BACK! Oh happy day!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Home sweet spark home at last! I haven't been able to log on for exactly 2 weeks... i feel like it was 2 months tho!! I've been suffering so bad... no computer really really sucks.

I was soooo mad too because my mother's boyfriend had broke his computer. So my mom talked me into letting him use mine during the day for work. I even asked her to warn him that it didn't run too well because of really limited memory on it, so not to download stuff. What does he do? Decides he doesn't like the Vista operating system (which neither did I really but it's what was on it so it is what it is) so he tries to download an random copy of XP!?

So of course the computer crashes.. and then Vista nor the 1/2 of XP he downloaded would load and poor Nicole is left with no computer for what seemed like an eternity.

But today I got it back from the repair shop and it is a wonderful day! Maybe I'll be a lil less cranky around home. lol So whats new?

I was doing really well... ran my 5K on the 9th. Shaved over 4 min off the 1st time I did it. But then sun the 11th I tried to do my long 6 mi and kinda fell flat on my face so to speak. I think it kinda derailed me. On top of not coming anywhere close to be able to jog that kind of distance yet I had a bathroom incident, or near incident anyway. Luckily I did divert it and made it safely to a restroom. LOL I ended up walking like 8 miles cuz once I was as far as I was.. the nearest bathroom was closer to keep goin further. lol

But the attempted distance did kinda kill my spirit and now for the last week I've done nothing and really been eatting quite terribly. Hopefully getting my computer back, being able to get back involved and in the swing of things I'll be able to get right back to it. I just need to realize 1 week is not the end of the world and get back to my schedule. Anyway... missed you all! I'll be tryin to do all my catching up as fast as I can.

(Hugs),
Nicole

    Somehow I missed this blog! I have been meaning to check in with you since it's been a while. Sorry to hear about your running. I hope you've gotten back on track, though. I have been there with the bathroom issues. SUCKY!

    I lost track of my calories eaten on Sunday because I had been working on several projects around the house, getting ready for the big rummage sale, and 2 daughters were lounging around watching me work while my DH interrupted me repeatedly, asking that I "find" things for him. So, I let my anger take over my decisions for a couple of hours. So, I understand how anger can lead to temporary insanity.

    We'll get better at handling these negative emotions, and we'll be fine.

    I missed you. I'm glad your computer is OK. Looking back on your near incident with the bathroom is probably much more amusing now than experiencing at the time. Great job at the 5K on the 9th.

    Sorry to hear about the computer issues. He probably wouldn't have liked it if someone did that to his computer without his permission. I agree with EVIE13 - it was disrespectful. Anyway, glad you got the computer back. I don't care for Vista either but it's what was on the computer when I bought it and I've learned to work with it.

    Congrats on the 5K! Glad to see that you're back!!

    Oh I hate when I am in a 5K and have to go to the bathroom! I swear sometimes I think we should all wear depends just for that reason! ROFL! Congrats on getting the computer back and to the 5K!

    Sorry about your computer! But I'm glad you have it back now. I don't know if I could survive 2 weeks sans computer...it would definitely feel like much longer for sure. That was so rude of him to do that...you don't download stuff on other people's computers without their permission. It's so disrepectful. Windows makes it really hard for me not to hate Vista, but I'm managing so far. Lol!

    Congrats on the second 5k, that's awesome! Don't worry about the 6 miles. You had just done a 5k. It's okay if it wasn't fabulous, you're not where you want to be yet. But you're totally on the path! ^_^ I can't wait to hear about the next race you're in and your continuing progress. It's all about the journey, right. ^_^
