slow as molasses

I don’t know what is slower, our internet connection, my operating system (windows) or my little laptop (acer). I have a new faster better laptop, but this one fits better on my lap. Watching The Big Bang Theory I was struck by how much technology I don’t use. Sheldon was trying to contact Amy. He said he IM’d her, tweeted her, emailed her and some other stuff that I didn’t catch. I email and blog that’s about it for me. I have a facebook account with 10 friends, 8 of which are family members. I never update my status because it doesn’t make sense to me. I do upload the occasional photo, but mostly I use it to see photos of my grandchildren. Oh, I have skype. I like skype, it gives me the illusion that my kids might call me.

Scrambled brains

All these blog post ideas are competing for space in my brain. I want to write about my impressions of Mérida after being gone for a month.

How cool is that?

My son is flying in tonight, I have been in a tizzy all week. It’s been two years since I last saw him. This is the kid who couldn’t wait to get out of Mexico and swore that he would never ever voluntarily return. You could have knocked me over with a feather when he called to say that he was coming. I really want him to have a good time, it’s different when you come as a tourist. So I am a little anxious. He also is going to the dentist,but not the one Jonna saw. A week seems like a long time, but now I am thinking he is hardly going to be here at all. It will just fly by, unlike today, which is moving at a snail’s pace. I have been wandering around cleaning stuff up, moving things around. We went to the Cost-co and the grocery store, I bought all sorts of stuff, but I ...
