Online again!

I'm back online again, thanks to the purchase of a new computer. I checked to see if my old one could be fixed, and learned it would cost more money than the purchase of a new one.

I bought another Dell laptop which has a bit more ram than my previous one. The price for it had come down — $150 less. I guess that is usually true with electronics. I paid an additional $60 for everything on my previous hard drive to be downloaded to the new computer, but as far as I can tell, that didn't happen. For instance, all of my photo folders show "empty." I will have to call them to check on it, but as of now, I have no voice.

My head cold moved into laryngitis on Friday, plus it has given me a lot of coughing. The cough is productive, but not fun. Except for picking up the new computer yesterday, I have stayed home in the "resting" mode. I had to miss Sarah and Peder's birthday supper yesterday, and today I am missing church and another birthday get-together of choir friends. I have a dental appointment at 8 am tomorrow, but may need to somehow cancel it.

Did you know we got 4 to 5 inches of snow yesterday? Now the fun begins. There were over 400 fender-benders in the twin cities yesterday. THANKFULLY, it is supposed to warm up next week. They are predicting temperatures in the 40s and 50s starting tomorrow!

Good Lord! Feel better least you have a nice new computer to play (and communicate) with. Maybe you can e-mail your dentist?
