Just What I Needed

Heavy Load: A Ten on Tuesday Riff


Today . . . there is a song screaming in my head.

Here.  I'll share.


Because today is a Hard Day.  And I need a little George Harrison to keep me on track.

Give me hope.

Help me cope.

Ten Random Things on My Mind . . .


  1. My computer. . . my beloved, precious iMac . . . is going in for a replacement hard drive.  (Part of an Apple Recall.)  Today.*
  2. This makes me nervous. 
  3. Really nervous.
  4. Because, well.  I depend on my computer.  I need my computer.  (I'll just say it. . . )  I love my computer.
  5. And, really, there isn't anything wrong with my iMac.  No indication of any kind of hard drive malfunction at all.  But the deadline for replacement is drawing near.
  6. So I need to do it.
  7. Just in case.
  8. Brian (who is home for Spring Break) has been helping me get through my Separation Anxiety.  He reminded me that  it's much better to replace the hard drive . . . while the current hard drive is functional (and, thus, a back-up in itself).  It would be worse (oh so much worse) if my hard drive crashed.  (I can't bear the thought.)
  9. So.  To Grand Rapids and the Apple store we go. 
  10. It's a heavy load. . .


*I have no idea how long I'll be without my computer.  Maybe a day or two; maybe a week or more.  They wouldn't say at the Apple Store (although I'm pretty sure they have a good idea).  Also, no Apple Store in Kalamazoo, so there is a distance hassle as well.  I still have a Windows laptop that I use for work, so I won't lose total touch.  But. . . if you don't hear from me for awhile, you'll know why!

I would be so nervous as well! Good luck. Those darn computers - can't live with em, can't live without em!


Stay strong!


Oh my, you are entering Scary Town. Hope your precious is back to you in two shakes of a lamb's tail. I just love that image...

Ha ha I can relate. I get really antsy when IM computerless.......
good luck!


Computer problems stink. I hope you get it back straight away!


Need help with 'computer separation anxiety' knit, knit, knit


Umm...have you left yet? Maybe backup your whole computer before you take it in. I've lost everything and it is a nightmare!

I have to agree with Brian on the hard drive. I had one laptop die on me and it was awful. Since DH and I have been in the habit of upgrading the hard drives in our computers about every 18 months or so. It brings with it a certain piece of mind. Though I will confess that DH does the replacing so that is a bit easier to handle than turning it over to strangers. Best of luck with the separation!


Just look at ol' George up there. He'll take your mind off things. My but he was pretty.


Oh no! Not computer woes?! May your road there and back be a smooth one. I see more knitting and reading in your near future.


that is a VERY heavy load. hope all goes well. and quickly!
