This box has been sitting on the floor of my office/sewing room since last Friday - inside is my new computer! The one I'm using is at least 8 years old (maybe older - not sure) which is a lifetime in computer years. The only thing that has been updated is a new power supply when the old one died and the monitor was replaced at Christmas. Sometimes it is so slow you can click on something then go fix a cup of coffee while waiting on it to load. Heck, sometimes you could cook a full breakfast. Sometimes it will just hang up and the only thing to do is restart the whole thing. (this is not an occasional thing - it is pretty much daily and if I spend too much time on it, more than once a day)
Anyway, being the computer idiot that I am, the new computer is still in the box. I'm sure I could hook it up and turn it on, but when it comes to moving stuff from this one to the new one, I'll leave that to the experts and my computer guy (aka - my middle son) is coming today! He will be spending the weekend helping me get set up and ready to go! For my part, other than cooking for him all weekend, I'm supposed to have gone through and made note of what I use and what I need moved over. I haven't done that part yet. (I have done my grocery shopping and I'm ready to cook, but. . .)
So - I'm off to put a roast in the crock pot, then I'll clean up all the crap that is in front of my computer and try to figure out what needs to stay and what needs to go!
Have a great weekend! Hopefully I'll be back next week!
