I've fallen and I can't get up

We recently lost our house computer, not recently actually within days of me starting my new job and giving back my old and very lived in laptop. I loved that laptop. I spent over 3 years working and living on that laptop.

By the end that laptop was grinding, poor Augustine. Since our home computer finally croaked after living on life support for 18 months we've been living our online dreams on our various iTools. We're beginning to feel like pretty substantial itools because of it.

It has however, afforded us the luxury of time - time to knit, play cards, cook and watch tv. It's amazing how much time we were spending hooked up. I still missed it but I find when I'm online now I'm much more efficient. It's changed my work habits, our family habits and our communication habits. It's pretty creepy actually.

To wit: jarred tomatoes on my bachelor weekend. Don't worry there was much wine consumed, movies watched to compensate for every household chore accomplished.
I've finished Little Red, a red riding hood cape for Fenner's fall sweater. Just in time for Indian Summer.
We've been really enjoying these last days of civil weather. I'm not sure how pleasurable grocery shopping with our bikes are going to be in the winter time. I'm choosing denial instead of contemplating it.

For the pursuit of groceries, Chris & the kids got me one of these a few mother's day's ago: http://www.wike.ca/cargo_shopper_bicycle_trailer.php

It's perfect and hauls a lot of beer!
