Computer problems continue….

Ok, so I have so many blogs drafted, however a blog entry is so not a blog entry without pictures. And since I cannot upload and publish pictures on my old mac, I am holding off on continuing this blog until I finally can get a new computer. I am hoping beyond all hopes that this can happen soon, as I have so many fantastic topics to be talked about!!
So please stay tuned…. and once I get a new computer I’ll be back up and running with lots of fun stuff to read!

Computer Problems

Hello out there, well I want to apologize for my absence this week. I have been having computer issues this week, therefore unable to get to my blog! I am in desperate need of a new computer but don’t have the funds to get a new one. So I have been borrowing the computer of the 9 year old girl I nanny….. yes a 9 year old has her own computer!! Don’t ask me why. So I had to give it back since virus threats starting popping up and she has no spyware, so I didn’t want her computer to die. Then my mom was able to get a super old computer from a co-worker of hers, however that computer wont connect to the internet for some reason… grr!!! So I am now on my super old mac, which is only able to do a few things, and if I am lucky I’ll be able to get through this blog post without the internet freezing, forcing me to “force quit” without saving……

Anyone want to donate a nice new computer to my “Erin is broke and needs a new computer fund”??? Lol

Unfortunately nothing too grand happened this week. Mainly a lot of waiting to hopefully hear back from places where I submitted my resume, and re-organizing my list of places to contact about job opportunities.

In addition to that, there has been the whole, trying to re-adjust myself with my workout regime as the weather gets colder. Since running is still fairly new to me I don’t quite have all of the correct gear yet, and as the weather gets colder I am realizing that in fact I actually do need a few pieces to make my runs efficient. Trust me, I’ve tried working around it by wearing long sleeve cotton shirts, but they absolutely do NOT work. They do absolutely nothing for blocking wind, and once I start sweating it just holds the sweat and makes me chilled to the bone! Brrrrrrrrr!!!

So I am making a list of items I need/want and have been doing my research for discount sports stores online. Oh how I wish I could get a job so I could have the funds to get these things! *Positive thinking inserted here*

Besides all of that, I have started brainstorming for fun handmade christmas presents that I will make this year. Being super tight on money brings out my creative artsy side in a major way. Which I don’t mind at all, especially now that I have more time to be able to create things. I absolutely love arts and crafts time as I have mentioned before. I’d share my ideas, but since a few family members may possibly be reading this blog, I will have to keep those ideas on the hush hush.

So, I am hoping to get this whole computer situation cleared up soon so that I can start posting more interesting, fun blogs again soon!! (my old computer is so old that the internet only works in html mode, and therefore I am not able to upload any fun pictures!!! rawr!)
