So, my excuse for not writing recently is NOT that I’ve been too busy, but because I have been without a computer. Shortly after I typed the last blog entry (and as I was going to spell check and post it), my computer crashed. I was able to log on to Holly’s computer and post the saved entry (I’d already uploaded the pictures on the site). Thank God we purchased additional warranty and are covered for a full year (we bought the laptop new in April). Dell ordered a part and a technician came out last Thursday to try and fix it. Turns out that the problem is not what they thought it was and they had to order a new part, wait for it to come in and then send a technician back out. The good news is that none of this will cost us anything, the bad news is that I can not get onto my computer at ALL since it is something with the screen that went coo coo. I have been relying on my blackberry to get my e-mails (e-mail is a LIFE-line for me) and was very thankful to have it. I can do without surfing the internet (our bank account can too), but need my e-mail. I was talking to my Dad on the phone (blackberry) Friday and went to hit speaker phone so Mikey could hear his voice and “talk” and I dropped it in my glass of water. Naturally its DONE! I had to order a new one. Again, thank God we purchased insurance and simply had to pay the deductible for a new phone AND, I will have the new one today. They also don’t make the blackberry I had anymore, so I get an upgraded one. When it rains, it pours.
So, no pictures today (or until I get my computer back up and running). I am actually at the library using the computer. Its quite nice and the computers are very fast. I may be a new regular here. It will save me from having to tote my laptop to Starbucks (where I frequently sit and work in my spare time).
We are looking forward to my parents coming in this weekend. We are going to dinner Friday and then to see the lights. Hopefully I will be able to post pictures this weekend.
Please say a little prayer for my Dad and his family. His older sister died yesterday of lung cancer. She had been suffering and in pain recently so we are thankful that she is with God and has peace, but will miss her very much!
