>Random Thoughts on a Snowy Saturday

>Amigo is again feeling under the weather. We went to the Saturday morning clinic and found out that his ears are not infected, but quite plugged up and filled with fluid. Prescription: Lots of fluids, OTC pain reliever, and a vaporizer. He’s curled up on the couch right now in the “humidified” den watching TV.
We ended up watching SpongeBob Squarepants by the process of elimination. The Weather Channel was interesting for a while (it’s been a fascinating winter if you’re interested in weather or climate trends), but after we’d watched three “locals on the eights” we lost interest. After all, how many times can we see a prediction for 50% chance of a half inch of snow when we’ve already been out on snow-slicked roads that have at least an inch or more accumulation? Now we’re watching the snow fall (it’s really pretty if you’re indoors) and surfing the channels.
CNN was our next stop. On a weekend that is often fluff and football, they had to cover a story of a police officer’s murder in New Orleans. How sad! New Orleans PD doesn’t need any more tragedy. My sympathies to the family and force.
He wanted to watch Dora or Diego. Look, kid, you’re 16! give me a break! No kiddy cartoons while I’m in the room, at least!So we eventually ended up on SpongeBob. At least this is a cartoon with humor I can appreciate.
I had a random dream last night. It was a convoluted series of events involving people in my life both current and past, eventually ending up with my laptop being stolen while the case was left behind. Husband’s response: “You really want a new laptop, don’t you? Your case is still perfectly good, but the computer inside it is obsolete.”
Well, he’s right, but it’s a want, not a need. I can rationalize all the good reasons for a new laptop except the price. We really don’t need a new laptop. It would be convenient, useful, and all kinds of handy, especially if we outfit it with Amigo’s adaptive software. But no, it’s not a need. Yet.
Maybe Husband is demonstrating his sensitivity in understanding my dream. His fortune cookie yesterday told him to get in touch with his “feminine side.” What could I say? “Honey, PMS stinks. Here, have some chocolate.”
And on the feminine side — I entered a handful of Bloggy Giveaways and actually won a prize! It’s a lovely handmade bag from C at MamaSaidSew! There were many, many prizes, but I only entered those that I felt were of value to me or my friends/family. In this case, it’s definitely something I wouldn’t make myself. I can’t sew worth a darn, no pun intended. Thanks, C! I feel lucky.
Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket. A win would fund my new laptop…

Share and Enjoy !

  1. >I have a love/hate relationship with computers. I can’t live without them but they have a far-too-short life span.

    Thanks for the aveeno bath reminder. I even have some in the cabinet from another bad allergy outbreak last year. If this one doesn’t calm down soon, I’ll have to try that.

  2. >Hope your boy is well soon. I adore humidifiers.

    My Hunny bought me a new laptop last summer. My old was literally falling apart – as in screen propped up at all times and totally detached from base – but I was adamant about keeping it. My case was shot but the innards were fine. The trick was starting grad school online. At that point the Hunny said I HAD to have a new one.

    Maybe you could go back to school?

  3. >Lucky you–they’ve got good stuff over there. And ever since the new Macbook Air commercials came out I”m drooling over having one. Maybe it’s the catchy tune they play but I’m hooked.

  4. >You are a better person than I am for watching SpongeBob. I dread Little Dude being at the age where that show appeals to him.

    If you find a deal on new laptops, mine could stand to be upgraded, so let me know!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!
