We had a little bit of excitement this week. Thursday afternoon, I noticed that the computer monitor was not displaying the current time, as my screensaver would normally be having it do. After a bit of quick searching, I determined that the monitor was dead. By the time my wife got home from work and looked at it herself, I’d already realized that I had just over 24 hours until I needed to start posting this – so ordering a new monitor or waiting for the old one to be repaired were not ideal options. After my wife called several local merchants she remembered seeing computer equipment at, we learned that really the only place to get a new monitor from, in this entire town, was Walmart. As much as I hated to do it, we bought the monitor, and my PC is back in business.
I have a confession. I know that I have not been doing a good job of keeping these Saturday Posts going lately. There is a reason – my own shortsightedness.
You see, when I first started this, I had enough materials to make a post every week for over 3 years, and I have been getting new things every few months throughout. However, I didn’t set up a system to keep track of what I’d already posted, so eventually I couldn’t just look at the file folder and know what had or had not been used. I know that there is still a lot in that folder that I haven’t posted, but it’s a mess.
So, I’m not sure what to do next. The way I see it, I have a few options: I can start over and just post everything in alphabetic order; or, I can start over and move the freshly used files to a new folder that is “used”; or I can do a labor-intensive search of the past Saturday posts to identify what I’ve already posted and move them from the active folder. Of course, there are probably other ideas that you might have, and I’m willing to hear them.
So, if it matters to you – please leave a comment to let me know what you think my best course of action should be. I’ll consider everything suggested – so long as you follow one rule. Please don’t post any links to other sites or blogs in the comments.
Thank you for your ideas, and your patience.
