Dang it all

My trusty laptop gave up the ghost during a thunderstorm. Unfortunately, it wasn't just the power supply, battery or adapter that was affected. Something on the motherboard is toast. Bye bye laptop. The good news is that I was able to get all the files out of My Documents. In a few days, I'll be up and running (sort of) on a desktop hubby has in the basement. (He has about 10 computers of different types around the house.) In the meantime, I'm using his main computer periodically.

I have been home from work for the past week, and expect to be for another week or so. I'm frantically sorting and pitching all kinds of junk from the house so we can clean it up for sale. We plan to have the house up for sale by the end of the month. It is a long, difficult process. For now, I have to pretty much wait to do more because I have nowhere left to put garbage until I can put the existing garbage at the curb tonight.

Brimley is thrilled with constant company; but not with the upheaval. It should be interesting to see his reaction when we move. He's never lived anywhere else.
