I know, I know... it's been forever since I've written anything. And this may be full of typos. You see, I can't figure out how to adjust things and the screen I see this on is awfully dark. I'm looking at red type on a black background... with a dark screen... hell! can't see the words at all! And someone just pm-d me and made me lose my place in that sentence. I hope it made sense. The computer thing never did work out. I'm hoping I can get a new computer when hubby gets his tax return in the spring. for now I'm using the same dinosaur he uses. And us sharing a computer is NOT a pleasant experience! Just thought I'd let anyone who still drifts in know why I haven't written.

I lubs me some Toby Keith!
Well, I got my computer back, but I have bigger news... tonight (last night, by now) was the Toby Keith concert! We didn't get there in time to see Scotty Emerick open, but we did see Terri Clark before Toby Keith came on. Of course, they followed the rule of traveling ... mention the town and the local sports team whenever possible. LOL! Terri Clark sang, "I wanna do it ... See Paris in the fall... Watch the Astros play ball..." (instead of "the Yankees") and Toby claimed that instead of being a roughneck, "I'm a 'Stros fan... my daddy was a 'Stros fan, too." He also put the grandma in "I Wanna Talk About Me" in Pasadena instead of Munci, Alabama. And, of course, the crowd went wild whenever they did any of this, or mentioned Houston. We had lawn seats, and most of the people out there were pretty tame. The only time they got *really* excited was when Toby asked how everybody on "the hill" was doing... 'cause that was us. It seemed like most of them were drinking, and that seemed to sedate people instead of riling them up. It was a really great concert, but I'm tired, so I'm cutting this kind of short. Just wanted to blog it, since I blogged about getting the tickets and everything. :)

My computer is having some rather serious problems... one of them being that it won't start. So I'm on hubby's computer, and one of its problems is a dark screen, so I can't proofread what I'm typing here. Forgive me if this doesn't make sense in some places. Somehow, when I started my blog, I ended up with red type on a black background when I'm typing things in, but it's never been a problem so I left it alone. NOw I can't see anytrhing I'm doing. *Sigh* Oh well... I'm not nearly as upset about that as I am my computer. It won't come on, the USB ports are screwed. At least it's still under warranty, so I can get this stuff fixed without it costing. But I don't know how long I'll be without my computer. We're waiting on a box they're sending for us to ship it in, then they say they should have it for about 10 business days. I don't know if I really believe that though. I just want it fixed. :( I probably won't be posting anymore until it is... not unless something REALLY big happens!

I don't know how the "computer maintainence" post showed up for everyone else who sees this, but I just see one paragraph when I look at my blog. Bleh! I actually typed three seperate paragraphs. And it shows that when I go in to edit it, so there's nothing to edit! I don't know if this is because I'm using Firefox, or what. So if I suddenly seem to have run-on paragraphs that jump from topic to topic, is snot my fault. :P

Well, I installed Mozilla Firefox today. At first, it worked like a charm, but now it seems a bit slow. On the other hand, that could just be because I've been up for a long time and I'm getting impatient. I also installed Ad-Aware 6 and it caught a LOT of problems on my computer! I'm getting hubby to install it on his computer, too.
Yahoo! Messenger keeps giving me trouble. I think it's just the new version of Yahoo! acting up because it happens when I'm in chat... things got so bad tonight that even YahELite was having trouble going through the servers to connect. That's bad when you change clients and the problems follow you. But at least it means the problem isn't me.
Been spending a lot of time in chat. Seems like everyone has a LJ to update, but I'm sticking with blogdrive. I like it here. :) I've kind of made a home for myself, and I like getting tagged on my tagboard. It's simple, but it's become comfortable for me. I was originally supposed to use this blog for my business... for updates... but it ended up becoming personal ramblings. Oh well. It's my home now.

I really need to write more. All my life, I've wanted to practice the art of putting fantstic tales down to be remembered for ages to come. But I just don't write as often as I should, and now I can't find any stories inside of me. Oh, I can find a ton of jokes. Did I tell you the one about the little boy who wanted a bicycle for Christmas? Oh, I'll tell it later. Besides, my mom might be reading and she's been hearing that joke for over 15 years. But the point is, I'm dismayed that I can't find a story inside of me to tell anymore. I used to write short stories all the time. Even the poems are gone now. I'm going through a severe dry spell when I really want to write. I even recieved an unexpected compliment about my writing that was very encouraging... but it doesn't give me a story.

One of my best friends is moving away soon, so we had a day together today. We baked cookies and played video games. :) I don't know how many more days like this we'll have together. *Sigh* There were so many things I wanted us to do together, and now I just don't know if we'll get to. At least with the internet we can keep up with each other. It won't be like when people used to move away and I never heard from them again. But it's still depressing for me.
I'm still adjusting to my new meds. Just when I was getting used to it, it's time to move up to the full dose! And the heat isn't helping me any. It's brutally hot here, even inside. Every summer I worry that we'll be one of those families that has a fire from a window unit or that one of our animals will die from the heat. Sometimes it's enough to make me want to move somewhere not so hot, but then I'd worry about the cold winters.
I know I need to update my AC blog, but I'm waiting for the heat to die down and this medicine to stop kicking me so bad so I'll feel like playing (or doing much of anything) again.

I'm having trouble with my browser, so I can't even swear this is going to post. I wrote out an entry yesterday and it didn't post.
My friend helped me with HM, but I still have the most pathetic farm probably in the history of the game.
My medicine is keeping me tired and making me not want to eat.
The only thing that DOES work is the cat's plaumbing! She had three kittens the other day. That gets me into a big rant I don't feel like going into right now about why this should have been taken care of before. Suffice it to say, I am NOT happy about the kittens.
Just in case this doesn't post, I don't feel like writing a lot. Hell, even if it does post, the new meds are kinda making me not want to write. Can't wait until the "adjustment phase" is over.

I think this new medicine is kickin' my butt... I feel kind of sluggish all the time. Finally got the new Yahoo!Messenger, so now I have the little avatar and everything. Went and spent six bucks tonight to rent "Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life", so I have it until Thuirsday and now I remember why I quit playing last time we rented it. I got stuck. Oh well... I'm kind of hoping a friend who's addicted to the game can help me out. I get stuck playing the simplest games. I love video games, but I am NOT what you'd call a gamer.
