The Attempted Homicide of My Computer

My computer owes its continued living to my husband.  For the past two weeks, my lovely computer has decided to take a crap on me.  It’s not even that old!  I’ve only had it for a few years!  Arg!

I kept getting errors about a driver, but it never told me which driver was jacked up.  Luckily, I was able to, during a brief working period, get all my files backed up.  My husband stopped me from taking my computer out into the back yard and shooting it with a shot gun.  He spent two days working on my computer, and for a little while, it looked like things were going to be alright.  But then, right when I settled down to do a bit of editing…the bloody thing craps out again!!!!

How hard it is for something to stay fixed once it’s fixed?  Honestly.  My wonderful husband, once again, comes to my rescue and installs a new operating system on my computer.  Things are better, but I have like 50 bazillion updates I have to run to get everything up to date.  I spent an entire day during my vacation doing nothing but updates.  The number of updates is getting smaller, but I can’t ignore a single one or else my computer will crap out.  Sigh.

At this point I’m almost tempted to get a typewriter or write my novels by hand, but I’m too lazy for that.  Plus it would make publishing a little tricky since I’m an indie writer and have to submit everything through createspace….  So send me light, love, prayers, and all that good mojo.  Here’s hoping my computer keeps on kicking.

‘Till next time folks.

 

 

 

 

 

Cycles in Reading

I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I go through cycles when it comes to books.  Sometimes I get on a YA bender, or sometimes I find I can’t get enough of a particular time period with Historical Fictions.  Right now, I’m on a Native America spell.  I think I can accredit this to the fact that I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed  III, which has a half-Mohawk protagonist and is set during the American Revolution.  A lot of people don’t like this game, but I’m loving it.

What about you guys?  Do you find that you go through spells where you read a lot of a genre or subject matter?  I’m curious.

‘Til next time folks!

Family Vacation….

Right now, I’m near the tail end of a family vacation at the beach.  My husband’s parents have a place in New Jersey and they invited us a long to stay with them for the week that they are there.  It’s been kinda fun, but all the family fun time is really starting to get to me.  Now I don’t know about you guys, but every now and again I need a little alone time.

But I have been having fun.  I’m at the beach.  I’ve had my fresh seafood, and even had some funnel cake from the boardwalk.  I’ll post up pictures when I get back.  With all that being said, I am ready to go home.  Week long vacations are extremely exhausting. But I have enjoyed my time here at the beach.
