I’m back!

This morning I told Hubby that I would be just as happy if the internet would never have been invented.

For reasons I cannot fathom, my blog suddenly became unaccessible to me after I posted on Saturday.  Also on Saturday, my SIL, the other Sandi, and I went on a much more expensive than usual shopping trip … and both came home with Mac laptops.  So we are now attempting to navigate the Mac learning curve together.

And today, just to make things more interesting, Frontier, our new e-mail service, decided to shut down our e-mail service right in the middle of my “conversation” with two very smart people at wordpress who were trying to help me figure out why in the heck I couldn’t get into my blog.

But, as they say, “All’s well that ends well.”  I am finally back on my blog and am actually typing this on my new laptop.  Wahoooo!

It’s a good day after all — I have learned some new things and succeeded at a couple things I didn’t think I could conquer.  All because of the helpfulness and patience of some very knowledgeable miracle workers at wordpress and the geek squad.  God bless them all.

    CONGRATS on the Mac! And I’m glad you have access to your blog again. That would freak me out if it happened to me!

    The blog thing would bother me tremendously! I’m glad you’re back. And I’m glad you got yourself a Mac. It’s a fine machine. 🙂

    I’d been wondering what had happened to you. How exciting that you’ve gotten a new laptop, and a Mac, at that. You and SIL Sandi will be able to help each other over the humps. I’m really impressed that you’re typing your blog on your new computer already. Good job!

    Beth — thanks to you and your dad I had a balanced discussion on both sides of the Mac vs PC debate. It really did make me more prepared when it came tired to make the decision.

    BTW, “freaking out” is a pretty good description of how I felt when I suddenly couldn’t get into my blog (couldn’t even comment on other blogs!) — but the people at wordpress were their normal calm selves and just kept working with me until something worked. I truly believe the support I get from wordpress is the only reason a no-nothing like me can blog. And that’s not false humility — that’s fact! 🙂

    Hilary — I hope my Mac will serve me half as well as apparently yours has served you. 🙂

    Linda — The typing thing is something I’ll have to get used to. Right now, I’m back to a version of hunt and peck, but I’m sure I’ll adjust eventually. 😕

    Yay! You ended up getting the Mac! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 😀

  7. Sandra says:

    Cheryl — Thank you. I hope when I look back at it, I will say this choice was the right one!

    Julie — I sincerely hope so too!
