Things have gone from bad to worse in the computer department. My "n" key is giving me fits now. I already lost my "s" key so that is a difficult key to miss and I have to concentrate to make sure it works. Then the work laptop has totally conked out. Which is really sad because I saved all of my digital pics and videos on it until I copied them to a CD. Did I mention I am quite the procrastinator? Anyhoo, that is now not done and I just hope that the tech guy will not blame me for the broken computer. It is a refurbished one and over a year old anyway so we shall see.
Then the network is still down! Ugh!! I wonder ow much a new laptop would be and if I could work out a payment plan. I am anxious to see how much if any tax I will owe to AR and on the fed side. I don't have my W-2 from first thing yet and though I have all the info from Third thing (current job) we haven't printed them yet. Oh and I found a problem with the calculations from the system we used the first 6 months and the system we used the second 6 months after my boss made the announcement that W-2s would be ready on the 19th. He is so gung ho to get them out that he didn't worry or wonder about any problems. Granted we weren't supposed to have any but that is in a perfect world, one in which we don't live. So I am a wee bit wound up tight.
The attachment meeting today was basically just an assessment with me signing forms and briefly describing the major problems. I sort of feel silly because by training I am a master's level counselor so I had to check my ego A LOT! And she is the type of therapist I would be jumping in to say whatever it is before the thought is lost. I so see that in myself. I wouldn't call it interrupting per se just trying not to lose the thought. She used what I said on the phone as the presenting problems and for the life of me I couldn't remember what exactly I had said. Early onset alzheimer's here I come.
Now I will say she did point something out that I need to share. Remember when I said G stalls at bedtime and sometimes asks things that to me are totally non-important you know like how do you spell pinnochio and such. I typically just cut her off when she does that verses my willingness to talk about her adoption experience even if used as a stall tactic. But the therapist pointed out that to G even the spelling of pinnochio is important and I am basically negating what is important to her. So I will make an effort to tell her that "although 'stall tactic verbage' is very important to you, let's be sure to discuss it in the morning because mama dearly needs her sleep and can't focus on such an important topic right now." We will see how that works.
Now Anya at Hills Creek Quilt-something or other I will be contacting you. See the video for how I drew the winner. That is my notebook of names of entries, see why I blog?
I still have a review to do but may have to borrow my mom's computer to do so. So this weekend I will get that done and try to catch up with all my fav. blogs that I will probably now have to rebuild if the computer is really fried. I hope not. Praying for a miracle there!!
