I’m going to have to make this brief. Not because I don’t have much to say. On the contrary, I have volumes and volumes of things I’d love to share.
But the short version is that we’ve spent the last four days at the beach and got home yesterday afternoon and I have misplaced the power cord for my computer. It’s tragic really.
The worst part is I can’t guarantee that I didn’t accidentally throw it away in the midst of my pre-vacation cleaning frenzy. In fact, P believes there is a better than 82% chance of that scenario.
I brought my laptop to the beach, but never ended up actually using it because they didn’t have wireless access at the beach house and I couldn’t bring myself to plug into the router like some sort of twentieth century savage. So I can’t even remember if I had my power cord there or not.
And then I let Caroline watch Barbie: The Princess and The Pauper on the computer on the way home and, thus, I have about three seconds of power left.
IT’S ALL BARBIE’S FAULT.
So after I do the whole first day of school drop off thing, I’m headed to the Apple store to buy a new power cord to replace the one I may or may not have thrown in the trash.
And I’m trying not to think of all the other things I could spend that money on.
Like perhaps some herbal supplements that help with memory loss.
