...life happening here.
I just seem to be one of those people who just happen to have the worst luck at the most inconvenient of times.
It all started about 2 weeks ago.
I had begun my spring cleaning.. out with the old and in with.. well, nothing..
I was upstairs grabbing laundry from the basket when I hear a loud *CRASH* which naturally made me jump 6 feet out of my skin..
It was one of those "Oh my Gawd, I don't want to know" crashes, because somewhere in the back of your mind you realize that you've just lost a boatload of money and have yet another mess to clean up.
Naturally, my first assumption was the the itty-bitty-kitty committee had broken something - perhaps hopped onto the kitchen counter and knocked over the dish-drainer...
and that I now I would have shards of glass all over the kitchen floor that would some how find their way into one of my bare feet ...
No, what I had found was that the cupboard which housed my dinnerware was no longer on the wall.
.. all my *china* was on the kitchen floor. I say China because all my plates were of oriental detail.. not actually good china.. :)
(Do not look at my messy fridge okay.. you are supposed to be looking at the gaping white space where a cupboard once stood proudly!!)
Of course, everyone was just kinda sitting around with that "I didn't do it" look on their faces..
So yeah.. there was THAT..
and as you know.. for the past few weeks (going on 3 weeks now) - I've been dealing with the issue of my desktop computer.
It's true what they say.. NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE.. not even your *free* security as part of a Internet Package deal. I have McAfees because I have Comcast Internet. I used to run Nortons.. but in truth they are all CRAP .. I've known my fair share of h@ck3rs and there is ALWAYS a backdoor to sneak in IF they really want in..
However, the problem is I have a self-contained Dell computer. Which means that to reformat I have to reformat from the hard-drive which is already infected.
So I am pretty much screwed!
And The Hub is being a stubborn ass about helping me with this..
"You do this, then that - then it will be done. What do you need me to do?!"
What do I need you for?? I already have the kids... and I CAN GET your money with a good attorney...
don't push it buster!
But yeah.. there's been that..
Which is funny in a way.. looking back..
I would sit for HOURS watching the Virus Scan run... why?
What was I waiting for??
Did I really expect it to rear it's ugly head and say "Hi, I've wreaked enough havoc on your computer.. I am done now.. wanna delete me? Go here and do this!"
But it was like some horrific roadside accident... you sit there helpless, but can't take your eyes off the chaos.
But through it all... through all of this chaos disorder... this drama that seems to be the instruction manual to my life..
I was trying to make the girls' birthday pressies (which still are NOT done... *sigh*) They've seen so many of them walk out the front door for other little girls.. less deserving children (okay, perhaps not less deserving.. but THEY think they deserve a doll more than some other kid.. )
I have them closer to finished than these pictures prove... the purple one.. who just appears as a head in these photos .. actually has a body with arms and one leg...
poor thing is still bald... and missing a leg.. but hey.. no one is perfect right?
I am going to try to finish them up this week..
I bought the girls a few Barbie accessories (which PALE in comparison to the PlayStation II their daddy got them.. Pfft) but hopefully this weekend..
Okay.. so to end this little titter (or is that now twitter.. btw.. what the heck is Twitter???)..
I shall leave on a happy note...
I couldn't help but to hear the Ronettes each time my mail guy would pull up to the box...
"WAIT.. Oh yes wait a min Mr. PostMan... Waaaayayayait Mr. PostMan....
Please Mr. PostMan look and see (oh yeah) if there's a letter in your bag for me..."
(Okay, a few years before my time.. but I LOVE the classics...)
Ah hah. didn't think you would come here and get the whole song and dance huh? I am just full of surprises...
and one day... so was Mr. PostMan
My Annie's Attic order had finally arrived!
