Computer trouble

Well, shucks! My computer monitor went kerpluey. My repair guy says "Replace it." But now I have a choice to make. Buy just a monitor and keep my computer tower with XP and hope it doesn't go next or buy a notebook with that yucky Vista on it. I'm going to wait to see what my Tax refund might be, could be I can't afford the new notebook anyway. But this curtails my designing until I can make a decision. Luckily, I already uploaded your birthday gift and I'll give it to you early, just in case something else goes wrong. (It was going to be handed out on Friday the 13th. Yep! Every so often my birthday is actually on Friday the 13th!!!) I can still get online at work, so let me know if you like it or not. That will cheer me up, anyway.

I hate February. I know it's my birthday month but if something is going to go wrong in my life, it happens in Feb. My husband left me on my birthday, then the divorce was final in Feb. My dad died in Feb. My 1st cousin died in Feb. Last Feb, my mother was gravely ill and we almost lost her. She has since promised me NOT to die in Feb! LOL! These are just SOME of the things but they are the most devastating. So, here we go again. Keep your fingers crossed for me as this is just the beginning of the month. Who knows what else can go wrong before March 1st!

Ok, my birthday gift to you! (Say a prayer as you download. My bad luck has never rubbed off on anyone else before this but it helps to be on the safe side!) I just made up a little group of genealogy wordart to go with Grandmother's Parlor. I love genealogy!! Hope you do, too!

Here's the preview:
Photobucket

And you can go here to download:
Grandmother's Parlor Wordart Gift

Ok, hope this works and you can see the preview. I've never tried to put an image from photobucket on here before. I always upload a pic from my computer so hope you can see it and that you like genealogy as much as I do! Until next time - BIG HUGS!

Ohhhh, you silly girl!!! And I thought I hated February.... You have every right to hate it!! What a rotten MAN (if you wanna call him that, and yeah, I am being really nice...lol) to leave you on your birthday... Someone hit him in the head with a brick! LOL Don't worry, he'll get his day, in all due time!!!
I have a month like it's called MAY.... 5 days before my birthday, Mom decides she can't stay here anymore, and off to the heavens she went, no warning, no nothing! Then 2 days later some jackweed smashes my car and it's totalled...Yeppers, thats MAY.....LOL I tend to hide in that month...like under me desk with a bag full of popcorn to throw at peeps as they walk by, makes me feel better...hahahaha... WANNA A BAG????
Ok, I am rambling here, I can see your eyes rolling....I'll stop! But before I do... I love the word art!!! THANKS soooo much!!! I'm saying a few prayers for you to get through the rest of this month.... ohhhh, one more thing....LMAO..... Vista isnt that bad, I've heard many stories about it and it seems everyone who has a problem either has a laptop or they don't know what they are doing... and if you are ones of those that don't know what you are doing.... YOU know where I am, I would be happy to help any way I can....
Ok, I'm done, I promise!! LOL
Sorry for taking up all this space! LOL

Take Care sweetie!!!!

Thank you so much for such a beautiful kit. It reminded me of my grandmother's house when you wrote about your grandmother's parlor.
I can understand why you don't like Feb. very much. Here's hoping for you that this Feb. will be joyful and all others to come.

I think Feb can be a "blah month" for a lot of people... it has to with "OK I AM OVER WINTER" syndrome. I get that way too sometimes. You seem to have especially unpleasant memories, and it makes me sad for you. Perhaps you can prepay all the bills by the end of January - and just skip right on over to March... just give March 58 or so days - or January the same...

Love the word art. Thanks so much for sharing. I want you to know I have been sucked in the Idol Vortex - wasn't that you that told me to try it?

I am with you - don't tell my buddy Crops - I hate Vista. It isn't that it is SOOOO different from XP - it just hinders so many programs. I am still not functioning completely since changing puters. I may have to give Crops a shout so she can help me through. I say get the monitor and a decent backup drive... Let's hope Uncle Sam makes that possible!

Have a great one!
