Thanks to all of you for your good wishes! I did finally get my computer running amid terrified visions of malicious code having eaten my poor computer alive! It took assorted reboots, three runs of my anti-virus as well as running every single anti-spyware and adware program I've got at least once. (What? Me paranoid?)
After no sleep Thursday night and working Friday, I came home and took what I hope was a well-deserved nap and started a few computer housekeeping chores. Emily, my neighbor and daughter of an old friend, came over and hung out with me for a while and was really appalled at the noise my upstairs neighbor's loudness. She jumped up and down a few times to let her know how annoying she was after I told her they had been fighting and banging around for hours. It didn't help. After Em went home so I could get more sleep, the moron decided to run her vacuum cleaner at 1 a.m.! I think I'm going to die of sleep deprivation! And the doctors think anti-depressants are the answer. Sigh. I don't need this but obviously my landlord would rather take her money than lose a good tenant. I'm calling Sgt. Fox on Monday and ask some questions. I don't want to move right now. I can't afford it and haven't the energy to handle the hassle. I've decided that I'm going to look around and see what's available and if things I'm hoping for work out, I may just move after I take a much-needed week on the beach.
I have to get out of here and go get some food but hopefully, I'll be back with more pleasant things to talk about later. We've just started our silly season here and I'll be telling y'all all about it.
