Wish I had a computer guru !!!

Not quite six o’clock in the morning and I’ve been up for hours!! I have two computers that are causing problems. I was computer “chatting” with a McAfee technician for more than one hour (and he had remote control). Last week I purchased “Total Protection” from McAfee–and it isn’t working!! It still isn’t working and my next experience will be with Microsoft to see if they can diagnose the problem and supply the needed updates. I’m told my problems stem from “updates” that have “failed” to install. Once problems are solved on this computer (my every day computer), I’ll try to gain access to the Dell computer (used for the family history scanning project that was interrupted by the disruptive move from the CARE Center).

I have “too much” on my mind and I cannot get a good night’s sleep. So-o-o-o many projects: The cargo trailer still has boxes of family history to scan (so I can discard); many things to sort, and haul donations to Habitat for Humanity resale store. The yard is a full-time job (which I love) but I should be “doing” other things. “Clutter” inside my trailer home is a frustration. All these on my mind–and I can’t get a full night of sleep. As mentioned in an earlier blog, I’ve tried various over-the-counter sleep aids and they have limited benefit. ZzzQuill helped (best) but last night it only provided four hours of sleep (ten PM until two AM). I wanted to go back to sleep but was wide awake so I tackled the computer problem. Usually, I just continue to lay in bed wishing I could go back to sleep. This morning I didn’t want to “waste time” “wishing I could go back to sleep.”  Lack of sleep obviously contributes to fatigue; I’m always so-o-o-o tired. I need a gardener in addition to a computer guru? It’s really tough getting old! My brain says “do” but the body says “don’t.” (Know what I mean?)

Losing my vision; new glasses are so strong it makes me feel off-balance. The second pair–for the computer–is helpful but I still need a magnifying glass. This morning, with McAfee technician, the “chat” was in tiny print so I was using computer glasses AND magnifying glass.

I don’t want to end on a negative note. I’m so grateful for my eyesight, and reasonably good health. I appreciate my trailer home parked under a roof, with wonderful shade trees in the yard. I’m blessed!!
