COMPUTERS HELP

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

January 3, 2011 Monday

Today, started getting up and making sure I had everything ready for my cleaning gal. She is nice and today I gave her a pack of 12 or more Silky nylons that I had bought through a club but now that I don't work they are sitting here. She is my height and size so they should fit her. I still have about 10 other packs so I have to find some people to give them too. She also received some of my chocolate, nut and peanut butter nut fudge. I am not going to eat it all because it does not do my health a bit of good. She is real slender too so it won't hurt her.

I showed her my new friends picture and then turned my computer off. I took the computer in the kitchen when I was making dinner, my shrimp and rice dish. I turned it on and went back and it was off. Would not go back on so I took it back to the family room. Later I tried taking out the battery and just using the plug in, nothing. Then I tried with both and nothing. I turned on the tv and no sound so I had to reboot it and then I think maybe a power surge since both where out. It was going on 10 PM and I decided to pack the computer up and take it to the repair shop tomorrow. Just by chance I unplugged the power plug and thought maybe with the battery so I tried and it came on. Then I plugged in the power pack and it still worked . Who knows what makes then act so nuts. It keeps telling me my battery is low but I have it plugged in. I'm going to stop and get a new battery because they most likely will have to order it. I will just take the battery to them tomorrow. Computers are now our life line sorry to say but they can be a headache when you want to get something done.

I am doing my work list ove with all the changes in my life on it. Have to keep everything straight. I didn't do a whole lot today but if I just keep up the eating and exercise I am doing good. I have lettuce, onions, garlic growing in my house and other herbs also. I am going to start some spinach since the lettuce did good.

Since it is getting late I am going to close and hope everything works tomorrow.

Have a great Tuesday and love life.

Love Spark people learn and spread the word.

Catch you tomorrow in between my schedule.

Joyce

    emoticon Computers sure can be a pain!! But once we start using them it seems we can't be without them. I hope it's nothing serious and just a worn out battery.

    I agree w/you and others, Joyce. When computers work they are lifelines and so valuable but when they don't work they can be so frustrating, you wanna throw them, FAR!! I hope you get the new battery and it works great ALL the time now.!!! brenda

    Computers can be downright silly sometimes. What a great thing that it finally turned on. I had to replace my battery after 3 years. Now it runs like a charm! Good luck at the repair shop tomorrow.

DAY TO RELAX & PLAN

Sunday, January 02, 2011

January 2, 2011 Sunday

A rainy day here but the snow is gone and I hope no more comes for awhile. I pretty much took it easy today and caught up with things I was suppose to do yesterday. My cleaning lady is coming Monday and I like to have everything out of the way and straighten. My sister had a cleaning lady and she cleaned the house before she came. I use to laugh at her. I do some cleaning but my gal does the fans, pictures and all the little extra that I don't even think off.

I sent Ivan a note and let him know I had a good time and hope he liked the treats. His son had called when we where at the restaurant so I hope nothing has happen.

I called my girlfriend and made a date to go to the Senior Center on Wednesday after I bowl to check out what they have to offer. Then I made a date to go out to lunch on Thursday on a regular basic, if we can. Just so I can get up and out which I need to do, we can have lunch at each others house and go out too so it is not always spending money. This way I have time to spend with a friend and gives me 3 days out.

Then on Friday I can rest or maybe go out with Ivan. I have to take it easy some on Friday because I will have to be up by 7 to pick up my GD by 8:30 AM for bowling. Then I will have her all day and night till about 1 AM. So I have to watch how much energy I use up so I don't get down. Mentally I want to go all the time and I try too so maybe if I keep doing it like this I will build a reserve and get strong.

I have made out a schedule to go by each day and now I have to change it a little to fit in my traveling. I will get it fine tuned and the exercise, going eating cleaning everything will be scheduled for a time. That is my job from now on. My pay will be healthy living and the fun with people I will have and that is better than any money.

Last night I didn't get to bed till 4 AM because Angel my big dog decided to take off and it was raining. I went out with the flashlight and tried to see her but it was so dark with all the clouds I couldn't see anything. I clapped because when they hear that they come. I called she didn't come. My brother-in-law took the deer out of my yard, but he put it back by the woods between my other brother-in-law and me and I think that is where she is going. She didn't smell good when she finally came in. I yelled at her and she knew she had done wrong. My little one Callie is having a bad dream because she is yipping while she is sleeping. Today I am sort of wiped out but I got in the shower and shampoo my hair and that helped. Sorry too say dogs are just as bad as kids.


All take care and have a good week. A new year to change our lives and make them better.

God bless all of you and be safe.

Love the Spark people and learn.

Catch you tomorrow and see what I can come up with.

Joyce

HAPPY DAYS

Saturday, January 01, 2011

January 01, 2011 Saturday

Today I arose early so my eyes would be wide open by the time I went on my date. Then to choose what to wear and I decided my cable pretty blue long sweater with light blue jeans. My hair I wanted to wash but he changed the day so I did the best I could and it looked pretty good. Put makeup on and tried to look nice. I was so nervous it was like high school.
I usually take a Dentyne ice gum before I gout because I would never want bad breathe and I forgot. So I remembered when I was in town so I stopped and bought some. That is why I leave early and then I realized I didn't have his number with me so I hoped he came on time. I thought I had remembered it but I was 1 number off, I will have it from now on.

