Is Mercury still in retrograde? I ask because my computer is acting crazy. My trackpad is completely out of whack, the little arrow cursor thingy has developed a life of its own, dancing randomly across the screen and opening pages I did not click on. And the machine isn't yet a year old. I'm taking it in to the Apple Store this afternoon to see what they can do. We are so reliant on these flat silver boxes that have become our portal to other worlds. Not to mention the instrument of our livelihoods. If this were anything other than a Mac, I'd say I'd picked up a virus. But Mac's don't get viruses, do they? Has anyone ever heard of this?
Our fourth was spent with two dear friends who joined us in a potluck since our plans to picnic in the park got rained out. Our son was at camp by the lake with his friends, and our daughter worked all day then went out to dinner with a fellow hotelie who is also in Chicago this summer. She posted this photo on Instagram.
And that photo below was my son when he returned home on Saturday. He spent most of the morning sleeping in a very dedicated fashion. It made me happy to see him there, snoozing peacefully in our midst.
