We got our computer back after it went all Pppfbbppphttttt on us Sunday night. On Monday we had to take it to Best Buy in Bastrop to be repaired. (An 80 mile trip there and back). Then we picked it up today.
The good news is we didn't lose everything. We had to load all our programs again, but the videos I thought I lost I didn't.
The bad news is that Photobucket REFUSES to load on both the main computer and my laptop now. I NEED my Photobucket accounts like a caffeine addict needs their morning java, but I can't get the darn site to load for me in the slightest. This means I might have to to use Flickr from now on.
Well, that's enough crying from me. Shared below are the Halloween Decorations I did in the house this year. The outside has nothing at all, which I'm still getting used to. Back when we lived in The Woodlands/Spring area, we were THE HOUSE to visit. (Same for Christmas). People always told us they'd make special trips to see our house. People would even pose for photos in our yard.
We don't do any of that out here at Crick Hollow though. In the country there just isn't any point since not many people would see it and there are no children around. Also, this house is a tiny dollhouse compared to our last one. We just don't have the room for storing the decorations anymore. We gave over half of everything away when we moved. (And that's pretty much e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and not just holiday decorations).
First my camera starts getting "lens error," then our new computer breaks down, and this morning my mother's new car breaks down. (She was about 5 miles away from home, on her way to vote). She had to get a ride home, but get this--- she NEEDS the car this weekend because she and her sister are supposed to meet up in Austin for a BIG meeting. (It's them meeting the child - now a grown man - my Mom's sister was forced to give up 46 years ago. Mom's sister is even flying down to Texas from Illinois, to meet her son for the first time). So now my mother might not be able to go and this meeting has been planned for weeks now.
