diet until December 7th, after which I will have my colonscopy and, hopefully,
the findings from that will be such that I can, once again, resume a normal diet.
It wasn't much fun spending eight hours cooking on Thanksgiving day and not
being able to eat all the goodies I prepared. The boys, however, loved everything
and have made certain the leftovers didn't linger long enough to tempt me. Today,
I made turkey soup with the last of the bird and they finished everything else
that remained. I just watched sadly and ate my chicken broth and noodles.
Somehow, I seem to still have a dark cloud hovering over my head. In the last few days,
I've been having an electronic meltdown. My very expensive laptop, has been going
haywire, and is giving me all sorts of error messages which should not be happening. I
really can't spare money to take it in to the doctor right now.
However, the worst of all possibilities happened! My desktop crashed completely.
Not even the recovery disc was able to resurrect it and all my files, photo and otherwise,
are contained therein. Fortunately, I did subscribe to Carbonite backup a few months
ago so I don't think all my information is lost forever - but, since my laptop says it is
full ( it should have plenty of room ), I can't put the files there. It will all have to wait until
I can afford a new desk top and that may be months from now.
Another wierd thing has been happening with my fancy Panasonic four extension
phone system which is only about six months old. Suddenly, I can't access the
voice mail on any of the phones so my messages can't be retrieved, nor can I use
the phone book feature. The phones are all fully charged. It is so frustrating to be
at the mercy of these electronic devices on which we become so dependent.
For a little while, I am sad to say, I may be missing photos with my posts. I have so
many pictures stored on my desktop, for months of blogs to come. I guess one should
not come to depend on these computers so much but they become so totally essential
in our lives. I have some essentials tasks coming up in the near future and all the work
pertinent to them is on that darn desk top. Yikes!!
