Goodbye, Dear Friends

The computer is going off-line tomorrow. In THEORY, I will be back to regular happy blogging in about ten days. Cue the "shark" music. Because I have NO faith that this computer is going to be ... normal ... once we haul it several hundred miles.

Actually, I've started having an odd feeling about this computer. Several times recently, the only way I could get it to work was to boot it repeatedly. This does not bode well for my future with THIS computer. I will refrain from placing an excessive amount of blame on my children and husband, who installed who-knows-what on this computer to get it to play games with the computers in other locations of the network. I only realized they were installing ... stuff ... like crazy because they reached the point they couldn't install any MORE stuff and were bummed about it! Hello!?! There's so much ... stuff ... on MY computer that it won't load more? And what of it is MY stuff?

(Deleted absolutely psychotic rant)

And so I'll be blogging next from Colorado, a happy place.

Waves

Let us know when you get here.

Have a good move to Colorado!

And as for the computer, install Linux on it, huh? If I were there, I'd be glad to do it for you. :-)

Safe travel & Godspeed!

Can't wait to hear of your new adventures in CO!

Hope all is going according to plan. *laughing at the thought of Lucy doing anything according to plan*

Can't wait to hear of your latest adventures.

Well. I have no idea how to log on to my own site. Do not panic (or laugh until coffee comes out your nose). I have the info written down somewhere.

We are now in Colorado. Sort of. And, no, nothing went according to plan. (Although the movers were absolutely stunned at the OCD-level of color-coded labeling, in a good way) (And the painter told me he had never painted the inside of closets colors before, but he was going home to paint his own closets too)

Instead of me being really "here", blissfully happy, we have determined that we have to make ANOTHER trip across Kansas for one last load of stuff from Missouri.

I am not thrilled with Kansas. There is NO point for Kansas.

On the other hand, I like Colorado bunches. I think. I have the eerie feeling that I'm not really experiencing the local culture. Mostly because my husband wisely put us in a subdivision with grass-and-trees instead of gravel-and-cactus. Sometimes I feel like I'm wandering out of a bio-dome on the moon when I venture out for groceries.

He's happy here. Doing WAY too much laughing. For example, I asked him to "itch my back" because I was desperate and itchy. He replied "itch" is not a verb! And then grabbed his stomach as he doubled over laughing! I suppose it could be worse ...

Well it's good to hear from you!

Well. We are back in Colorado. Again. And all I have to say about the trip is that it made me reconsider my criteria for a good road-trip.

Now, to my way of thinking, its so VERY obvious that any road-trip is going well if it doesn't involve me buying clothes at a gas-station ...

oooh... that doesn't sound good.

I just had a camping trip that reminded me why I do NOT tent camp!!!
