I don't usually give step by step instructions because of time constraints, but if you ever want to know how I did something just email me.

I just got my computer back today. YIPPEE! I had to take it to the Geek Squad at Best Buy. Remember it got a virus within 30 minute of being online the night we got the Internet hooked up. The hardware was ok, but the operating system had to be totally restored. I called AT&T today and gently complained that if the original person who signed me up had correctly done their job and activated the Internet security suite I would have downloaded it with the installation that probably would not have been the case. Today I downloaded it w/o a problem. They are giving me a credit that will cover just about half the repair cost. ( that's better that's better than nothing). We had been using my daughters laptop until she went back to school yesterday. It's good to be back to "normal" again.

Yesterday, since I couldn't get online, I colored images and made lots of cards. I also chatted on the phone and got caught up with a couple of friends. I even moved the furniture and vacuumed the entire family room!! Who knew I could be so productive w/o a computer.

This is my 199th post in just a few months. I guess I have a lot to say, LOL. If I had more energy, I would come up with a contest for some blog candy, but since I don't, I'm going to randomly choose from someone who has already made a comment on post 1-199 and send them something. I will post who it is on the next post, probably after the holiday weekend.

Well I need to go, I only have a few minutes to catch up on a lot of blog reading. I will also have a lot of cards to finish and photograph this weekend. There will be plenty to post about in the coming days...

Have a blessed holiday weekend.
