Trying to hold back my excitement… - LariLee's Hutch

Feb. 14th, 2014 10:39 pm Trying to hold back my excitement…

I'm trying hard not to be excited. After 16 months of being practically computerless, I might have my computer back and my Dragon Speech.

The reason I'm holding back my excitement and trying not to get my hopes up is because of the constant roller coaster this has been. Seriously, every time I thought I was taking that final step to get my computer fixed, something else happened. I don't know how many of my files Packman actually copied over, but even if I lost everything, I think I can retrieve most of it.

The greatest thing though, is that I get my Dragon Naturally Speaking back. I CAN WRITE AGAIN!! Now I'm struck with the fear that whatever spark of storytelling I had is gone.

I loaned out my Microsoft Word disks, But I should have that back Monday.

I'm just praying nothing else goes wrong with it. Hugs to you all! I'm still in a very happy mood. Packman actually seems willing to buy me a computer next quarter if all else fails. Now, I have to admit, he is slow in doing things. So there is hope I will be writing sooner or later! I had to give it up because mom needed so much care. I also gave up Beta reading because I just couldn't keep my mind focused.

In Louisville, we're still snowed in. I had about a week where I could not physically get out of the house because the front door was Snowed in and iced over and could not be opened. Thank God Mary has come to our rescue in so many ways. There are so many people I am so grateful to and for. I think I'm going to hug my dogs and give them kisses. I'm just so happy and I'm trying hard not to be. :-)

Wish me luck!

Go on, give in to the feeling :)

Here's wishing you lots of luck, all of it good, and I'm sure the spark will be fanned back into a blaze once you set your mind to it!

*hugs hugs hugs* Fingers crossed and hoping for good computer karma. If for whatever reason the Word disks don't materialize, I highly, highly recommend Open Office, which will allow you to work on and save as Word files. It's my primary word processor these days. Plus, free! And may the happy continue despite your best efforts ;D
