I love technology, until I don't.

This was a bad, bad weekend for my laptop to shit its pants. I can't get Internet, which means I'm at the mercy of my husband to lend me his. Add to this the fact that my Ipod has also died, which for me means a torturous ride to and from work (approx. 1 hr each way). I hate technology, unless it's easy and it works. I miss my precious.

On the non-techno front, potty training is not going well. We figured a four day weekend would be perfect, we'd go cold turkey and come out the other side of the weekend victorious. The only thing I'm victorious about is doing laundry. Lots and lots of laundry. Out of all three of my kids, this is definitely the most stubborn; I'm beginning to take it personally.

So while I can't really complain about a 4-day weekend, I'm going to anyway. Waaaahhhh!!!

I so feel for you. My stupi mobile phone won't play my mp3s any longer and I have no idea why. It rings and the radio is working too but no mp3s!!! Damn technology!

Hannah - yes, I love my new look, I think I've found something I'll stick with for awhile!

Susi - that's when it's most frustrating - when some of it works but not all of it! Grrr!!

I'm potty training too...I have no consistency though. She can't wear pull-ups to day care. The MIL (mother in law) will not put her in underwear. Hubby can't jump on any train. I think we are just confusing her.

Luckily my iPod is still working. Where are you commuting to for an hour!???

Parajunkee - I hate the pullups, it's the same as diapers IMO.

I work downtown, but I have to drop off 3 kids in 3 different places and then sit in Bridge traffic. In the afternoons it's just sitting in downtown traffic trying to get onto the bridge.
