Houston, we have a problem...

Oh, faithful followers....I think that time may have finally arrived.  That time where I have to bite the bullet and get a new computer.  This weekend, after I got home from a week at the shore, I restarted my computer only to find a black screen of death.  Some of you may be familiar with the blue screen of death (this is the story of my life at work -- I'm on a first name basis with the help desk.  They may actually have to draw straws to decide who has to deal with my crazy computer explosions this go-around...but I digress...), but the black screen of death doesn't appear to be as threatening.  All it told me was that my keyboard wasn't connected/attached/recognized/up-to-date with the latest fashions/whatever.  Then it tells me to hit F1 to continue. 

Are you following this??  My black screen of death told me that my keyboard isn't working, yet it instructs me to hit F1.

Figuring I have nothing to lose, I hit F1.  Sure enough, my computer continues starting up.

Freaking technology.

So, my computer starts up, and I start perusing some blog posts, and get ready to post a comment on one of them.  But, alas, my keyboard, just as the black screen of death told me, does not work.  Yet, the function keys work (e.g. F1). 


Needless to say, I'm having a tough time getting new posts onto my site.  I will be away again for the rest of the week, so please bear with me as I try and get new pictures and updates posted.

Also, a very warm welcome to all my new followers!  I hope you can find inspiration in these many crazy rantings that I have here ;-)  I apologize for not acknowledging you all as you become faithful followers, but rest assured I'm truly touched that you all find some inspiration here.  I love being able to share my love of counted cross stitch, and hope that I can share that love and passion through this media outlet.  I know I've found many ideas and inspiration for so many things through crafting/stitching blogs, and I'm thankful for all these fabulously creative people out there who are willing to share their knowledge and inspiration. 

I'm off -- I have a long day in the office ahead of me (I had 200 new emails from being out only a week...), since I have to prepare to head out for work travel tomorrow afternoon.

Do something creative today!

I am not a fan of technology. Don't understand it and don't want to.
Have fun with all your emails.

"Hit F1"? That's right up there with the email my company sends out to tell us our email system is down...
Safe travels.
