It all started last week with some computer glitches. Hours and hours of tech support with India resulted, and then I got the lovely news that my optical drive needs to be replaced...and oh wait, my hard drive is failing too! Never mind the fact my computer is only six months old and it took me hours and hours to get everything set up not to mention several hours of tech support from my handy local tech guy setting up software and such. Luckily he was able to copy my old hard drive so the transition should go smoothly when Dell actually shows up to do the replacements. Yes, I had a hissy and my Indian friend drove me to tears as I am not good with typing in commands and turning off my computer and restarting it for hours on end while trying to manage the kids and a nasty to-do list. I recovered though, and was making out okay temporarily on my old Mac. Yesterday that all went to pot though when the internet stopped working all together. Guess what I got to do for over two hours this morning? Talk to tech support for Telus trying to figure out the problem only to learn that our modem has stopped working and needs to be replaced. If all goes well both the Dell and the Telus repair dudes should come to visit tomorrow afternoon and get things back on track but honestly I am wondering if the technology gods somewhere are trying to tell me something!
Now I am parked at the public library while one kiddo takes guitar lessons and the others pick out films to sign out. I even squeezed in a quick head shots photo shoot for a local Realtor while here. Just wanted to touch base in case you are wondering why I might not have responded to your emails and such.
Besides all those rotten hassles that are making hissy fits a daily occurrence life is swell. We had a great long weekend with many a free movies thanks to the General Mills cereal box promotion. The night skies have been gorgeously lit up by a canopy of bright stars thanks to the temperature dropping again. Speaking of night skies be sure if you live in Vernon or are nearby to check out the new Space exhibit at the Okanagan science center, it's amazing and the boys are already asking to go back.
Time to pick up from guitar lessons...so glad both boys are loving music so much these days, listening to them practice is a great hissy fit remedy.
