It’s a pretty traumatic experience when someone as computer-dependent as I am has been without her computer for a whole week.  (It’s being repaired.) I have had to cobble together blog posts from hither and yon since all of my blog rough drafts and most of my pictures are on the computer that is missing in action. 

Thankfully, I get to go pick it up this afternoon which will make for one very happy reunion.

In the meantime, Sarah is graciously letting me use her computer which is all fine and dandy except that none of my stuff is on her computer– which takes me back to my original point: it’s tough to write on one’s blog without having one’s own blogging materials!

Unwordy

It’s not often a wordy person like me struggles for words but today would be that kind of day. I’m feeling exhausted, happy, overwhelmed, thankful . . . and also a wee bit unwordy.  I guess it’s just a little too much to process right now.
