A Hectic September Reaps October Benefits

Just a quick update, coming to you from what is now known as the kid's computer.

We still don't have protection for the new PC so all 4 of us were tickled to finally be able to get the old PC hooked up again. I'm also anxious to get the new one protected, as well as getting it some speakers, and a printer (our old printer isn't compatable) so it is fully functional. In the meantime, the kids are thrilled to have a PC they can call their own, even if they have to let Ma and Pa borrow it on occasion.

It's been a busy week, actually, it's been a busy month! Honestly, I can't remember a time when I have felt so busy, even when I was working outside the home. In addition to trying to get things done around the house, reorganizing, finding places for things so everything can be "in it's place", trying to figure out priorities for remodeling.... I've been rushing to get as much laundry done as I could while the weather held. Thanks to the new washer I was able to get an amazing amount done, and my wardrobe has increased by an amazing amount. Pa's wardrobe has increased as well. Between the two of us we're finding that we now need to add yet another dresser to our bedroom. I'm hoping we might find a good one at the thrift store.

A huge thank you goes out to Marcia, who sent me some books, as well as a few treats for the kids, which they really appreciated. She did the lollipops up so cute as flower centers and she included a post-it pack she had covered. All adorable, and so clever!. Thank you very much, Marcia! Oh! And the books are great too! Pa was amazed when I actually managed to clear enough space on the bookshelves for them, before he even had time to grumble about it! LOL

More great news at our house. The part we needed came in. Pa was able to pick it up today, so hopefully I'll be happily cooking on my range once more by supper time tomorrow. I'm beyond excited about that! I can't remember the last time I was so eager to be able to use an oven!

Speaking of supper...Pa is fixing what promises to be our last meal prepared on the propane stove, and it's almost finished, so I'm outta here. Tomorrow I get to cook in my kitchen again! What a great way to start a new month!

LOL Marcia, yeah, everything's good. Just really really busy!

I'm hoping to be able to gad about a bit tomorrow, visit everyone else's blogs. I've missed "seeing" and visiting with everyone.
