Melodramatic Mama


Before I fuss and moan, I want to wish my oldest daughter, Rebecca Sue, a happy 26th birthday!  Happy Birthday, Becky!!!!!  I didn't just got lost in the shuffle of a crazy week.

Becky was due on April 8, 1981 but made her debut on March 31st...a 45 minute  I was on bedrest due to toxemia so God made sure she came fast and swift.  I was extremely high risk and a long labor would have been a nightmare.


Of course, I had to invade her facebook for a picture.  Don't ask me who this guy is but I know it's not her present BF.  She has tons of guy friends, or at least she did.  The quote is one she has now on her MySpace.  I couldn't find any bees I like so, oh well.  She is going to the museum today to view art...her first love.  She often says she has the soul of an artist living the life of science.  My firstborn and now my friend....


So, what would my life be without some minor frustrations?  I hate to even fuss because so many in JLand are dealing with such major health issues.

From Wednesday evening through last night, I had some major PC issues.  Being a technological guru....NOT...I was stumped and frustrated.  My AOL security center was a mess and not functioning properly.  I removed it and reinstalled it.  MacAfee kept popping up a suspicious file yet none showed up on the virus scan.  So, my security is excellent now but my PC was super slow and acting up.  AOL has an active security monitor when I downloaded and the technical advise was pretty simple to follow.  I'm not sure how all the default settings got screwed up but I did remove the Norton stuff that came with my PC.  Ialso compressed my C drive which took hours even though I run a clean up every couple of days.  My final fix was running Windows PC checkup and virus scan from the live security center.  All is well.  I'm still getting a message from MacAfee but the IT guy at work said if Windows found nothing it has to be a file that appears suspicious but isn't a virus.  So I have to contact Gateway or AOL to finalize this. 

My major concer now is the number of files on this computer.  155,000....oy.  I think Joey downloaded more music and games.  I really need to remove more things.

So, I'm way behind on journals because I didn't dare go online much while running all the numerous fixes.  They were slow enough as it.  But things do appear to be running faster.

Grizzly's bloodwork came back fine so he is taking an extra half a pill in the morning along with the Glucosamine and MSM from GNC.  I can't afford Glycoflex but honestly I think the GNC stuff is working well along with his meds.  He's been flying up and down the stairs again so keeping my fingers crossed that it lasts a while.  His arthritis will be progressive.

I'm off to get my snow tires removed.  I didn't get around to it on Wednesday.  I need my BF to load my other tires in his truck.  He may not want to take the cover off of his truck since it's raining today...grrr.

It seems like spring has sprung here finally.

Hi Chris! Happy Birthday to your daughter.  She's beautiful!  Really a knock out!  Hope you all have a good time for her Bday.
I was reading all you had done on your computer and was amazed. You are a computer wiz!!  I do the basic maintenance stuff, but anything more complicated and Joey has to come over to do it for me.  I ask him to show me, and he always "Forgets" so I think he actually likes to do it. LOL!
I had to get rid of Norton, it was totally messing with the computer.  
Glad to hear Grizzly is doing better.  I hope he stays well.

You lost me on all the things you did for your PC. I am glad they worked and you are on AOL. I need you here and safe and sound and happy. I am sad when you are sad. It is raining here too. Thank God Grizz is doing well.

Happy birthday Becky! I hope she enjoyed the visit to the museum, she's very beautiful. My second one was a 45 minute labour ....just get it over and done with! I'm so glad Grizzly's doing well, pets can be a worry can't they?! Have a good week. Jeannette xx

Happy birthday to Becky, Chris. Don't tell me about computer gremlins, spent last week kicking them off the PC here. Still not convinced it's been a wholesale success :-\

Oh what a beatiful photo graphic of your daughter and friend for her birthday.  The young with graphic artist moms and relatives really luck out  They must love these.  Sounds like worry land over PC.  Big Dave comes up and cleans up mine every now and then  A very handy man to knw.  He tries to foresee something that will give me a problem.  He has been keeping track of this computer ever since I got it.  He is now in charge of the Westward Ho computer lab.  He is now trying to get me hooked up to free broadband downtown on the public access to ASU for strudents and people in range and I am just across the street  I am so excited!   Gerry
