6 long days later...

...I'm home! I survived!

My sister and I were civil to one another. We didn't greet each other when I arrived last Friday and we didn't wish each other well when I left this morning. My parents, while they didn't mention anything to me, were obviously aware of what was going on and didn't try to intervene. My sister and I spoke when needed which wasn't often. She's still the psycho that she always has been but at least I didn't have to deal with her that often.

I overheard that she was recently diagnosed with migraines which could have contributed to her nasty disposition over the years but like I said, she's still very much OCD and is seriously overprotective of my children in ways that are quite irritating. But I won't go into that right now because I'm ecstatic to be home!

I have good news and bad news. The good news I will save for another time because it takes quite a bit of explaining and I have a buttload of shit to get done around here this evening and I need to take advantage of it while my kids are staying overnight at their dad's.

The bad news is is that in recent weeks, my computer has started acting up on me in very bothersome ways. We all know from my stories how slow it is but now certain things aren't working. Even though it's very rare for me to turn my speakers on, they seemed to have died along with my disk drive which I may have used twice in the last four years that I've owned this POS computer. Also, Firefox keeps crashing on me to the point where I have difficulty getting online and I now have to maneuver through back doors just to get online. It's quite annoying and it looks like I may be hitting Best Buy again this week for a new 'puter.

But enough with all that, I hope this finds everyone well and recovering from their holidays which I hope were spent safe and left y'all with lasting memories! Happy 2009!!!

I guess it's all about perspective. I read this as both an opportunity to shop and to get a shiny new computer for this shiny new year. All good in my book! Happy New Year, and glad to hear your trip went better than you expected.

Glad you're home and everyone is in one piece. It was pretty dead in Bloggerville without you around--you were definitely missed.

Welcome home, and wishing you the happiest of new years! Now go do that computer shopping - it'll be a blast playing around with your new "toy"!!

Derfina, you do have a point although after The Great Appliance Meltdown of 2008 (in which I had several appliances and other things fail me at one time), I'd prefer staying away from all electronics! Happy New Year to you as well and I, too, am glad that things went better than expected although I think I'm even "gladder" (lol) that I'm home and away from those nutty people I call family!

Charlie, how nice of you to say! I did miss being away from Bloggerville, no matter how boring it may have been! Hope you're having a great New Year so far (2 days into it, lol)!

GP, thank you and the same to you! As far playing with new toys, I'm really just getting to know this one!

It's good to hear from you Koolio! It's been too quiet on this end of the Blogosphere. Hopefully the good news is you're writing a book or you're dating someone wonderful? Or, best yet, you're dating someone hot who's a book agent--he looks at you once he finds out you blog and makes you tell him where. The second you tell him, he collapses into giggles and hands you a contract--he's been running all over your area code trying to find you to offer you the writing job of a lifetime!"

What do you mean, "Fuck no, that's not it? It's an AWESOME thing and you could at least dream once about it...

OK, it's not logical or realistic. That doesn't mean he's not hot...
