Fixed? We'll See.

After 3 days of (im)patiently waiting for my 'puter to be fixed, we found out what the problem was. Evidently the HD has some bad sectors on it. So they are going to image the drive then junk it, and sell us a new one. Here's my translation (I am geek but not THAT geek): my hard drive has some rotten pieces, so they're going to copy what they can off of it, trash it and replace it with a new one. It's a relief, because this was the cheapest of possibilities. The others were that the memory or Windows was bad (my brother, the "real" geek, affectionately calls it "Windblows).

All I can say is I will be doing the happy dance only when I have it back in my hot little hands. Then the real fun will begin~ seeing what I have to reload/replace. YAY!

While I was suffering from separation anxiety, I created with paper! My pictures are horrible~ my camera has developed this annoying *even longer* shutter lag. Picture the Yahoo emoticon ripping its hair out and dropping it. It's amazing I haven't developed an ulcer, LOL!

And since I'm in the habit of giving credit, the paper and elements are by Close to My Heart, the mini (6x9) clipboard by Oriental Trading, pail from Michaels.

Glad to hear the computer problem's not as bad as it could have been. Love those paper projects of yours! Have a great weekend!
