TGIT! I need a good swoon.
Today, I have been technologically challenged. Not challenged in a way that I was having a difficult time figuring things out. Challenged meaning technology was actually challenging me today and thumbing it's nose at me. To start, I could not sign into the employee portal to clock in at work. SO, when all is said and done, it looks like I worked one minute. My boss will fix it, but still. Then every time I tried to run an application, I ended up staring at the screen for minutes while waiting for things to load, things to stop clocking, etc. Some of the applications I needed to do my work kept erroring out, so I pretty much got very little done other than eating more Cheez-Its than I should.
To make matters worse, no, let me take a step back. I have had my computer now for over two years. Mine, my very own. Hubby has one and I have one. I have had access to MS Office, but it was some kind of trial type thing. Hard to explain, but I didn't have full access to everything MS Office could do. Anyway, a few days ago, actually, I think it was Monday because Monday is always pants, (but I digress), all my Word documents and EXCEL spreadsheets changed from the MS Office icon to a solid orange page. When I clicked on the icon, I was told I could purchase or get a free 30 day trial. I had always thought I got MS Office when I got the computer, but I guess I didn't.
Anyway, I decided to try to purchase the software tonight. It was agonizing since there are three different options to purchase; two options are outright purchases and one is a month by month or a year plan, but you'd be paying every year. It was critical to get the software since my life is on EXCEL; my ledger, my bills record, MY WISH LISTS!!!!!! How was I supposed to know what books were coming out when??? I agonized over having to pay in excess of $100.00 just to click a button and have my documents magically unlocked. Smacks of extortion. Nevertheless, I now have access and can view my spreadsheets, so all is right again.
After such a frustrating day, though, it's nice to have something to swoon about. Today's swoon is from The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise.
Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by YA Bound @ http://yabound.blogspot.com.
Here's how it works. You take a book you're currently reading or recently read and share what made your toes curl and your heart race!!!
His lips touched mine and we melted into each other. His lips were so soft. They opened. and his kiss grew stronger and more insistent until I felt his body tighten against me. I couldn't catch my breath. It didn't matter how many times I'd fantasized about making out with him - it was so much better than anything I could've imagined. I wrapped my arms around his neck and returned his passion until I could hardly stand up. I was like a rag doll in his arms.
