Hello dear readers!
Over the last week and a half, I’ve had the most incredibly debilitating computer issues. Last Friday I stayed up literally all night, trying to make my tried and true old Macintosh continue being The Little Engine That Could. I worked for days to resurrect it!
But alas, my old computer died. Kaput. And with it, most of my data. :( I know, my husband would say as you do: why didn’t you back it up? Time, time, time…. Always there is something else more important!
So now, I have a new computer. But I made the mistake of transferring a bit of data from the old computer, and now the new computer is corrupted. And so the vicious cycle continues! Ack! I sat down to finally start writing for you all again, and the wonderful, new computer wouldn’t work.
I’m writing a few words on my old old laptop, that won’t work without being plugged in ever second, and even then it’s only sluggish.
Such is my world as we enter Spring. Two weeks ago, my glasses broke while I was cleaning them – just right there in my hand. The next week my phone dropped while I was rushing to work, and shattered the face. And last week my computer died, and with it my data.
Simple things in the scheme of things, but already both time and money were tight. If you’d like to help this dear blogger, there is a donation button in the right sidebar, toward the bottom. It will help a great deal.
Ultimately, I will survive. Today before work I shall fly to the computer store, fingers crossed, and hope it’s a quick fix so I can be back up and running. And writing. I do love to write!!
Until then, please continue sharing what the most difficult thing is for you as you live your sustainable life. There are some great comments started here, and very interesting ones on Facebook. I have plans to tackle the biggest ones together, one by one. So please add yours!
Yours, temporarily debilitated by technology ~
