Woe Is Me!


Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm very sad now.
My laptop is completely falling apart!
That's why I haven't been visiting much.
I was having trouble with my "S" key. I would have to really poke it hard to get it to work.
Then...it got stuck so I got on line and read how to fix it.
I held my laptop upside down and spanked it's bottom like a new born baby!
Didn't help.
Then I vacuumed in between the keys. Nope, didn't help.
I even took a tiny little watercolor paint brush and swept under and as far inbetween and around that ole "S" key! Nope, still didn't help.


Well, I continued to try and type with that nasty "S" key and then the key itself just popped off!
I'm stubborn and don't give up easily.
I got a fingernail file and would poke it in the center of the little plastic thingy to type the "S".
Do you realize how often you use the "S" key when you type?
A bunch! A whole lot!


 
This looks so nasty, I know!
 
Well, Mr. Precious and I took a little three day road trip and now we're back home.
I turned on my puter and now it's going crazy and I think it's dyeing!
So...I'm on Mr. Precious' lap top at the moment but can't use it much because he uses it alot.
I don't think I've even told you, but after he was retired about a year, he became a Realtor.
He just has fun with it but his laptop is a busy one.
 
So, I just wanted you to know why I won't be getting to visit as I would like.
 
I'll be sad because you know how much I love you all and you're all such a big big part of my life.
So Mr. Precious is gotta get busy and sell a house so he can buy me a new puter! :)
 
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)
 
I'll pass on leaving you a Note Song because I don't feel like singing this morning. :(

  13. Hi Sheila, Sorry about you computer, aren't they such a pain at times??? No what you mean about the hubby needing to use the laptop, my husband is also a realtor after retirement. I am just glad that we live in a place where now we don't have to use "dial up" Oh my, talk about being on the computer a longgggg time to accomplish anything!! Ye-s-, S is a very important letter, hoping for better days ahead for all of you. Blessings, Linda

  23. OH NO Shelia, this is a disaster of the greatest magnitude. Do not let Mr Precious out of his (office) until he has made the appropriate amount of profit for a state of the art laptop suitable for a blogger of your sweet and tremendous standing!!! In this instance dear girl - nothing but the best will do! You could get a PINK one like mine!? With a PINK muse..... and a PINK pad er and pen and........mug, and........
    Hugs

  26. Oh, isn't it a bother with your laptop/computer doesn't work? Agggggh! Our old desk top died a couple of months ago and now my laptop battery is on it's last legs and I have to plug it in all the time. I refuse to buy a new battery! I'll say a prayer and cross my fingers :) that your husband sells a house so you can get a new laptop. Hugs and have a great weekend,

  27. Hi Shelia, I was sure you were not home when I didn't hear from you. You are always so faithful with your visits. I am so sorry about your laptop. It does look pitiful. I only use my laptop and I would feel really bad if something happened to it. I have a mac and I love everything about it. I hope you get a new one soon.
    Love, Jeanne

  28. I can totally identify with your dismay! My computer crashed a couple of weeks ago - and I was L.O.S.T.!!! New computer and it's just not the same. Be thankful you know before your computer dies completely. You can salvage your information for the new one when you get it. It will be nice to hear from you whenever you can get on your hubby's laptop. Any time with you will be wonderful!
