OK, so it’s actually going better than I expected and the laptop and work iMac are making it a little bit better, but it’s still not the same. I find myself daily checking Apple’s website to see if my repair is coming along faster than they told me, but still no change.
I feel a little frazzled still because they’re so much I could do if I had everything back the way I wanted it to be. I feel like the guy to the right on the inside, but at least I don’t look that way on the outside.
I think part of the reason is that I can’t do whatever I want on any of these computers. Well that and I miss all the big sound and big screen. My boss and several associates use skype frequently and it isn’t the same when they’re a tinny little voice coming through small speakers vs. them sounding like they’re in the same room with me. My wife is waiting for me to get my computer more so I can get rid of all the junk I’ve put on her computer and give her a bit more time, but today it felt more like a divorced couple with joint custody of a child than the threesome it felt like yesterday.
Oddly enough with the free time I had on my hands today without a computer I found myself sitting out in front of my house squatting down and talking to the gopher/s that have been destroying our lawn for the past few months. I have tried every way I can think to mercifully move them off somewhere else so I now it got nasty and I started to talk to them. Talking to gophers is a sign that I might turn into the guy in the picture very soon…
