthday (TEN!), my kids’ schools, a talk about autism I gave to Jack’s class, jury duty (weird: Algernon was called for jury duty THE VERY SAME DAY!), and that floor situation.
If you want proof of why I haven’t had time to write about any of those things yet, well, I present to you this photo of what my living room looked like two days ago:
I also want to tell you about a new thing I’m doing over on my Facebook page. Every day that I don’t write something here, I’ll put up a link on the Stimeyland Facebook page to a post that I wrote on that date, but in a previous year. I am doing this mostly because it entertains me to read old posts, but maybe if you showed up more recently, you might like to read some older posts. Or not. Whatever. Yesterday I put up a link to a post about a birthday party I threw for Sam two years ago. It was a great party—including when Alex dropped Quinn with a well-aimed soccer ball to the shins.
Okay. I’m going to spend the next 45 minutes putting all the crap that I recently took out of my desk back into my desk. That sounds like so much fun. >:-[
