"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

I'm Backkkkkkkkkkk! :-)

OK, I'm SO happy to be back on-line! :) I can't even begin to tell you how happy! There have been so many things that have gone on since our computer took a vacation I don't even know where to start...... {and I have SO much catching up to do... be patient, please!}
Well, first off let me say that our computer is still under the weather.. We took the hard drive out and sent it off to my very knowledgeable brother-in-law to see if he can retrieve all the info. We are thinking that the motherboard is toast and so will have to save our pennies for a new computer {or just wait til we get our tax return and use that.....}
The reason we can be on line again is that my mother-in-law let us borrow, for as long as we need, her dad's computer {he passed away last Dec. and his wife is not at all computer savvy}. Now we have to figure out what version of XP is on here so we can upgrade it to what we are use to {I'm hating this old style.. no tabs and I love my tabs! I hate having new windows opening up.} We are also trying to decide just which programs we HAVE to have ... ie camera software, picture software... ya know the important stuff! Yes I will be getting some sort of back up for the pictures and be backing them up on a regular basis! This has taught me that at least! :)
I have many pictures to share with you all in the very near future.
It has been such a challenge to survive these 20 some days without a computer.... not something I would recommend! I have read several books in this time frame, though! And I've taken a few more naps .. only to be awakened by screaming children {also not recommended... there is nothing quite like flying out of the chair to hair pulling and fists flying!}
Well, now it is off to bed... I will get to reading and catching up on all of you my bloggin' buds...

Oh how wonderful of your MIL to let you borrow her computer! =) That's so sweet.

Welcome back! I missed your wonderful posts.

Hahaha, I know what you mean about tabs; We have both firefox and IE on the computer because my family hates firefox but I can't handle IE's lack of tabs. =D When it opens a new window I just want to go GRRRRRRRRR. =D

Yay, yay, yay! My Carrie's back! I think I would shrivel up and die without my computer. Doesn't it feel surreal to be so dependent?! Hope your time away has been good & you've enjoyed your REAL life. :)
