I just want to vomit already. I contracted a virus on my computer and will have to reinstall my entire operating system. I shouldn’t lose any work on my computer, but the hassle of this is about to do me in. I was on the phone yesterday for 3 hours and this was the final result. Now I have to back everything up, reinstall system, and re-download several programs that will be wiped during install. Please pray all goes well.
Despite this extremely inconvenient event, I am trying to think about all the positives I have in my life. The last couple of weeks have made me want to forget technology altogether, but I went through my Etsy shop’s recent reviews and it definitely cheered me up. I’m notified when I get a Review, but it doesn’t show me if they left a picture, so I was pleasantly surprised to find several customer photos of my signs with how they used them. It put a smile on my face and made me realize that technology has actually provided an income for me and my family that also allows me to stay home with my kiddos. So, I thought I’d share the photos here!
I’d update you with some life lately pictures, but my iPhone will not connect to my computer. I’m just a complete hot mess. I can’t find my credit card, it took me 2 days to find my external hard drive (which Ryan found in plain site on our entertainment center)…and when I plugged it in, I discovered it broke. How does an external hard drive, that is supposed to back up all your files, break? So I’m off to buy a new one this morning…exactly what I wanted to spend $60 on (in addition to the enormous money I had to drop for this removal of virus). My 4 year old poured sea salt in our white carpet because he was “making something” all while I was on the phone with Dell trying to fix my computer (I was ignoring my kids and this is what I get), so that was fun cleaning up. We got a hail storm yesterday…1 WEEK after getting a brand new roof. And I don’t even know how much sleep I’m running on at this point. You would not have believed what I looked like in public yesterday. I should have taken a picture.
I need a vacation. Or something. Overwhelmed, stressed, just a good old hot mess. I really keep asking God to help me keep things in perspective. In the grand scheme of things do they matter? No. Yes, they’re inconvenient and need to be addressed for life here on Earth, but things could be worse. Here are a few pics I snagged from my Facebook.
But then on the positive side of things, this kid can now buckle himself into his car seat. This is a big win! Saves so much time.
And lastly, you might have seen this on my IG if you follow me, but this is a sneak peek at my new coffee station. Can’t wait to get this set up. You know in between my superior mothering and hot mess of a life lately 🙂
Hope this post made you smile a little…and realize I definitely don’t have it together. Hopefully I’ll be back a little more put together.
