    Yeah. Two years since I was on the forums here. I have really missed being here.
    I took a step back for a couple reasons.
    One, I got a job. I went to work at my daughter's school...in the kitchen. I didn't realize how mentally and physically exhausted I'd be everyday after work.
    Two, my computer is ancient. It took 40 minutes for Photoshop to open this morning.

    With everything that's going on, I decided to give digi another shot. I figured that I can set the computer to open stuff while I do other things during the day. After my 9 year old does her school of course. So today I'm going to grab my old kits (like 2-4 years old) and get started on some of the challenges.

    Cross your fingers my computer doesn't die while loading stuff into Photoshop.

    That sounds more ancient than my 2011 iMac, which only takes about 5 or 10 minutes to open things. :)

    Good luck!
