On Sunday afternoon, after grandson J went home and after a lot of fiddling around, I got it up and running again. Earlier I had been asked if I could babysit and I am so proud that I was able to say 'no'. I had plans and contrary to what some people think, I DO have a life. Sunday night I watched DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, one of my vices. I don't want it to end........that is really the only program I love.
This morning I decided to run Ad-Aware on the laptop and get it cleaned up. I have used that program previously and was reminded to use it again (as I was searching for a fix for the BSOD). I let it run while I ran errands: picked up a few small items at the thrift store and I finally remembered to stop at the jewelry store. While I was waiting (it sure was busy for a Monday morning) I found these original earrings by Viva Beads. http://www.vivabeads.com/viva/
They are handmade clay beads. The green is more of a lime green, which I wear often. They'll go with a lot of things...........and were 30% off. yay!!!! I had 3 reasons to stop at the jewelry store: the main reason being I needed to have a gold band (mom's wedding ring) cut off.....
It was about time, don't ya think? No, it did not hurt....the cutting off or the tight fit. I also needed batteries put into a watch and to have my wedding ring cleaned and checked. The store were I use to go and where it was purchased has closed, so I am happy to have found a reputable place in town.
When I got back home my computer was still scanning....and when it finished I rebooted like it said to do............but...............now I can not get online. I 'googled' the error message and tried the fixes but I am sick and tired of fooling around so, hopefully, tomorrow I can take it in and have someone look at it. Right now all I can do it play solitaire on it................that's kinda an expensive (and big) deck of cards I'd say. The only plus of it not working is that I am not online as much because my desktop is in the basement and my laptop sits on my kitchen table and I check it a million (almost) times a day. Alright, that decision has been made.....on to bigger and better things.....Geez....I forgot to stop at the library and grocery store....so off I go after lunch. I picked up my book for book club, picked up my sparkly, clean wedding ring, and bought some groceries. And that is where I am right now. I think I'll make hubby a semi-decent supper and fold laundry. sounds like fun, eh?
And that was MY wasted Monday..............hope yours was better!
