I’d love to tell you that the last 2 weeks, spent without my beloved computer was spent on the couch watching Oprah and eating bon-bons.
I’d love to tell you that the time I spent using the boy’s lap top was the most enjoyable experience I’ve ever had using a computer.
Let me just pause here to say playing Farm Town on a lap top is torture.
Pure, unadulterated torture.
Alas, bon-bons and Oprah were not on the to do list.
No. Those two weeks were spent painting.
Painting spindles, and floor with oil based paint.
Waiting for it to dry, then giving it a second coat of paint.
Painstakingly painting color onto spindles in 95º heat.
Waiting for it to dry in the glorious air conditioned house in front of a lap top, wringing my hands…waiting for my computer parts to be in.
Adding more color to spindles, listening to the neighbor man blast Aerosmith from his garage.
Now that it is finished, the weather has cooled off.
My timing leaves a lot to be desired.
