After realizing this morning I had gotten up for work and didn’t need to because I had the day off, it took me awhile to settle in.
It was like my mind and body had to make the adjustment….weird. I thought that after knowing I can relax, I would feel like I usually do on a day off.
I tried to get a little more sleep this morning but that wasn’t going to happen, but I was able to nap around 1:00…just a cat nap.
I reinstalled some software on the pc.
I did some window shopping online for some pc components. I wondered which would be better right now to cut cost, an uprade or a laptop. I have to research that. I will eventually get a laptop. I like that the lap will be portable.
If I upgrade the pc first, I want to get a touch screen monitor to get the full effect of Windows 7.
I made a point of doing as little as possible today and I do believe I succeeded.
Oh, I almost forgot… the party pictures are on Darcel’s facebook page, so I won’t link there, but I will link to her post for Nakiah’s birthday.
That’s all I have for now except that,
Today was a good day.
This was a busy weekend and fulfilling. A birthday and party which I will link to tomorrow.
I thought I would have this post up long before now, but I was messing around with the pc. I opened it up and tried to get a couple of hard drives formated. But I think they are dead and useless.
My DVD burner’s tray won’t open without the help of an inserted pin in the front of the burner. When I do insert a disc, according to my pc, no disc is in the tray.
Now that I think about it, a lot of these components are considered old for pc standards. Some are over 5 years, some are older. I believe the newest items I have installed are my memory and my OS which are less that a year old.
This is not a good time for an upgrade although I have been thinking about it for a couple of years now. Some suggest I go with a Mac laptop.
Whatever I decide, I will take my time and research. I do that when it comes to a purchase like this.
I’ll make do with what I have for now; it’s gotten me this far, I’m sure it will take me farther….I know the pc repair guy.
I’m winding down this day and have some cleanup before I retire to bed. Sorry about the lack of pictures in this post, ….but
I do hope the beginning of your week is pleasurable in some way,
In my post yesterday, I wrote how I was having pc problems. Now I’m having a blog problem? Well not really a blog problem, but I did lose my signature.
For those of you who have been reading my posts, I’m sure you remember seeing my blue signature at the end of each one. Notice something missing?
I think some unseen force is trying to bring me down!
It’s not gonna work! I will not let these past couple of days get the best of me. I will however conquer whatever it is that is hanging over me right now.
It is somewhat discouraging but not the end of the world.
Ladies don’t take offense to what I’m about to suggest. Maybe if I let my feminine side out and boo hoo and just get downright hysterical, I’ll be left alone. Naaaaa. That won’t work.
The only thing I can say right now is…what in the world?
Reggie (It’s just not the same)
No…it isn’t people, it’s things. It started last night before bed. My pc is not recognizing my DVD burner. I have a spare DVD drive and tried to attach that but it didn’t work either. I know the drives are good so it is my motherboard or power supply. I’m leaning toward the board.
It also affected some, not all files on my hard drive…how?…ugh!!
I don’t need this right now, but I have to figure this out.
Finally got the pc back up and running smooth. I had a couple of system files on two other hard drives. The 300G went south for good. I realized if I didn’t do something to fix this, I would be having trouble again. Before, I was just doing a format of the hard drives. I decided to delete the partitions on drives that had systems files; that way I would start clean. I did that and now I’m installing software and getting things back in order.
I do have copies of my designs, but I can’t use them for print. They will be my templates for getting caught up.
I did a post on my daughter’s blog, Guest Post Friday . I was hoping to come home from work to see how it went but it turns out I had to fix a few things. I got that done and now I’m getting ready to bury myself into some music and the pc…. a lot of work to do.
One thing I do like about this past bad experience?…..I didn’t let it get to me. I didn’t have to spend any extra money or lose any sleep; I lost files, but I have copies, I lost a lot of time from designing–working and working on the pc–, but knowing what needs to be done and having something to work from, makes that task enjoyable.
This was the debut of The Bottomless Heart….yes, catch the link above. I hadn’t planned on bringing it out this soon, but after a short time thinking, felt it was the perfect time.
