Back In The Saddle Again

I thought my husband was going to go insane... I had no internet access for 2 days!!! What a mess. Last week we had the Christmas program for Tot and the in-laws over... and then I lost my phone and internet. Yaa. He was prepared for battle. My internet is my access to other adults. Somewhat of a life line.

Yet he was surprised. I didn't go crazy. I didn't sit and write 10 posts... I did what any good computer person would do when they have no access. I backed up files, ran defrag. I had to run it 3 times on Tot's machine just to get it to stop saying it needed defrag'ing. Geeze. I also installed (with hubby's help) a DVD writer to Tot's machine so I could start downloading my camcorder to DVDs again. Yep, I worked on getting the Christmas program downloaded. I have a minitape Camcorder... hence all the extra work. Tot's machine has a firewire...

I did NOT finish getting the Christmas program downloaded. Takes forever. But I'll try to finish it up tonight so you can see some of the cool moves my son has.

Until then... I am now 4 days behind in reading blogs and haven't written a single post until now. Yikes!!! I have a list of about 20 items to get done... oil changed, dog's nails clipped, grocery shopping, mammogram schedule, and the like... Oh... and Tot's school has let out for the holidays. I'll have him day in and day out for the next week while Tater is still in school. Say a prayer for me... I'm going to need it!

Welcome back!! :)

Do you do Happy Dog's nails yourself?

Pam: I have in the past done Happy's nails, but lately I just take him to the vets. It is easier and happier for all of us.

Oy, when that happens, it's Bananasville for me. I frantically try to get online with my cell phone, and that woiks like crud, so I just have to sulk in a corner and read a book instead.

Imagine that.

When my cable goes out..which has only happened once in the past six months..I have a Verizon card for my laptop so I can go wireless..but it is so much slower than cable it drives me nuts!
Glad your back!
