I've never claimed to be a computer "geek" but this was really a mess. When the computer guys came I even had to show them how I opened the cd/dvd compartment on the pc. One of them had asked for a paperclip to try to open it. Well, why go through that, I just pressed the button and socked the the top of the tower and VOILA! The look on both their faces was priceless. Still makes me chuckle just thinking about it. Anyways, the laptop is working beautifully and I'm putting the pc out to pasture. Actually, I'm going to take it to a store that re-cycles computers. One of the guys has taken the hard drive from the pc to try to retrieve my pictures, etc. form it. Ooooh! He just called and said he was able to get them. Yah! Pictures from vacations, Oreo, dances, etc. I'm so happy. I'll get those back on Sunday/
Now, I'm not quite sure what happened to my phone but I looked at my bedroom clock 1 morning and then picked up my phone and it was 2 hours behind. That alone had me vexed but I decided to correct the time and it was on mountain time. That's when I saw the date, which was some or other month and day but the year was 1980. 1980, what the hell? Well, I fixed that and now I'm back together. What a freaky couple of weeks. Explains why I couldn't get some apps to open on the thing since in 1980 the cell phone was the size of a brick. That's why I hadn't blogged. I couldn't open it up.
Now I can finish my taxes, programs for clients and get back to my weekly blogging. Yipppeeee! Let's just hope & pray that there are no glitches while I'm getting my knee replaced.
5 weeks and counting 'til I become semi-bionic. I'm truly getting excited. I've begun the paperwork for my leave of absence at work, scheduled my class re; the operation and still waiting to get the notification re; pre-surgery things to do. Something to do with the anesthesia and something else, called my dentist 'cuz I have a teeth cleaning appointment scheduled in April and they can't do it the same way because of the surgery, have about 1 more minute left to choreograph for my bellydance piece being performed in May. Whew.
Speaking of my dance piece, I had all 5 ladies at the same time this week and they're all up to speed and they looked fantastic. I can't wait to finish it, get the costumes and see it. I'm sure I'll be crying at the recital. All of the gals really seem excited about the piece too. That makes me very,very happy.
Sometimes facebook makes me nuts. At least when folks just keep posting stupid stuff. You know what I mean, all of the nonsense. However, it does allow you to suddenly be in contact with people you haven't seen or thought of in decades. Well, that's what happened to me. A gal I knew back in my 1st round of college found me via a neighbor of hers who was also a college friend of mine. Small bloody world again. So cool when this happens. She was also in the PE dept. and emphasized in dance. We'd had 1 project together. Unbelievable. This was a treat.
The workout/wellness accountability challenge has kinda fallen off. Trying to keep track of points earned, points lost, turning in of sheets, etc. just got to everyone and we've let it go. It was a good idea but too frustrating and made everyone a little stressed. Yeah, I need more stress right now. Oh well, maybe next year and not so involved.
At least next year I should be moving at full strength again. MAN, I can't wait. I know it'll be awhile to regain my stamina as well as my strength but it'll sure feel great to be taking breaks due to lack of endurance rather than my knee blowing up like a balloon and snappin' & cracklin' like a bowl of Rice Crispies. I want to take ballet, jazz, west-African and Afro-Brazilian as well as bellydance. Lookout Tucson, I'm comin'. Let's face it, I want to dance!
2 of my co-workers and friends (1 being my best friend out here) have left me. So, with all of the drama with the electronics and them leaving work and Tucson, I've been a bit depressed. The day D. left I cried 5 times. I'm happy for them but as for me, it sucks. They're both off to try new things and I do applaud them for their courage. But...for me, it sucks. I miss them both and look forward to seeing them again. I wish you both all of the best in your new lives.
So, as you can read, the last few weeks have been a nightmare for me. But all is back on track, now. I'll finish my taxes this weekend, send 'em off and anxiously await their return.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
Peace out & be healthy.
