A virus attacked my laptop yesterday.
And it looks bad. Very bad.
I was an idiot and clicked on a link from a relative through Facebook. Yes, dear reader, another Facebook worm has been created, and you should all beware!
But I feel so stupid.
You NEVER click on links that don't have explanations. I know this! I know this! And yet, I didn't, because I did.
So, I'm using the downstairs computer for now. But because it's isolated in a separate room, the chances of me being online for a while will be limited. The laptop gave me the chance to be online whenever I wanted while still being a good mom (yeah, that doesn't sound right, does it?) because I could be anywhere! Laptops are nice that way.
But it's an old one. And the damage looks bad. So, I may be out of laptop, anyway. And since we're just rolling in the dough...(ha!)...chances of getting a new one are slim to none. Mostly none.
But this is okay! Because Brandon works for an online back-up company, and so everything on that laptop was backed up just a mere two hours before the virus attacked. And maybe I can take this as a sign that I should be on the computer less --or at least plan out a time each day to use it that won't interfere with my mothering "duties". Or something like that.
So...if you don't hear from me for a while (which sounds crazy since I haven't been commenting on anyone's blogs lately --for like a month!?!?), this is why. I promise I'll be around. Just not as around as I'm used to.
More sighing and sniffing from me.
Oh, and Alison? I totally get your grief now. So sorry!
