totally random

-- now that i've had this blog template or skin or background (whatever they're calling these things now), i'm not sure i like it anymore. too busy. i'm a simplistic kind of girl. too much clutter in my house. i don't know if i want it on my blog. my kids asked me, "where's the rainbow?"

-- i don't know if i can get the rainbow back. my desktop computer gave me a funny message and when i contacted tech support, they said i would have to completely re-install Windows, which means i'll lose everything on my computer. the way the tech said it, you would have thought it was no big deal.

i on the other hand wanted to cry - all my digital pictures (minus the few i put on cd) were on there, along with countless other things i was meaning to back up... soon. looks like it's too late. my husband said we could take it to data doctors and maybe get some of it back. i can only hope.

-- i've never had a computer completely crash on me before. no wonder i'm feeling melancholy.

-- i didn't mean this to be a negative blog post. i'll try to come up with something light for the next few.

-- tea with my friends yesterday was lovely. i especially loved those chocolate covered macadamia nuts and the Milano cookies.

-- tea with friends was also a birthday party for me. i love birthdays, and i love getting presents. i can hardly wait to spend that gift card for Barnes and Noble, but the book i really want comes out in January, so i'm going to have to wait. sigh.

-- my husband bought a new stereo and connected our PS3 to it, so now when the kids play their games, it always comes through the speakers. i'm not sure if i like that or not. it's sound overload for me. of course, they think it's great because when the guns fire, it sounds like you're really there. oh joy.

-- i have one more author to interview and i'm very excited about this one, but i have to alter my questions and i just haven't been in the mood to do that lately.

-- i also haven't been in the mood to write, which is sad since i have a sequel to finish. not sure what's going to get me in the mood and i'm having trouble just pushing through to write it anyway.

-- time to go do something productive. the list of today's chores is long and blogging isn't getting them done.

Oh so sorry to hear about your crashing computer!

But I do understand about the not wanting to write at this time of year. Despite a mad flurry of writing I had a couple of days ago I have not touched my WIP in some time. A break is a good thing. Next year awaits and I will be ready. Merry Christmas to you and thank you for commenting on my blog while I have been MIA in blogging world. :)
