Just wanted to let you all know that we are all fine here, but our computer has now been completely un-usable for over a week now. Momma told the technical men on the phone three weeks ago that she had two hardware problems, and she spent 10 days wrestling with them until they agreed that there was one hardware problem, and then when she tried to re-install the computer's operating system, she couldn't, because the other hardware problem is that the D-drive is not working correctly. When she pointed out that she had told them that the D-drive was the other hardware problem Two Weeks Ago, the technical men said,
"oh, I guess so."
Momma has been saying a lot more bad words about technical men who don't listen to women and about crappy computers and about other stuff. She has been good about using me as a model, though. I tell her:
2) eat some kibbles: you'll feel better (although she has been substituting M&M's and Girl Scout cookies for kibbles)
3) take another nap
4) look out the window for a while
5) eat a few more kibbles
Sometimes, things are just hard. And you have to find ways to get through it. Right?
So I asked her to please put this update up when she goes to the office to use the computer to work on her dissertation, because my buddies have been worried about me. She is very stressed out about getting her own work done, but she agreed to do this for me. Just letting you know that we are okay, and I look forward to catching up with all of you this coming week when we have a computer again!
