More Computer Woes

Well, my life just gets better and better.

Sat down at the computer this morning only to be staring at a completely black screen. Some time after midnight my fairly new (less than one year old) monitor apparently decided to commit suicide.

So for the interim I will use my husband's laptop - and have no access to my Word documents or digital pictures. I'm heading out of town in a couple days anyway and just cannot deal with this now. Perhaps when I get back I'll be able to figure out how to get some of my stuff into this one (won't he love that!) as a back up and will deal with whatever the problem is with mine.

Oh - and did I mention that last night my husband came home, sat down close to me on the couch, lowered his voice and said "Deb, I've got some bad news for you." Well, of course, my thoughts went immediately to death - what else could account for this type of mannerism? (Had he just run over the dog????)

Turns out that the car, which I'm to drive on the above mentioned trip, needed service - the "Service Engine" light had come on. (deeeeeeeeep Yoga breath . . . . .)

So taking the car in for service shot most of this morning, and also messes up my Friday plans. Hmmmmm, what else can I complain about! Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will have more interesting info to post, along with more paintings and/or pictures.

What is that saying - "the best laid plans go astray" - (and I had big plans!)

By the way, today was my husband's birthday - I found the perfect card for him - it was in booklet form, all about (those of you who are a bit squeamish might want to skip this part) . . . FARTS! (If you knew him, you'd understand!!!)

Here's hoping you are achieving your art goals better and faster than I am! Happy Painting, and watch for my return in a couple weeks.

Ah, Deb, I feel for you - we had lightning hit a modem once and we also had a complete crash of the system once. It took days to get everything back up and running again and so much grey hair!! My plans have gone awry, too, with a cancellation of a big trip because of my back pain and just plain old age and decrepitude!! Have a good trip, and like Scarlett just remember that "tomorrow is another day!"

Thanks Rhonda! Of course this happens just when I'm starting to get into this blogging "thing", too.
I love Scarlett - and the South - so thanks for that memory flash!
