An alternate title could be:
Trying to survive without a computer for a week/last week of school craziness/A Birthday Party/Welcome Summer/Back Seat Driving/and Meeting Famous People.
I have to admit, it has been very eye opening and cleansing for me to be without my computer. I am typing this post on my husband's computer, which probably means, I won't be able to finish it before he has to reclaim it to take it to work tomorrow, and I won't be able to post pictures.
My computer was having problems the last month. When we got back from Indy, it started doing some crazy things, and finally last weekend, it completely crashed. I took it in with the intention of having my files backed up and getting the virus or whatever it was cleaned off. Come to find out, they computer was completely wiped clean, and they had to recover my files. There were able to recover some of them, but in order to access them I would have to reload all of my programs, including Windows. Only, one problem. The CD drive went bad. So, I couldn't reload any programs. Needless to say my computer was useless. To make a long story short, I ended up buying a new computer. I know I got hosed, and I paid too much, and I'm pretty sure they could have fixed my computer, but didn't because they were trying to sell me one. But, I was tired of going in to the damn store everyday, only to get the run around.
They are good at what they do. They just badger you, refusing to actually fix the old computer until you cave.
I'll pick it up tomorrow. It better be worth it.
So, going through the week without the computer has been very revealing to me. I can't believe how much free time I had. And that was with two monkeys out of school. It made me realize just how much time I spent on the computer. So, I've decided to use this experience to reset. I'll still be around, but just not as much. I need to focus more on what's important most to me in my life. And, while I enjoy the friendships I've made from blogging, this certainly can't take priority in my life like it has in the past.
That said, I want to report about recent events in my life/family.
But, since I can't put pictures on, I'll have to post about it later, once I have my router configured onto my new computer. Hopefully by tomorrow.
See you soon!!
