Yes, it has been a while since I have added to the blog. But for good reasons. About 3 or so weeks ago, our computer decided to give up the ghost. It died and we spent time taking it to Best Buy to see what they could do with it... apparently that was not much. We had resigned ourselves to the fact it was gone and we'd have to make due without one. Which really only impacted me, since I'm taking my Masters ONLINE and in TECHNOLOGY!! You'd have thought that I would have my work backed up on a disc... nope, not me. So all the work that I had done was gone. I was pretty stressed with having to do work at school and at my mom's. Just not a pretty situation.
We had decided that spending the money right now on a new computer wasn't the best choice so I was just going to suck it up and deal with the stress. I was pretty proud of the decision we made because in the long run it turned out to be a great decision.
Anyhow,I gave the computer back to the man who bought it for me (this computer was a gift from the staff at school. I got it while on bedrest with the boys.) He had the warranty which expired one month prior to the crash. He kept it and ran all sorts of tests on it and used it as a challenge.
Miracle of miracles, he called me about a week ago and told me that he had resurrected the computer! I could have jumped through the phone and hugged his neck. I'm not sure exactly sure what he did but it doesn't really matter in the long run.
So all that to say, I have had a good reason for not being online recently. That has all changed so I hope to have updated the blog with pictures and thoughts ASAP.
Thanks for being patient - I'm coming!!
