so much for cute geek technicians

I’m on my laptop, which doesn’t have half the software that I need to so stuff that I want to do. But my other computer still isn’t working right. I guess the cute young guy who said he fixed my machine was as incompetent as he was adorable. Maybe it’s time to junk my old machine and start over. Blech!
Meanwhile, I know there’s all kinds of stuff going on among various blogger friends that I wish I had the energy to reach out and do more than link to. But I’m so tired. Tired of using every ounce of energy to be patient with my mother, who insists that she can hear just fine and see just fine, despite the fact that all of her medical exams show that such is not the case. Tired of not having technology that does even the simple things that I want it to do without locking up everything else. Tired of having all kinds of ideas that I want to write about and not having the solitude to think those ideas through and craft them into actual sentences that might interest someone.
Man, I’m outta here. Gonna take a hot shower and try to figure out what to do. What to do. What to do. Next.

  1. Thanks Shelley! I just sent you a long email. I have a feeling that my other machine is a lemon and it’s not even worth trying to make lemonade out of it. I’ll wait and see what you email back. I think we need to name you the Warrior Princess of Blogdom.

  2. get some rest, elaine. maybe a little break from technology is what you need right now–unless of course someone can design some sound-proof comfortable ear muffs for your mother to wear to sleep at night. šŸ˜‰ Seriously, have you thought of a “white noise” machine for her? They’re about 40 or 50 bucks last time i checked (i used to have one) and they blast ambiant noise with a kind of soft wavey sound or the sound like you’re on an airplane. May help her tune her ears away from the neighbors. Also a humidifier with a good woosh can do wonders, but it’s hard to find just the right sound. The small vicks cool mist humidifier that i have in jenna’s room has a nice wooshy hum. But you’d have to change the water each night, so I vote for a white noise machine.
