busy day........... hear me groan?

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.

That damn Dawn gets around. More than a bit promiscuous if you ask me. I have to admit I've gone to bed at her crack, but that waking up ... not my thing.

Happy Freakin' New Year! Ain't you glad we got that one out of the way?

I feel your pain about losing data. several years ago, I neglected to back up master's thesis draft and thought I had lost the data. Hubby was able to restore the entire system to a previous date and my paper was there. Maybe a computer 'expert' can help you. Wishing you a fast retrival.
Happy New Year and have some fun.
