Experiencing Technical Difficulties, Please Stand By!

On the personal front: Thankfully the flare-up which started this past Tuesday began slowly easing up yesterday. This one has been such a doozey, even surprising me! Hubby's usual comedic "bedside manner" was no where to be found (also thankfully!) and he was very kind & caring throughout, taking care of me. (That's the hard part - being taken care of).

On the technology front: Our computer went somewhat peacefully last night. I felt the end was near given the sudden glitches I was running in to and quickly copied what ever files I hadn't backed up yet before conceding defeat and pulling the plug. 8 or 9 years is a long life for a computer and we got more than our monies worth from it.

Oddly enough, while I was frustrated last night, I'm not freaking out about this. Am I thrilled to have to spend $500 the same week the pickup is going into the shop? Not so much. Perhaps had this happened before 5 consecutive days of excruciating pain I would be. It's all about perspective.
