My Laptop, Jury Duty & Lots Of Vomit

I know I promised a blog entry today, and, to be fair, I’m getting this in just under the wire, but I do apologize for the lateness.

I’d also like to apologize for the lack of entries lately, but once you read this you’ll understand.

OK, first off, two Thursdays ago my Toshiba laptop took another jump off the ol’ Windows cliff. I had to take it to the shop and get the hard drive ripped out and all of my data rescued.

This, of course, right before a weekend trip out of town. We saw a lot of old friends and went to a wedding, so the trip actually kept my mind off computer problems.

When we returned, I finally made the switch to a nice Apple PowerBook G4 with all the trimmings. It’s a sweet ride to be sure, but learning/outfitting a computer from the ground up again eats up a lot of time.

Then I had jury duty downtown. Thankfully I talked my way out of a lengthy trial, but still, it ate up an entire day.

But here’s the worst stuff… My son was hospitalized for 2 days with something called the rotavirus. I think he picked it up at library playtime. Anyway, it caused a bout of vomiting that caused us to use every piece of bedding he has twice in the same night. The next day he got worse (if you can believe it) and we had to take him into the pediatric emergency room.

Anyway, we ended up living at the hospital for the weekend and some of today, but he’s on the mend and tearing around again like the little guy I know and love.

Sorry if this post is a little on the weak side, but I’m just in no condition to really edit and craft something nice. So, thanks for hanging in there with me. I’m going to get something nice up for Wednesday. See you then…
