I was attached to several projects on my Macbook Pro but detached from them because of usage. They are still under my account but I can't for the life of me figure out how to attach back to them on my desktop.

I assume by "projects" you actually mean "workunits" (a "project" is something like SETI@Home or Rosetta@Home; a "workunit" is the packets of data a project sends you to be crunched).

If you aborted a workunit on your Macbook Pro, you told the server you don't want them anymore so the server will send them out to someone else. They will show in your account until the workunit is validated by the other computers the workunit is sent to and assimilated into the Master Science Database.

You cannot transfer workunits from one computer to the next by aborting them. In fact, you cannot transfer individual workunits between computers at all (at least not easily).

No, I detached from Milkway@home and can't figure out how to attach back to it.

So you used Tools menu ... and then ...
(At what point in procedure did you had problem. Say "I clicked this, I chose that then XYZ happened")
