Hangin’ Out With My Daughter

In Editorials on September 16, 2014 at 8:07 pm

My daughter showed up at the Peer Support Centre today.  She had lunch with me there, then we went for a walk for a little bit.  We did some window shopping.  She found a sweater she liked at one of the thrift shops and wanted me to buy it for her.  I told her I didn’t have the money for it right now, which I don’t.  I told her that, if it’s still there in a couple days, when we get paid, I’ll buy it for her.  She was very mature about it.  I still wish she’d get a place and not just be crashing at their friend’s apartment.

I Miss My Computer!

I am borrowing my mother-in-law’s laptop so I’ll be able to post a bit.  I can’t wait to get my own computer back though.  My husband’s laptop quit working and they had to put it back to factory settings, erasing everything on it and re-installing Windows.  I hope they don’t have to do that with mine.  Especially since I didn’t have everything important backed up.  Lesson learned!  Keep your fingers crossed that I haven’t lost everything I’ve worked so hard on.  All of my writing.  It took a few weeks for them to get my husband’s laptop fixed.  I hope it doesn’t take as long with mine!

I MISS MY COMPUTER!  :(
