Friday Fragments July13

Gosh it's Friday again. I think I say this every week. Time to fragment with Mrs. 4444.

Mommy's Idea

The best news of all this week is that I am writing to you on a brand new MacBook Pro.  No I did not win the lottery, it is a replacement by my place of employment  for a 4 year old Mac.  But it is indeed  wonderful.  I am still getting used to it - certain things are not quite like my old HP.  I will still do much University work on the HP because it has most of my files.

I spent more time with second Son this week.  He gets overlooked a bit, with developmentally delayed #1 son demanding attention, and the Girl who thinks the world revolves around her.  So we went out for ice cream which was not good for the waistline but good for getting to know him more.

And it's been cooler this week, hurrah.

I go to the same grocery store every week and I know the plan of that store in my head.  It's easy just to slide in and get milk and say chocolate chips for cookies.  But guess what?  This week they have started a 'reset' of the store and now everything will move and I will wander disoriented down the aisles for hours.  I made a quick trip yesterday and it is partially torn up now.  Just one of those little things, but yes it does affect your day.

I live in a political 'battleground' state and the TV ads have started.  What a tone they have! Viciously knocking down your opponent does NOT impress me.  This applies to both parties.  No other political comments from me, I promise.  I'll just say it's a long time until early Nov.

Mac - the best IMHO - I been a Mac fan since the 90's. The stores intentionally rearrange the shelves because they want you to take longer in the store. Longer in the store more chance you'll do an impulse buy. Grocery store layout is a marketing science.

We just switched grocery stores, so I am always lost!

I hate when they decide to switch a grocery store around. I always make my list in order and when they do that I'm lost for weeks.

I am jealous about the new Apple. I have used Apple products for a very long time. Have fun with it!

I abhor the way all of that money is being used by politicians just to slam each other.

Yay! For a new computer and cooler weather.
