Never gonna break my faith

Ahhh! I don’t know what to do (again). My monitor on my laptop is broken. My dog has knocked down my laptop 3 times and I knocked it down the most recent time. Uh-oh. The last time I backed up my hard drive on my external drive was April 12, 2012. (I have backed up various files in various places since then but no, not ALL my files are backed up). Update: I have found a way to attach an extra monitor so I can use that to access everything on my laptop. But this isn’t going to work long term. However, I will use it to back up all my files. After I move the files, then I will just get a new laptop?? I’ve had this HP Probook for 3 years. It is a little slow at times but everything but the screen works.

Hmmm. I would have to wait until I get my tax refund before I buy a new laptop. I don’t have the money now. I wouldn’t get anything expensive (cause I can’t). I’m looking at the Dell Inspirion laptop. I can get it for $499. Btw, I hate Windows 8.1 :/ I’m used to Windows 7 and I like it.

Or should I just see if I can get my laptop fixed? At this point, the cheapest thing is to use my work monitor to get to my laptop’s files. I’m so glad the hard drive isn’t broken! I really like my laptop. I don’t want to get a new one…especially one that isn’t as good as the ProBook. 😦

Sigh. I will be backing up my files all week.  It is mostly music. I have 8,000+ songs.


I weigh 142 pounds….again. I’m not trying to maintain. I want to lose! See how I said “want to” lose? I’m not really trying. I’m pretty sure I’m going to cancel my paid gym membership. Every time I think that, I think of what I could be doing there. Water aerobics, yoga, spin etc. But I’m not doing those things right now. I can cancel in May. I’ll make a decision soon. I went to the free gym on Easter Sunday and guess what? I was the only person there. I used the weight machines for the first time in a long time and I walked a mile and a half on the treadmill. 35 minutes in the gym all by myself. Score! 😉


I’m having dog issues. Or my dog has issues. Both of us have issues. I feel like he needs to be in therapy. Does he know how rare it is to have your human companion around 95% of the time? Hello? I’m almost always home. Most people leave to go to work (I work at home) OR they have like, lives.

He doesn’t get it. He is better when I do leave the house. I can’t hear him screaming/barking from my car. But it is still a pain to leave him. I think we spend too much time together. It is as simple as that. And I’m planning on taking him to the cabin next month? Does this make sense? I feel bad even thinking about leaving him for 3 nights.

How many people have this problem? I need to Bing (AKA google) “spend too much time with my dog/cat”. I just did and what I found wasn’t that comforting. lol.
