Hi, my name is Meredith and I have an addiction. That is an addiction to my computer and my blog. Is there a 12 step program for this? I thought I had it all under control until last Friday. When the simple act of turning on my computer caused me great alarm. You see the computer would not turn on correctly. It made noise, a noise I didn't like so I manually turned it off. I tried again, I unplugged things, and replugged things. I had cables and cords everywhere. Still no sign of life. I thought it was the monitor, I messed around with it and ordered my husband out the door to buy another one. I hooked the new one up, pressed the on switch and the same thing happened, nothing. I tried to use my iPad, but it kept going on and off with the WiFi at our house. My son was having a conniption fit because he wasn't able to stay online and play games with his friends. All this craziness happening at once.
Mr. 19 year old was in a meet in Ohio which I could not follow because I could never get the results. I was Frustrated with a capital F. So yesterday my lovely computer fixer guy Andy came to my house and got us all working again. The router was hit by something, which caused the game card to fry in the computer, so it went into emergency something or other and blah, blah blah. All I know is that I feel very lost when I am not connected. I really didn't know how very connected I needed to be. It seems fine when I am on vacation to not venture near the computer, but when I am home, well Holy Cow I am beside myself if I can't log on.
So now I have to catch up on emails, work and blogs. Boy have I missed all of you. Hope you are all okay, I will be popping in as soon as I can.
At least I got a new fancy monitor out of the whole mess. So now on top of my sheep/yarn/knitting/ crochet/Downton Abbey addictions, I have to add another. I think I need help.
