back to basics

I had to take my loaned laptop in today for repair or virus erasing. Seems I did tell Hubby NOT to download the porno on my work laptop and he did exactly what I told him not to do. Shoulda known not to even bother to mention it. Getting back home yesterday nothing was out of control, except the kids that remained behind for the holiday told me the dog was crying every night and from 6:00 pm just sat by the doorway waiting. What a wonderful wuss. My 16 year old daughter and her boyfriend fought over closing the porch door and as one opened it, the other one closed it and closed it right on daughter's finger. She had to go to emergency and bandage it up. Seems like the four day holiday of doing nothing was meant to be totally relaxing as the rest of this month probably won't be. Already the schedule is getting hectic. At work today, the Professor left for the day and I was left to my own devices which meant I was able to catch up on everything I hadn't been able to in weeks. My old classmate left me an e-mail and my musician friend from Berlin may be traipsing in for three weeks, plus there's a farewell dinner next week for a Swedish colleague, a Gypsy Board meeting, etc. etc. Tonight should be interesting though. There's a meditation walk for peace on the Haas Promenade and PBS (Public Broadcasting) will be there filming it and talking to people involved in different groups. So I will be there, perhaps taking photos myself while being filmed. This meditation walk crops up on my e-mails each week and each week I tell myself to go and never get around to it. But the lure of the film camera and publicity for our Interfaith Group is too much for me to ignore.

So sorry about the laptop...hope they can do a good job cleaning it up! Can't you password it so he cannot get in? I suppose it would make him mad...but...

I told him he is better off buying girlie magazines. I simply won't tolerate any more viruses on my computer through his voyering voyages.

I am sorry, Leah...often people settle for being so much less than they could and should be. Not realizing I guess that the Creator of the Universe actually cares what we do and will help us to do the right things! We can pray his eyes are opened. You do have a rough situation!
