Miss Me?

Well I would love to be telling you that the reason I was gone was because I went on a nice long tropical vacation, but i would be lying like a rug. Something like Saturday the computer monitor started flashing and then it would just go black, then the next day it would come on then go directly to black. But if i kept shutting it off and then turn it back on I could see for just under 30 seconds what was on the screen. Long story short my monitor died. Sad.

It's replaced with an even bigger monitor and everything is working, and better yet it did not cost me an arm, leg and my first born to get it.

But I do owe a really nasty money shark(mom) who will break my arms if I don't pay her back when I get my income tax money. lol With kids in high school, and middle school, you can't be without a computer for very long. Amber is having to work on a project this weekend.


It is really cold here in Michigan, so much so that the kids did not have school today and already have cancelled school for tomorrow! I say WTF! I don't remember them cancelling school because it's too cold out when I was going to school...I remember walking to school with icicles hanging from nose. Being so cold that I could barely stand it. My kids have it made, they don't walk to school or walk home in this. I luckily drive them or my mother helps out where i can't. That's one good thing about living so close to your parents :) I'm glad that they close it now tho. Kids today wear the most inappropriate clothing for the weather. Shorts, Mini skirts, or just a hoodie during a blizzard, what is wrong with some of these parents. Then they wonder why their kids are sick!

Just the other day I saw a neighbor girl run outside in the snow without shoes! Stupid!



I missed a few things and it took me a few hours to catch up with all of your blogs. I got another award thanks to Savanna I have no idea what kind of award it is. But thank you Savanna for offering it to me.
And I offer it to anyone that knows what this award is all

Also I was tagged by T at It Matters To Me to participate in a great picture entry that i plan on doing as soon as I put some pictures in my computer. She caught me at a time where I just cleaned up my computer of pictures. Don't worry it won't take me long knowing my daughter and her camera! lol


Thanks for all the well wishes for my mother. She is home safe and sound and being taken care of by a home nurse everyday. She talks about it on her blog.

Anyways, I am tired now...take care.

I popped over to your mom's blog and said hello.

I don't know what I would do if I lost my computer - even though this one is so slow and about to fall apart any minute. (isn't it sad that a 7 year old computer is ancient?)

welcome back.

This is what I believe your new award means.
This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!"

Anyhow, Thanks for willing to play tag when you can, ya know it is no biggy.
Sorry about your computer, I know how that feels, computers suck sometimes.

Norty technology :( But I'm glad your family has access to a working computer again. Yay!

Snow? Blizzards? For the past few days here we've had really warm days! And I mean really warm! Sitting sweating kinda weather. Thankfully it only lasted two days.

Look after yourself, OK?

Mal :)

I'm so glad that you mom is home and doing better. That must have been so difficult for you all.

I'm also happy that you got a new monitor. You are missed when you are not posting.

Take care and stay warm.

Yeah, I had a computer crash scare over the weekend, but it just turned out the usb mouse was going crazy, refusing to work, so it'd make the whole computer shut down. Strange, but at least now it's working! Can't wait to see the tag-photo thingy!
