Today was a long day. Landon left for work early, and put in about four hours. I wasn't feeling well this morning, but after breakfast, left for Washington Square to get my Dad a golf shirt for his 59th birthday. At 12:30pm, Landon and I met at our house, and left for McMinnville. I had Landon stop at Starbucks for a vanilla steamer (steamed milk with vanilla flavoring) to help me to feel better and to give the baby extra calcium during this time when its bones are forming. We got to McMinnville at about 1pm, and Landon started setting up my parents' computer, as he had been fixing it after a major crash over the past week. By 5:30pm, we were getting ready to leave, and Landon was finishing the last install when all of a sudden, all of the viruses that had previously been on the computer started to download themselves and reinstall themselves onto the computer right before his eyes! We hadn't put on an anti-virus scanner yet, so these viruses must have been coming through their cable modem. By the time Landon got the viruses off and got Norton 2004 installed on their computer, it was 9:30pm. I'd been sitting with my Mom in the computer room for about five hours with Landon (Landon had been in there a total of about 8 hours), and I was really tired! At least the computer is working as well as it can for a 99 Gateway. I think it should hold up for awhile for my Mom to use it for e-mail and internet browsing. It's not fast, but it's not as slow as it was, either--and, hopefully, it is virus free.

By the time we got home, it was 10:30pm, and I was sound asleep by 11pm.

THANK-YOU!!! THANK-YOU!!!! THANK-YOU!!!! A long day but it IS working. Hopefully it will stay that way!
I'm glad you got right to sleep! You needed it!

I'll have to say-- Landon is very patient! I would of been much more frustated than he showed anyway.
