PINING FOR MY PUTER!!!!

This weekend when I turned on my pc to my morning ritual of checking emails, reading blogs etc...Well, it wasn't doing anything! Whaaa...Call my trusty hubby who is my hero , to look at it. He tryed with all his merth and mite but alas he could do nothing. It was a case of taking it to the puter hospital. Thankfully it was still on the guarantee!

My baby needs a new hard drive. It thankfully won't cost me a thing except maybe MY SANITY!!...I won't have it back for atleast 8 days...if lucky!

I am currently using Chris' pc downstairs. So I can atleast check my stuff down here evenings. Why only evenings? you may ask. Well the whole reason for getting a laptop a few yrs ago was because we had our blind client move in then. He is severely mentally handicapped, blind, mute and epileptic. I have to be near him all the time. So I can"t just leave him alone while I come downstairs to be on the computer. Hense getting myself a laptop to entertain myself during the day. I HATE daytime tv so atleast I amuse myself on my laptop doing lots of things etc.

My blind man can walk so if he gets up , to go to the bathroom for instance, I have to make sure he doesn't hurt himself getting there. Although has a good idea where it is, he still walks into walls or forgets where he was going lol...one day , I was just on the deck so I was a second to late when he got up really quickly and turned the wrong way and walked towards the front door instead...there is a 2 step down to the door. I wasn't fast enough to prevent his fall down those 2 short steps ...and he unfortunately broke his hip. It was horrible...Needless to say, although I am always near by, u can understand that I will still try to avoid accidents at all cost. I can come down here when he is in bed, we have a protective baby fence in the hallway once he is there, so it prevents him from coming to the living room area...but still allows him to go to the bathroom across the hall from his room if he needs too.

So I will be on less in the next week...I feel almost lost without my laptop infront of me in the living room upstairs lol. How pathetic is that! I also have my whole list of must read blogs on my favorites in my sick pc..not on this computer...It's my own fault for not doing a blog roll on my own page but I still have no desire to have one there...my list is huge and when I do remove some at times due to non activity or cutting back I would hate to hurt anyones feelings if they noticed so I just avoid that by doing it elsewhere. So to all my blog friends, if I don't drop by in the next week or so, know it's only because I am missing my list lol. I will try to visit, via the comments I recieve in the limited time I will be on but many don't comment here so it will be impossible to go see u , sorry....

We get so used to our routines that when something happens to change it we are struck with how we rely on them when they aren't there.

Good thing I have some good books I've been meaning to read lol.
Hope to see u soon!!

Got to love those routines. Also got to love those laptops.. mines with me in the loungeroom, so that i hang with the family, and they can use the main computer.
