This is my task list for yesterday. As I’m sure you know, I like to use an online service for managing my tasks, so why, you ask, was I rockin’ the old-fashioned legal pad yesterday? It’s the same reason I am posting two days of Yellow Week at a time – my hard drive is toast.
Now, I’m a computer geek, but there are large gaps in my geekiness that, thankfully can easily be filled by my geek husband. He came home from work last night and got my hard drive up again. If you can call “hanging by a thread to the point where you really shouldn’t save anything else on it,” “up.”
So, my computer is on life support, and I am going to have to pull the plug, given its myriad other issues that until now I’ve just begrudgingly put up with. I’m using it as little as possible, doing only the absolutely most important tasks – you know, printing postage, processing orders…
Thankfully I’ve come into a hand-me-down laptop today which is also busted, but it’s broken in a way that’s much easier to fix than my current computer. Once the parts arrive from eBay, I’ll be back in business. Until then, I’ll sit in my cozy corner on the couch, twitching and chewing my fingernails.
I really, really hope they ship those parts really, really FAST.
