It's meltdown time here at the cottage!

I really wish I was here right now!

Just thought I'd let you all know that just about every piece of electronic equipment or gadget I have is on the blink! Lets start with the "check engine" light that wont go away despite going to the shop a few times and then theres the good ol cell phone that doesnt work in my house and sends & receives text messages whenever its NOT convenient. The computer, hmmmm. Where to start, well thats easy enough right? Wrong. The Word program is not working even though its been uninstalled, reinstalled, repaired and has had a remote tech guy log into it. And then my beloved printer or is it the Publisher program that wont allow graphics to be flipped for printing. And last but not least, my camera that won't let me download pictures of last weekend's Vintage Marketplace. Oh and I forgot how pictures & text come and go from Blogger and Facebook. Lets just say its going to be a long night and a very long Friday! Ugh.....
I'll be here under the mess!

Elecronics.... love them/hate them. Your phone sounds like mine... And mine likes to take a text I just wrote and send it to someone ELSE, randomly, from my contact list! YIKES! :)

Sorry it's stress-time for you... We do seem to have become "married" to all things electronic these days -- makes me wonder if that's a good thing, or not. But we're here now, so there' no turning back, I suppose! :)

I guess when all else fails you can always run up to Kinkos or something and do your copying/printing there?

And hope the "check engine" light stays off for the trip?

Love ya, girl!

UGH!!!!!!!! Car stuff and computer stuff. The true arsenic in a really good day. I feel for you, my friend. Nothing puts a sour look on your face or in your stomach quicker than either one of those things. Sometimes I think we should go back to horses and pen with paper. Then I remember that horses can colic and die. Pens run out of ink...

Make one of your pretties and lose yourself in something wonderful. If that doesn't work - a quart of scotch usually does it for me! LOL Cheers! - Kathy

Oh Sharon! Hmmm... Maybe a little back yard vacation is in order???

I had a similar *morning* recently: The Internet was mysteriously down so I decided to go to town and use it but my van battery was dead so I said WHATEVER! I'll watch a movie! But then my DVD player wouldn't work! Ha! I had to laugh!

For the pat 10 years, I've driven second hand Areostar vans and each one had a "check engine" light that never goes off! I just ignore it. :)

Hope your day eases up on you! ♥

The joys of technology can quickly become the woes of technology!

Toooo Funnnny! I'm sorry, I know it's a kinda hell to go through an electronic nightmare like this, but because I FEEL your pain, I can't help but giggle. Oh, have I ever been there!!!
I hope the technical fairy godmother comes to your house tonight while your sleeping & MAGICALLY fixes everything!!!
Big Hugs,
Susie
