A comedy of errors

I usually don't post twice on one day but, thought I would mention my day.

I had an idea to make shake and Bake chicken. I had no chicken or Shake and Bake so had to go to the store. I NEVER leave the house any more without a list. Even WITH a list, I can be assured of missing something. Chicken didn't make the list and Shake and Bake did not make the list. I thought I was done shopping and then remembered the chicken. Close call leaving the store without it. Proceeded to the wrong end of the store to GET the chicken and ended up at the deli. Oh yeah! Turkey for Steve's lunch! Geesh! Went back to get the chicken and left the store without the Shake and Bake. Rachel had to be at work at 12:00 and figured I'd stop at BJ's and pick some up. Couldn't find it. Went BACK to Shop Rite were I had been earlier, and picked up the Shake and Bake. it was 12:30pm by the time I got back home and thought, no big deal. By the time Doug gets up, he's not ready to eat right away anyway. I turned the oven on to preheat while I coated the chicken. 5 mins later, I must have hit the stop button instead of the temp button and shut the oven off. It was not preheating at all. LOL I got the oven turned on and heated and ended up eating at 1:30pm. Still no big deal, Doug doesn't have to leave for work until 3:00.

In the midst of all of this, I had told him about the Trojan virus I had in my laptop and he was dealing with that. Come to find out, it will not let us do a system restore. I sure hope Doug doesn't have to reformat the hard drive. I will have to find a way of doing a back up and saving all of my info or I could lose everything. There are some links I have not used in a long while but, I would hate to lose them anyway. We will see what tonight brings. He said he will look at it when he gets home tonight.

I really and truly try very hard, not to do anything brain or thinking related on my 1st day off. Especially on a 4 day weekend. It just never works out. Sometimes in a case like this, I plan on something very easy or order out.

This is how my day went until 3pm. I fell asleep around 4pm. Just shut down. lol

Time to feed the pets again. :o)

Until next time...

Why won't it let you do a restore? Is it a PC or a Mac? Mine would not let me restore any date except as it was originally, like out the box. Definitely save that data! You should do that anyway. Always should backup important stuff.

With your links if you can't restore maybe you can copy them then paste to a file and print them out. It is a lot of work but at least you will have them to re enter when you are ready. This stuff is so messed up.

I am so sorry to hear that you are having computer trouble. I pray that everything goes well and that you do not lose any of your information.

As for your shopping trip, it sounds so familiar, LOL I often forget what I went to get in the first place and end up going back again.

*hugs and love*
