What a busy day! I am so glad that tomorrow is Sunday and hopefully a day of rest for me. I cannot figure how I manage to be busy all the time, yet no visible changes can be seen. Nor have I stepped a foot out of the house today. Not even to walk Roxy. Jerrell usually over walks her on the weekends. I did cook some things for lunch tomorrow, but til I finished I was too tired to cook again so we just ate what we spose to have tomorrow.
I had an important email to write, which needed to be well thought out and sensitive in nature, so since that is not my area of expertise, I had to really struggle. I was bout half through and that dad jim telephone rang and nobody here to answer it, so I went to get it, thinking...this shore better be important...and it was. It was my son and he is very important. By the time I finished talking with him, my mind was on a whole different matter of course than the email I had to go back and finish up.
Proceed I did do and carefully I might add. This was not a normal email, but a necessary one under the cirucumstance. I did finish the email and felt like I was honest and caring in my delivery of the intent of the email.
I thought I had my mind made up on my computer until I got a phone call from my brother today. His wife was on her girl's day out and he was off the golf course since he is a senior citizen and can only play during the week on the course and we just had plenty of time to talk and neither of us are shy with our tongues. I hope he enjoyed shooting the bull as much as I did.
He knows the programming, programs, software part of a computer, BUT don't know pee doodley about the guts of one. He was awful amazed that I knew quite a bit about the guts. Goes to show you that I listened to his late wife when she would be telling us things, whereas he musta didn't.
To make a long story short, if I go on now and get the h/d, they can transfer all my valuables off thisen onto the new one. Vs- if I wait til it crashes, then "I" will have to download some programs that I have that of course do not come with XP Pro. Knowing me and always looking for the easiest way out of everything and after talking to my brother, I think I will just take it in the first of the week, that is if it is still running by then. I should be down for a couple days as they got a staff that gets them in and out in a speedy and professional manner.
Unless of course I change my mind before then.
This just happened 5 minutes ago, the phone rang again and it was my poor mother in law. First thing she ask is, what day is today? Not the first time this has happened. Welp, I told her it was Saturday. She thought it was Sunday and she had missed church. She had also bought something today, which has been a no-no for her all the 39 years I have been married to her son. She will NOT buy on Sunday. And that is why I have to cook on Mother's Day!! I assured her that it was Saturday-- she even caught me on a good day, so she is also lucky! I reminded her about her getting Sunday in the wrong place a while back and she bought that day and I told her she would just hafta pray a little harder, I thought the Lord surely would understand. To soften the blow, I told her that happens to me too, must be our age. I am 62 and she is 90. :) Now I am gonna jump back up to where I was.....
I have jumped and I am finishing up. Thanks for bearing with me... Until.....
