Quick Update~

It was a bit of a nightmare with installing my computer yesterday, I think (LOL) that I've got all my files transferred to my new computer.  Yes, my oldie started giving me issues almost a week and a half ago and with consulting with a computer friend and hubby my only solution was getting a brand new one.
I had her for almost 4 1/2 years and my hard drive was starting to crash.  Every time I would get on in a flash it would shut down telling me it's collecting data for crash dump and one of my disks need to be checked for consistency  then it would go through 3 stages then restart.  It was getting so frustrating especially when I was in a middle of downloading my digis to print or a picture, it would shut down and when it would re-start   back on all my download files were gone :(. It took several CD-R's to down load all my important files, luckily I had packs of them.  Old school I did it the hard way, now I know better to get me a flash drive(time saver) hehe.  Hubby and I bought it Friday night and we had them install my anti-virus and MS Office programs and that took several hours for them to do.  And there went more $$$$ spent on my new computer.  Of course he didn't want to get me any cheaply one so he bought the top of the line.  
What blew me away is my mouse and keyboard is wireless, I'm stoked!  And majority all the new computers don't come with MS Office anymore.  Now I have Windows 8 and I'm trying to get used to all the new goodies in here.  So with this in toll, I've been segregating my files and will be by to catch up with you all real soon.  
Toodles for now~
