The Beast

No, I'm not talking about Shane!!!! The Beast is my affectionate nickname for our computer in the family room. It doesn't seem like we've had it that long, but it is slow and it hates me. But, our laptop (affectionately known as the Beastie) has suddenly turned retarded. It doesn't know it can get on the internet. So, my blogging addiction has been denied for weeks! I have little energy to drag myself down to the family room and sit in a hard chair at the computer desk at 11:30 at night to write or read! Tonight, I was helping Jessica get her papers ready to submit to the National Honor Society (they've invited her to apply) and I'm up late so I thought I would explain my lack of participation in the blogging world.

My craft show is this Saturday. I have approximately 400 cards to sell. I still need to buy envelopes and make labels to attach to my baggies with an email address and phone number for re-orders. (I hope there will be re-orders.) So, besides my agonizing deprivation of the joys of a laptop computer, I have been stamping my heart out, and keeping up with the boys' soccer schedules, oh, and cleaning houses for cash! Yipee! Hope all your blogs are still as wonderful as ever. I hope to read them again after Saturday!!!!!

It's good to hear why you've been silent so long! Thanks for letting us know. I also really hate slow computers! I should name ours Beast 2 or something.

I've been up late helping Jeff with his NHS stuff, too. The things we mothers will do to help our children... :]

Your talk today was excellent!!!

Sooo--glad you're back! I missed you!

And-I enjoyed your talk today- it was really great.

And--I really helps me to see someone else up at this hour. I'm not so lonely. Thanks!

1) Great talk. Seriously. How long would it have been if you had given the entire thing? *grin*

2) High speed access that works is a gift from God. Period. End of discussion.

3) Lou, you aren't even close to the only one who stays up late. I should have been in bed hours ago, but Mama is just getting rolling on the family computer.

Good Luck at the craft show! And I hope that you can actually keep up with all of the re-orders that you get! : )

I'm sure your talk was good, but I thought I had better take care of my sick baby at home. Sorry I missed it.

Glad to see you back. My internet was out during all that rain but it turns out I can't even blame it on that. I hope I get this quilt done in time for the craft show!
