What's New, Pussycat? Tainted Love All Around....

I'll tell ya' what's new....there's tainted love at my house....

My Precious (nickname for my laptop) has contracted an STD...(Stupid Technical Disease.)


Some Jerkity McJerk Jerk infected my laptop with a virus.  I am not a happy bee...This virus actually reconfigured my anti-virus software to pretend like it was still working...ugh...It also possibly infected my flash drives too....fabulous (insert sarcasm).....


I will be taking Miss Precious and her flash drives to the Computer Guru tomorrow...these guys know their STD's....I hope there is a cure!




I do realize the holidays are over and I really need to change out my header!  I haven't completely lost my mind...yet.....I will be sporting a new look as soon as my computer disease is healed:)


Oh, and here's the icing on the cupcake of my day....a huge mountain lion decided to come hang out in my yard this evening!  Yep, it completely freaked me out!  I haven't seen it in the last half hour so hopefully it has moved on!  Good times at the Smith house!





(This isn't my house, but it was taken in Tucson! This looks exactly like the one in my yard!)


Bee Back Soon!

I would pee my pants if I saw a mountain lion in my yard. OH MY GOSH.
You have my sympathy. My laptop is on its last legs, so we've been babying it along.
I guess the desktop saw that we were looking the other way so it died. OMG! Two geeks circling one lone computer... move your feet lose your seat. It's very sad (and fairly comical)

Hope it's better soon and that you and yours are doing well.

A mountain lion would be scary!!! I'm sorry about your virus. I was in that same situation last week and it was HORRIBLE! I feel your pain!
Kelly said…
Hope things work out for the best soon. Perhaps you should consider a Mac? I can't believe the mountain lion thing. That would really freak me out.
Sorry about the computer probs.

Yikes on that mountain lion!!
I think my husband has STD...LOL...

I hope Precious will be ok...can't wait to get you back full swing.

Oh my gosh! I can't believe that mountain lion was in your yard. I love wildlife but that is one thing I don't need to see in person.
Sorry about the computer. Hope it is better soon and doesn't cost you a fortune.

STD...I love that!

Huge kitty outside? I am not sure, the notion is so fantastic I might find it a tad cool. However, all the doors would be locked and all the kiddies would be located and handcuffed so as not to escape to pet the huge kitty...
Dapoppins said…
Are you the blogger who told about javalina's in her yard...we just read the book the three little javalina's (spelled right?) and thought of how you said they were not very cute. Maybe the Big Kitty was looking for some left over little piggies?
LadyStyx said…
Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to go double check my settings because I think I have it so they autopost.
Robyn Jones said…
HA! You said STD....
(I know....real mature...:)
mommaof4wife2r said…
i guess that's why you need protection...ok, you know i needed to say that. booo though.
Jenners said…
Part of me thinks "Cool.. mountain lion." The other part of me thinks "Yikes, mountain lion."

I turned off anon comments because of way too many spam comments. Good luck getting fixed up.
LT said…
So sorry to hear about your laptop, hope you are up and running soon! Scary about the Mountain Lion, we don't usually have those wandering into town thank goodness!
Mama Zen said…
I hope that they can heal your computer. And, thanks for the comment tip!
Oh My Goddess said…
So how are you going to get out of your house with My Precious while that WILD animal is lurking?

Guess the Geek Squad would not do a housecall...because they're Geeks not Hugh Jackman's.
Annie said…
Crap! Aren't you having a week!
I feel your pain..as my computer was ill with an STD for weeks!! a real pain! that mountain lion is wild..I would have fainted.
good luck Dawn

I've been having issues too! I opened a "fake" email from DHL NOT and it took over my computer and made my anti-virus software stop working. I think I fixed it, but I'm terrified it's still lurking in the background. Why do people go out of their way to screw other people?
Don't you just hate STD's....hee hee.

"Holy Cat"...I mean holy poooo, I can not believe that cat was in your back yard!
A Mountain Lion???? OH MY WORD!!! How scary!

Holy crap! A mountain lion?! I guess it's a good thing that it's normally too hot for your kids to play outside?! Wow.

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
