Where was I ??
Where was I??
Before I got so RUDELY interrupted!!
I swear – (but I won’t - even though I REALLY want to ;)) -
And maybe it's just me - but -
I have a HUGE love/hate relationship with computers –
I LOVE them when they work –
I HATE them when they don’t –
I HATE messing with them – unless I WANT to –
As you probably know already (if you read Thursday’s post) –
Monday the keyboard on my laptop stopped working!!
WHAT A PAIN!!
First it was my mouse - then my printer - then my laptop!!
Normally - a broken keyboard is no biggy - just get another one. But we all know that a laptop is virtually useless without the keyboard - the mouse can only do so much. You certainly can't TYPE with it! And it didn't help when the phone tech support guy told us to hit a certain KEY to get to some screen - HOW do you DO that if the KEYboard doesn't work?? DUH!!
My Other Half and I spent ALL WEEK trying to get my new laptop to the same place - same settings - as the old one. It is SUCH A PAIN!! Like everyone else - most of my settings just evolved over time - new programs - new updates – new settings - etc. We spent Monday trying to figure out if my laptop was worth fixing – deciding that it wasn’t – and then trying to find an affordable replacement. We spent Tuesday trying to get Windows configured right – Wednesday reloading programs - and Thursday trying to get EQ7 to find my projects.
I repeat - WHAT A PAIN!!
The only reason I had posts on Monday, Tuesday and Friday was that they had been "scheduled" on Sunday. Wednesday night I was able to write one for Thursday morning – but without any photos. I wasn't “there” yet.
I really don’t have the patience for this stuff anymore.
I just want to sit down -
check everyone's blog to see what they are doing –
write something for my own blog –
sew for a while -
take a picture or two or twenty ;)) -
and then take my nap.
Computer stuff just frustrates the crap out of me.
It’s like information overload and my brain is full or something. ;))
Even just talking about it – makes my head hurt –
Where was I??
Oh, yeah – the sashing –
Talk to you later - gotta go – gotta SEW –
