My laptop went kapoot. Again. There’s something with me and laptops, we simply don’t see eye to eye for more than two years. I paid the hefty premium for a macbook over a regular laptop because I heard they perform better and are less prone to breakage but since the day I purchased the laptop I’ve had issues with the logicboard, the track pad, and lo and behold two years later kapoot. Luckily its fixable [for a tidy fee] but until then I’m computerless except today when hubby brought his work laptop home. The genius at the apple genius bar thinks my chronic laptop issue might be because I don’t charge on surge protectors and while my particular issue at the moment with my mac is not surge protector related, it’s something worth trying as a new laptop every two years is an expensive habit. How often do you go through them?
First world problems, I know.
Something strange this way happened as my son now sleeps in until 9am every day [knock on wood, throw salt over shoulder, hang evil eye amulet over crib]. Considering we began our mornings around 6:45, this is a lovely new development. However, corresponding with this new development is a befuddlement as to what time to put the little guy down for his nap. He still wants a nap but I am not sure what time as noon is way too early after one wakes at 9am. Do your little ones wake at the blessed hour of nine or so? What time do they go down for naps? When did your little one stop taking naps? My best friend still naps her daughter who is five but another friend said her doctor urged her to quit at 28 months but
I need he needs those naps! It can’t stop!!
I am no Suzy Homemaker so cleaning tips are not something you’ve ever seen on this blog and likely will never see again but I had to share my most recent cleaning discovery should it be of interest to someone reading like did you know vinegar plus water creates the best cleaning product out there? Particularly for hard wood floors? I’ve used so many different cleaning solutions on these hardwood floors but they always looked a bit off until I tried this combination today and voila— smooth shiny floors you could eat a meal on without any harsh chemicals– and vinegar? It’s cheap.
In other cleaning enlightenments the best way to clean glass? Use regular old windex or vinegar + water + a dash of dish soap but the key in amazing clean? Use newspapers to wipe, not paper towels. It has changed my life. Streak-free wonderfully clean windows. It may be that this news is akin to me telling you that pedicures help toes look pretty but if this is news to you too, try it– its not only greener, and cheaper, the effects are cleaner.
