Last week was not a fun week, so I unplugged this weekend. It was fabulous!!
Not so fabulous for Lloyd, since at the time of this writing he has spent 24 waking hours of his weekend in this computer lab, and he’s not done yet.
I did a couple of errands, then sat in my blessed folding papasan chair watching movies on the computer, reading or (shhhh – don’t tell Lloyd) napping. I helped with the occasional little thing, but my main job was to bring him food and drink so he could continue to work like a robot. (Sandwiches and Pepsi, with the occasional restaurant run.)
The movies I watched came from a Red Box, the vending-machine things. I had never used one, and was too embarrassed to take a picture while using one, so no photo. I learned that if you want to get a new release like The Proposal, you have to reserve it online first and then pick it up at the machine. Otherwise you stand there shivering outside the Walgreen’s for fifteen minutes going through screen after screen of choices, muttering under your breath like an insane person.
Learn from my mistakes.
