Last month I signed up for a shop on etsy.com to sell some of my original paintings, but I have not posted any for sale there yet because my family does not want to part with any of my original art. hmmm. I was thinking of a couple I could post for sale when I signed up for it, but it appears I will need to make some new ones first.

Then the computer  started acting weird last week. There was a weird sizzle noise after I shut it off one night and then when I got in the morning I noticed that the lights on the fans were blinking rhythmically and the fan was jerking back and forth. the LED lights in the back were also all blinking, and none of them should have been on at all since the computer was off. my husband thinks the power supply in the computer burnt out. So now we are going to need to save up a couple hundred bucks to get another one. We probably should have just done it when we upgraded the other components after our motherboard and chip fried during a power failure several months ago, but we were trying not to spend too much money at the time. The good news is were were able to get an old laptop up and running again yesterday. I thought it was broken because I could not get it to boot up–not even hard booting from the disk. I’m not sure what my husband did to fix it, but I am grateful to be back up and running until we can afford to replace the power supply for the PC.

The power went out, and like an idiot I neglected to unplug the computer. Wo is me when the power came back on it fried my pc! Hopefully it only fried the motherboard. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the hard drive is ok and that I will be able to retrieve all my photos. I’d been having trouble with my disk drive and had been unable to back things up recently. I had four months worth of photos I had not posted for sale yet as well as several years of digital family photos that are irreplaceable.

It is several months later and I am up and running again. We upgraded the hard drive, mother board, chip, memory, graphics card, a battery backup/surge protector and got one of those really nice flat screen high definition monitors and even a wireless mouse. I am so glad my husband knows how to fix computers and that we were able to find things on sale. We were able to salvage my photos from the old hard drive and I will be posting more soon 🙂
