My Current Dilemma, Part 2

I'm having problems with my computer's picture software - so no pics until I figure it out. (I think what is happening is that my hard-drive is so chockablock full that I'm unable to see thumbnail pictures and instead have to individually click on pictures by file name (such as DSC5847, DSC5848 and so on). And doing that is a major pain.

I love my new freezer. Now I am glad the old one broke. But I had to unload my entire shelving unit full of stockpiled pantry items - to move the shelf - so the new freezer would fit. Hypothetically speaking (of course), it's normal to have 8 cans of sweetened condensed milk, right?

My Current Dilemma

I've been so busy the last few weeks with school starting up, shopping, cleaning up from Hurricane Irene, shopping, exercising (yes - I've used my treadmill more over the past 2 weeks than I have the past 10 years (I signed up to go to my HS reunion next month!!!) and doing even more shopping that I haven't posted much lately. But now, here is my current dilemma:

Remember my organized chaos picture from a few years ago? Click here for a reminder. Long story short - the freezer has died. It is 24" wide and fits nicely into its current spot. New freezers are all 28" wide and won't fit into that spot. We bought a new freezer today. Needless to say, I have some re-organizing I need to do.

It wasn't worth to get our old freezer fixed. We bought it new around 1993 or so and it wasn't frost-free. So over time, ice would build up and then it would have to be defrosted. But now - the new freezer which I got a great deal on from Sears (had a 25% off coupon plus they threw in an extra 5% off). With tax, it came out to less than $400 plus it has all the bells & whistles. Frost free - now that was worth it in itself!, digital temperature control, interior light - none of which our old freezer had.

But now I just have a bit of work to do to get it to fit in the old freezer's same spot. Stay tuned for an updated "organized chaos" photo.

Don't worry, Atlantic City pics are still on their way. I haven't forgotten.

How the hell

How the hell can this be September and me not have a single blog post to show for it??

My computer is dead. It better just be temporarily dead since I have years of pictures stored on it. I am using a laptop now - so I don't have access to pictures. I know you are waiting patiently to see my latest vacation pics. I am waiting to receive a new power supply for my computer.

I also have years of old (mostly unanswered - my bad) emails stored on my computer since I use Microsoft Outlook for my main comcast email account. So, if you emailed me within the past month or so and haven't heard back, you probably won't hear from me in a while. I can read current email thru the comcast website (but past emails are on my harddrive). I know I promised one tv producer guy I would do something (make a short video) and that has been put on hold until I get my regular computer working.

I have an update to the weird looking cat I saw in my yard a few weeks ago. Of course I am not 100% sure if it was the same weird cat or not. But if not, it was a twin. Rocky wasn't feeling good so the nice man at Animal Control took him away. He said he was going to a wonderful place called rainbow bridge where he'd get to play with other weird looking cats just like him. So I am happy about that. I will show more pictures of Rocky later when I get my computer fixed.
