Computers ...

My laptop has been on the fritz for a while so I made sure (or so I thought) to copy my "Nursing School" folder that has EVERYTHING from 1st quarter until now that I have worked on, onto my external hard drive. When I went to pull up my research paper that I have worked on for 4 quarters to edit for the (hopefully) last time it wasn't there!!!! My laptop is so messed up now that I can't get anything off of it, can't email it, can't print it and can only view it in windows "compatibility mode". I nearly burst into tears; I was sickened by the thought that at 1130 at night I would have to re-type all 8 pages ... I am barely better than a hunt-and-peck typist, it would take me all night to retype all 2,036 words! Fortunately my husband eventually was able to get a copy of the file off of the laptop so I could edit it on our desktop and print it for class tomorrow. I still have so much more on there that I want to get off, what a mess.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH ... yeah that’s about all I have the energy for this quarter. I am literally surviving week by week! I am barely able to keep up and all other activities have fallen to the wayside!

I feel like the little engine that could " I think I can, I think I can, I think I can"!
