Computers and Kids

Last week, I became the proud owner of this beauty…

And I’ve been trying ever since to get everything moved over from the keyless laptop to this one and figuring out how everything works. I have this odd relationship with technology. I’m not all that technologically savvy, even though I do hold a computer science minor that I earned back in 1999. I’m quite sure when I graduated that I thought because I was fluent in the computer languages C+ and assembly, I would be able to handle any computer related issue that came my way. Alas, the computer industry advanced and my knowledge did not. Which leads me to where I am today: not very technologically savvy.

I know just enough about computers that I can usually mess around with things until I get it the way I want it (plus Google is my friend). However, when I get it the way I want it, I usually can’t remember how I got there. Actually, come to think of it, that’s usually my approach to life in general. I just mess around with stuff until I get it like I like it, and then later I can’t remember what I did to get it there. Yes, frustration is my middle name most of the time. That’s just how I roll.

In other news…

That child there on the right? He is full-on in a size 3T now. Like so full-on in a 3T that if he grows any this winter, he’ll be in a 4T. That makes me kind of sad. He will be three next month. That makes me kind of sad too. Motherhood is such a bittersweet thing…

And finally, a bit of housekeeping… you can now find this little gem of nonsense at www.blessedlane.com. So, if you have this page bookmarked, you might want to update the address. Please. If you subscribe in a reader, I don’t think you need to do anything. But what do I know? You might want to re-read those first couple of paragraphs…
