Three Day Technology Nightmare

Soooo, how was your three day weekend?  Well, let me tell you about mine but first I must warn you that the next paragraphs will contain much whining and moaning.......

Soooooo my home pc crashed but no big deal I have my laptop for work. Got my stitches our Friday, worked from home no problems. Saturday I get up way later than I normally sleep and feeling kinda yucky but my phone dings with an email and I see that the grades from my previous class have been posted. So, I boot up the old trusty laptop for work - did I mention this is my work laptop - and what do I get a notice from McAfee that is contained a Trojan - only it must not have done a good job because then I get the blue screen of death. So now I have NOOOOOO computer - I was completely beside myself. So I call my daughter to borrow her laptop and at spend all day Sunday from 9 am to 5 am researching and writing a paper that was due Monday ( I had planned to do this Saturday, Sunday, and Monday) I get it done because I need to get her laptop back to her Sunday as she has school work of her own to do. Then my grandmother tells me that my mother  had given her a computer that she hasn't set up that I am welcome to come and get to use until mine is repaired. So that was a good thing - I drove over there, she made her fabulous homemade cheesecake to send home to Mr Man for his birthday now that he is well enough to eat it. So I get this pc home - fire her up and she is working pretty good except now she is running a little sluggish but I installed my printer, wireless key and mouse, camerea, and McAfee but it is really late so this will be all the whining for now. Thank you for ear/eyes :) Can't wait to take my dead laptop into work so I can sit and do nothing while I wait for new PC GRRRRR

Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day.

That would be Angelina Jolie  I think she is the most beautiful woman alive and very fascinating, she doesn't care what other people and she is a HUGE humanitarian. Who do you think is the most beautiful woman today?

Frumpy/Comfy Day 5

Okay this outfit isn't the most figure flattering but I it was comfy and when I walked and looked down, it felt bohemian. The blouse is really cool but I think the pants take a little away from it. The blouse came from JcPenny's, pants from Jessica London, and the shoes at a yardsale. The shoes are almost ready to retire, I noticed a give in the side of the shoe meaning a blow out is in the near future, just another reason why I MUST find the perfect black cork wedge heel shoe :) I must do a drive by of Ross's, Kristine has gotten the most fab shoes there!!!

Day 05 - A picture of your favorite memory.\

Now this one is tough, I have soo many good memories so I guess I will pick my California vacation. I have always wanted to live in California and have been fascinated by California. So Mr Man made my dream come true and took me on week vacation in Huntington Beach, CA. We did something different everyday, first day Beach, Second Day para sailing and shopping little boutique in Newport, 3rd day went to Magic Mountain - FUN - 5th day Beach again. Our accommodations were something out of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

So I get my stitches out and am working from home the rest of the day. Hope you guys have a wonderful and Safe Memorial Day!!!

I Feel Pretty....

I love this outfit  below. Another feel pretty outfit!! The blouse reminds me of the 70's and the colors are soooo me. I got this at JcPenney's along with the white capris. The fab orange shoes are from Monroe & Main. I love to wear outfits that make me feel good. Still on the hunt for a black pair of cork wedge heel. :)

This weather has been so crazy. I pray for those poor people in Joplin. We are expecting some severe storms again tonight. Mouth is getting a little better but my home PC is crashing and I need tires on my car. Mr Man should be going back to work after the holiday but it's going to be 3rd shift - 9:30 pm - 6:00 am - days off Sunday and Monday but on a lighter note - I am loving my new job and feel like I am doing a good job.

Day 04 - A Picture of your favorite food. I love shell fish. Not a fish fan but love lobster, crab legs, and shrimp. Something else that I love is potatoes. I can eat them raw, boiled, baked, fried, mashed, just about any way you want to cook them for me :) What is your favorite food?

Ultimate Feast®
Have a great day!!!

Day 2 - 60 Day Challenge

Necklace - rework from Kristine
Earring - Kristine masterpiece
Blouse - Cato
Capris - JcPenney
Shoes - Shoe Dept
Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been close with for awhile.

Ahhh, while the past couple of years I have forged many new relationships with Taylor, Kim, Kim, Susie, and Tavie, but the one I spend the most time with would be my dear friend, Kristine. Our paths crossed 2 years ago and she was like a breath of fresh air to me. She is the one who introduced me to blogging, she and her sister like to read some bloggers that are my favs now - and I kinda rolled my eyes at her about reading the blogs - okay I didn't kinda - I DID roll my eyes but I decided to see what the fuss was about and I LOVED it so much I just had to have a blog of my own :) She is creative and does the neatest things with her children - her children have well rounded interests - I told her that I hope she is not busy when I have grandchildren to coordinate my activies with them HAHA I suspect her children are really clones of herself as they look JUST like her LOL Most importantly, I respect and trust her immensely and that to me are VERY important elements. What elements do you value in a friendship? Do you know what traits draw you to certain people? I tend to look for a sense of humor, wit, love of clothes, and creative people fascinate me. Let me know what draws YOU in like moth to the light? :)

Day 1 = 60 Day Challenge

Earring and necklace - Mr Man
Blouse - JcPenny
Slacks - Jessica London

Day 01 - A picture of yourself with 10 facts.
1) I have two children, boy 24 and girl 17
2) I have been divorced twice
3) Live with current boyfriend 13 years
4) I feel lucky to work for the company that I do
5) I am trying to lose weight through Weight Watchers
6) I have  8 more weeks until I receive my Bachelors in Business Administration
7) I want to get my Real Estate License
8) I still live in the same town I was born
9) My father died when I was 10 - I barely knew him
10) I hate to be corrected or criticized in any way

The sun is shining!! I am so glad to see the sun that I don't know what to do. My new job is going soooo well, I am sooo in my element, talking to customers and still using my technical skills - I am sooo fortunate and my new bosses are FAB - my old boss was as well. I have been very fortunate in my career that I have had only two bosses that I did not like. I have had both male and female bosses and have no preference. I currently have female, I left a team with a male boss and predominately men, for a team lead by a woman and predominately women. The trend now is job hoping, most people don't stay in a job as a career, I am old school and extremely loyal to my employer. Do you remember all of the jobs you have had? Let me see if I can remember:
Age 16 - laundry mat attendant, Orange Julius
Ages 17 - 19 - Factory making wire harnesses
Ages 19 - 22 - Kelly Temp
Ages 23 - 25 - CPA firm - secretary
Ages 25 - 27 - School System - Maintenance Secretary
Ages 27 - Present - Customer Service Rep, Customer Service Supervisor,  Research Supervisor, Customer Service Manager, Account Manager, Software Support Manager, Business Analyst, Payer Services Manager
Moonlighted - Waffle House/ Dillard's
Nothing exciting or strange in my work background, how about you? Do you have a unique background or unusual job?
Have a great day :)

Muddy Monday

BRRRR this rain is bringing some cool air with it. I am not a huge fan of all this rain especially on the anniversary of the floods from last May :(  I am not very political but I am glad that the terrorist  responsible for the 9/11 destruction is dead.
