Yes, Bonnie, I can now freak out. I got my computer back for a sizable chunk of money. Mac coughed up most of my lap top stuff and my pictures. However he ate my email program, all my addresses and all my games. I guess I can live without the games. I am adjusting to a new, and more complex email program. I have many of the addresses on the old desk top.
Amelia and I went out to investigate getting a new Mac. The hardest to part with it is the Appleworks program which is no longer available on Macs and, apparently will not work the same if moved to a new Mac. This is the program I use to draw out my quilt designs. (And incidentally the miserable little apple man shown here)
I feel as though I am getting too old to learn new things… I have two Otterbees bringing their Macs this week and I have an offer from a Mac geek to come and help me. Maybe I will prevail with help.
I will try and stall freak-out time.
