I'm baaack. My computer went down last Thursday and I've been without connection to blog, email, facebook, the internet. My email box showed me that I had 270 emails in my box, but wouldn't let me access them. How frustrating is that?! I ran a virus scan and found no viruses. After trying everything I could think of, I finally gave in and reformatted my whole computer after transferring every picture, document, and music files to an external hard drive. It fixed NOTHING! I had to try to get my teenage son to let me borrow his computer - IF he was ever not using it, which of course meant I was out of luck. Then it happened... Nick's computer went down too. Sigh of relief. This meant it was not me. Thankfully Nick put his Engineering skills to work and figured out that it was the router. He reset the router to original factory settings and manipulated it somehow and we were both up and running.
Since I already lost all my programs, I decided it was finally the opportunity to break free of Windows Vista and I went and bought Windows 7. I'm still reloading all my programs that I use and transferring all my documents, pictures and everything back to my computer, but it feels like spring cleaning and it's all good. In the meantime, I made these turtle cookies just because I wanted to. I had this picture in my mind of turtles with pink shells and finally had a chance to play with them.
