The mouse stops working

A few days ago, my mouse fell on the floor because my nephews are playing in my room.  The four-year-old nephew jumping on the bed and accidentally hit the mouse that is on the top of my computer table beside my bed.  I get angry at the oldest niece because I always told them to not play jumping on my bed.  The right side of the mouse slightly opens and I tried to fix it.  I am glad that after fixing it the mouse still functioning.  However, last night when I am doing my online routine, the mouse just stops working. I have tried to fix it myself but this time it does not work.  My gracious, I do not have extra to buy the new one.

I am sad because I do not have the extra mouse, and I am not comfortable using a touchpad.  I can have finished my online routine fast using the mouse.  But now that I do not have the mouse, it will be difficult for me to do my online routine.  I am glad that my sister in on leave.  I borrowed her mouse for the meantime since it is her son who broke my mouse.lol, I also asked the sister if I could borrow money too so I can buy the new mouse for my laptop.  I am still waiting for her answer till now.  I should have asked her to give to me her mouse then.haha!

Downloaded Videos for the Nephew

The nephew is prohibited to use any gadgets since he started his therapy.  He lacks in communication skill because he is too much exposed to gadgets.  It is very difficult because gadgets can make him stay still at home.  When I am busy doing chores at home, I gave him the tablet so he won’t be bugging me or make a lot of mess in the room and living area.  I downloaded several games on my laptop so the nephew has more games to play at choose. Which is not good.  In a way, I am blaming myself for this because I let him play with the games in the tablet for hours.  I should have talked to him more often to develop his communication skills.

The nephew’s addiction to gadgets came back a few days ago.  He saw one of his classmates at school playing with gadgets, and suddenly he asked me about my tablet.  He always bugs me to play with my tablet but my answer is no.  Because I did not let him play with the tablet, he bugs his younger sister (10 months).  I have decided to let him play with the tablet, but I deleted the previous games and downloaded educational videos.  Videos that will help the nephew develop his communication skills and, for him familiarized with letters, numbers, colors, shapes, manners, how to count and more.  So far, he likes it.

To make the waiting fruitful

Because of the law imposed by the city government of not allowing the kids to ride the motorcycle, I have to send and fetch the four-year-old nephew at school.  His father can’t send him to school anymore, only the eldest son.  The nephew’s class session is only two hours, I thought of wait for the dismissal or if I will go home after sending him off, I might stick in the traffic and will not be able to come back on the dismissal time.  My daily routine is messed up I must say.  I have to wake up two hours early than the usual, for I have to attend the eight months old niece. I have to get her ready before leaving her under my father’s supervision for two hours.

Two hour of waiting without doing anything is boring.  On my first week, I felt sleepy waiting because I did not bring my tablet.  My companion when I feel bored.  My two hours is wasted, too bad.  Now I have brought my tablet with me.  My two hours will be fruitful for I will be busy writing new post for my blogs.  Hopefully I will get to write many while waiting for the nephew.  Time is gold and wasting it is not good either.  My idle time waiting will be fruitful now.

Payable in 12 months

Infected files… Two words that made me decide to buy a new laptop instead of bringing it back to the technician who fixed it twice.  I cannot afford to spend more money and will end get busted again.  I have spent as much as buying a new laptop fixing it and I regret it.  I should not be stubborn when the sister told me to buy a new one instead of bringing it to the technician.  I am so pissed thinking of the bad decision I made then.  I should have listened to my sister then.  This is what I get from being so stubborn. Well, I just do not want to give up the old laptop which has sentimental value.  It is a remembrance from working so hard in blogging for the past four years.  Unfortunately, I end up giving it up.

I have a new laptop now, oh, it’s a netbook.  I prefer the smaller size and lighter one so it is easy to carry and not heavy.  Since I do not have money, I am using the credit card of my older sister.  I picked a not so expensive unit so I will not have a headache paying it.LOL!  It is an installment and I have to pay it in 12 months.  I hope and pray that more opportunity comes so I will be able to pay new netbook and internet connection.  I am enjoying my new partner in blogging now and it makes me happy.  It is fast, pretty and slim.
