The Dead Laptop Battery Blues

So my laptop died last week. I come to you via the old, slow desktop in the basement. I don't often get the chance to sneak down to the basement to use this computer, thus the lack of emailing and blogging from me for the past few days. I can't upload pictures on this computer for some reason, so all you are getting from me today is a boring, photo-less post about how I can't wait for my new laptop battery to get here.

On the same token, I have to admit that this break from my laptop has been very, very refreshing. I've realized just how much time I spent on my computer on any given day, and I'm determined to have different Internet parameters going forward. I think as a stay-at-home mom, it is really easy to get sucked in to an open laptop, dozens of times throughout the day. It is a good distraction, gives me a mental break, and really, it can break up the monotony and a tough day. However, without this distraction, I've gotten a lot more done, and I've spent my time in a much wiser fashion. So, we'll see what happens when the UPS man arrives with the box from Dell. Sigh.

I'm obviously behind the 8-ball on all sorts of blogging though - - such as the annual Cherry Festival, and my sweet baby boy's 6th birthday. So, lots of pictures to follow in the coming days.

**Sigh** I am sorry about the dead battery situation...I cannot imagine being unable to access as much as I do daily. I think you do a great job blogging as much as you do, as busy as your days are. I find that the internet is a life line to be sure. Will be awaiting photos of the birthday boy...
