Can't sleep . . . .


I have been trying to post my previous post "Stormy day" for quite some time and it won't post. When I view it in edit post it appears it has posted but it hasn't. Maybe it will later? This may not post! We will see . . . . . .

I can't sleep and it is driving me crazy! I just want to sleep at night! I have been on vacation from work for a week now and haven't been able to sleep at night yet. I have to much to do to sleep during the day today! Maybe that will get me back on track . . . . . . we will see!

Blogger challenge on 2 peas today is "How are you different compare from 10 years ago?"

10 years ago was a long time ago when I think back. In 1996, I was in LPN school and now I am in BSN school. I am still in school so that hasn't changed! I did take a 3 1/2 year break from my RN to BSN. I was living at home in 1996 and I own my own home now. I feel like I have more responsibilites and I am more independent. I am able to travel to more exciting places such as foreign countries. My fun pack then was driving to Tulsa, OK! My travels now normally require an airplane. I worked night shift 10 years ago and I currently work night shift now. I did work 3-11 for 4 1/2 years before going back to night shift. Hmmm . . . . . I am sure there is more but that is all that can come to my mind currently.

I have been frustrated with my compaq laptop (the older one) today. Certain things just hasn't worked right since I got it back from the touchpad mouse being repaired. I had a talk with Circuit City today regarding some of the issues and I have two options. Option #1 is to have them do a diagnostic and have it for two days to see what the problem is. This is covered under my service plan. Option #2 is to do a system restore and only be out for one day. I have a feeling that the system restore is my best bet as I keep getting error messages and it freezes up on me. I am to bring my CD's in today as when we were talking about it he seems to think that I might be using the wrong CD so I would rather restore it right the first time! That means I am loading all my programs again. I am going to be a pro at this! My main reason for doing this is I can't get my flash drive, wireless card, web cam, wireless mouse to be recognized by just installing the software. I have to go to the control panel and find the device with a yellow question mark and then click find drivers and it might work. It has worked with everything but my jumpdrive with the info I need! I got the idea today to install quicken to my desktop to see if it would work there even though it is super slow and runs Windows 98 but I had the same problem with my jumpdrive being recognized. The things that make you go hmmmmm . . . . . . .

I need to get up in 4 hours so I better go try this sleep thing again. Hopefully it works this time!

Hope you got some sleep in but I can understand with your nursing schedule it must take a bit of time adjustment and then to go back, you will need another time adjustment! Good luck with the computer woes too, hope it all works out.
