I'm soooooooo frustrated right now. I'm not lying!!! I have been on the phone with Dell from 11pm...it is now 3:45am & I just got off. Ok, I'm trying to get the Service Pack 2 that I didn't have on my computer. It said 'Access was Denied' so I call them...they do some things remotely & then I'm getting blue screens & they can't get me in. They say I may have lost everything & I swear they are soooo lucky they are in a different country! They finally get me to a restored mode & all my files are present. I do however have to go out & get like 2 flash drives tomorrow to save them all. I have almost 5 GB of files. Ugh! Powerpoints & pix for my students no doubt.Then they are DHLing me a new Windows with Service Pack 2 on it & we are going to try to redo everything. It was working fine before the first girl started to do things to my computer! I was tired in the first place & now I'm up until 4am and I was planning on getting up early & working on my deck & cleaning & organizing. Right! I was doing some things as they were working on my computer...2 laods of laundry, dishwasher, trash etc but I'm just not a happy camper right now. My computer is 5 years old but it was still working perfectly fine for me. I just wanted to get the Service Pack 2 on there so I could get the Office 2007 on it because they upgraded at work & it is just getting too confusing without it & the only way I will learn all the changes is if I am forced to use it.

Well, I better get some sleep. I went up north to a big craft show today & got just a few things & then went to The Container Store & then the Wal Mart they had there for cat food & a few things. The Container Store has the Casabella products. I like the gloves & the sponge clothes. I use the gloves for my turtle tank & then when I'm using cleaning products. I was getting a bit of my headache back on & off as I had yesterday all day. When I was at PT it got better all of a sudden. I'm thinking it is Sinus & something I did shifted the pressure. I was fine this morning but it was sneaking up a bit throughout the day. I opened my car windows a bit & that helped I think.My bro had a headache too...I think it is the barometric pressure & the rain etc. I always seem to have problems in April. We've had cooler weather so maybe it was a bit delayed. Walgreens faxed my allergist Wed but he hasn't gotten back to them. Ugh.

Well off to bed. I hope I can sleep in a bit & still get a good amount done tomorrow. Dell better get my computer working or they are getting to hear about it.

Remember the "Dell Dude"?  The blonde guy with the tag line, "Duuuuude, you're getting a Dell!" and he lost his spokesperson role when he was busted for pot.

I suspect they moved him into the tech support department...in fact me thinks he's managing it :)