I went a little early and told him I would stand outside my car and what it was like. At a couple minutes to 2 I got out of the car and he came in and pulled beside me. Beings he was right by me I gave him the sweet potatoes I promised him. We went in and found a booth, order tea and coffee and started to talk. A little later a man across from us got a piece of chocolate cream pie and it was so big. He told me to get something but I said no and when the waitress came he wanted me to get something so I got the banana pecan cake which was big enough for 3 people. I asked him if he was getting anything and he said he couldn't eat it because he was diabetic. Oh no, because I put a bag with the sweet potatoes with Macaroons dipped in chocolate, heavenly hash, chocolate fudge plain and with nuts, and peanut butter fudge plain and with nuts. He said he would just eat a little at a time and I told him to freeze it and that way he could eat it any time. We talk about everything and since he told me about his type 2 diabetes and let him know I had Leukemia but was in remission.
It was 4 o'clock before we knew it and we paid the bill packed my cake and went to the car. We talk for a few more minutes and he said he would call me, so here's hoping he will.

We had a really nice time so it would be nice to go out with him and maybe go on a hike. I didn't tell him about my leg because I want him to get to know me and not the shell in a matter of speaking. We all carry something at this stage of our life and it should be over looked but I am afraid because of my pass. Time will tell where we end up.

After I went to the bowling alley and bowled 2 games with my new ball and didn't do bad but I was trying to do set ups of different ways to get the pins. I think I am going to like it a lot when I get a good handle on it. When I paid for the games I was not ready for the price. I figured $4.oo but it was $6.75 because it was Saturday and after 5 when I finished. I will be bowling on week day afternoons from now on, but I don't practice too much because it cost and bowling league is enough money out.

Well, I have had a good start to the new year an I am going to keep it going. Tonight I still have to clean the kitchen and vacuum the dining room. Then tomorrow I will do a lot more cleaning and wash.

All have a glorious Sunday and praise God for all he does for us.

Love the Spark people.

Catch you all tomorrow with another adventure.

Love you all

Joyce

NEVER KNOW

Friday, December 31, 2010

December 31, 2010 Friday

Went and bowled today and we ended taking 3 so that was good. I bowed 1 game with my new ball and bowled higher that what I did for league. I should have used it but didn't want to take the chance. I was happy with it and I was so happy and light hearted while I was out. That is what I have to do get around people.

I even made it out my driveway and when I came back I drove a little more up it but had to stop because it was getting deep. But I did get past my house garage. Bring on the rain and get this snow gone.

This is short, have a lot to do and I Wish all a very Happy New Year with God's blessings.

Getting things ready for my date and getting nervous. Feel like a teenager.

All take care be safe and have a glass of wine tonight.

Catch you tomorrow in 2011. Tomorrow I am meeting Ivan at 2 so I will let you know. His company left today instead of Sunday.

FREEDOM

Thursday, December 30, 2010

December 30, 2010 Thursday

I am finally going to get out of my house and I know the mail person will be very happy since I haven't gotten my mail all week. The snow is deep and cold so I didn't go out in it. Tomorrow I am going to try and get outof my driveway and that may be stretching the truth. I am suppose to go and bowl for the Wednesday league and the other team member who was to bowl with me did it today. So I will be alone and my shoulder is hurting from shoveling snow not good. I will do the best I can and take pain meds to do it. I stay off them most the time but when I bowl I need them for my back. Vicious circle I would say.

2 more days and I meet my friend, hope he likes me but if he doesn't his lost.

Snow is still here but Callie is going on the ground now. Today I cleaned the deck from her daily business. The men came and took the trash barrel and they didn't even drive all the way in the driveway. Thank goodness I am going in the afternoon so more snow can melt before I have to go out. I will leave early so I can work my way out of the driveway. Pick up the mail and hope I bowl good. I may stop and see my girlfriend, and go to the grocery store.

I am going to stop and see if I can get to the Senior Center before they close or wait till next week when I bowl mornings and I know they will be open.

Each day I am going to try and do more out of the house and find something to do. I am versatile and can do a lot of different things so now is the time to put them to use.

All take care and if you go out to celebrate New Years Eve have a great time and be safe.

God bless you with many blessings in 2011. Love the Spark people.

Catch you tomorrow waiting for our New Year.

Joyce

    Hi Joyce, I hope you make it to bowling. Mark is having "bowling withdrawal" since his league was off yesterday and there weren't any tournaments last weekend. emoticon Thankfully he will be back in action on Sunday!! I'm sure your new friend will like you and you are soooo right, it will be his loss if he doesn't!! Be careful while your out and about.

    You're so funny... Because I'm living in the high desert in CA we don't get snow like you're getting, but this wind makes things bitter cold! I went out this morning for my 5 mile run and only got 1/2 done cuz I was freezing... Yes, I had mucho layers on but it didn't seem to help... Good luck on your date(?) with your friend, I'm sure he'll like you, hope you get to go bowling next week, and you have a blessed and JOYFUL new year to come... emoticon
