#297: Computer Still Down But Not Me
Friday, April 23, 2010
Day three without my computer but I am enjoying the super fast speed connection offered by those the city provides in my neighborhood center. I think I'm getting spoiled by the speed and the large screens.
Got word today that the laptop repair guy is trying to restore my computer's operating system. He'll let me know Monday how things look. But relying on the center's computers is a good thing because the hours are limited and I was feeling overwhelmed by the amount of time I was sitting in front of the screen anyway, especially with our weather being as nice as it has been. I have just been sitting indoors too much.
I have found other positives during this problem time, too, such as the amount of decluttering and house cleaning getting done. I have a manuscript to begin inputting and editing but starting tonight I'll read over the draft while sitting outside on the porch, appreciating the cool evening and watching the squirrels chase each other around the trees.
I have been uplifted and encouraged by the positive SparkMails and profile page notes from fellow members wondering about Wednesday's missing blog and offering well wishes for a successful outcome to this computer setback.
There still is no answer to how the repairs or the cost of a new laptop will be covered but I remain positive and trust that all things will work together for good. As more and more members are discovering, being down and out does not mean we need to think negatively. There are always positives to be found in all situations, if we simply search for them.
And, I trust in the lore that a lady bug brings good fortune and keep the image of the one yesterday at the gas station in mind. Yes, things will work out. How? We'll see, but I know they will. I remain positive and upbeat.
