or some may see it that way, but I have a request.
If you pray, chant, think good thoughts, or any other means of requesting favors, please keep my Dell Inspiron B130 on your minds. Something is wrong with the power cord socket and it won't stay on very long. This computer is my lifeline(next to God). I use it to work, socialize and keep up with the world. It is my biggest recliner resource(and with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, I chalk up a lot of recliner miles). I need to find a reliable computer place(without a gun to hold me up in the cost department) to fix it and I know of no one. If anyone has had good repair results with a chain place(Best Buy, etc) that might be in my area(I'm 16 miles east of St. Louis) please leave me a comment. Thanks-you're all the best!
In other news, the Middle went and picked up the Youngest and brought her up here for a few days, leaving the Eldest at their house. Math wasn't my strongest suit, but Middle + Eldest + Youngest=Disaster when they're all at my apartment. So my BFF and I have determined that from now on, Eldest and Middle can't be together at our apartment for an overnight since they seem to feed off each other and make me and DH absolutely straight-jacket material. I know that part of it is our ages and medical conditions but most of it is their disrespect of each other--constantly snipping, sniping and whatever that leads to non-harmonious living conditions for the rest of us. So far, Middle + Youngest=Peace. So mote it be.
So, let me in on your New Year's Eve plans. I think ours will involve foods like Lil Smokies wrapped in bacon and broiled with brown sugar, some type of main course and making S'mores for dessert. May make bourbon slush since Middle and Youngest are now legal to imbibe. Hoping to make it until Midnight. May watch movies or who knows-may see if they're doing anything under the Arch in St. Louis like fireworks and take the Metro over there.
All About the Bean - After two years with our old year-round swim team, B and I decided we weren't quite happy with how things were going. The main team was in NN and we were...
