My work computer is back up and running. It has only been a week and a half for Dell's next day service to kick in and I had to do half the work myself, but it's here, it's running. I am looking at my beautiful, non-headache-inducing flat screen monitor and twirling my trackball mouse and seeing my baby-girls' faces on my wallpaper and screensaver. (There's also all the very important work that I don't have to recreate from scratch on my hard-drive that I have reclaimed.) Life is good.
I have been without this machine, without my whole office (being relegated to the file room where the only free computer lives) for so long I had forgotten the chatter from the hall, the handiness of having my things in the same room with me and the joy I get from seeing my framed pictures of my kids on my desk.
It's funny how the little things make you happiest.
In other news, hold onto your horses because you have a very crafty end of the week coming up. I fully intend to post What's in My Crochet Bag this week and I have a crochet conundrum I'm saving for tomorrow. You'll be amazed, astonished and agog. Unless you're like my husband and hate all things crafty, then you'll be bored witless.
