Status Update....

Happy Cyber Monday!! Can you believe that tomorrow is December?!?! Wow, this year has gone by so very quickly. The days are truly getting away from me. (I hear that happens when you reach a certain age...)

Well, a few days ago, I posted about a series of catastrophies that befell my laptop. It wasn't pretty. And it still isn't....

I think anyone reading this can imagine my frustration at this point. Using vivid imagination, insert your mind's version of a totally frazzled woman hyped up on too much caffeine, destroying a computer (any computer) with a ballping hammer...

My laptop definitely has a virus and it's doing weird things, like asking me for my ATM Pin number when I try to sign on to eBay. My anti-virus program is flagging the virus but can't remove it. With the additional Coke Zero problem, I just can't risk working on it myself-I'm just not computer savvy. And, our financial situation (much like many others) means that taking it to a shop is out of the question. So....I turned it off and placed it gently on a shelf in the bookcase. Goodbye, dear friend.

Thankfully, I do have the option of the overworked family desktop. It is constantly occupied by someone, though, so my Internet time will be very limited. Can you say Buh-bye Twitter friends??

I feel so selfish! There are people around me that are jobless, with no prospects, wondering what in the heck they are going to do, and I'm griping and complaining about my laptop. Ya know, as long as it works out that my kids have a decent Christmas, I oughta be thrilled. So many people will do without this year.

And, like I said....I can use the family desktop. I may have to put up a sign-in sheet and limit each user to 30 minutes like they do at the library, though.

And here's my question of the day....

Why is the over-worked desktop virus-free?!?!?! I mean, I update and usually run my anti-virus and spyware programs daily. I just don't get it.

I don't know where I'll be, when I'll be, or how often I'll be, but I do know that I'll be around. I just gotta!
