So have you heard that I got a new laptop? My first laptop! Oh yeah, it’s pretty nifty, that’s for sure. I really do love it. But I have some concerns:
For one thing, I pretty much suck at navigating the arrow-thing around without a mouse! Am I the only one who likes using a mouse better than my own finger when it comes to working a computer? I know, I know: I can always plug a mouse into my laptop — yeah, yeah, I know that. But the thing is, I WANT to learn how to use only my finger. It’s the laptop way! So I guess it’s just “practice makes perfect” … right? Or am I an old dog that cannot learn new tricks and I’ll only frustrate myself trying? Only time will tell. For now I’m going to admit that I really miss the mouse!
You know what I love about having a laptop? I can sit in my bed at night, with pillows all around me, as comfy as can be…and still be on the computer! No more sitting in a stiff chair in the hallway. This is GREAT. Really. Except…
Well, I have to wonder…how healthy is it for the baby in my belly to have a laptop sitting on his head for an hour each night? What about laptop radiation? Has there been a study on this yet? I really need to look that up. I certainly don’t want to harm my little guy. So if anyone knows the answer to this, let me know ASAP.
This weekend is a 4-day weekend for us. No school. Very cool. No schedules? Hardly. The kids still have sports and all that. It’s always busy around here, school or no school.
The other day I took Aria to the park, just her and I. Here she is on the teeter totter. And guess who was sitting on the other end of that teeter totter? Yep, that would be me, pregnant belly and all. While some of my older kids would think it’s pretty funny, their pregnant mom on a teeter totter, Aria thought it was a completely natural thing for me to do. She was like, “Mommy…you sit on the other end.” and I was like, “Okay, I’ll do that.” And you know what? It was fun! I had forgotten how fun teeter totters were.
Sometimes you just gotta have fun no matter how ridiculous you look.
