Could someone please explain just how it is that after my son moved out (taking quite a few of "our" things with him) we seem to have ended up with more crap in our house than we had before? I still haven't plowed through all of it yet. BUT, it's true, Santa is bringing me a room of my own!
Needless to say, that room has required a lot of cleaning...and painting...and so forth.
So yes, it's been quite chaotic here...but that's not why I've been away (and WOW do I miss visiting blogs!)...on Monday afternoon my laptop died. Again. So that meant taking a trip to the Apple store, at the Dreaded Mall, in a major rainstorm. Where the "genius" at the "genius bar" confirmed that it is indeed dead and will be headed off to Memphis for the holidays. So my wonderful dad decides to give me an early Christmas present--a new computer!! Yay!! So I end up going to pick it up later in the day, you know, in the afternoon at a major mall the week before Christmas. So I had to park pretty much out in Siberia--and did I mention the rainstorm?
But hey, it was so festive being one of what seemed like 500 other people at the Apple store...and they had my new computer all ready...in a giant box. With a handle that broke when I was about at the parking lot. Did I mention the rainstorm? Sigh.
Anyhoo, there are still some issues to be worked out, which is probably true with any new computer, but slowly it's learning how to do what I tell it to. If I ask really politely.
I've had lots to blog about but just haven't been able to do it.
So the easiest, and probably best thing for me to do is to share some more pics of our holiday decorations...
and to wish all of you a safe and wonderful Christmas!
