Yup, it finally happened, my almost 7 year old Macbook died right after I did my last blogpost. At first, I thought maybe it was just the battery like last time, but NO! The screen was black and not a sound was heard! Poor thing!
In hindsight I guess it was pretty smart of me to have my son-in-law order me a refurbished MacAir a week before Christmas. Perhaps I had an inkling of things to come???? (Actually, I really liked his and figured it was time to upgrade anyway!! I mean mine only weighed about 20 lbs or so and really looked like an antique.)
During the almost 2 day "down time" I even had to resort to my iPad where, until then, I had only accomplished Angry Birds! Problem with that was that I couldn't e-mail and couldn't order any apps for some reason. At least, though, I could look at Flickr and Pinterest, although since we don't have a "cloud" compatible printer, I couldn't print. I'm telling you, it was NOT a fun weekend around here!! Thank heaven for telephones! I called all my friends instead of e-mailing them. lol
Thankfully, on Sunday afternoon, the genius' at the Apple store were able to transfer my data from the dead Mac to the new one, except for the email. It's still not working! I can't install Flash Player and I am still not connected to our lazar printer either. I could scream!! You know what a patient person I am!! lol
BUT.........HELP is on the way....I HOPE!! We have a computer dude who has been our life saver many times in the past who is scheduled to be here at 3pm this afternoon. Say a prayer, please??? This craziness is driving me batty!! I HATE it when stuff doesn't work: Tv's, cars, men, computers, etc. E-gads!!!
So, here's the deal..........if you e-mail me (not before 7pm please CST since he's often late) and have a reply blogger address, I will reply and you'll know that I'm back in business. If not, UGH!!! I'm doomed!! And....if you have a no-reply blogger and you'll know it if I'm back in business and you don't hear from me, then FIX it so we can chat in the future!! lol
So....until next time (unless another disaster occurs) I will finally reveal my sweet mother and daughter duo from Australia. You will love them!
