Wintah in Ahlinton

Woke up this morning to snow, snow and more snow. It just now stopped coming down (say, around 3:00 pm-ish). Aram went to play with his parents' snow blower. Actually, he and his brother have conspired to make it an appliance their father will absolutely want to use. He's in his late 70s and still goes out to shovel, bad back and all. Not good but, like my husband, he's stubborn and resistant to change.

I'll let my husband fight that battle, though. For now, I've got an afternoon to putter and decided to finally bring my laptop computer to my office upstairs. That means considerable moving and vacuuming, but that's been long overdue. I'm happily sitting in my new location with printer and scanner actually attached to the laptop – first time ever! No more running up and downstairs from one computer to the other to get something scanned or printed. And, if/when I need to, I can disconnect all the cords from the laptop and take it on the road.

It's still a tangle of wires, but at least there's less dust. I'm trying to figure out how to handle all the cords, or at least figure out which one is which once I pull out the lot to take the laptop on the road. Hmmm. maasking tape and a felt-tip pen?

  1. Hmmm. I keep my jungle of cords super-organized and can follow what connects to what so i've really no great suggestion. For what it's worth, I find it helpful twisting color-coded or otherwise identifying twisties around one or both ends of a connecting cord (i.e., red for VCR, green for TV, black for printer). I get 'em at the market (produce, bakery sections). Masking tape with identifying marks would work just as well.
