You’re a crazy thing.
Without you I wouldn’t have this blog and wouldn’t be doing a job I love.
Without you I couldn’t access my emails when I am miles away from a computer.
Without you I wouldn’t be able to easily take hundreds of books with me on a vacation without having to check like a thousand bags.
Without you I wouldn’t be able to watch my favorite TV shows.
But sometimes you are so annoying. Like when I drop my phone and ever since it asks crazy and freezes up. #allthetime
Or when even in this day and age I sometimes can’t get a clear signal. On anything. Cell phone. Internet. TV.
It is even more frustrating when your computer starts acting funny and no one can figure out what’s wrong.
Yup that would be my life right now.
Computer ‘issues’ just make me want to scream! Eeeekkkk!
Luckily Eric has a computer that he is so graciously let me
borrow take over until I get mine fixed. But as with anything, my computer is set up just how I like it and has all my stuff on it (like blog photos).
But things could be worse.
I mean heck those people on ‘Revolution’ have no power at all (yup no cell phones, computers, or TV’s for them…. Can you image?) and those people on ‘The Walking Dead’ have power but are being chased by zombies (what good would computers do them?).
So I’ll make do.
And eat oatmeal.
Oatmeal is constant and never lets me down. In fact, oatmeal can even be ‘dressed up’ in like a million different ways.
So yes here’s another oatmeal recipe. And yes it is just as good as this one, or this one, and even this one.
Mmmm. Cobbler for breakfast.
