Thursday night I tried to work on the computer but it was one of those times where I was so exhausted that it was taking me twice the time to do anything as it normally would. My eyes were crossing, my head was bobbing, and there’s no telling what kind of work I would chug out so I decided that it would be a better decision to go on to bed, get a good night’s sleep and then wake up bright and early and tackle the work in the morning. So, Friday morning comes along and I jump out of bed feeling much better and ready to get all kinds of work knocked out. I head to the computer and the power light is on but nothing shows up on the screen. I try a few things and it’s still not working. Luckily, my husband is a computer guy and as soon as he’s up I ask him to take a look. The bad news he says is that he thinks the video card went out. Okay, what do we need to do to fix it? He says that he has an extra one and asked if I needed the computer that day. Ummmmmm yes! I probably yelled. I’m so behind…emails out the wazoo, books, cards and storyboards to design, sneak peeks and sessions to edit…yes, I need it! So he starts working on it. I was scared to ask but finally I asked how it was going. Well, not so good. It wasn’t the video card. He suspected the mother board and/or the drive. He asked if I wanted him to just kind of fix what we had or rebuilt it much better to what I’ve been begging for…a faster, and more storage computer. I answer that I want the best!!

He went into work for a couple of hours then drove across Houston for the new computer parts, and worked late into the night to put it together and load everything back onto it. I’m finally able to get on here. It’s a little different…I’m going to have to get used to the differences in looks and a little how it operates (he updated the operating system) but so far so good. He did tease me a little and called me old because I’m a creature of habit and it’s hard for me to embrace changes. But, it’s sooooooo much faster! So, $500 and a little over 24 hours and I’m good to go. So, if you’re wondering about your stuff I’m getting started back up to tackling everything!!:):)

I hadn’t seen this sweet family in quite a while and they’ve grown. They’re now a sweet family of 4:)
