What do YOU do with those little warning signs that come from your computer saying that you should update so and so.. and they are critical!?

Well, I've been ignoring them for a long time, so this morning I thought I'd be good and finally update them. Now, I know why I don't bother, because my computer was running just fine before I uploaded them! Every time I upload either a Windows or an HP Health check update my computer totally locks up. Yes, I'm beyond frustrated and had to restore my computer 4 times this morning. Aargh!

You wonder how knitting fits into all of this? Well, I really got a lot of knitting done while babysitting my computer (watching for the little arrow to stop moving actually). I find knitting so relaxing, so it was a great way to pass the time while still being able to keep an eye on my laptop and make some progress doing SOMETHING.

And now I'm going to quit the updates, because I'm no further ahead getting all those little warning signs off my computer but, wow, I sure got lots of knitting done!

Since it's Monday and President's Day, here's my Motivational Monday quote from Abraham Lincoln:

"Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today"

Oh, very wise advice which I think I will heed. I'm CANNOT get my computer fixed today, I think I'll leave it till tomorrow and more importantly find a computer guru to look at it!

Have a great Monday!

NOTE: As you can see, I like digital scrapbooking. I got this digital paper from


  1. Tackling computer issues should not take place on Mondays! Those two might not mix!

  2. I used to knit a couple years ago. Never really learnt much but I would love to start again. I hate when computers go weird.

  3. I've never knitted but I may take it up the next time my computer goes haywire! I had just installed a virus protection program and uuughhh did it mess everything up! I'm glad you got yours back online now!


Thanks so much for taking the time to write your thoughts. I treasure each and every comment and look forward to reading what you have to say!
