Last Wednesday, I tried to turn on the computer, but when trying to open Windows he got stuck... Like all people who have absolutely no clue about computers, I tried turning it off a few times in the hope that one of those times it would miraculously start working again (really, why would the fifth try give another result than the fourth, but anyway ...)
I had to get it to the shops to have it repaired and they found out spyware was causing the problem (though I have one of the best anti-virus programs ...) Anyway, I was without computer for three whole days ... disaster!!!! I was so scared I had lost some of my pictures ... my computer had been acting funny even the days before, so I had made back-ups of my pics, but after the complete shut-down I discovered I had forgotten several folders. My husband tried to tell me this wasn't a disaster, followed by a long list of real disasters, which didn't make me feel any better. On the contrary, I felt as depressed as before and even more so, because now I felt depressed and guilty as well for not having a real "disaster-" reason for feeling depressed LOL. Anyway, remember my LO with the glass having to be half full ... mine was half empty again, I just can't help it, I always think things will turn out bad.
In this case, they didn't ... I still have all my pictures, more than that, all programs are still good and running, I just had to plug him in and I could start working again. Unfortunately, our electricity started to act up, which meant someone had to check this out yesterday, which meant ... you guessed it ... no computer aaargh!!!
My house is a mess, but I don't care, today I'm going to read all the new entries of my blogging friends and maybe even start on some scrapping of my own. Today is all about me!!
Of course, I can never catch up ... I have over 300 emails in my inbox, most of them posts of new LO's of my friends at scrapbook.com. I'll never be able to answer them all, which kills me, I love receiving comments so I always try to leave comments myself, but in this case, I'll just have to delete them and try to catch up as they make new posts...
Sorry about nagging about this ladies, I just had to get this of my chest!
Now on to something a bit more fun:
Check out this blog, over at Gauche Alchemy they are giving away so much stuff, you won't believe it. All you have to do to be included in the draw is put the link on your blog and leave a comment, so what are you waiting for!! You have until 2/11. Their February kit will be (or has been) revealed on Monday, 2/9, so have a look at that as well!
This was the first time I saw this blog, and I like it, there's loads of inspiration to be found there. I even found some tutorials on techniques and photoshop editing, so I'll definitely be following up on this one.
Hope all is well with you my blogging friends, talk to you later!
