I suppose that because my girls have a virus, my computer was jealous. Because today it started acting very strangely. Every time I would try to access Pioneer Woman's website (no, I am not linking to her website) my computer would freeze. Odd, I know. She said she was having server issues, I assumed that it was high volume of traffic on her site. She was giving away a kitchen-aid mixer people!
My anti-virus scanner started telling me it was deleting viruses and I needed to restart my computer. Not a biggie, right. I did it, then again and again. I am pretty sure I restarted it five times or more, and nothing. NOTHING, it still showed the same issues, the same risks. I finally got on chat with the Norton folks because I started getting pop up after pop up saying that my email was not sent. Only they were emails to strange people, and with weird subjects like- "Free Tab.le.ts." and "Tab.le.ts for Men." It made me panic.
I broke down and started crying, because what am I supposed to do? My computer geek is on the other side of the world, and not available to fix my problems. I went through my list of people to call, first off my mom. Talking to her, telling her my problem was more just to calm myself down so that I could call a friend without losing it completely on the phone.
Then I called JG, but he didn't answer the only number I could find for him. I called AW. She walked me through a system restore, but that didn't solve it. I asked her if she saw JG if she could ask him to call me. (I might have said "Tell him to call me." Which is rude, but I was panicking folks, ok?) I sobbed a little more, then posted on Facebook, because I do that way too much, then turned off my computer for an hour.
Maybe it would magically fix itself, right? One can always hope. It didn't. I turned it back on, to check my life. I am tied to it. This is my link to the outside world whilst my girls have been sick. But I digress. JG called and said he can take my box home and see if he can fix it. This won't really cut me off from the world, since I do have another working box (its just older and slower) in the office. Yes, I have a back-up computer, don't you? So now I am going to disconnect this puppy and cross my fingers that the other box sets up easily.
And did you know, that the wind is whipping my house like a wicked child? It is. We have some nasty wind right now. Whoosh! I hope my trees withstand the wind, because I took a few of them off of the stakes.
