Quickly

First of all, an update on Elaine: she's doing exactly the same as she had been doing, which is great. Her surgery follow-up appointment is on Wednesday and her last day of antibiotics is on Thursday. Hoping and praying that the MRSA will be gone, never to return. All signs point to that being the case, but I won't breathe a sigh of relief until that little finger and arm are back to doing the cute toddler things they should be doing.

We went to camp for two nights and a day and a half. Initially I canceled because, dude, there was so much going on and I felt like I just couldn't catch my breath. Superman got in an accident the morning after the MRSA stuff went down. Everyone's fine; he was at fault - it's what unfortunately comes of being awake all day worrying about your daughter, working all night, and then trying to make it home in one piece, which he did, but the van didn't. Hopefully we'll just get a new radiator and be good as new. Or good as a 1993 Dodge Caravan gets. We'd LIKE a new van. Perhaps I should talk my sister into cursing this one. She has a pretty good track record thus far...

I would have lots of pictures of camp but I forgot my camera so had to rely on Superman's phone and my parents camera.

Also, the hard drive on my laptop is completely full. I can barely turn around without running into this or that error/warning message saying the drive is full. Can't install any updates. Can't download anything new in iTunes. Obviously can't unload my full camera card.


Any external hard drive recommendations? Just want it for storage. Backup is taken care of with Carbonite.

Also, I need to put my computer under lock and key. I'm addicted. It's keeping me from doing what I should be doing. I'm out of excuses.

Making priorities is hard. Why do I have to do it? Can't someone else do it for me? Wah. I tend to want to sit around and dwell in my lovely, big-picture panoramas for the future and while I'm doing that all the daily, mundane, repetitive chores get ignored. How can I find joy in the details, especially the BORING details? Suggestions? Thoughts?

  1. Oh, I'm so glad to hear Elaine is on the mend! I hope your van lasts exactly as long as you need it to. ;-)If you figure out how to take joy in the mundane everyday tasks of life, please let me know. I'm struggling with that one myself!

  2. What kind of camp? Or just... camping?Anyway, glad (after the fact) that she was doing better.My condolences about the van.As for an external drive, I recommend something that doesn't have a connector SO specific that you'd be hard pressed to find a replacement if your cat or children chew on it, or lose it. Heck, I have neither a cat nor a child, and I can barely keep track of my Western Digital drive's uber-quirky cord. (It's neither USB nor micro-USB.)
