ending with a fizzle

Earlier today, I asked Stupid Daddy to do that magical thing he does when my computer starts behaving badly--disk utility, something else, something else. I don't know exactly, all of it scares me. He does what he does and my computer, she purrs happily again.

Except that this time, in addition to the above, Stupid Daddy also took it upon himself to accidentally delete my entire hard drive. Oops.

Undaunted, I decided to use his computer for my final NaBloPoMo post when it was freed up at the end of the day. But at some point this afternoon, he did something different but equally grave to his computer.

Now both computers are in the shoppe, and we are temporarily a computer-free household.

And yet, there was a blog post to complete. So I went over to my friends' house down the street to use their computer. But alas, cookies were not enabled and when I followed the instructions to enable them, nothing changed. Access denied. Login failed.

So here I am finally at my sister-in-law's, typing away, getting it done because it needs to get done. But the keys make a different noise when I click them and the cursor moves faster, and it's just not the same. Besides, I need to head home now to help Stupid Daddy put three tired and cranky kids to bed.

NaBloPoMo has been a blast. No, really. It has.

I commend you. I just couldn't do it. I went AWOL while my husband was home during Thanksgiving vacation.

Heheee sounds like us -- he does anything and everything that has to do with the computer/wires/gadgets and I'm the "handy" person with the rest of the household stuff.

You are dedicated! You deserve a prize, if not a real one from Nablo then at least a consolation runner up thingamajig.

p.s. Can you BELIEVE that spell checker allowed "thingamajig" as a word??? :D

See, now, that's the kind of dedication that makes you a Bad Ass Stupidmommy! A little computer meltdown? No problem! Borrow a computer...or several.

I had to borrow a strangers computer in San Francisco during the second weekend in November as the public computers were all hinky. Fortunately, the kid whose laptop I borrowed was super nice. Plus, I bribed him with a cocktail. And my adorableness. (Yeah. Right. I'm old enough to be his mother.)
