As soon as I pick up the camera, Katie opens her eyes. It's really hard to get a shot of her asleep.
I had such a scare yesterday morning. I turned on my computer and my desktop screen was exactly the way it was when brand new, my documents, photos, the Internet connections, all my notes and programs, everything was missing. Scared the heck out of me. I turned my computer off at midnight the night before, and it seemed fine, normal. First thing yesterday morning, nada. I thought I had been hacked or had a virus or something that wiped everything out.
Then, I calmed down, prayed a lot, and pulled up my blog on my phone. It was there, and the photos were still in the posts, so I knew they were also somewhere on my computer. I remembered that in Windows 7 there is a function that allows you to "restore" your computer to a previous set point that has been established, usually when something new was installed. I had installed updates to some Apple programs the day before, iTunes and a couple of others, and there must have been a conflict. The "restore" worked, and everything is back. Boy, was I holding my breath. :)
Like I don't have enough going on already!
Windy, rainy, stormy yesterday and today. The smell of rain was so nice, and I knew about the wind alerts, so I was expecting another day or two of high winds and sand creeping in everywhere. But - with the rain, the wind isn't blowing the sand around, so this is kind of like a regular storm. It rained so much last night, I woke up and started thinking, "Okay, I'm right next to a wash, but they told me I'm on high ground here. I wonder what's going on outside?" So I got my flashlight and shined it out the windows to see if there was any water creeping over the wash, but everything looked okay. Then I went back to sleep.
Today is cloudy, intermittent rain, sunshine, and windy. Possible thunderstorms. Tomorrow will be a bit better, and the rest of the week the forecast is for sun and temps in the 70's and 80's. That will be nice. :)
I didn't hear from the Utah RV shop, so I guess he's just not going to answer me. My friend here told me there's a 2-year warranty on my converter, so I went to their website to get the information on what I should do. It says the shop you bought it from needs to send it in for warranty, so I e-mailed them and told them the seller won't respond to me, and can I send it in myself or use a local shop to handle the warranty, because I'm in a different state now. The only problem is that the receipt he gave me lists the converter as a 60 Amp, and the one he installed is an 80 Amp, so I don't know if the company will even honor a warranty, since I can't prove I bought the 80 Amp. So now I'm waiting to hear from them before I go after the Utah guy. If they will fix the converter or send me a new/refurbished one, I'll take that cost off the bill he owes me. What a mess.
I was so tired of dealing with all the converter issues, when I woke up yesterday morning, after I figured out the computer "restore" thing, I tore into The Palms, stripped the bed and re-made it, vacuumed every inch of space I could find. Dusted and re-organized some stuff, visited for a while with a fellow camper, and all of a sudden the day was over. And no dust, sand or dog hair in sight. It turned out to be a good day.
Today is just quiet inside, noisy outside. Katie is sleeping and I've read blogs all day. I think I'll see if there are any good TV shows I've missed on Hulu.
Oh yeah, I wanted to show you the latest thing in RVs that I saw at the Post Office last week. An RV with a back porch:
From me and Katie, see you next time! :)
