The Dog And My Freezing Toes

The laptop is currently out of commission!

No, it didn't crash on me (thank goodness). Actually, you know that dog? The one we decided to get in October that has brought the dog count up to three? He's in his chewing stage. It's ridiculous how much stuff he has chewed up. And the funny thing is, it's all my stuff.

Funny. Such a fluid word. It can mean strange, interesting, puzzling, or it's literal meaning. I'm not using it in the literal sense.

I really do love Harvey. Don't think I don't. And I actually should thank him, because he's giving me blogging material. Look for a "Things Harvey Has Chewed Up" list in the sidebar, coming soon.

He chewed up the power adapter for my laptop. And the laptop battery only lasts so long. We're hoping to get another cord soon.

In the meantime, I have to blog in our cold unfinished basement, because that's where the other computer is. At least we have another computer. But from now until we get a new power adapter, you can all picture the posts on this blog being written by poor little me in several layers, possibly a winter coat depending on the weather outside, and big warm socks. I may even resort to shoes.

I can just picture myself getting bundled up, pulling on my winter coat and boots, and Derek asking me where I'm going. "Don't worry Babe, I'm just getting ready to blog". Yeah, it's pathetic.

In other news, the satellite guy is coming over sometime this morning to fix our TV. Yep, the satellite upstairs is broken too. So if I want to watch TV, I also have to do it in the cold, unfinished basement. Adding a scarf around my neck and grabbing a couple blankets, "Don't worry Babe, I'm just going to watch some TV." Even more pathetic.

Here's the list of things to do today:

1. Write a couple blog posts, until I get too cold to do any more.

2. Bake ginger cookies, chocolate cherry cookies, little loaves of flavored bread for gifts, make two different kinds of fudge, work on chocolate covered pretzels.

3. Wrap Christmas presents! It's terrible how long it's taking me to accomplish that one thing.

4. Work on reading my books. I have a couple more that I'm determined to finish before the new year!

5. Get ready to go out, because Derek is taking me for a shopping/coffee trip tonight.

And that's it for now, though I have no doubt there will be more on the list by the end of today. It's kind of a fun list though, because some of those things have to do with Christmas - and Christmas chores are always kind of fun, right?

By the way, head over to Be Jolly, By Golly to read my post on Christmas traditions.

You are so precious! I hope you are all bundled up and warm. I finally got a little space heater because I often can't feel my fingers or toes in my own house!

Yay for a coffee / shopping trip. I may have to ask my husband if we can do that too because it sounds wonderful!

Yumm, chocolate cherry cookies sound good! :)

Have fun with your hubby tonight! Coffee & shopping pretty much always makes for a good time!

Aww I have been through that puppy stage of chewing things. I always say to my sister it is much worse than kids wanting to pick up everything and losing it! I hope you get to shed the layers soon when you get a new cord.

Have a lovely evening :)
