I was hoping to be able to tell you all about the knife skills class I recently took at Fosters – I was so excited to blog the other night and recount the 10 commandments of cutlery. But first, since I got home so late, I headed to the kitchen to make something light due to the Eat In Challenge (and no takeout! Day 8 – huzzah!) I really wasn’t paying attention to the constant fight of the furballs and figured I’d write after dinner.
The Furballs fight – CONSTANTLY. See, Shadow, my cat, has this habit of driving my pug and sous chef Wiggy crazy and entices him to leave his kitchen station and chase her down the long hallway. I had moved the laptop to a small table so I could blog from the comfort of the couch. Sadly, the wireless router I moved here with is beyond ancient and is not supported by Comcast so for the past few months, I have operated solely connected to the cable modem by means of a VERY long cord. So, that evening Shadow decided that it was time to get Wiggy in trouble and started her evening torture. Wiggy took the bait, began the chase – into the cable internet cord – and *boom* I heard a shaking thump. Yup, you guessed it, my laptop took a nose dive onto my “non-plushy” carpet and went boom and it refused to power up. I tried everything I could and I had to bury the Gateway. In other bad blogger news, I haven’t backed up in about 2 weeks so those recipes I bookmarked to try, the food photos I took to write about, the partial posts on my Windows Live Writer – all gone. A moment of silence please….
So, after doing much research on my iPhone (thank heavens for that internet connection!), I was able to figure out a new replacement Toshiba laptop, the correct WIRELESS modem and, ta-dah, we’re back in business. The only thing I hated was not being able to buy it online and get cash back but in the end, lesson learned.
The Dog/Cat chase and Cords = Non-Mixy Things.
