Well, I did it….I’m connected wirelessly to the ‘net. :) I finally broke down and spent some hard-earned moolah on a laptop computer and hooked in to the wireless network in the house. Oddly enough, we’ve had an official wireless network for nearly a year, but no laptop. We hooked up the network for our Airport and iTunes and just didn’t see a need for a portable computer. That is until I started writing more… and discovered that leaving our 4 year old son unattended in a room wasn’t the best plan if we wanted to let him live to see the age of 5. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

So I’m getting used to this and enjoying it tremendously. I’m using this mostly as a work-machine; I’m still sorting through email at the desktop and keeping the majority of things on the desktop and not this computer. But that’s really the way I want it; this is a satellite around the main system. I didn’t pop for a huge hard drive and figured that I could pay less for a thumb drive than I would for a larger hard drive and then simply swap things back and forth between the two machines.

Brendan, of course, is waaaaay more excited about this new piece of technology than he should be; I don’t let him play on the computer much at all (an occasional “love note” to Daddy at work), so it’s not like he knows what to do with this thing. But it doesn’t keep him from wanting to *try*, that’s for sure. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I imagine it will only be a scant number of years until he’s teaching me things about the computer! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, it finally happened. And Mark missed it!

I took my nightly dose of cinnamon capsules and burped. Nothing unusual, except that it burned…like I had eaten a bunch of red-hots. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Anyhow, I breathed out my nose (a challenge these days with my allergies!) and saw something in front of my face. It struck me that this was a wrong thing to see fog at this time of year, and it certainly wan’t cold enough for my breath to ‘frost’. I realized in a moment what had happened: I had a cinnamon burp that produced a cloud of the stuff! So I joined the ranks of the initiated and Mark is even more determined than ever to see this strange event. I am not aiming for it again, as the burning sensation from the cinnamon was a little more than I wanted. But some slight discomfort for me has never stopped my husband before…and it probably won’t stop him now. ๐Ÿ˜‰.
