On the Brink of Retiring

No, not me, but our five-year-old desktop computer. You see, our PC has acquired a very bad habit of conking out every once in a while. Without any warning, the monitor screen will shrink to about one-fourth of its original size, making it impossible to view the entire screen.


This has been going on for weeks, and this has caused major delays in my work. We found a temporary solution, though. We tilt the computer monitor left to right until the screen goes back to its normal size. We’re not really sure what the problem is. Could there be loose parts inside?

We’re not too keen on buying a new PC yet for as long as the one we have is still working. I’m not sure, however, how long our outmoded PC will hold out.

  1. I hope it holds. We're in the same dilemma. I use our PC for blogging and surfing and its old na rin. Hoping for it to last a little bit more until we can save for a new desktop.

  2. We have the same problem with our PC too, he wants to retire with me lol..

    By the way, I am trying to generate some support for our daughter. I entered her into a Smile Contest, so if you could please vote for her (just once), the contest runs until October 31st and your vote would be so much appreciated. To cast your vote, please go to this link. Please look for Jillian Rylie Cottrill. Thank you very much for all your help!

  3. My old monitor which was bought in 2001 decided to say goodbye. I've fixed it many times in the past. Finally it was time to let go and buy a new one… I am so broke right now!

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
