Default Internet & Q Withdraw!

We've had a stressful week at my house. I'm getting ready to graduate with my bachelor's degree in business next month. I was supposed to test-out of business computers but this week the audit person emailed me to say the testing person is no longer with the University so I may want to plan on taking this class next Fall!

This, of course, would prevent me from graduating next month so I've been feverishly contacting the dean and staff to plead my case and work something out.

The same day, hubby calls to tell me he's short $1000 on his check. Apparently, they changed the commission structure without telling the people! (He's still looking into this)

When I got off the phone with him, I opened my laptop to write another email to my school but my laptop turned on and then died immediately! I messed with the cord and battery for an hour before looking up the model and po wer issue question on my phone. It looks to be a faulty batter so I had to order a new one.

In the mean time, I realized I had lost my main source of sniffing out the deals. How would I print the high-dollar Qs? Panicked, I went to our office area downstairs and turned on the computer we let our kids use. It beeped, meaning there's a hardware issue, and couldn't boot up due to corrupt files.

At this point, I was getting desperate. I grabbed my oldest daughter's new laptop and turned it on to find...another corrupt computer. This time, the screen was shaking badly. I completely wiped the OS clean and reset it to factory settings, turned it on to find....a shaking screen!

Oh, words cannot describe my frustration at that point! I called and ordered an upgraded OS and back-up copy to replace two of the computers with. I overnighted it even. For over 24 hours, I desperately paced around my house.

I could see some deals online, but was unable to print and felt like a trapped animal. LOL

So, the software got here yesterday and I was able to get at least one laptop up and running. But the moral is, I realize how addicted to couponing and deal seeking I am! Love the technology in my life and have realized how much my couponing depends on it!

I hope your able to print out your coupons. We all can get that way. I am that way now as I am impatiently waiting for my ink to be delivered as I ordered it from Amazon. I ordered a door bell and the ink and of course the door bell came in first. Would have been nice to both be in the same pkg but noooooo! Both were Amazon items with free shipping as it was over the $25.00 amt.
I hope you hub can get things straightened out with that amount being so high. I know I can get into panic mode over the same things and it takes me a bit to remember.... Take a deep breath and exhale slowly, but it seldom works the way I think it should.lol
If you can't print coupons from home, perhaps a library would have computer/ printer usage for you? Just a thought...

With most sites, you have to download printing software, and library computers won't allow that, so it's a no go. That's why my husband and I finally bought a printer this year. I couldn't print barely anything.
