Well, there's nothing like getting up in the morning and having your beloved PC not respond to the touch of your finger on the power button! There were a scary few minutes where I thought that my computer (which I've been using for about 3 years now) was dead. Now luckily, a few people have my book, so that wouldn't be lost, but I haven't backed up my progress on my second book, nor have I backed up the work I have on my beading book. Yikes.
Thankfully, it turns out that it was just the USB half of my USB/surge protector giving up the ghost. It's older than my computer, and the one that my husband got at the same time died sometime last year. I was able to plug my computer in to the surge side and everything is OK now. Later today, I'll have to back everything important up. It was a good reminder that my computer is not invincible and I shouldn't trust it with what amounts to my life's work.
My Beading For A Cure project continues to give me trouble. I've finally decided that it's time to start all over again. Something's just not gelling and it gets worse the more I try to force it. My favorite charity deserves better than this! That said, I'm going to spend the weekend working on some business-related things, relax, clear my mind, and be ready to tackle it anew on Tuesday.
Monday will be blog and website work day. Expect to see a lot of changes and new sections to my page, and maybe a big article here on the blog -- which will actually be linked to my site now.
Have a great weekend!
