A Grey Sunday

Hi there!!

I'm sitting here with my computer TRYING to find all my old bookmarks, sites, etc. Why you ask? Well after having this laptop for just 3 months, the wonderful, stupid hard drive decided to fail big time. I bought this computer from Best Buy with it's Geek Squad protection for one year and I'm glad I did. I'm almost sorry I didn't extend the warranty for another year but live and learn. The could have backed up my bookmarks and email and such for $100 DOLLARS but I decided against that. Why does it cost money to get stuff off of a readable but broken hard drive??
What does that mean?
I get to go internet surfing again!!!! Goodie for me!!

Today Chris and the kids went to Chicago, I was supposed to go but I pulled a muscle in my back and have a huge backache and headache to go along with it so I declined. Kinda hoping that they would not go and wait until next week so I could go along, but nope the kids voiced their opinions loudly and I just told them to go. Maybe, when I'm feeling better, we can go to the aquarium in Chicago and I can see my favorite animal, The SEA OTTER!! Love those little animals.

It's storming up something awful here today, yesterday and possibly tomorrow. We hit 84 degrees on Friday and today it's 52 degrees. I call that mean!! Can't wait until the weather is in the 60-70 degree range for longer periods of time. Even some of my tulips are blooming!!! I'm still installing all the programs that the replacement hard drive deleted so no pictures this time around, maybe next time.

Until then..................................

A little bummed today....

Today is the 6th anniversary of my dad's passing. I miss him dearly and wish he was here to see his grandchildren grow up. All those things that a grandparent should see, he's missing out on. I love you dad and miss you terribly.

going to go and look at pictures.
Talk to ya soon

Stuff/Life in general

Well, it's the Sunday before Easter and I'm sitting here waiting for the umteenth load of laundry to get done. Easter will be a low-key event for us this year as DH is traveling for work out of the state, my lovely daughter will be going to a concert (didn't realize it was on Easter Sunday until AFTER she purchased the ticket, oh well live and learn), My mom is going to her sister's house for the holiday which is fine but at the present moment, she is mad at me. So I'll give her some time to cool off and maybe she'll come around.

Got quarter grades this weekend and all I can say is that 2 out of 3 kids are doing great. Darling daughter is not. So we have taken things away from her and if her grades improve come June (last report card of the year) then we will give her those things back. Kids spent the night at my sis-in-law's house and DH and I went bumming around town, which is a cool concept for us as we don't get to do that often. The bullying has stopped for middle child for the time being and he seems happier than I've seen him in a LONG time. He just needs to speak up for himself and talk to the school counselor and things will get resolved (hopefully)

We are supposed to get at least 5 inches of snow (I know this is April, but in Wisconsin anything can happen) but it's not here yet, here's to hoping that it will pass us by completely (I know it won't but one can hope can't they???)

Started a new stitching project and maybe I'll finish this one. Need to get a couple of things framed too. The walls still look bare and we've been in this house for almost 6 years!!! Need to get crackin' on that one.

That's it for now, If I don't post again until after the holiday, I do hope you have a blessed one.
