I e-mailed Trina to pass this on, but my laptop is behaving for the moment.
My main computer had a hard drive failure yesterday. I was able to get on it just enough to save the rest of our photos and a couple documents. I'm going to get another flash drive and try to save the last of the files. My music will have to bite the dust.
Why this means I can't be around much despite being on now is this: I have this OLD laptop. It runs on Ubuntu only, but it does allow us to connect to the internet. However, it's a temperamental bitty and it doesn't like pg.org much. I can come here and read, but to log on, I have to go through the main page, retype my password on the edit page, perform a rain dance and offer my first born to the service of God. It's a 10ish minute ritual, but it's totally this computer and not my account.
Yesterday we had the Cruiser break too (wouldn't start). This is all added to the tv that turns itself on and off at will. 3 big ticket items. 1 itty bitty budget.
The car will get fixed as a first priority. We almost have all the money we need for the tv. We have a start to a new computer fund. But given that we have something to access the internet with and another computer that has Word that hubby can type sermons with, we decided to save for what we want (that will last us years) and not bust our credit doing it.
So I'll be watching.... and whenever I have a spare 10 minutes to perform a rain dance, I just might get back here to post even.
Miss you all already!
(This also means I have no way of putting my pictures on the computer right now so I'm going to have to stockpile any work I do.)
