Last week of school. Laptop died. Paperwork due, but laptop necessary to get it done. Tech puts new hard drive in laptop so that it actually runs better than when it was new. However, paperwork still cannot be completed because all software has to be added back on to the laptop, which takes t... Fri, 12 May 2017 22:20:17 EST Ugh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6359505 Nothing but technical difficulties all day. Our IT guy came in to help me this morning, and dropped off a chromebook for me to use until he gets my laptop fixed, so I at least have internet access.

I was amazed that hubby was actually encouraging me t... Sun, 7 May 2017 17:02:06 EST Sigh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6358545 My laptop is on the fritz. Hopefully our IT guy can fix it on Monday. Not a good time of year to have added stress. Friday is our last day of school, and I have a ton of paperwork that has to be be finished before then. I can (for short periods of time) borrow my son't laptop for minimal sparking, but it doesn't have the programs I need to do my actual work. He graduates on Saturday, and has honors ceremonies and other things going on after school that I REFUSE to miss, so I can't exactl...
