Bleary eyed addict

My husband came home for lunch yesterday and as he poured himself something to drink, he asked "Have you been sitting on that thing since I left?"  as he gestured to the computer.

I said, "Of course."  And I pointed out to him that this is what he got it for, not for me to oooh and aaahh and then put it away to use later, when I could be uninterrupted.

Because you know, letting it sit around for the next 20 yrs or so until the kids are gone is probably not what he had in mind.

I 'fess up.  This is addicting.  I can sit down and start to surf, or fool around with the ever-maddening iTunes installation that is currently the only fly in my ointment, and suddenly it's time to pick up the kids from school and I've still not hit the shower yet. 

I'll be suddenly hungry, then realize that the stray handful of Fruit Loops I pilfered from Audrey is not gonna be enough to last all day.  Yikes.  I'm neglecting hygiene and my health? 

Probably not what he had in mind either.

It's all about balance, grasshopper.  Mmm-hmm, I'll buy that.

I just need to look at one more thing....

Do you think I look the way I do on my days off on purpose?

Face it, woman...you're having an affair with a laptop computer.  LOL  

Of course, even the computer is probably hoping you'll start brushing your teeth and showering!!!!  

XO,
