But… there are only twenty-four hours in the day. Something doesn’t add up here. And yet, in the midst of our mad attempts to complete the work, we both have found ourselves pounding our heads against the wall, determined to make things work.
So much in the past three weeks has centered around gaps in communication that have added to the stress of overcoming the temporary lack of resources since my computer crashed. As it turns out, computer juggling is not for the faint-hearted. As soon as one of us found our writing flow, we ran out of time and the other needed to begin their work.
Two days ago, when I anxiously awaited a phone call from the staff at Best Buy, I was hopeful that I would hear how they were able to fix my computer or at least put the old hard drive into a new machine of the same type, but alas, the old computer had already been scrapped. They did inform me, however, that because it was still under warranty, that I could get a brand new one. So, yesterday I brought home a new computer, which in fact is a vast improvement over the other one. So, I’m back in business. Just a few more steps to reinstall programs and reload my files from backup. And I’m ready to roll.
