Although it is not uncommon for me to take a Sunday or Monday off… yesterday was not intentional.
You see, my computer… my lovely, fast, expensive, keeper of all things I need because I never thought to back anything up because it was NEW last Christmas… died.
I spent all of yesterday, trying to resurrect the beast. I did everything it said to do on the Internet. “What to do when your iMac has the white screen of death?”… I did it all, several times. I cried. I was frustrated. I begged. I pleaded.
To no avail.
All I can say is that I’m glad I was already done with our taxes.
So… Hubby is taking the big box of computer down to the repair place. If I can afford the repair (thinking hard drive failed), I will fix him and bring him home. If I cannot afford the fix, I will be coming to you from this – who I am typing upon as we speak – old computer – clearly a better computer – but very slow and frustrating in its own right. Still, I’m lucky that I have this old reliable and that I’ve kept her fairly updated. It wasn’t too hard to bring her over to my desk and bring the retired librarian back to the stacks.
YOU NEED A HORSE PICTURE…
I didn’t want to make this post all about computers and nothing about horses… so here is a pic I took yesterday, when I went outside to clear my head during this double meltdown (mine and the computer’s).
I thought it might be a good idea to put Wrigley in with Dalton, because they are young boys and might like to play together.
Wrong. Double Wrong. Infinitely Incorrect Judgement. Story tomorrow.
