Laptop

I had to resurrect my laptop yesterday. By that I mean wipe everything-EVERYTHING- off of it and reload Windows from scratch. A reset. But to me it felt more like killing my laptop and bringing it back to life. Without all the electricity/lightning stuff going on. I'd had this laptop for 5 years. Which doesn't... Continue Reading →

Hmmm

As I go through life, things come up or happen that make me wonder. So I thought maybe someone out there might have the same questions and maybe even some answers. Like why do bugs run toward the house when you're hosing off the porch? I don't get it. I'll hose them off into the... Continue Reading →

So Sangfroid

Social Situations

I hope it's not some kind of phobia thing. I can live through them. I've made myself go to some of those things... Continue Reading →

Oh the Wind

Well, the wind is INSANE again today. You know the song: "OOOOOOOklahoma! Where the wind comes sweeping down the plains." It's no joke. It was pretty bad on Friday night. The screens on the windows were banging around. There were all sorts of wind related noises, including a whistle from the door. Sometimes it feels... Continue Reading →

A Change

I've been thinking about changing the name of my blog for a while now. I've never really liked the name "Sprawly", but at the time I got tired of trying to think of a name, gave up, and went with that. I'm not going to change the URL of this blog, so the name change... Continue Reading →
