In Need of a New Lap
I did what any unknowledgeable person does who knows squat about computers - I asked my brother and my brother-in-law. They both agreed I should get a Lenovo. So I did. Now I just want to cry.
First, it keeps jumping between screens, even if I didn't open them. I keep getting messages that I have viruses and to purchases the virus protection, which is, no doubt, a virus itself. I will be typing away and all of a sudden, I'm in another row, typing over something else. I mean, what am I touching on the keyboard that all of a sudden I'm retyping the beginning of this paragraph?
I keep telling myself to calm down. There are people dying in Syria. My Obamacare insurance doesn't kick in for another month. My 89-year old mother-in-law isn't feeling so well. Snap out of it. This freaky computer isn't the real problem.
I am grateful for all the wonderful people in my life. I'm grateful to have a computer that works. I'm grateful that I can see the big picture, every once and a while. I guess I should be grateful for these fleeing moments of clarity. I guess you could say I'm having a fleeting moment right now.
