Here We Go Again – Maybe.
My very first post on this blog was when my daughter came home from the hospital after undergoing emergency surgery for an incarcerated hernia. Lately, she’s had the flu, which I now have, thankyouverymuch, and we suspect her deep coughing has given her another hernia. She has a weakened abdominal wall from several stomach surgeries and she’s fearing that she’s going to have to have another. I’m trying to help her not build this up out of proportion until she sees the doctor. I hope for her, and for me, that she’s ok.
On top of this, yesterday my computer totally crapped out on me. I got at least six “blue screens of death” – that screen that tells you Windows has shut down to prevent your computer from blowing up in your lap. Then, finally, I just simply got the black screen with a message that said “Unable to boot operating system”. Great. Panic city. What was I going to do without a laptop? My whole income depends on a computer and all my work was on the old one.
Best Buy came through with a screaming deal on a sweet little HP laptop. (Looks like the one above, but white with a sweet silver keyboard.) So I’m back in business. Somehow, I’ll have to figure out how to transfer my files from the old laptop to this new one – including all my pictures. Thankfully, I had backed up most of my photos to disk a few weeks ago so there wasn’t too much on there.
On the bright side, it sure is fun playing on a new laptop that doesn’t burn your leg because it’s overheating, and you don’t have to wait and brew coffee while the windows open or the typing catches up with you. Ain’t technology grand?
I’ll keep you posted on my daughter.
