Have you noticed my sporadic blogging this summer?
Well, two words can sum it up best...computer crashed!
It was a slow death...one that started back in June. Mind you, this is my NEW desktop computer that we are talking about!
After many headaches, wasted time on the phone with different software/security/digital phone/cable providers, etc. we saved ourselves the expense of having to ship the computer to Texas to be "fixed" and had an IT professional from from the local corporate world work on it. It only took Jim one afternoon!
All fixed...the only problem is that everything is gone. Not my pics...b/c those have been backed-up externally and also stored off site. But gone are all my digital scrapbooking kits that I purchased and all the freebies that I downloaded. Now I know why they recommend saving and storing off to a CD!!!
Anyway, we removed Windows Vista and installed XP and I haven't had a single problem this week. I am back to facebooking and blogging! YEAH!!! Can't wait to get those SUMMER vacation photos, 1st day of school pics, and this weekend's boating/camping trip posted!
So, if I haven't been visiting you lately, you now know why! I could only blog/visit when I could use my husband's work computer, and that wasn't often! (My husband swears I "ruined" the computer from blogging/digital scrapbooking, but I disagree!) Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things!
P.S. TWO MAJOR EVENTS COMING UP...Someone's turning 40, ;) and Eli's open heart surgery is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 4th (Labor Day weekend)!!!
