I Wish There Were Exciting News, But There Simply Isn't

After last week's post, I devised the perfect plan for blogging success and self esteem elevation. My goal was to wait 23 days exactly between all posts, convinced this would elicit  an onslaught of the lovely and encouraging messages and comments I received after finally posting last week which caused me to beam and feel so loved. 

Unfortunately, I have no self control and am forced to post again about, well…nothing. 
My apologies.
Since I think we can all agree that returning to my normal computing life is top priority, I’ll update you on the computer situation.  What more can you ask for in blog entertainment?

Bad news everyone, my computer is still rebelling against me. Even after sending it off to the equivalent of one of those scared straight facilities for troubled teens, it still refuses to cooperate in the slightest. I am so disappointed in it.  Aren’t you?
So, like the severely troubled teens that are unresponsive to even the harshest punishment, it has to be killed and then brought back to life. That is what happens, right?

I have a feeling this computer saga will last at least through the end of the week.

Michael Dell must HATE my blog.

(I assume someone with his level of power and success has surely been reading for quite some time now. It's probably part of the business plan.)

I'm explaining this to you all so you can go ahead and lower your expectations of hearing the intricate details of every fascinating aspect of my life over the next seven days. You are simply going to have to miss out and I am sorry for you for that. It's surely going to be a doozy.

Or a doozie? Or a duzie? Surely you know what I mean here. I'm a stay at home mom to three kids and possibly a new dog...the excitement level is high.

For example, I just called Time Warner Cable and talked to them for 25 minutes, I'm getting ready to go make a smoothie, and then I'm going to the dermatologist!

I'm not sure how you'll survive without these types of updates.

Very quickly though, before Alex decides his paying job is more important than me sharing the details of my smoothie ingredients and dermatology diagnosis with all of you…imagine, I think it’s vital for you all to see the cuteness I will be forced to endure this summer.

Swimming season has begun here for Stella.

It’s simply painful because it's so cute.

I’ll be back with more updates as soon as possible.

Random thought of the night. I saw Angelina's engagement ring which Brad allegedly spent a year designing and it's really, really ugly.  Am I alone in thinking this?  Do you think she's pissed?  She is the woman that used to wear vials of blood around her neck, perhaps Brad felt the expectations weren't too high? 

Discuss amongst yourself....and get back to me on your vote of so ugly that a vial of blood might be better, or Brad designed it so it must be wonderful.

It's an ugly ring. I don't understand buying a diamond in an emerald cut. It doesn't sparkle, so what is the point of using a diamond? You may as well put glass in there, and save yourself a TON of money. If I'm getting a six karat diamond, it had better sparkle!

I didn't see it - and only JUST saw the news while in the grocery story line. I thought it was a tabloid rumor. I'm wrong, I take it?

I hope you appreciate the effort I went to to find a picture of the ring. I had to click SEVERAL links to find it. I think I might have to go lay down now. I don't think my boss will mind.

Anyway, EWW! That seriously took him a year? I definitely vote for the vial of blood! Actually, the band looks like it's made more to hold a vial of blood than a diamond. Perhaps that's what he was going for? Multipurpose engagement ring? Well done Mr. Pitt.

And dear God how do you stand that child? She is just too cute! She's going to get away with murder just because she is the cutest!!

It is a rather ugly ring. I love emerald cut diamonds, but this one doesn't do it for me!
I want a smoothie.

I agree, Angelina's ring is hideous.
