I made it! Whew!
Before you start wondering why it took me this long to post my weekly blog, there’s a whole story behind this. The short version is that I just got my desktop back home and plugged in less than an hour ago.
Now for the long version!
On Friday, I did my normal stuff. Got kids moving towards school, made my coffee, started the laundry. You know, normal stuff. Then I sauntered into my office and went to read some emails before I started my hours for Solstice.
Only my computer didn’t wake up right away.
And, when it did, it would only work in safe mode. The dreaded Blue Screen of Death, complete with an error message about a page file in a nonpage area, had laid waste to my thoughts of being productive.
Spent 3 to 4 hours trying to fix it on my own to no avail. Finally, I called our local computer guru and begged their assistance.
And then I waited. Not very patiently. All weekend. Praying that nothing was lost forever. No work related things, no works in progress, no photos of cats or kids.
Ladies and gentlemen, I was a complete and utter nervous wreck all weekend long.
To put a happy ending on this horror story (trust me, I was almost in tears out of fright!), everything was saved. The techs were able to do wonderful work and my computer is back home and operational. No Blue Screen of Death!
Now to get it back to where it looks ‘normal’ so I can find those books I was trying to finish writing.
