Day From HELL...

Hello blogger friends! I am here....barely. I made it back from the holiday weekend okay. I was dirty and tired but I had lots of fun.

But then as I worked on my computer last night it froze. I worked on it half the night and it would only start up half the time and the other half of the time it would freeze within 3 minutes. FRUSTRATING!!! So I gave up about 1am and went to bed.

Got up at 6am for a training session where my trainer proceeded to tell me I look like shit (thanks for that) and need to rest. Then I had an awesome coughing fit and he annoyed me for about 45 minutes until I agreed to go to the doc (where I waited for an hour after my appointment time to be seen).

The verdict is....respiratory infection. Yeah for me (and Z packs). So tomorrow I shall take the day off - but the fat camp administration is NOT happy about it.

So then it was back home to deal with my computer. I spent TWO HOURS on the phone with some really nice (yet heavily accented fellow) in a foreign land. I performed surgery on the laptop multiple times.

The diagnosis is.....fried motherboard. Oh sucky, sucky! I have a super slow desktop from 1995 (which my poor husband uses every night) and we attempted to go online and build and order a new computer. HA!

Let's just say I am now at best bud's house using one of her fabulous computers to order a new one for myself. It is ordered.....estimated to be delivered in about 3 weeks. I hope that is a conservative estimate and it will actually be sooner. Time will tell.

Good news - my old computer was 6 years old so I ordered a much better one for way less money this go around.

Bad news - I have tons of pictures and files on that computer that are going to be a pain to get off with a fried motherboard.

Other decent news - I ate some crap this weekend but in moderation. The scale was at 211.5 this morning. But no more weighing until Friday. If I do not lose weight this week, I blame my trainer. He is making me cut back for two days. The thought of it is giving me Restless Leg Syndrome.

Hope you all had a super holiday (and for those outside of the US, I hope you had a great weekend anyway). May you all be HUGE LOSERS this week!

Man, I feel like I have what you have, I can barely breathe! Anyways, this was a great post, although Im sorry to hear about your computer.

I dont know where you ordered from, but Dell gave me a 3 week estimated delivery date and I got my computer in 4 days lol so hopefully it wont be too long :)

I had the same thing happen to me a couple of months ago with my computer - and I was so mad at myself for not backing up my pictures! Luckily my 19 year old son was able to somehow get them off of my dead computer - lesson learned.

But the good news is, that aside from having to spend some money that I hadn't planned on, I now have an awesome computer with Vista and the new Office - love both of these programs! Hope your computer comes sooner rather than later!

Feel better soon - sick in the summer is not good!

Awe, I hope you get better soon! Don't push yourself - let you body get well. You don't want to mess with a respiratory infection.
