It Seems that I'm Back . . . Until the Next Disaster(s)
It's always an adventure in Kay's world. In the midst of the nasty infection in my computer, there was more "fun". For some weird reason, the eye that was just operated on started hurting and I couldn't see out of it. I called Dr. Jamie's service and left a message and called Michelle and asked her to come look at it. I saw her expression and I knew that it wasn't good. Fortunately, Dr. Jamie called back quickly because I was in full tilt boogie panic mode. He told me to increase my eye drops, put hot compresses on my eye and see him at the office in the morning. The good news is that it worked and I could see again so I have some new knowledge. When I saw him, he said everything looked good. (HUGE sigh of relief.)
My computer is back to normal. Even my ex was perplexed by it and that is what really scared me because he really knows his stuff from the many years he spent in tech support for a major corporation. He was the guy they called at 4 am when the network went down. (I remember one night when they called and he managed to tell them how to fix it without having to go down there and the next morning I said something about it and he said, "What?" and I told him about what he did so I consider him my personal geek squad. LOL) I had written a note about my problem to tech support at my anti-virus AVAST and got a note back from them telling me what I needed to do and how to do it and it worked really well. I had used their free version for years and liked it and recently paid for and registered it recently. All I can say is that their help with it saved me a lot of angst. That said, I got the blue screen of death in the middle as I was typing this. It's been a problem and I think I may have found a solution. Cross whatever appendages y'all deem appropriate.
I've been slowly but surely catching up on visiting y'all and will try to stay up-to-date. Bryce and Gracie were just here to thank me for the chocolate bunnies I sent over and the bunny squeeze toys I sent for Ana. Gracie brought an Easter egg she made with my name on it. I almost cried. I really love those kids. They and their mom are true blessings in my life. And yeah, Gracie and I had a big old time when I picked her up from school the other day. We played Go Fish and munched cookies -- sheer heaven for both of us!!!
Tomorrow I'll be back with the Groaner of the Week and I'll, hopefully, get back to regular posting if the computer gods allow it!
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!
