Nearly total system failure

I thought while I have a good connection, I would come and give you an evening update. I got LOTS of beads made today! I don't know how many sets they are going to turn into... that will have to wait until morning when the kiln is ready. I finished a couple of orders, worked on some "Berry Wine" beads for my class in 2 weeks and made lilac inspired sets.

For now the computer is working so-so. We are still going computer shopping this weekend. The thing is definately on its way out. So we are taking preemptive action. We are getting a new one while this is halfworking so we don't lose everything. I backed up all our family photos and files. All the jewelry business spread sheets and photos too. Hopefully it will be a smooth transition. Only one thing... if you voted yesterday and today... don't worry... I GOT YOUR VOTES, but I am not sending my usual response to you. Starting tomorrow I will send the note when I get it butt with out the computer there were just too many to respond to each one. Thanks for understanding!

The boys had a great baseball game tonight. Unfortuately about an hour in it started to pour! Coach didn't stop though, no we played/watched in the pouring rain. I was soaked when I got home. But Ron had started a batch of chicken chili before we left so we had a nice warm meal to come home to. It was so yummy!

OH.... as I was writing this... I just won some beads on EBAY!!! EEKKKKKK!!!! I am so excited. You know I was telling you about? I just won a set of her handpainted ceramic beads. AREN"T THEY PRETTY!?! I wonder what I will make with them? Hmmmm. I am thinking they will need some matching lampwork!

See ya for the afternoon BeadBox update!

This update is going to be short... I don't know how much longer my computer is goign to last... yesterday, out of the blue, the keyboard stopped responding, then suddenly the mouse. It took me 3 hours to get the mouse and keyboard to come back then the modum failed. Ron worked on things for a while last night and got the computer to connect once before dying again. He just got it to connect again this morning but... the thing is definately dying! I will be trying to back up files today after making beads.

OH YEAH! I am going to be making beads today, but I have to go to the city and get me fuel tank refilled. I will probably do a late afternoon beadbox update while at me Mom's tomorrow. I downloaded all my site software to her computer so I can do updates from there as well. I have all your orders written down... I can see your emails... I just can't respond at the moment, so hang in there. Ron isn't one of those "take it to the repair place" kinda guys so we will be computer shopping this weekend!

I will check in again soon!
