I've Been Pretty Busy Catching Up but Not Here, unfortunately

I've been busy as usual the past several weeks. I had computer issues which you may have read about already, and I found a young man that knows a lot about fixing computers. He cleaned out my computer, cleared out viruses and sold me a new hard drive as my other one was experiencing some odd-ball glitches.

Since getting my computer back, I've been working on restoring some of the many files that were misplaced. At first I worked toward finding another QuickbooksPro CD. I thought my previous one was from 2001, but after ordering that and installing it, I found it wasn't compatible after all. I then found how to get it right from the manufacturer's site since I had previously registered the product.

More recently, I've been trying to figure out my printer. My husband has a wi-fi printer near his computer that my computer recognized enough to print a paper, but not enough for any other program to recognize or use. I think it was missing the necessary driver, and I wasn't able to download or install it from the manufacturer for some reason. I tried twice.

Today, I took my corded printer to Cartridge World to get it checked out. They discovered right away that one of the ink cartridges, electronics wasn't working any more. After checking everything over, that was the only thing wrong with it which surprises me because I quit using it when it wouldn't work, several months ago. Today, I have it hooked back up and it's now working fine.

Now I need to catch up by printing a copy of my employee's pay stubs from the past month. Once that is completed I need to work on reconciling the business account which is past due. I was without my computer only three days, but it took two weeks to re-install my Quickbooks program and another week to get the printer going.

Yikes! I sometimes feel like I'll never catch up. Do you ever feel the same way?

I have many more days of feeling as if I didn't accomplish all my goals than days I feel satisfied with my efforts and output.

I think that is common in that we usually remember more the things left to do than the other way around.

RFLOL, it is not just a feeling with me, I know I will never catch up. Oh, my! Did I really say that? Someday I will catch up. Just not anytime soon.

I hate having computer issues. I had a Dell for several years and it failed on me so I hurriedly bought an HP from QVC. Got a great deal. And had it for about four months of heaven before it went South. Trying to get help from HP was like pulling teeth. I mean literally. Long story but I will never go there again and am happy with my new Dell. I have felt like I will not catch up for a long time. I hope you are well on your way to catching up and are near where you need to be.
