Computer Help

A couple of weeks ago, I turned off my computer, because I was going out of town for several days.   When I turned it back on, it updated to Windows 8 and wiped out everything.  It is an extra computer that I have and it didn't matter that much, but when I went to my Itunes account, it had wiped it out. That is the main reason that I don't get rid of this old computer.

Does anyone know what I need to do to restore everything?  When I try to sync my Ipod, it does not transfer things that I imported from my CD's. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have a great Friday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year.

My mother had knee replacement surgery three weeks ago.  For the past 2 1/2 weeks she has been in a physical therapy rehab facility.  She had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics which caused her to be sick which cause her to be dehydrated.  The dehydration and the nausea meant that she had no filters in her system and the pain medicine built up in her system.  Friday night, my sister took her to the emergency room where she was given fluids.  The ER doctor changed her medication.  The next morning, she was a thousand times better.  I talked to her tonight and she is still feeling better.  She is scheduled to go home on Wednesday.  She cannot wait.  Even though she has been ill, her therapy is working. 

Someone asked me a question about Queenie.  Queenie is not her real name, but I will not disclose that.  She deserves her privacy.  She was given that nickname by a coworker.  The coworker and I, along with Queenie were executive assistants in the same area.  The coworker and I worked hard every day while Queenie sat around and did very little.  The coworker nicknamed her that because she sat around like a "Queen Bee".  Queenie also had an interesting wardrobe.  She dressed similar to Ugly Betty.  I think my grandmother would have referred to her outfits as "Get ups". 

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday.

Today, I had lunch with Queenie.  You remember Queenie.  We worked next to each other for years.  Now we work in the same building, but rarely see each other. 

I wore my black Pendleton Lana skirt, a red turtleneck swearer, black tights, Talbot's black suede flats (from a few years ago) and my new black Burberry quilted Westbury the eat at the hot dog stand over by the bus station.  I enjoyed my outing.

I think I may be getting closer to being settled into my new job.  It has been hard.  I came from a job where I knew everything to a job where I only know a little bit.  I have the skill sets, I just need to learn the new company.  I don't want to brag too much about being comfortable.  I don't want to jinx myself. 

I hope everyone has a great Saturday.

It is hard for me to think about posting with so many people suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  It saddens me to see all of the devastation that Sandy left behind.  We all need to keep the victims in our thoughts and prayers.
