Combine one five-day weekend, including a trip out of town, with one laptop in need of a tiny repair that the repair folks turn into a much bigger deal. Result? AMusing Mom is all out of internet sorts.
I function very well with routine. Disrupt that routine and I'm honestly lost. I need to have my Monday through Friday "work week" with it's attendant flow of events. I need to have my laptop environment, complete with flexibility to work at the kitchen table while the Uber-Princess plays in the next room. I need my Simpleology to do list and my inbox folders for sorting email. Otherwise my ability to navigate the complex world of cyberspace and even the simple world of my little home just fizzles.
Enough about my virtual absence. Here's a quick story for you to show that my youngest child still deserves the title "Uber-Princess":
Last night, after a round of torturous room cleaning, which precluded having any dessert, she climbed into bed with a bit of grumbling.
Then she turned her round eyes up to me and said, "I wish I had a maid".
"Why?" I asked.
"If I had a maid, then I could just leave my things on the floor and she could put them away".
Who can argue with that? That's my Uber-Princess... And I think I'd like to be the Uber-Queen.
