Okay, I was Wrong...

Seems that I'm not the only one in the family with laptop issues. My son got a verbal beating this morning when I discovered he'd plugged the internet into the laptop, and when I described what was happening in the morning, and why I was so furious, he mentioned he was having the same problems and told me how to fix it!

Apparently my daughter's machine is somewhat temporamental. It likes to lock up every once in a while, to 'catch up' with the info load.

'Just leave it alone for 5 minutes, Mom...it will load the page.'

So I poured myself a cup of coffee and tried to calm down. And voila! I'm having no problems, other than typos or accidentally hitting the space bar too many times (I have a nasty habit of resting my wrists on it!) or even hitting the power button. My sleeves are pushed to my elbow, and only once has this thing locked up on me.

Now...if only I could see the screen without having to take off my glasses or have the overhead light on...

In addition to the e-books I'll be buying later today, I'm also hopping over to Amazon and purchasing the Bound Brits anthology, with stories written by Barbara Huffert and Dakota Rebel, and Marriage Plot, by Kelly Kirch. If you find yourself on Amazon and in the mood to buy these talented ladies' stories, why not swing by and grab a copy of mine as well? Just a thought, since you're already there!

Have a good day:)

Nice to know it isn't just you, huh? :) Thanks for the comment you left me. I'm sorry to hear you're having similar problems with your friend. 22 years is a lot of invested friendship time and you must be struggling. {{hugs}}

Thanks...it's been a rough two days since I got that email. Steaming hot anger isn't fun.

This made me realize how much I loooooove my kids. They've bailed my butt out so much with the computer stuff. So YAY, I raised em right. They always bail their poor dumb mother out. LOL

Hope you work out things with your friend, Molly.

Mine rolled his eyes afterwards, when I asked him about his ringtone. He forgets his mom is techno-challenged:)

Thanks Regina:)

I'm so proud of myself. I learned how to have a song I like as my ringtone all by myself! Don't get too excited Molly. It's the only techno thing I've figured out so far.

Good choices in reading material:)
Glad your computer is behaving itself:)

My kids help me a lot with my tech stuff, too, in particular DS#1. I'd be lost without them.

Aren't kids great?

I'm slowly working my way down that list to yours, Ashley and Sandra!
