Yesterday (11/17) was my birthday. It was a pretty good birthday, overall. My mom made stew, one of my favorite meals and we had cake and Rocky Road ice cream. I got to watch some football and even though the stinking Niners lost, it was still fun to watch a game.
Jen played a tricky game on me. She asked me to get a clean burp cloth out of the diaper bag and was telling me where it was. She kept saying, “it’s right THERE. No, right next to the wipey container. Can’t you SEE it?” I think she finally reached in and pulled out what she was trying to guide me toward and it was the new 4 DVD extended version of “The Fellowship of the Ring.” It was funny because the day before I had thought she might do exactly that, but I didn’t give it much thought because I didn’t think it would have arrived so soon. It was a happy surprise.
Had a board meeting at the church at 7:30pm and after that went back home and fought with my PC which has been spontaneously rebooting and/or shutting down, and that’s not a good thing at all. I updated the drivers for my video adapter and if that doesn’t fix it I honestly think I may cry and just give up on computers altogether – I’ve pretty much had it. The whole dang thing is pretty much brand new and it’s very frustrating to me to have something I built not work the way it should. I just hate it. I can’t tell you how much I hate it. It’s like a fiery ball of spite burning in my soul and the only thing I can blame is my skill as a technician. And that just makes it worse.
