So far this weekend I have done piles of laundry, gone to the farmers market for cucumbers, carrots, strawberries and green beans.
I have discovered that while I am good at multi-tasking, I cannot spin dog hair, read blogs, drink hot cocoa and keep an eye on the sporting event The Professor is watching on the TV all at the same time. Three of the four maybe. But an accident is destined to happen under these circumstances. And it did. I spilled the hot cocoa on the laptop.
We went in to hyper mode and grabbed computer, rags and wet cloths and sopped up the damage. The cocoa spilled on the futon where the laptop was sitting and down on to the grey carpet. I cleaned the carpet and futon cover while The Professor dealt with the computer.
So far, it seems there is no major damage. The keys on the keyboard are sticking but I've applied the "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog's back" exercise over and over to unstick the keys. I may have to purchase a new keyboard if the keys don't loosen up. I was hoping to use my tutoring money to buy more memory cards for my camera to use during our upcoming vacation trip or maybe spend it on exciting trinkets (just kidding, I don't shop much on vacation or any other time). Oh well, one simply cannot live without a working computer, can one?
And the absolute worst part of this disaster? I had made the cocoa with the Jeff de Bruges Cacao en Poudre from France and the only thing that enjoyed the exquisite flavor was my keyboard.
