Frustrating Week

I think that covers what the week has been like.

My major frustration has been with James & his total inability to be attentive in class. I don't know if he's bored, tired, being led astray by other boys or what, but it is really starting to annoy & worry me. I am wondereing if I should take him to the doctor but the strange thing is that he can sit down & concentrate on doing something when it suits him. He drew this picture of me on Friday night.



The other frustration has been my computer. Ever since we had it fixed it has been giving me strange messages. Then last week I was trying to listen to music, on my computer, & use PSE4 at the same time & I got a blue screen saying something along the lines of major technical fault so I've closed down. As you know I have ScrapCamp this coming weekend so I have a lot of layouts sitting just needing photos, so I thought I would print them off & the regular sized ones I would send out to DigitalMax for printing. Well on Saturday I tried to upload my regular sized photos to Digital Max only to find out DigitalMax wasn't working. OK I thought I would print them off myself at home. Opened up PSE4 & pressed print only to have blue screen messages again. In the end I got so frustrated that I called Scott & he rang the Dell helpdesk which wasn't really all that helpful at all. They told us to run some diagnostics & if it came back clean then it was a software issue & we would have to clean out the hard drive & start all over again. Of course the diagnostics came back clean. We decided we would get the machine to go back to before the first major problem happened. Only problem is that there was nothing for it to go back to. We left it for a night & then what do you know, yesterday I was able to print my photos off just fine in PSE4. I should be pleased, & I made sure I have them all printed out, but the question keeps coming to me, why? Why did the computer not do this on Saturday when I first asked it to. Could the diagnostics changed something?
Well thankfully it's the start of a new week, I'm hoping it won't be as frustrating & at least I know the weekend will be wonderful.
Have a good week everyone.

Well you seem to have a really charming smile Katrina. So maybe you weren't a grumpy as you thought.
