In the Funnies....Again

JJ is home, as is most obvious here on Grace Today. Recently we went to a large office supply store (no Google ads here, so it will remain anonymous). JJ needed a computer program and I impulsively selected a nice new padded mouse pad. The kind with the cushion so you won't get all sorts of new aches and pains from your addiction to blogging...

Back at home, things were going beautifully. I opened the plastic wrap which had been created by the same folks who designed Fort Knox, saw that the mouse pad fit perfectly on our desk's pull-out tray.... Then the steam began to boil. DJ ran to find JJ with just these words: "Come check out Mom's explosion, there's a problem with the mouse pad." Not knowing which emotion to choose (laughter or frustration) I was hugely disappointed that the new mouse pad had some sort of problem or our old mouse had some sort of problem, but the bottom line is this: the old mouse does not work on the lovely ergonomic mouse pad. JJ promptly picked it up, smiled and moved it into his room, showing it its new home with his computer.

This morning (well, JJ's morning, which is much later than my morning) I heard a call from the kitchen nook, "Mom, there's a comic for you today...."




God bless the author of "Pearls Before Swine." Nothing helps a dreary Monday morning more than a good dose of laughter --- especially when you're laughing with your son about yourself...

He is afraid with the trip I am going on that I am going to suffer severe blogging withdrawals.:)

As long as they have carrot sticks to occupy our jittery wrists, we'll be fine...

The reason your mouse might not work on your new mouse pad is because it is "wireless" - you'll just need the hard plastic part that probably came with your mousepad to lay on top of it. I'd like to hear if that works!
