Friday night, we had lots of thunder storms and I had to shut down the computer - or risk another burn out like I had 2 years ago.
I had worked three straight days in a flower shop and I was exhausted, as usual. I sat down in my recliner at 7pm, intending to catch a quick nap and come upstairs at 7:30 to blog. I woke up at 11:30, to a chorus of thunder and lightning. I ran upstairs as soon as I could and barely had time to check email before there came a rumble of thunder so loud it scared me and I turned off the computer. There was nothing else to do but go to bed and read, since no TV programs beckoned and any chores I might have needed to do held no interest for me at all. Believe it or not, I was worried about not visiting my usual haunts. The day felt unfinished somehow.....LOL.
I cannot imagine what I did "B.C." (before computers.) It will soon be ten years since my son gave me an old computer and some rudimentary directions on how to use it. I recall hearing that I clicked on "start" to start and also when I wanted to shut down - and it made NO sense at all. But I plugged along at it; surfing the web and checking the meager email back then (my kids took pity on me and wrote me just so I'd have email to read). In late 2004, I discovered blogs, quite by accident, and the new blogger was born soon after. I know I've written about this time and again, but what wonders you have given me! I am forever grateful.
