Problem was: I had to uninstall not only the 9.7 version, but the 9.6 version, too (when I had upgraded to 9.7, the 9.6 version stayed on my computer, but AOL said I had to get rid of it). The uninstallation (did I make up a word?) had removed all versions of AOL, so I couldn’t UPGRADE to 9.6; I had to install as new. I was able to save my files and folders of the 9.7 version, but how could I get the new 9.6 to recognize them? Aaarrrgh!
Thank GOD for my husband! I think I would have thrown my computer against the wall (or maybe just cried - I wouldn’t have damaged my computer or else I’ll be stuck with a new one-- and Windows 8--and THAT ain’t gonna happen!). After about two hours he finally figured out how to get my new 9.6 to recognize my saved files and folders from 9.7. Yeah, he got frustrated using my computer (it’s slow and he’s used to Windows 7), but he came through and I’m so thankful. I’m now back to the version I like and it works like it should. Yay! I will not upgrade AOL again (at least not unless I’m forced to upgrade from
Vista). It’s not worth the hassle
(plus I really don’t like Google Chrome). At least I now KNOW where those pesky
files are kept and I can now back them up accordingly. You know, in case my
wonderful (albeit slow) computer finally decides to depart this world (heaven
Hey! Did you see? The Steelers and the Rams both won again yesterday (apparently my other Rams shirt is working). They could both end the season 8-8! I’m keeping my fingers crossed (and will wear my shirt again next week!).
Tomorrow is movie day for the family. We plan on seeing “Saving Mr. Banks.” I’m looking forward to that. And depending on what time we see it (which depends on whether or not my daughter is working) means I have to make sure dinner is easy. Yep, I’m actually cooking! Lasagna!! Yum, yum! Got cheesecake for dessert, too (thanks to the gift my parents sent us), which we’ll have later during the watching of “Gremlins.” Fun times are ahead!!
Since Wednesday is Christmas (you knew that, right?), I’m moving my Wednesday Reads to Friday (because I will have at least one book to report--yay! I reached my goal!).
So…are you getting a white Christmas? Hoping for one? Our snow was washed away from all that rain we got over the weekend. Flurries are expected on Tuesday, but I don’t think they’ll cover the ground. White Christmases might look pretty, but it’s not so fun when you’re driving to your friend’s house. Yep, Mary’s cooking a big Christmas dinner and we’ll be there to eat it! Mmmmm!
I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!!
