Sounds like it's been a rough day...time for something a little stronger than coffee...

Enjoy your weekend.

You may not be needed for email but take my word for it, what she'll need from you in the coming years won't be anything as simple as email.

Stay strong, stay steady, it will get rocky. But the rewards of making it past the coming years is seeing them all grown up, responsible beautiful adults, maybe even family's of their own.

I don't know how to describe it. Having them come over to hang out just because they want to spend time with me, to call just because they want to talk.

Then have a grandchild, wow, when I kiss his cheeks, cuddle with him, care for him as only a grandma can do, I have no words for the feeling. It's as close to heaven I think I can get on earth.

Oh, gosh, I'm getting mushy, sorry. I just love my family so much sometimes I can get carried away and just write and write and write...

She's just hitting her stride. Now is the time you really have to be there. Technology comes easily to children, it is the emotional component that is so hard for them to assimilate. But I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. Have a good weep for another milepost passed, and look forward to the next one.

If only mine would resign themselves to being happy with sending email. I can rebuild a COMputer for them, and within 30 days, it's a turd. Slower then molasses in January and more infected with spyware and other crap then one could possible imagine. I try to unscrew it, but alas, it's screwed. AIM is your enemy. Don't go near it, and keep 'em away from it.

Key: if she wants a lower mortgage rate or some really cheap prescription drugs, I know about some folks who might be willing to email her with some info... ;-)

RedNeck: Next time give them a cheap Linux box instead of a Windows box. They'll have net/email access without Internet Explorer, AIM or any of the malware magnets. Then have a Windows box that's not connected to the net so they can play games and whatever.

Yeah Zonker, but then I'd have to listen to 'em bitch about not havin all that crap. It'd be easier on me to tell 'em to go to the library and chat with their friends, or heaven forbid, use the antique telephone thing...;)
