In Which I Explain

Hey ya'll. Just so you know, I am still alive and I have a very good--well, actually, it's a bad reason--why I have neglected the ol' blog for more than a couple of days in a row.

My computer has the bubonic plague. I haven't been able to get on the internet with it for more than five seconds (before it screams at me and all these pop-up windows appear and I have to shut down) since Saturday night. I do have the option of using the hubby's computer (which is what I'm on now) or the kids' computer, however, none of my programs or bookmarks or anything are on these computers, so I feel like I've lost half my brain.

Sunday, K-man was sick and I had to stay home with him while the other half of the family went to church. And all day on Sunday, and every day since, my computer has been running anti-stuff. Seriously, it keeps re-infecting itself. One day I deleted 679 (no exaggeration!). Today I deleted another 356. I'm pretty sure it is going to have to be totally wiped. But no worries, in the 4 days since the plague hit, I've been scooting all the documents and pictures onto backup discs and the EHD. So annoying. But at least now everything is backed up.

Monday, Tuesday, pretty much repeats of Sunday except K-man is feeling better. Last night was choir practice so that was a good chunk of the night. Today I ran out and got the raggedy ends trimmed off my hair and then ran by and picked up bread and milk...and okay...a Dr. Pepper. But I only got it just in case I got desperate and needed one. (Desperate times, desperate measures, you know.) We put it in the pantry, not in the fridge. =)

In my digi scrappin' life, I'm hosting a challenge over at Polka Dot Plum this week....if you do digi-scrapping, hop over and join me. It's a fun one! Lucky for me, I had those ready to go before the plague took over my computer. I've also got the New Release Wednesday blog posts this month on the PDP Blog, so go check those out, too. There's some cute new kits out!

I also put home made lasagna in the oven not quite an hour ago, so I should probably go see how that's coming along and go put KC's computer back since it's almost time for him to be home. LOL. I also need to go back downstairs and see how many plagues need to be deleted from the last run of scans on my computer. So....that's my update. And that's why I haven't been around to anyone else's blog lately either.

I'm so ready for my computer to be healthy again. *fingers crossed* for it (and for the lasagna, that I just caught a whiff of....smells pretty good, So till next time...

Miss ya'll...for real!


  1. I've been wondering about ya! I almost sent you a txt today but didn't just in case you were busy with sick kids or something. Looks like I was partially right. You've had a sick kid and a sick computer. I know it's frustrating! Hope you get everything worked out and running again soon.

  2. Your last blog said "on top of it." I was thinking you now have "fell off of it." LOL Sorry for the problems. Love you

    PS If you drink the Dr. Pepper then you have "fallen off of it" again.

  3. lol...yes, I was thinking the other day...hmmm...I'm not so on top of things anymore. lol. and um...i only had HALF a glass of dr pepper...and I topped it off with lots of water, think I'll be okay? =) =)

  4. ooohhh.... computer problems = not fun!



Please tell me what you think...but keep it spam free and friendly, or it will be deleted. Thanks! =)
