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 like this quote a lot. Often, throughout my day, I notice things about people. A certain way they smile at me, raise an eyebrow, roll their eyes; it could be any number of seemingly arbitrary things.

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! :(
