A Random Bunch Of Thoughts Squished Together Into One Blog Post

First of all, thanks to all of you who are hanging in there with me during this time of computer woes. I am, as I have said before, reduced to using my children's computer, which is a scary thing. I do not like my kids' computer-- it is slower because they have loaded it with unnecessary programs and lots of games. Also, none of my passwords are saved so things that I took for granted are gone. For instance, Amazon has no idea who I am, my favorite pages are not already cued up and ready to be clicked on, etc. I am, quite simply, lost.

And speaking of Lost, I watched the premiere with my husband. I am now one of the converted. It was good-- gripping and full of twists. We would be watching and I would say something I thought and my husband (a veteran of the Lost watching phenomena) would look at me and say, "Don't try to figure it out. Just don't." And so, no more CSI on Thursday nights-- I will now be in front of Lost. Because, well, my husband asked me to watch it with him this season. He was even patient with all my questions. So, I will slowly catch up. Watching this (thanks Cindy!) helped plus they ran a one hour "catch up" show before the premiere, which also helped.

Not much more to say other than that I am still here, still adjusting to life beyond the blogging world. I did win something on a blog, so that was totally cool, as it was something I really wanted to win!! I have not participated in the giveaway over at Bloggy Giveaways this week, because of the issues I have already discussed. But I won this over at my friend Amy's blog, so that was a nice consolation. Thanks Amy!

And thanks to all of you who keep checking back, my faithful friends. I am praying for us to find a solution to the whole computer issue-- we just need to find a decent laptop that doesn't have multiple weird inner problems. Foolish me, I thought that would be simple.
Pin It!

I am so right there with you. My computer is still in the shop so I am using hubby's... still.
Hope you get it resolved soon.
We miss you. BTW, I loved your devotion/quiet time this morning.

So happy to see you. :)
Can you swing a Mac? (By some incredible act of God we got ours for $13, but I know they are much pricier than that.) We love ours!!

Congrats on your wins. :) And DOUBLE congrats on becoming a Lostie!! How 'bout that Locke? I love him.

Thanks for the link to the LOST recap. Even though we consider ourselves long time fans, my husband and I looked at each other last night amazed at what we had forgotten since watching last year!

Hope you find a laptop that meets your needs and budget. My husband is a big believer in Apple.

I can relate to you using another computer and the whole password thing. That recently happened to me. I had to do a special request to like 3 different places to obtain what I needed just to log in! Arrrgh!

And girl, THANK YOU so much for the beautiful earrings for my birthday. I love them! You were so sweet to remember me and get me something. I treasure our friendship and the beautiful earrings.

I hope you are with computer soon:)
Love you,

Oh, and you can actually watch ALL of the first three seasons of LOST on "watch full episodes" -
