Hi Everyone!!

Well, I'm still having computer issues. So I came up to my mom's to use her computer. Do you know how frustrating it is to be completely without a computer? I can sometimes log-on but then within a matter of minutes this little window pops up telling me that Firefox has encountered an error and will need to shut down. But they always apologize for the inconvenience. Isn't that nice of them? So I thought maybe it might be Firefox. So I tried just using Explorer and that is no better. And until we can afford to have someone look at it, I remain in anguish. Kenny can't even download spyware because the "administrator is locked."

So how is everyone???? Did you all have a wonderful Christmas? Ours was delightful! Extremely busy and hectic but that's what it's all about, right? I had 20 people over for dinner. And everything went off without a hitch! Kenny surprised me with "The Journey" diamond pendant and stud diamond earrings. AND an MP3 player which is sitting around collecting dust because I can't download any music right now.

Please know that if you are sending me any emails, I'm not ignoring you. My mom tells me what everyone is saying in the comments. But if you're sending anything to my home email address I can't access it right now. And I miss everyone so much! I went 5 months posting and visiting everyone every day and now I'm blocked. I hate that! I am still remembering you all in my prayers and thoughts though. And I look forward to the day I can log in at home at visit everyone!! I'll come up here to my mom's again next week for sure and maybe then I'll have enough time to do some visiting too. I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to! Big Hug and Love to you all!! Keep us in your prayers.

Okay that's it. Get you, your husband, your children, your mother, your neighbors and anyone else you can recruit...give everyone a tin cup, practice your best down-and-out-pitiful looks and hit the streets. Start collecting the entire amount of spare change your town possesses and GO BUY ANOTHER COMPUTER. I insist. And when everyone starts whining about "how cold it is" or "how bad their feet hurt", remind them that the faster they collect enough money, the sooner they can go home and have a bowl of chicken soup. Now ya'll get busy!


Tammy said...

No Miz Julie,
I cannot begin to imagine doing without the computer as long as you have had to!

I hope it is all resolved soon!

Rosemary said...

So sorry about the computer issues.
I have missed your posts. Glad you had a wonderful Christmas. We did too.
I hope you get it all sorted out soon.

GASP - yay!! I'm so thrilled to hear from you! I think of you everyday and pop in just to see if you've made it through the computer chaos. We love you. You should know that when I'm blog surfing, I've noticed that the girls are asking each other if anyone has heard from you. Some have entered your name in the giveaways because they know it's something that you'd love. You've made a big impact in 4 months! We'll be here when you get back. Praying for you, as always. Blessings... Polly

It is not the same without you. I've missed reading that thing you always say to me when you leave comments. I miss the other stuff too, but I really miss that thing. You know what thing I'm talking about.

In fact, I feel like saying that exact same thing about your computer right now.

I miss you! Christmas was good, we missed my dad (who passed on in March) but we are all fine. I can't wait to get you back visiting and all. I wish I had a computer to send you!

justabeachkat said...

Hi there stranger! I've sure missed you. I was excited when I saw on Bloglines that there was a new post from you. I just knew you were back up and running. Sorry to hear that's not the case. I agree with Kari...beg, borrow, or steal, but get a new computer as soon as you can. We all miss you girl!


PAT said...

Good Morning Julie,
Oh my, how I have missed you and having coffee with you of the morings. I hate that you are having computer problems, but I understand tho. I do hope you are able to get it fixed soon. I couldn't imagine going that long without a computer, although, I have done it before, but I wasn't blogging at the time either. Take care my frienda and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours. Know you are missed and we love you. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hope it gets fixed soon.

So good to "see" you! It is so frustrating when your computer is on the blitz! Glad to hear you're doing well and here's hoping the computer issues are repaired in no time! You're gonna have to phone your posts into your mom! *lol* Take care!

Dear Julie,
I'm so sorry to hear that you're having computer problems...hang in there, sweetie!

We had a nice Christmas.

I've been out of the loop a little because of Christmas and sickness but am now, slowly but surely, making my way around the blogging world.

Miss you very much!
Love, Kim

Ruth Welter said...

Hi there Julie, thought I would drop in and say hi. So sorry you are having computer problems. They are the worst and I've had them myself in the past. We've had hard drive crashes (that causes lots of issues) more times then I want to count. It is just a bummer when you cannot check e-mail and get on the internet, right from your own house. I hope everything improves for you soon. Happy New Year to You.

Bethany Hissong said...

I'm glad you sound so good and had a good Christmas!! I was worried about you... no computer can be completely frustrating and you probably feel cut off from part of your world right now! Well, we're all still here, so come back soon!!

NeereAnDear said...

Hey sweet one... missing you terribly.... hope your computer gets fixed soon.... have you called firefox and asked about it?... I have never heard of an adminstrator lock but that sounds like your firewall which will keep you out of everything!

Come back soon .... missing my daily cup of Julie

Maybe we could start up a "Julie's Computer" fund amongst all your blogging friends! :)
Hope your computer is fixed soon! :)

Meggie said...

Hey Julie: So great to hear from you. Glad to hear you had a good holiday. You must have been a very good girl to get such nice gifts from Kenny. I miss you but certainly understand your frustrating!

Sling said...

Hi Julie!..
Being without a computer is like losing a limb,..or forgetting the combination to the lock on your self-storage unit.
It just sucks.
Nice to see you out and about! :)

Michelle said...

Have a wonderful Sunday
