As I said to my husband today in reference to our indispensably talented daughter, "Aren't you glad we had her?"
Truly, this latest transfer from our local server over to Google's servers (a necessary change, we had no choice) has been a big, fat, ol' pain in the patoot that Papa Pea and I could never have handled on our own. We could have called in someone from one of the local computer businesses (but I know they are all busier than they want to be), but having Chicken Mama do it was considerably cheaper (!) and she set things up just exactly as her fuddy-duddy, set-in-their-ways parents wanted it.
We are so, so appreciative of the time she's given us since this is a particularly busy week for her in more ways than I'll relate here.
She manages and cleans a rental cabin for a couple who live in Minneapolis and, wouldn't ya know, this is the week they've blocked out guests so dear daughter could get some inside painting done. And construct a safety railing in a loft they are turning into another sleeping area.
Then night before last she was called out before midnight to hurry to special friends' house to stay with their two little boys while the mom and dad headed out on the 2-1/2 hour drive to the big city to give birth!
As if Chicken Mama didn't have her hands full enough without this unexpected computer kafuffle. She just left a few minutes ago and I do believe I'm back in business. Papa Pea, too. She was even able to coax his old, old, old Windows XP into accepting the changes. I suspect she had to use some black magic on that one.
Now for me to catch up. I'm pooped tonight but plan on getting up early tomorrow morning and getting at it as soon as I can. Toodles until then.
a few good things
