Getting back to what I actually had planned to talk about yesterday…… before I started talking about magic markers and accordion lists… or whatever else you were able to get from that blog…
We are now faced with new travelling preparations. We now have the same old preps to make…. sunscreen, toothbrushes, favorite cozy mysteries, clean undies, alarm clocks (Forget those! We are going on vacation…… no need to wake up early… unless of course we want to beat the crowds at some of the high people-volume attractions.), comfortable shoes, our favorite mysteries for when we finish our favorite cozy mysteries, ETC.
But in this computer age, we are faced with new preparations to make before we leave home. Remember Karl Malden telling us "Don’t Leave Home without It"… Well, that’s how I feel about leaving home without my internet connection! I have to admit that I am totally dependent on this little corner of our "play room." We used to have a Nintendo game station, the Fisher Price dollhouses, a Master of the Universe castle, and the Ninja Turtles’ sundry items in this room. Now we have portals into different worlds….. all at our fingertips…. at our computers. How can we "leave home without it"???
Is it just me who has become so obsessively dependent on computers? Just this morning I order some scented candles for the upcoming holiday season……… since now that I have this wonderful computer, how will I possibly have time to actually bake!?! Thus the necessity for "pumpkin pie" and the "warm apple pie" candles!
Oh, oh, I have gone off topic again…. More on the computer VS. vacations in tomorrow’s blog. (I am not doing this on purpose…. this is actually how my brain functions… when I try to wing it without a magic marked-accordion note!)
