I have a seven year old desk top that I have loved…really loved. Then sadly it started acting up. It would freeze ALL THE TIME. I put up with it..restarted the computer and went on with my work. Sadly, it started happening more often and more often. Then about a week ago I said something to Hubby and Kalissa about getting a new one. Both of them said-oh please get a new one. We don’t want to deal with you if it crashes.
Well I bought one…but I don’t think they want to put up with me now that I have a new one either!!!!!!!!!!! I should be thankful and feel blessed but those are two emotions that I am not feeling at all.
I am the first one to tell you I hate technology…the hate learning anything new. I can’t figure out why beloved simple programs have to go away.
Typically when I used to write blog posts my pictures came into the computer I went through picture manager and did a few simple edits which included resizing them and things went slick. The photos loaded and I was on my way. Things were quick and easy…it’s not that way. But wait, I can go to the app store and get some great app. I don’t want that…I just want what I had. UGH.
It took us a LONG time to find our passwords for Microsoft…I still don’t have my email working right and at this point I am hoping a miracle worker comes along because I feel like that’s the only way it’s going to get fixed. I can work around that if need be…but still it’s all frustrating.
I am so frustrated that the computer is so “connected to media”. There are so many apps that already came on the desktop computer that I have no interest at all in….I don’t Candy Crush on a desk top…I don’t want to connect to all my “friends” on my desktop. I want to work on my desktop. I don’t need a single thing on it that is distracting.
I am a Google Chrome girl and for some reason every time I open Google Chrome, a Yahoo search engine comes up….I hate Yahoo. I want what I had and I want it work right….
Oh computer woes….I’ll likely be complaining about this for a long time. Yet I feel so petty even caring about it.
We’ve had just a month filled with yucky news…relatives with reoccurring cancer…a family friend who found a breast lump…my childcare kids have been terribly sick…our son is getting divorced….Kalissa has been sick and even in the ER but worse we have friends who lost the husband and dad to their family. He was just 36. They have three little ones. It’s so sad….Everyone in our little community loves this family.
When all these family and friend sorrows happen it would be just nice to be able to plop down on the computer and have everything work…It would be nice to just spend the evening sewing some mindless project but none of that is happening. I’ve spent the last three nights fighting the computer…and fighting my own cold.
Kelli said she’s going to pop over and see if she can this afternoon….so keep your fingers crossed. At this point I’d at least feel a little happier if I could just the time on the computer be correct…and yes, I’ve changed it several times and it resets!! Oh UGH. I’m off to go get some kid time. That always makes my mood a little better.
