Celebrate: Passwords (Uh-oh)



Sometimes I think I hit the "off" switch on my darn brain, and it's taking a long time to reboot. Among the things that are the most difficult are passwords. You know... those things you need in order to get onto practically any account on the net.  I got spoiled coz my PC had all those passwords in its memory and supplied them whenever I opened the corresponding page. But my PC crashed (for about the 5th time) and this time it wasn't reparable. Bummer. :(

On the good side, hubs bought me a new PC. Yay! But there are no passwords in its memory, and the sites I frequent don't recognize the new PC and don't supply my password. Ack! So, I've been trying to change my passwords to all the sites I frequent, and I write down the new ones in a notebook (which I specifically made for this current situation). 

But somehow I don't write the passwords down correctly or I capitalize something when I shouldn't -- and next time I visit I can't get in! Password-protected sites are very particular... 

At a glacial pace, I'm going to all the sites I used to frequent, and since the new PC won't supply the password, I have to hit the sites' "Change Password" button. Things don't get much simpler than that ... but it takes a lot of time. 

Also (like that's not enough), my mobile phone died. On the good side, hubs gave me an extra one he had. On the bad side, I cannot seem to remember how to use the different menus and the various commands. Yup, I'm pretty pitiful...

So send me your good luck vibes coz I need all I can get!!

Celebrate: Things are Getting Better!


I'm happy to report that my health is improving little by little. While I still spend most of my time zonked-out on meds (yuck!), and dumber than the proverbial tree stump, my abilities to learn and adapt are getting better, slowly but surely.

Look! I figured out how to add a new, smaller "schedule" pic to my sidebar that doesn't include the books I already pubbed! (I know... not very impressive, but figuring out the intricacies of my artwork-program and of Blogger are both difficult for me & I'm celebrating every little accomplishment 'coz that's what we do here on "Celebrate." Yay!)


Also, kudos to my resourceful hubs who downloads new pc games for me to play. Learning and playing them helps my brain improve. (And goodness knows I need as much of that as I can get! LOL)

Celebrate - New Laptop


Guess what??!! Hubs bought me a new laptop for New Year's (after my trusty old laptop -- which was "only" about 10 years old -- crashed! LOL) and I'm super grateful.


However, the old laptop had all my most-visited links on it -- put into the bar below the https address line (I can't remember what you call that thing...).


Sadly, putting links onto the new laptop's bar is only half my problem. My other problem is I have trouble remembering most of the links due to my illness (arteriosclerosis).


But happily, I'm actually getting better slowly but surely. My doctors told hubs and I that I might never regain my memory/thinking abilities. However, I've always been a determined person -- a VERY determined person! -- and little by little I am improving. Yay!

When someone comments on my blog, I always go to theirs to return a comment.  But I've been having trouble recently.  When I hit publish on some blogs, my comment doesn't appear.  Even if I try to comment using another browser (I have 4), I can't get anything to appear.  I think I'm accidentally tripping the SPAM guard. 

So please check your SPAM folder because I may be in there!  HELP get me out of SPAM!!
