Stockings Full of...

...Apples.

If you are my friend on facebook, you are surely aware from my status updates I am having computer issues once again.

Yes, once my super computer fix-it guy left the country for a business trip (to Singapore...where it is 80-90 degrees right now...boo hoo for him), my computer died. I did find it mildly entertaining that the computer died-no kidding-2 hours after he took off.

It has been a frustrating 10 days. After numerous emails to Microsoft, they acknowledged that they recent update did mess up my computer. Their thoughts on fixing it...wipe my computer clean and start over...or buy Windows 7. Really? Spend more money? You don't say?

Funny story (well, not really). I went to buy Windows 7 online and they would not sell it to me because they don't sell to military at an APO. The girl told me "yeah, you guys are like Canadians". Ha! And I was not laughing because I found her entertaining.

So, Microsoft, you find yourself on the naughty list this year. My wish is that Santa fills your stocking with coal...or just a bunch of Apples. :)

I am so missing you -- hope things are better soon. I have been crippling with my computer too but our youngest son still lives at home so I can fight him for his keyboard. Keep the faith -- and you shall overcome -- coal in the stocking is too good for Microsoft!!

Nothing is more frustrating that computer problems...I read it all on FB, so I hadn't stopped in here while I knew you were having difficulties. Hope with the new computer, you'll be up and running soon! Merry Christmas!!!

Oh, I hope you get your computer fixed. How aggravating..Perhaps you should ask Santa for an Apple Computer for Christmas..(couldn't resist)!
