I've already whined my tale of woe about my laptop's untimely death (wow, they last about 48 hours now!) so we're sharing the family PC. A certain someone wants to blog while her mother wants to blog. Who will win the "Blog Battle"?! Here's your first clue: I'm bigger and I pay the bills (with my husband's hard earned money) so I'm blogging and she's waiting (im)patiently, saying things like, "tick, tick, tick..." Funny, huh? I should banish her to her room for a month. Yeah! That's a great plan. Except who would do the dishes and clean up the kitchen after dinner? Scratch that idea.
Okay, I'll play nice and share. Blogging is good for social interaction and it might even help her with her writing and spelling skills! Maybe I can even call it Computer Literacy Studies and give her a half a credit at year's end! (Just like a typical homeschool mom, I'm always looking to pad my child's transcript. Guilty!)
Don't shed too many tears on my behalf. My laptop replacement is supposed to be up and running tomorrow evening and then I can be as selfish as I want. I can blog to kingdom come and never have to share - Insert evil cackle here - it will be mine, all mine! That's supposed to be funny. Don't worry, I won't neglect my darling children when my new toy is all set up. As if they'd let me! In the meantime, she's giving me a countdown and generally being annoying in an effort to win the computer back so I will acquiesce gracefully and bid you adieu. Guess all that foreign language stuff is wearing off on me...
