Tuesday my computer was weird, Wednesday it died. Mac tried a number of things on it to no avail. I ordered a new one yesterday. We've always had Macs and the new one will be too, but I have to say that if the last one had been my first Mac it would have been my last one. It was always doing weird things and too, too often I would get what I call the spinning ball of death, a brightly colored ball that would just spin instead of what I wanted it to do and I would end up having to force quit whatever program I was running. Hopefully the new one will be less haunted. In the meantime I'm using and old computer of Mac's, my Mac, not the company, and all the programs are really old so wherever I go on it, it complains and tells me to download a newer version--that's not going to happen. The new computer should be here tomorrow.
Yesterday they showed up to put our new pool in, became concerned because it had decking and trellises around it even though we had told the pool company, they were also concerned that they couldn't get their equipment into the backyard--they could. They said it would cost more, well of course it would, it's been that kind of week. They got most of the preliminary work done and then the heavens opened and they left. When they came back this morning they said it was too wet to work. Guess what the weather forecast is for the next week, afternoon thunderstorms. Who knows when it will get done. In the meantime all the trellises and plants that use to surround our pool are laying in the yard looking forlorn.
With nothing else to do today we're painting the back hallway that I've been threatening to do forever. I did the big parts and Mac is doing all the trim. Considering what kind of week it's been it will all need a second coat.
