MONDAY MUSINGS: COUNTING MY BLESSINGS
No matter how hard I wish for even a few moments of peace, it never happens. So I find myself with an ever growing "to do list" and feeling more and more overwhelmed with all the things I don't have time to do, like finish that guest post I promised to write, design a school visit brochure, read all the books on my TBR list, call all the people on my "to call" list, clean out my kitchen cupboards, and organize my garage shelves. If only I didn't have to sleep. I could really use those extra eight hours a day to get some things done.
And to top it all off, my laptop bit the dust two weeks ago. Paid a small fortune to be told that it cannot be salvaged. Luckily, the repair guy did manage to extract all my data (including several complete manuscripts) and store it on an external hard drive. I have no money to buy a new computer, so I am making due with a little netbook, which is fine except that it runs really, really slow - and I can't see everything I need to on the little screen. Oh, and did I mention that I busted my beloved Nook? Flew right out of my hand and slammed into the floor. Can't afford to replace that, either.
Do I sound like I'm complaining? Not at all. Okay. Here is where I count my blessings to make myself feel better.
4) I really wanted a new Nook Tablet. So maybe now that my 1st edition Nook is broken, I can save up and get the one I want.
