Josh went to Best Buy today to finally replace our finikicky (hahaha!! I was trying to type finicky and that is the result...I had to leave it up, it almost works). computer charger! The old one had wires sticking out of it (which we "resolved" with tape) and we had to put bottle caps or books under/on top/to the side of it to make it stay charging. It was also probably unsafe. So that was a wonderful thing to finally get. I can (and am) now typing with the laptop in my lap where it belongs instead of leaning over the coffee table afraid to move anything lest we lose the charge. : )
I also went shopping this week for slacks. I have owned maybe one or two pairs in all my life, and never knew what it felt like (or looked like) to have ones that fit properly! They are surprisingly much comfier than jeans. Yay for that : )
This morning on the way to work, the Mini Cooper received yet another rock-bullet to the windshield. It is probably made of paper. We now have five lovely-sized chips in the windshield. One that has spread in a matter of minutes, and will probably reach the other side by the end of the week without so much as a bump in the road to help it. So we are getting a new windshield, and told Clark to make it bullet proof.
I am currently reading a book called Hand of Isis. It's historical fiction about Cleopatra and her two half-sisters and the growth and struggles in Egypt at the time. It's incredibly interesting. The author states at the end that all of the technology and facts of Egypt are real. At the time, the Egyptians were in the process of creating a steam-powered jet engine called an aeliopile that they thought if they could make it powerful enough, they could fly to the moon! The author says that if the Dark Ages hadn't happened, we might have been flying to the moon a lot sooner. It just made me think about God's plan for the world. Maybe we weren't ready for such a big step in world development...
Anyway, to finish the random post now inappropriately titled, I was watching America's Funniest Home Videos and there was a clip of a hound dog hitting keys on the piano while howling at the top of his lungs....bahaha.
