I've had posts rolling around my brain all week but LIFE has conspired to keep them from flowing from my head, to fingers, to the keyboard and to my blog.
Wednesday: Computer had a 100% meltdown. Hello, India, what now? 4 hours later, the only conclusion was to wipe it clean and do a clean reinstall.
Thursday: The backup drive wasn't working as it was supposed to. It took the folders, the data in the folders is corrupt. Say bye-bye to my Quicken records, my Outlook contacts, saved e-mail and my entire book selling database on Sellers Assistant. Say hello to hours and hours of work re-creating everything. I now know what I'm going to be doing during my summer vacation.
Friday: I host the annual "Library Lock-In" at school. This is the ultimate Accelerated Reader achievement - the requirement for admittance is 300 points. Accelerated Reader is this computerized program that encourages reading. Children read books and take a short comprehension quiz and accumulate points. The program is very controversial but it's done wonders for our reading test scores. These days reading is all about the scores. This year 7 children made it. They had a great time, 2 never slept all night. Needless to say what little sleep I did get was not of the quality REM type.
Saturday: I send my sleepy guests home, tidy up the library and head out to a booksale. Come home and spend the rest of the day in a fuzzy fog.
Sunday: Spend most the day attempting to learn a new Auction Management Program - Auction Wizard. The program has a steep learning curve and a help section that isn't at all helpful. A storm blows through and we loose all electricity for 2 hours.
And here comes Monday heading down the pike whether I want it or not!
