I Can't Quit You!




I literally had to be like a real person these past 2 weeks...well once I got through the withdrawl symptoms...and still I wouldn't say I functioned like a 'real' person

The first day I only sat in your chair 30 times before realizing you were not here. I was sad, I felt disconnected, I cried...

The 2nd and 3rd days were H-A-R-D! I had the shakes, the chills, sweaty palms, I gave PMS a run for her money! I had to call my mom and ask her to check my emails. I sat in the chair and clickity clicked the mouse-that may or may not have helped with the shakes.

The 4th day Eric tells me I hit him in the middle of the night and said 'GO BUY ME A NEW COMPUTER PRONTO' He told me the next morning he seriously contemplated breaking into Best Buy @ 2am. He said I was in trance, drooling and speaking in another language saying things like 'alt and the #3' 'ctrl/alt/del' 'right click right click' I do not remember hitting him, I am not typically a violent girl...

By the 5th day I was sure my pc was unfixable and politely threatened Eric to take me to Best Buy. He refused...so I did what any good wife would do...

I 'schooled' him...for the next few days...

I took control of the remote and made him watch things like The Hills, Desperate Housewives, Americas Next Top Model, The City, Sex and the City, Big Love re-runs, Project Runway, I surfed the 900s aka the music channels on Cox and made him listen to all POP music, he dislikes 'POP' music very much and I sang along...loudly...and very out-of-tune.

I told him Abby has a project due that is now 1 week late because we don't have a way for her to type it up...I pulled out all the stops. He asked me to give the computer guy till Monday, I may or may not have asked him to wait till 2014 for sex.ever.again

Guys I had to do things like:

Laundry
Run the thing that makes your carpet look nice
Set something out for dinner every.single.day!
Watch the actual news on the TV
Read the paper
CALL people instead of emailing them
I gave myself a 2nd degree burn trying to make FLAN!
Shower
Get dressed
Go to Bass Pros customer appreciation night for 3 friggin hours
Make the childrens take pics with Santa @ Bass pro night
Threaten to make Eric take pics with Santa @ Bass pro night
Load the dishwasher
Run the dishwasher
Unload the dishwasher
Sweep
as opposed to burning pine-sol on my stove and calling it all good

I applied make-up out of sheer boredom... TWICE... in one day

I fixed my hair, I then colored my hair, I am now a brunette, yes, no working computer makes you do things you normally wouldn't do, strange things...

Today when I arrived home from daddys chemo appointment there was my beautiful tower sitting on the table, calling out to me...I ran to it and hugged her tightly, then quickly hooked a girl up...




So it's official I can't quit you, I have a problem and am proudly acknowledging it

My Confession for today: I am back and my my my how I have missed you ALL!!!! Time to get caught up...just as soon as Abby types up her report...

P.S.
Thank YOU Amy for keeping everyone updated with SSS info...received your SSS pkg sign the linky in the post below

  11. I am happy for our sake (and your hubby's) that your computer is up and running again. It is always good to read about your adventures. I know how you feel about the cleaning. Personally I would rather be making something (which doesn't help the mess. In fact quite the contrary).

  12. Going without a computer/internet is the worst. It's amazing how dependent on it you become. When our internet was down awhile back I kept running over to check the weather or look up a phone number. It's so aggravating, I feel your pain. Glad you're back!

    If someone took away my laptop for a week, they'd have to put me in a padded cell with a Thorazine drip.
