I'm finally able to write from my own computer again! It came home a couple days ago. Christopher was able to get me (my computer) communicating with the wireless system again this evening. It was in his best interest so he'd have full use of his own computer again. He hasn't had time to locate the original hard drive. It is here someplace but who knows where?
He tells me my computer has a different "feel" to it. It is more masculine rather than feminine. Perhaps because it is faster and stronger. It certainly no longer has the inside of an e-machine. It is missing all my old headings, bookmarks, etc. I expect they are in the belly of that missing hard drive. I'm told it is there, among the wires and such... waiting to be found again. Judging from how busy the only computer geek in the family is, it may take awhile. I'm just glad to be back online.
We had unexpected company due to very bad weather. My husband's brother was suppose to drive to our place from Indianapolis and they would continue on to their hometown (close to Chicago) to take care of family business. Instead, he arrived far later than we had anticipated and suggested they not attempt driving any further tonight. Christopher also had a very difficult time driving home but he was able to stop by the grocery store for me and purchase salads and sandwiches for dinner (I had not intended to cook this evening so nothing was defrosted).
The roads are suppose to be much better tomorrow. The brothers will get on the Interstate early in the morning. I'm so ready for Spring this year. It has been a horrible winter, especially travel conditions (not to mention illness!). My mind was already planning what flowers to plant in containers and near the house this Spring as I watched more snow falling all afternoon. Tomorrow will be beautiful as sunshine makes the new fallen snow sparkle in the trees. However, I've had enough sparkle. I need warm sun and clear roads.
I know there is more to chat about but my eyes are drooping and my brain is shutting down for the day. Time to turn off my "old friend", even if she now has a he mentality. That will need pondering for awhile. ??? It's too late to think. Must get to bed. See you later.
