No, the end that is getting closer is my computer.
I’ve been cursing it a lot lately. I can tolerate its slowness (sort of). It seems to take forever to warm up in the morning, almost making me consider just leaving it on 24/7.
I can even tolerate the fact that some of my programs are a little outdated because I have
programs don’t affect my writing, so I’m okay with it. Same with the slow
computer. It doesn’t affect Word or my writing.
What has me cursing my computer is my space bar. Seems it doesn’t always like to space. Words have been sticking together (likethis). It’s kind of frustrating, especially since I tend to type fast (see… two years of beginning typing really did help!).
I don’t want to get a new computer. Not yet. But if my keyboard is going out… Sure, I could probably buy a plug-in keyboard, but that kind of defeats the purpose of writing on my lap! And then there’s the whole learning a new keyboard (I type by touch) and I’d rather just have to learn once on the new computer.
Can you tell I hate change? Which is kind of funny. I used to tell people all the time—during job interviews—that change didn’t bother me. Man, what a lie THAT was!
When I get used to something where I don’t have to think about it, I don’t want it to change. I’d rather think about more important things. Like my story. I don’t want to have to worry about hitting the wrong keys or deleting instead inserting.
Oh heck, I’m already doing that on this keyboard. The keys are too close together as it is. That’s why I plan on getting a larger laptop. One with the side number keys (man, I really miss those). But not until a better Windows program comes out. I sure hope that’s soon.
And if you see two words stuck together, ones that I miss, please forgive me. It’s my computer’s fault. Honest!
HS Football Playoff Update:
won their game against Dublin-Coffman on Saturday night, 44-35. They should
have won it 44-21, but either they got lazy or the cold got to them. I know the
cold got to me. I swear, my feet were frozen! The only good thing about the
weather is that it wasn’t windy or rainy or snowy. It was just cold. And next
week I’m going to make sure I have some thicker socks on—and my boots. I hate
it when my feet get cold. And my nose. And my hands. Oh heck, I just hate being
Why is it I can’t have hot flashes when I NEED them?
So… How was your weekend? Did you keep warm? Did you wake up to snow this morning? I’ll let you know in the comments if I did here. Although we are on a winter weather advisory. 3-5” of snow forecasted. Aaack! Too soon! Too soon!
Have a great day! And if it's above freezing where you're at, let me know. I'll come visit! J
