My trip home to California from Boston, did not go well.
My "nonstop" flight ran into a problem and I somehow ended up in Nevada.
Oh yes, I eventually made my way home yesterday but without a minute's worth of sleep in over a 24 hour period. (Thank you to whoever suggested I take A Game of Thrones with me on this trip.)
Massive quantities of steroids for pain will WIRE you.
And make you JUMP-JUMP-JUMPY!
(But they do help a lot with my pain level, so … fair enough. Life is one big trade-off, right?)
Am I rambling?
Did I mention no sleep?
I'm back in Orange County.
I haven't slept in two days, I think.
I can't sleep either – thank you mega-steroids.
And yes, I am exhausted.
My laptop apparently does not have enough RAM (kind of like short-term memory for those of you non-computer-savvy folks) to run Lightroom and/or Photoshop, let alone both of them at the same time. I've already upgraded the RAM as much as it can be upgraded since it's an ancient (three year old) laptop. Current laptops apparently come with twice the RAM I now have.
Why did they name it RAM?
Don't tell me – I don't really want to know, and I don't actually care.
Something else is wrong with it also. (It doesn't work – har dee har har!!)
Today I'm going to go price laptops.
I hope you'll bare with me as I try to get my online life back in order.
(BTW, I can't type on a desktop due to my arm – I have to have a laptop on my lap in order to type. Seeing as I've moved into full time photographer-mode, it would be so much easier and better if I could work on a full size, super smart, desktop computer, but sadly that's not an option.)
Getting a new laptop computer may sound exciting, but unexpected expenses are not exciting at all when you have two kids in college at the same time.
Just sayin' ….
I did manage to upload the photos from my trip, but it took over three hours with my sort-of-bandaged computer. I also had to juggle while standing on one foot, balancing in mid-air, all at the same time in order to make the upload work.
Despite the lack of sleep, the steroid-induced jumpiness, the broken computer …
I'm still on a bit of a Boston high.
It was so beautiful, and I crammed activities into every waking moment while I was there.
Girls just want to have fun, right?
I couldn't get enough of the pretty New England leaves!
