Calendar Conundrum

Well guys... we've run into a bit of a conundrum.  For the first time since I've started my blog, I'm not sure what to do about my free calendars for 2020.

My old college laptop has finally neared the end of it's time.  It's over 13 years old, so it's done me well.  The last time I tried, it still will turn on, but I can't get the mouse track pad to work.  The mouse doesn't even show up on the screen.  I'm a bit at a loss... all of the software that I use to make the calendars is on that laptop.

I've known that my laptop was starting to have trouble so I made the 2019 calendars the same time I made the 2018 calendars just to be safe.  Now that we're nearing the end of 2019, I'm starting to think ahead and I'm unsure what to do.  

It's a pretty significant commitment to replace the design software, and I'm not ready to make that monetary commitment.  I already spent a lot of money a year ago when I purchased a brand new MacBook Pro as well as an iPad Pro for our businesses.  I'm planning on at least getting both InDesign and Illustrator down the line, but it's not in the cards right at the moment.

I might try to see if I can get my laptop to work with a USB mouse, but I know it didn't work for Eliot's when I tried that.  Maybe it will work for a different mouse.  I don't know... I guess we'll see.  Eliot thinks he might have a temporary solution that will at least get the calendars completed, so I'm hopeful that will work out.  Otherwise, it'll take a lot of copy/pasting to get them done and I really don't have time for that... blah!

Anyways... I just wanted to give you all an update!  This is the time of year when I usually get a lot of requests for calendars with the school year starting and with people looking ahead to the next year.  I'm trying my best to get them ready for 2020, but you'll just have to bear with me!  I really am doing my best!!!  °o°
