Okay, so I'm BACK ON! WHOO-HOO! There's A LOT I've been wanting to share, but won't do it all in THIS post. For now, I was just going to fill you in on what's been going on here and then get back to work with the boys. (Remember, we home-school) =-)
SO, the computer mess wasn't the computer at all. (It was just the quickest and easiest way to explain things from my phone- since THAT'S how I did the update)
The problem, I was told, was the modem. (We have satellite internet - no high speed available HERE)
Well, we had to place an order, then wait for the man to come install it. He finally made it yesterday, and the computer was working PERFECTLY by noon.. but then we also had to have our hot water heater replaced.
When it rains, it pours, right?? ☺
So, we were busy a large portion of the afternoon getting the heater out, and the new one in. My father-in-law did all the work.. isn't he a SWEETIE???
Well, he was concerned that a pipe that carries the fumes out wasn't in place (Mr. Sam isn't a plumber - he was just taking care of things for us) Oh, did I mention that it's a GAS water heater?
SOOOOOO.. we THEN had ANOTHER man to come and help get that pipe thingy in place.
Okay.. ALL OF THAT to say that by the time all of those "helpers" came and left it was time to go to church.. and THAT, my friends, is why I didn't do a post last night.
Was this the most BORING thing you've EVER READ??? Seriously. HA!!!!!!
Okay, maybe I'll be back soon to share some photos from the bloggy giveaway we did back on Brent's birthday. (If I don't, remind me??) O:-) I'm SOOOO FORGETFUL!
Alrighty, my friends.. I hope to get to make my rounds and catch up with all OF YOU sometime today. I sure have missed you! =-)
Have a GREAT day...
