Good bye, September!

September 30th, 2016 at 09:32 pm

I know the calendar says it is the final day of September, but wow, where has this month gone? Of course with DH's surgery and my colonoscopy, much of it was doctor's appointments and procedures.

I can say it was kind of spendy. I bit the bullet and bought a MacBook. My current cheapie laptop is about to bite the dust. I just finished copying files and photos. I was going to buy another cheap laptop, but DH said I should just get what I really wanted. We had the money so I did. Now, I am trying to get all the personal stuff of this laptop. If I revert back to factory settings, will it clear most of the stuff off or will I need to run a program to clear the hard drive?

DH and I volunteered at one of my former schools today. He has been reading to two classrooms for the past 8 years. So today he read to the two classrooms and I helped in one of the classrooms by working with a couple of the students who are behind with fluency words.

DH's brother is going to have surgery next month. They were talking on the phone and although DH always seems supportive about the canning and enjoys the food, he never really says too much about it. I had to chuckle yesterday. He asked me if I had a list of everything that was canned. I did so he wanted it to read to his brother, almost bragging about it. Too funny! DH's brother has always had a much larger garden, but his wife doesn't can. She says it is too much work. It is work, but most things in life are.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Hello, October!

    You can set it back to factory settings but that doesn't clear off the hard drive entirely. When I upgraded to the MacBook Pro, I removed the hard drive from my old laptop and had my husband drill through it before dropping it off at Best Buy for recycling. No one is getting any info off that laptop! Smile It was just two screws to undo it. Probably could search how it is on your computer on YouTube.

    Like CCF said, resetting to factory settings doesn't erase everything. (thankfully ... that's how I was able to sort of recover DH's pictures I hadn't moved ...)
