Computer Problems Sure Can Cause Stress!

Just before Christmas our computer 'died', but my son replacing the video card 'revived' it! But, when it 'went down for the second time', he could not 'resusitate' it!
Maybe that is how I felt when we 'lost' our internet access. It was as bad as being without a telephone for communication! Even 10 years ago, my feelings would have been much different. Internet access was not so important to me. Besides the personal aspect of emailing friends and family around the globe, surfing the web, and joining ning social networks, and blogging, I have ventured into the business world online.
Selling on Etsy, Bonanzle, and occasionally Ebay, encouraged me to try on my own.
Designing and starting my own interlinking websites, for vintage and antique sales, learning as I went along, was challenging. The unique idea of the websites, gave me great satisfaction...the more I could accomplish! You can 'teach an old dog new tricks'! LOL
Then came the terror of the crashing computer! Luckily, my son was able to transfer my files from the old hard drive onto our new PC, after he had set it up.
This was after waiting for everyone in our household to recover from the flu over the holiday season, and my son to return from an out of town trip.
I know I'm not the most patient person in the fact...I'd like things done 'yesterday'! LOL Now I'm waiting with 'bated breath' for my son to put a program for uploading, and a better Paint Shop, on our PC, so 'I' will be at full operating mode! LOL But please God grant me patience in this New Year!
