Back in action!

WOW I don't even know where to start.....

My laptop was declared dead on December 10th at 3:43 p.m. Services were held, and many tears were shed!
What could I do two weeks before Christmas? No way could I afford a new one!
(Until you have been without you cannot comprehend the pain!)
Fast forward to Christmas morning.......
When the love of my life surprised me with not only a brand new computer but also a digital camera of a caliber I wouldn't have dreamed of owning! It was wonderful, I felt like one of the kids! (and I think a couple of them were jealous!)
I have a lot of work ahead of me, trying to salvage some of the thousands of pics on my old hard drive, and mp3s, etc. Not to mention learning how to use my amazing camera. I am going to enjoy every minute! I'm sure this is not the last you have heard of this, keep your eyes open ...
I will be posting pics very soon and very often!

The worst thing ever...

Okay anyone who knows me knows I'm a little prone to exaggeration! But this is serious!! My best friend in the whole world died last week. Yes you guessed it. ......


I know, I know, a little perspective here. It's just that we start to take for granted how easy some things have become. If I wanted to know what time the Gateway closed I could know in 5 min. If I wanted to know exactly how much money was in my checking account I knew immediately. kids grades no problem, the square root of pie.... you name it. So if you have been wondering why I haven't been posting (and I hope you have!) it's because a nasty, mean, virus has claimed my computer. Computek is trying to resurrect it as we speak. In the mean time this post is courtesy of MJ's old faith full T-rex computer. Slower than cold tar!!

(again slight exaggeration)

So I will not be posting too frequently until I get my friend back, please pray for her, and me!
