A virus...the most dreaded word for PC users.
Our laptop has a virus and now our computer is being fixed - for a week! Thankfully, we have a family friend who we trust to take care of this, but a week without a computer (internet especially) has not been fun.
I realize many good things could come out of this new found time, but we are about to close on our first house next week and not having regular internet access has made it challenging these past couple of days.
I keep telling myself - millions of people bought homes without the internet, why should my experience be any more different or difficult.
Right now I'm sitting at my sister's quiet home (she and her husband are at work and the kids are at school) trying to take care of as much work as I can on her computer before she gets back.
But all I'm really doing is cyber snacking...what can I say I love surfing the net!
