Dropping off my precious...


Because I am like Golem with my laptop...imagine the hideously grating voice and ringing hands as you read the title. Computer probably has too prominent a place in my life. It's my connection to a larger group of unschoolers, to other attached mamas, people that I agree with in parenting practices, philosophical practices, politics, religion...and I don't have to pack up the kids and go anywhere! They don't mind (Or even know) when I have to set it aside and attend to someone's needs, and so it's my perfect socialization tool. It's my connection to a vast world of knowledge, one that's ever changing. How exciting is that? To get online at any time and google this phrase or that date and see what's up. Anyway.....

The case was cracked by an unnamed daughter, several months ago. I put off taking it back in, because I JUST HAD IT FIXED right before she cracked it. It's not a big deal, it still works, but it's covered by a warranty for the next month and some, so I might as well take it in. Plus its a great excuse to head back to the Apple store. :-) I love that store, and covet the large iPhone in the front that acts as a TV. Wouldn't it be cool to have a five foot iPhone hanging on your wall to surf the net with?!

All that means that I won't guarantee any emails or blog entries for a while. We have five other computers, but two are PCs (blech) and none of the other macs have my personal settings on them, making life entirely too complicated. :-P

Guess what? Someone just joined the RUN list and her name is Melissa Gray. I thought it was YOU! ha.

So there are two of you in unschooling cyberspace now (well, technically one since your computer is dead for the moment) and that is going to be so confusing for my poor brain.:)

Weird. Someone is stalking me...I must go stalk her in return.
