My Christmas Gift is the Reason I Haven’t Been Posting

Yes.  Almost a week later, I am ready to throw my gift out the window. Am I an ingrate?  No. I’m just not good with new technology.  I got a laptop.  I am typing this on my new laptop.  I cannot get this thing to function.  But eventually I will.


My mouth is also forming very bad words other than a kiss! It’s the fault of friggin’ Microsoft!

Christmas was great!  I have lots of fun stuff to share with you.  The kids are all doing well and Bonaparte and I had a wonderful time with them!

Too much food. No weight loss posts until next week, or the week after!

Hope you all had a great Holiday and here’s a song that is keeping my sense of humor going!  The International  Silver String Submarine Band!!

You will be hearing from me this weekend!!! XOXOXOXOXO

About Catherine

Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance! I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side! It's all good!

      Glad you missed me Rosemary! I needed a break to just chill with the fam and do the prep work. Things are slowly betting back to normal around here!!! XOXOXOXO!!!

    So glad you’re back. Windows 10 grrrrrrrr…….. my cursor ends up all over the page. I think I keep hitting the arrow keys on the right because the keyboard is so small. I certainly couldn’t have done my job all those years using this laptop. Touch typing is practically impossible. My photographs – they are a complete mess and I don’t seem able to put my new ones into folders with names, so trying to find something is now so so difficult. So ……. well done for managing to produce this posting.
    2017 and for the first time ever I have joined a slimming club – 16lbs to lose. This is day 3 as I only started on Sunday and yesterday we were out for lunch, but I was amazingly good, even if I say so myself. You are an example to me and I hope I can be as good as you’ve been.
    Thank you for all the joy you bring and a very happy and healthy new year to you and all your family.
    Susan D

      Susan! THANK YOU!! At first I thought there was something wrong with me for having a cursor move all over the place. It made me a curser supreme! I can’t stand Windows 10. I can’t stand Windows because every year they have to add more bells and whistles while taking away basics. Oh..don’t get me started on the photos. It took me forever to FIND my photos to post!!
      I’m glad you have joined a slimming club. 16 pounds isn’t an awful lot to lose, but boy–that 16 pounds makes a difference. We can do it together! Happy New Year to you and yours as well and a safe and healthy one at that!!! XOXOXOXO!!!

    I am so late to this post, but I just got a new laptop too and it’s always such a nightmare to get things sorted! Still can’t type properly on this new keyboard!!
