A journey into the mind of a normal gal… Well..

Internet Issues Continue February 15, 2009

Well, first off, I hope all of you had a great, wonderful, fantastic Saint Valentine’s Day!

Next, as you can or cannot see – I got the internet working on my laptop.  This is definitely a temporary fix because my wireless connection is not always the best.  The adapter I have is picky.  Grr…   You would think it would work well because it too, is Linksys!!!   Alas, it does not want to work all the time.  So, I am taking advantage whilst I can!

I succumbed to the Techie’s advice and purchased the Vista upgrade for my computer.  I was looking forward to a smooth installation, so in preparation – I moved some stuff from my desktop to my Thumb Drive and my external Hard Drive.  It cleared up some space on my regular hard drive, which was nice!  Every GB of free space I can create, the better!

After some cleaning, defragging, clearing, I thought I was ready to install the Vista upgrade.  I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.  Putting in the DVD or whatever, I got NOTHING in return!!  No response to the disk actually being in the drive!  How..  no, Why does that happen?  It has happened with one or two other of my dvds, too..   I don’t understand the problem, since I actually have a DVD drive!  ugh….

Anyway, I am still working on it.  I swear!

So, in the meantime, I am trying to figure out how to get my stinking computer back up and running CORRECTLY.  (I can’t get over the fact that it *does* connect to the internet, but doesn’t interpret http addresses – only IP.)

Have a great Race Day for you NASCAR fans!  And a happy President’s Day – especially if you don’t have to work!

Friday the Thirteenth and Valetine’s Day February 13, 2009

It’s casual day at work, which is nice.

People are dressed in red for Singles Awareness Day Valetine’s day, or in race-car driver wear for the Daytona 500 which is on Sunday.  We have to work on Monday, which I’m not thrilled about, but hey, it’s a job, right?

Anyway, the fiance is working today at noon.  I haven’t heard anything from him today, which bothers me, but I think he’s upset with me.  I’m not completely sure.  I hate when he’s mad at me.  I love him just so very much!  And with Valentine’s Day being tomorrow, the timing is horrible!  He has to work for most of the day tomorrow, anyway, but still..  ::Sigh::  Maybe it’s the curse of Friday the 13th!  I don’t normally believe in that kind of stuff, but it may be true today.  This is the first of THREE Friday the 13ths this year – March and November are the other two.  Hopefully March’s will go better! 

The home computer is still down, but I have a few things to try when I get home tonight!  Wish me luck!  If it does not work, I will probably not be able to post again until Monday, which kind of sucks because I have been in the groove and I have a lot more stuff that I want to do to the blog!  I have pages I want to add, pictures, links… All kinds of stuff for your enjoyment!  Well, the few of you who actually stop in to read this!  I am using a lot of exclamation points.  I must stop that.

So, no big plans for the weekend.  Computer work, maybe a walk here and there, laundry…  I may cook a few things as well.  Like I may have mentioned, some of the girls at work are getting together and starting the South Beach Diet next week, so I may prepare my casserole this weekend and bring it in on Thursday or Friday.

I guess that’s the dish for now…  I hope to be back in good spirits soon!  Getting the computer up and the man calm will help greatly!
