Let me embarrassingly honest for a moment. On Saturday night David (husband) and I were certain something fishy was up with our electronics. Nothing poltergeist just strange. First our DVD player randomly died. This was no big surprise since really what do you expect of a $20 model. Then our DVR deleted our recorded shows. I stress our because Fabrizio's shows somehow survived. We think he's a clever 20 month old but clever enough to select and delete his parents shows? Ahhh, not likely. So my big plans for a Saturday night TV marathon vanished before my eyes leaving me feeling slightly out of sorts. I know, it's pathetic on a variety of levels. But the really panicky part of the evening came when the computer went down. This had my like flashing before my eyes. My lifeline to the adult world GONE!! With both of us (and I mean me) now in a full panic we scrambled around trying to make sense of the situation. We pulled out all of our technical knowledge and were less than delighted to find out that we are very very limited. So sad! The embarrassing part comes now...I happened to be on the phone with my mom, who offered to come over and have a look. Yeah, she had it working in less than 5 minutes. Evidently this 63yr old did what any logical person would do and checked the the connections. That's right, the damn monitor got unplugged! Our poor parents wasted thousands of dollars on 2 college degrees and obviously didn't get their monies worth. God I feel dumb!!
