Naturally being the wonderful MotherBoard that I am, I rushed her right to the hospital.
She was in intensive care for what seemed like forever. I didn’t know what to do. Fortunately I had learned a previous lesson about making backup files; but even though I learned how, I was remiss in backing up ALL my files. Sad to say, those are now gone forever. The files lost were “unimportant” which is probably why I decided they could wait to be backed up; but now they are going to be a pain in the behind to re-do them. Another life lesson learned.
Since my computer has been ill, I’ve had to relive the days when the US Mail was my friend.
I don’t really care for the US Mail much anymore. I have grown accustomed to the instant gratification of electronic bill pay and email.
Of course, while keeping a password keeper is very handy since each and every thing I do involves a password that has specific criteria different from all other passwords; it is best to keep it on more than one computer or at least make a hard copy of the list. I didn’t do that. Another valuable life lesson.
I didn’t realize I was such a huge electronic addict. I’m depressed to know that I am. I’m further depressed to know that I actually had to stop and think how I did things in the past.
Life is slowly getting back to normal now. My computer is feeling much better. She connects me to the ever-changing world once again.
I am slowly beginning to re-build my computer life. I am finding all my favorite places a little at a time, I am making new book marks. I have decided to enjoy the journey again and leave bread crumbs along the way so I can easily find my way back.
