if I'm a bit boring while I'm without a computer. Please feel free to take a little vacation from my blog if you're at risk of being bored to death. It should only be a couple weeks before I get a replacement; after that, I guess I won't be able to blame your boredom on my lack of a piece of equipment, right?
I've been typing on Hubby's laptop when necessary, but I hate that thing! In the middle of an email, I'll find that the cursor has jumped somewhere unexpected and is inserting text where it doesn't belong. Seriously, I'm slow enough at typing on a laptop keyboard without having to also chase around a rogue cursor and correct its wayward ramblings.
And if you get multiple emails from me? Same thing. When I click on "send," the laptop will let me know it's "loading" but then nothing. It never tells me it sent the email. To find out, I have to open another mail page and check my sent folder. The other night, I wrote the post about my computer woes and told it to publish, but all it did was save the post in draft. Mouse clicking on "publish" does nothing. I have to click on it and then hit enter.
Well, at least I know now that I don't want a laptop. I was thinking about it for awhile.
On another subject, I wanted to thank Dawn, who left a couple comments on my post about our beach vacation. Dawn told me about beach wheel chairs and gave me a link to where we can get a beach wheel chair at Pismo Beach. I can't tell you how much that will change our vacation plans. I don't know what exactly the Pismo Beach wheel chairs look like, but I did an image search and generally most seem to look similar to this:
And now that I know we can get Hubby down onto the SAND, I've asked him to buy, borrow, or steal (shhh! Don't tell his big brother, the sheriff!) a beach umbrella, and I'm dreaming about kicking back and reading novels, drinking cocktails smuggled onto the beach, and taking naps under the umbrella.
Unfortunately, Dawn's "no-reply," so I can't write back to her, but I think this idea is great for other readers of my blog, so I'm happy to thank her publicly and share her find. I understand they have these available at many beach vacation spots.
I'm writing to you from work--where I have a computer that does what I tell it to do--and it's time to head home, so I'll set this to post a bit later. Thanks for checking in on me.
