Well I was up at the crack of dawn and decided to take a look at the blessed accounting program. Ya see - they sent me an update that i had to use to update my program from 2011 to 2012 .... W had been asking me if I had done it yet......... no I hadn't - my brain has been too stuffed up to even consider looking at the blankety blank blank accounting program.
But today is the last day of 2011 - so I figured I had better upgrade. Now - in my experience - limited as it is - when I upgrade any program - the computer (smart thing that it is ) just upgrades and drags all my information along with it ...............
Did this blankety blank blank program do that??? noooooooooooooo not even close.
It took 2 hours to run the upgrade - and then the damn thing asks me if I want to open an existing file OR open a new business. WTF???!!! It didn't even suggest - BEFORE the upgrade that I might want to back up the program.......... and the program does NOT suggest you back up until you have used it 4 times.......... I hadn't used it 4 times since the bookkeeping expert who I hired to bail out my mess was here.
So that means - that all the work I did manage to do in December is lost.......... and I have to start over... Ask me if I am a happy camper... go on I dare you !!!
While the blankety blank blank program was running yet another update - which it said could take from 1 hour to 5 hours (yes I said FIVE hours!!) I decided to go make the gingerbread cheese cake I promised W. I figured I could at least do that - semi successfully.
So it is now in the oven cooking - I wish I could smell it - or even taste it - but I can't. I have decided the pineapple meatballs for tomorrow will taste a whole lot better if they sit in the sauce for 24 hours so I am off to make them... then grab a quick shower before W shows up and I get to cook the roast beast.......... which I have discovered is enough to feed a bloody army !!! What was I thinking when I bought it???!!!
Hope you all have a safe and fun New Year's Eve............. See you all in 2012.
