Unexpected Break
It would seem the demons have attacked my laptop. Somehow, in spite of having McAfee Security Suite, and two other programs loaded onto my computer to ward off spyware, my computer is bogged down so deep, it can't even open the front door. So I'm off to Best Buy this morning, with my laptop tucked under my arm, praying the GeekSquad can clean it up without removing all our photos that aren't printed out yet. That would about a year's worth of photos - minor things like the two newest grandbabies' births, Dan's college graduation, last Christmas, our cruise, and the last three other vacations. Just minor stuff we wouldn't mind losing...

On top of that, my big secret surprise. Our son is arriving from Dallas tonight, for a weekend surprise visit to celebrate Don's no-smoking anniversary. We're planning to have him just walk in during coffee tomorrow morning, then take his Dad to lunch tomorrow, and tomorrow night all of us in this state will head to the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate. Saturday night is Landon's first birthday celebration at a local park, and we've got a bright red wagon wrapped in a big bow, to deliver to him. Sunday church, with two of our three kids, will be a treat, drop Dan at the airport after a too-quick visit, then Don and I are off to see the pre-season Steeler game, via tickets from a friend.

So a full, full weekend, that apparently will not involve any computer time, and hopefully next Monday I'll be back in business. And if anyone out there can recommend a good on-line, free email that would be great. Has anyone else ever noticed, at the bottom of the yahoo page, that it says, "We collect private information." That would be cookies that track your internet activity, and it's one place I intend to start doing some cleanup.

Not what I'd intended blogwise this week, but sometimes things just don't work out as planned. Keeping it all in perspective, it could be a lot worse, at least it's not payday so I don't have to pay bills online, and the computer isn't a desktop so I can just grab it and drop it on the counter with the Geeks. Back later.
