The last few days were a bit hectic.  My computer completely crashed.  I had been having issues with it for months and it began to blue screen on me.  I opted to attempt to re-format the whole thing and it did not work.  It would not even load windows.

Since my Real Estate business is entirely online, I was in a position that I needed to have a working computer with a quickness.  After some fighting to try to get the old one back up, I submitted and bought a new one.  Nothing fancy, just a new computer.

At the jobby job, we are opening some new products so we have several corporate people in the building.  They seem nice enough but I need to watch myself.  I have always been the first person to let the emperor know he is not wearing any clothes.  It should make for an interesting weekend.

During all of this confusion, I have not had much time to make new recipes.  I did however, make a nice fajita.  It came out really nice and was a great comforting meal.

I also got the chance to make some nice potato salad to take to work with me on these long weekend days.  Figures, it is cold for a few weeks in the south and as soon as it gets nice, I spend all day at the jobby job.

Rockin' fajitas! But bummer on the computer, I hope the new one's working out ok.

those fajitas are smashingly fabulous...I bet they were great.

I hope you are enjoying your new computer, I love my Windows 7.

Mmm, the fajita and potato salad looks great. You know what I love in potato salad? Pimentos! Anyway, sorry about your computer :(

What is that purple looking sauce??? Looks interesting. I was a big fan of the cheap dell laptop. Then I got a mac book and I love it.

I may have been stalking you on myspace earlier and I retalized we have alot in common. Well not that much, but still, six states in two years? Where were you and why so indecisive?

Ps Nice Fajitas

Ciao Vic, missed your post, just returned from my trip, only a few more shakes, but nothing drastic... just strange; earthquakes are strange and give you strange sensations!

Good on the new computer, on the fajita and ... yep, often I need to count to 10 to before I say what I think at work :-).

And sorry you didn't win the book, I'll do another giveaway again, it kept my blog rolling while I was away!

It's cooled down again here in CA but at least it's a sunny day! woo hooo!
