Love/Hate

I woke up this morning ready to start my regular routine. My girls are often late-sleepers, so it is during the earlier morning hours that I take advantage of my time on the computer. Many mornings Kam is awake and keeping me company, but sometimes, sometimes I can even get her back to sleep, and that is typically when I indulge in my blog reading, commenting, and occasionally, writing.

Well, not today friends. Though it does look like {with a LOT of patience} I may be able to get this post out. It seems as though my laptop has died. Poor girl, she's just not working this morning. I tried all the usual tricks, and she just can't muster up the energy to start up. I've called technical support and after much trouble-shooting they think the hard drive is shot. Grrreeaatttt. We do have a desktop {obviously, that is what I'm typing on right now}, but we've been having major issues with it over the last few weeks as well. Let's just say he's pretty fickle. It won't surprise me in the least if he shuts off right in the middle of my typing. Aaarrrggghhhhhhh. How is it that I can have such an intense love/hate relationship with my computers? {Oh, and did I mention that my video camera isn't working either??? Electronics are not my friends at the moment}

Okay, whine-fest over. Basically I wanted to type this up to let any of you who are interested know that I have not fallen off the planet. I do so love to keep up with your blogs, as do I love to keep up my own. I had great things planned for this week. I am coming up on my 100th post. This is 92, I believe. Also, I may or may not be having a birthday this coming week. I thought I would combine the two, and post a GIVEAWAY! Alas, that may not happen if my computer doesn't get its act together, ahem.

So, that is that. Have a fabulous weekend!

Having been there/done that VERY recently (replaced the video camera, PC hard drive AND power supply all within 3 months) all I can say is MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP! and pray :) I swear electronics are built to die within 3 years so you are forced to buy new ones (but the hubbies are secretly happy to have to do so!)

It is so funny that you wrote this post, because I just posted before reading this about my computer dilemmas and why I have been MIA. :)

I was down for nine days and I miss that time off from work as well. I know computer issues suck, I hope you are back up and running perfectly soon. I am at my 100 post now and don't know what to do. I can not post a 100 things about myself. I would pas out!
