Let's start with the kind of help I apparently do need. Yesterday I was convinced that the computer was broke. I pushed the button and nothing happened. All the cords appeared to be attached to the back of the tower I even jiggled them a bit for good measure, but with no results. Now the device has been behaving a bit "off" the past few weeks, so the idea of it giving up the ghost was not a foreign thought. I just pushed the button a few more times and then shrugged my shoulders and went about my day.
When the littles napped, I snagged Miss Busy's tablet and blogged about my sad, broken, computer. I also resolved to put my new found spare time to work and get more art, magic, meditation, and living done. Then Superman got home from work. He jiggled the same cords I did then pulled out the desk and plugged the unit back in. Vola! We had a working computer. He smirked at me and named himself a computer genius, but said no more. That means I'm in trouble and he's saving up all the smart comments he could have made about this escapade. Next time I think I've gotten the upper hand in some silly, verbal sparing match he's going to pull out the material about the computer. I'm sure he's already got the outline written.
Which now brings me to the help I don't need. In an attempt to be true to yesterday's resolutions, I got my day off to a good start in the arts and crafts department. I prepped a canvas for a mixed media landscape and then turned my attention to the scrying mirror I've been planning. I don't know if old Mercury is making a last ditch stab at me or if Miss Busy and Merlin have some strange allergic reaction to progress, but turmoil soon ensued.
Just after I had applied a second coat of paint to the glass and turned my attention to the dishes, the kid and the cat broke into a racious game of tag which resulted in a foot print in my wet paint. Next was a game of peek-a-boo in the table cloth. Not long after, I got an important phone call and ended up sounding like a nutter while I dove across the living room to rescue my tea mug from Miss Busy and then moments later was attacked by a plastic picture Merlin sent flying off the top of the fridge. I certainly won't be able to say I had a dull day.
