Well. For those of you who don’t know, I am currently operating under a technological handicap, of sorts. At least, for me.
My laptop died. It wasn’t an old one, but it had been having technical issues for over a year and I wasn’t entirely surprised. Thankfully, I backed up my work the week before and had printed out my current WIP (Work in Progress) to its furthest point before the Gray Screen of Doom took over.
Of course, that it happened NOW has been difficult.
My younger son is in a time of transition, having just finished Elementary School and not yet having a Middle School placement. This makes things anxious for him.
We had a family vacation/reunion in West Virginia, and I couldn’t take my work with me. Yes, I had to write LONGHAND. I reminded myself that Little Women and Pride and Prejudice were written longhand, so I could do it. But I’m not used to it!
And I am without the bookmarks and other sundries (including my keychain and its attendant passwords) which has made reconnecting with all y’all a bit squiffy. And this at a time when I am participating in blog tours and cover reveals for other authors as well as a blog tour of my own.
Did I mention I’m trying to write a novel? lol
ANYWAY. Please forgive me and my out-of-touch-ness. I’m timesharing the house’s desktop computer with Son the Younger, aka MSG (Medium-Sized Guy), and I have a harder time keeping on top of things.
Thanks for listening. Reading. Yes.
To reward you, here are some pictures from West Virginia:
Yes, the man has attitude. Remember, he married me.
Alas, many of the rest of the images contain actual faces of actual people, some of whom are not my non-minor-children, so I shall refrain from posting them publicly.
Wait, there’s more!
My Kindle was knelt on by MSG, quite accidentally, so it is now non-functional. Our older flatscreen TV just perished yesterday, right in the middle of a BluRay viewing of Toy Story 3. AND! My wedding ring lost its solitaire and so for the first time in more than 20 years, I am ringless.
Like I said, First World Problems.
How about you?
Need a place to share YOUR first world problems that doesn’t have a 140-character limit?
Leave ’em here. 🙂 Share!
