No Posts Lately

If anyone actually reads this blog, I haven't been blogging for two reasons.

First, my laptop died. Rather, the motherboard died. It would cost over $600 to replace that and the inverter on the screen. (The inverter is the cheap/easy part.) I could get a new laptop for that price, but mine has a 17" screen and I like that. So I'm being picky. Sue me. 17" monitors from Lenovo start around $1200 (apparently their hardware is the best quality as opposed to HP which is what failed me after 2.5 years.)

Second, I've become addicted to World Golf Tour or wgt.com. It's an online golf game that has an international community. So much fun. If you go on, I'm Grissomwoods.

Yes, I have a desktop in my basement. Blogging is not as easy down here. When I'm on this computer, it's either in the middle of the day when I am trying to check email & stocks in between loads of laundry and checking on whatever is on the stove or in the oven or tending to a kid who is not napping like they are supposed to. At night, I like to play golf.

Fortunately, this isn't a job, or I'd have been fired a long time ago.


  1. Sometimes, I wanna believe that my laptop is alive and never let me alone :):):) By the way, you are makin me relax with your blog writings.

  2. Sometimes my blog starts to weigh me down. It's nice when someone reminds you it's not a job, and just something you started doing for fun once.

    Happy New Year.

  3. wow you and your wife are so luck!

  4. I just blogged about the great new laptop I am getting. Big 16" screen, top of the line for $650 at Best Buy. It's a Toshiba. Just make sure you get the DDR3 Ram rather than the DDR2. The model # is A505-S69803. SKU 9672271. After alot of research it appears to be top of the line. I like you prefer a laptop with portability. Nice to be in the same room as the family when blogging.
