I wish I could say this post was just about learning a new crochet stitch or something. Unfortunately, it’s actual technology causing me problems.
The other night, my laptop started fizzling, crackling, popping, maybe some snapping thrown in there, too. I shut it down in a hurry. When Mr. Gren got home that night, I showed him where the noise had emanated. He sighed and said, “That’s the mother board.” Three cheers for an expense we can’t afford right now! Hip, hip, nevermind. Currently, I am using Mr. Gren’s laptop, which is also on its last leg. It has all kinds of fun lines across the screen, and sometimes, if you’re really lucky, the screen never wakes up at all and you’re just left staring at a dismal black rectangle. I don’t know how long I’m going to be offline. I don’t know when we’ll be able to get a new computer. Mr. Gren’s dream job as part-time minimum wage cashier at the home improvement store surprisingly doesn’t rake in a lot of cash. In the meanwhile, I guess I’ll have lots of time to finish up some of the projects I’ve got going on around here, so I should have plenty of material for posts whenever I do get to come back. Until then… go do some fearless crafting of your own and stay tuned for the grand re-opening. Maybe I’ll do something fun with lots of fanfare. Ciao.
