A Five Thousand Year Leap

At least it seems that way to me.  Last night I got a laptop.  I was up until after 1 a.m. setting it up (okay, playing with it).  Wow.  I now have my Quikbooks for the business installed on it, and it is connected via wi-fi to the printer, so I can sit at the kitchen table and work, instead of having to be in the office/schoolroom all by myself.  While I was figuring that out, I figured out how to hook that printer via wi-fi to the desktop in the office/schoolroom.  Now I can put the OTHER printer in storage and re-claim about 2' of desk area.

This is all so exciting.

I am going to put the boys' math (Teaching Textbooks) on the laptop as some point, so they can use it for their schoolwork, instead of the computer in my bedroom.  I may actually get to clean all their stuff out of my bedroom!

I know this may sound crazy, but this has been a really big day for me. Next I am going to go smoke some meat for dinner in my big electric smoker.

Life is all good.


  1. Pioneer mother smokes her meat while Techno mother thinks up best use for wi-fi. What a collision of two worlds! A 21st century Laura Ingalls Wilder perhaps?

  2. Or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, who can tell.

    Hey - are you on Goodreads? I was going to send you an invite to be my friend, but I didn't think the email I had for you was correct.

  3. My e-mail is I am on Goodreads but haven't been over there for a while. I don't get what I'm suppose to do once I'm over there. I'm stuck in mid-century I think.


I love-love-love comments! If anything I've said touches you or makes you think in any way, please let me know. I check for comments frequently through the day.
