Over the weekend I filled my shopping cart with two dead dinosaur apple laptops, one of the very first imacs ever made (the blue ones). an ancient printer, a PC monitor, lots of computer wires and plugs, and a dead phone... and walked to the edge of the park where I recycled them with Tekserve... I've been meaning to do it every year but am always away on the days they do it in our neighborhood...  so I feel like a good citizen and I get Tekserve bucks to spend at the store and my name gets entered in their free macbook air giveaway...

I also got to FB videochat with B... who has gotten through all the worst of the mono symptoms but remains exhausted and still looks like she feels pretty miserable 

and now there is a problem with my car... it could be the head gasket or just condensation but our mechanic hasn't gotten back to us and so anyway I am grounded for the week... I've entered a couple RunThrus and a Jessica Ajoux-judged Fun Match coming up over the next couple of months in an effort to generalize our RDW and also am sending off an entry for our first USDAA and being grounded is a good excuse to plow ahead with the novel  : )

Somehow I missed the fact that B had mono. I am sure glad she is feeling better. Had no clue you could FB video chat either. I am so much a dinosaur of technology. ;-)

Get busy on the novel. I can't wait to read it.

yes, poor B she couldn't lift her luggage to go back to school after new years so I flew with her and also had to go buy all her textbooks for her... friends are helping her and she's really missing normal life, chomping on the bit to get back to waterpolo... but doctors orders she's got to go for a physical exam to make sure her spleen isn't enlarged, freakin mono : (
and skype hasn't worked for us, but FB video chat is easier and just great, is your daughter on FB? hows the college thing going? next year right? If she goes to look at UC have her look up my B

and I actually got some novel done yesterday, thanks for the encouragement, it really does help!!!!!!!!!

You have a new cart, yes? I have a really old laptop I need to get rid of too, and a camera.
