Sorry its been so long. I’ve had a string of events and one destroyed (yes Destroyed!) computer standing in my way of posting lately.
First we were on vacation. By vacation I mean my hubby had 2 weeks off from work so we spent a lot of time going out or just hanging around the house enjoying each others company.
During that time we took our eldest daughter to Camp Sancta Maria in Northern Michigan. It was about a 4 hour trip up, a couple of hours at camp getting her checked in and settled, and then another 4 back. Or so we thought. About 2/3 of the way though the trip our car started overheating and we had to stop. Blew the intake manifold. Water everywhere and steam POURING out from under the hood. Long story short, it took us an additional 2 hours (maybe more) to get towed and rent a car to take us the rest of the way home. The shop had the car fixed a day and a half later, so off on another road trip to rescue the car and return the rental.
Then we had a day at the County Fair. It was great. Right to Life had a huge booth and display! It was awesome.
Couple days later and its back on the road to go pick up our daughter. Not so bad this trip. check out was quick and there were no mishaps on the way home!
Then I’m informed by family that one of my Uncles (also my God-father) who was battling lung cancer for a long time had gotten worse and Hospice was now taking care of him. So another road trip to go and visit before it was too late. I’m glad I went, a week later he had passed away. Back on the road again for the funeral.
Now to the destroyed computer. My laptop had been giving me some trouble and I was not using it much, just to check mail and write the blog. One of my twins picked it up carried it across the room. I asked her to give it back to mommy, not thinking about HOW she and her sister ‘give’ things back. Well, to them ‘give it back’ means to HURL it across the room. Yeah, laptop went flying! So now it makes this weird buzzing noise and tries to boot up, but stops before everything fully loads. Nice since all my notes, research and partially written Part Two of my last post was on there.
So now that things are settling down, Hubby is back to work, one daughter started school yesterday and the other two start next week, I’ll have more time to sit at the desk and use the beast (desktop computer) to write the blog.
I hope everyone has had a safe and blessed summer!
See you again soon! Until then, God Bless.
