Enter Witty Sack Related Title Here ....

My brain is fried!

Somehow I managed to get through the day. Although I can feel how tense my body is from all the stress. My plan is to hop in the shower and go out cruising once again .... I really hope that it is successful. It's not fun when you are the only one walking around the park late at night. :)

I hope that you all got through today in one piece as well. And, as always, hope that you enjoy this evening's post. Until next time ......

The Sack Is Back!

Well what seemed like an eternity is now over! I am still trying to make sure I was able to retrieve all of my stuff from my old computer, but the important thing is, I was able to get all of my pics for the blog from it! I could not be happier! And I am lovin' the new computer!

Again, I want to thank all of you for being patient and not giving up on the site. It means alot to me! I am about to jump in the shower, walk the dog and then head into work.

I hope that you enjoy today's long overdue post and are managing to have a great weekend!

Update # Whatever .....

Well, I think that I have resolved the no computer issue. Although it is not the ideal route I would have liked to have gone, well, it is better than nothing. After wearing out ALL of my options and hopes for getting financed through companies like Dell and Best Buy (I was denied EVERY place I tried), my roommate suggested Rent A Center. So this past week we stopped by our local store to see what was available and what the process was.

At first I was not sure it was going to happen. They were asking for things I did not really have. They wanted me to be at my job for a year, I have only been there 6 months. They also wanted 4 references, two had to be family members that lived somewhere else. Well, I am no longer on speaking terms with any of my family. I immediately thought that this was going to be a major failure and I would be declined. I mean, you are approved the day you are there, so I would know right away. But I filled out the paperwork and explained the situation. Once I was done, I handed it to the guy .... and guess what ... surprisingly I was approved! But now I have to figure out my finances, which is nothing new really. I have to pay $160 a month ($40 a week) for the computer. If I can get it paid off in 3 months, it will only be like $986. If I don't, well, it will more than likely be double by the time the contract is over.

With that out of the way, I tackled the issue of getting my stuff off my old hard drive and onto the new computer. The computer will be here today between 1 and 5. So I went to Radio Shack and Best Buy and asked them how I can get my stuff off of a dead computer. Radio Shack said I needed to buy an external hard drive and transfer the information to that, then to the new computer. The guy was kinda rude and laughed at me when I asked, so I walked over to Best Buy. They guy there told me I needed this Hard Drive eSATA + USB docking station to pull the information off the hard drive. So I had to shell out another $50 for that. I only hope that it works. So I am hoping that I will be on my new computer before 5pm this evening.

I had to spend a bit more money than I had hoped and am still going to be struggling. So I am asking that, if you can help me out in any way, please let me know. Whether it is the DONATE button to the right or postal mail. I would not ask this of any of you if I truly did not need it. I don't want to have to look into becoming a site that you have to pay for, but if it comes down to major struggling, I may just have to. And honestly, the main reason I rushed around trying to get this all taken care of was so that I can continue to run this blog. That means getting the pics off my old computer as well. This site is alot of fun for me, and I know it is for all of you as well. Anyway ... just wanted to update you all on where things stand.

I truly appreciate you all being so patient with me during all of this!

Worst Nightmare Has Come True!

Well, I have some bad news for you all. My home computer died on me this morning. I shut it down, left for a few hours, came back and am unable to turn it on. At this point, I have lost EVERYTHING! That means my documents, any saved information and, the worst part ... all of my pics! I knew this day was coming, I just did not think that it would be so soon! Right now I am posting this using my work laptop. I am not going to be able to use this for any posting of pics, since it is not mine. But I wanted to get on here to let you all know why you may not be seeing any new posts from me anytime soon.

My computer has been on its last leg for quite some time now. That is why I posted a DONATE button as well as an explanation as to why I was posting it. I was hoping that, with the amount of people that visit my site, that someone out there would be able to help me out. Surprisingly, no one seemed to be willing to do so. That sucks because I know there are sites out there that have requested assistance for alot more, and have received it. So I was very hopeful when I made that post. In the end, the computer died before any chance of assistance arrived.

I do not know when I am going to be able to post again. I also do not know if I am going to be able to gain access to all of the information that is sitting on my old computer. Right now, I am trying to get used to the feeling that everything is lost. I do not have the money to rush out and buy a new computer or to get this one fixed. I am trying my hardest to remain calm right now. If I think about it too much, I will become very angry.

Please ... if anyone out there can help me out, I would be eternally grateful. I know what computer I want and can supply you with that information. I want to order one from the Dell site but have been rejected for financing, my credit sucks. I do not have a credit card.

If there is anyone out there that can help me out, please contact me as soon as possible. You can email me at Or you can click on the DONATE button to the right and walk through the steps to donate. I am reaching out to all of you, begging for some sort of help right now. If I do not get the help I am hoping to, I do not know when or if this blog will ever come back.

Lack Of Sack

I want to apologize for not posting since Tuesday. It was a stressful week at work and I think it is all catching up with me. I have been so worn out. I slept until 7pm yesterday and until 3pm today. I have had no energy or motivation. Again, really sorry about that.

Nonetheless, I hope that you enjoy today's post.
