Well, hello there...

Hey, so I am so SORRY that I've not blogged. (And if you don't get my picture reference reader, we cannot be friends.) You know those weeks that you just have lots of life going on and you can't bring yourself to the computer? Well, that is me, times ten at least, because I still am without my trusty PC. It's been rough. Want to know what's been going on? Here goes...

1. My computer is STILL down. Hopefully, we can pick it up on Thursday. If you are a blogger, then you pretty much understand how important a person's PC is to them. I feel like a dang amputee. I can't blog, I can't photoshop, I can't do anything. This bites. And when I go to pay my bill for getting Shelia fixed (that's her name... don't you have a name for your computer?), it is going to be dang expensive. I had to get a new screen for her. My warranty ran out last summer, so I am just screwed on this bill. And the reason it is taking so long at the shop is because it is a specially ordered part. Ack.

2. I'm still having work-related issues. Enough said, there.

3. My Saturn broke down when we were in Philly (still waiting on my PC so I can upload photos to blog about... I've got some real winner pics - especially ones of us waiting on the repair job). We fixed the problem, but I am concerned that we only fixed the results of the problem (cracked radiator and frozen thermostat or something) and not the problem itself (faulty fan?). Fixing the results was expensive enough. How much more will it be to fix the original problem? I fear the answer to this question.

4. We are recovering from a visit from our buddies the Tudors. They came, they saw, their three year old wore us out. So, we've noticed a change in our sleeping patterns lately! It was a nice visit though. We stayed up (as late as we were able) and had cookie chats, just like the good old days. Nothing beats those toll house break-off cookies. I want to buy stock in those puppies.

5. Our apartment building is being sold. It's a three family house, and the new owners are going to be living here - soon. This is a mixed bag. First of all, I am sad that our current owner is selling. Dave was like Mr. Hooper from Sesame Street (but not as child friendly). I'll miss him. And it also means that our second floor neighbors will probably move out. Their rent will double from what they are paying now (they had some type of agreement because they've been here so long). And they have been good neighbors because they are always gone on the weekends! I'll miss that. So, it may be weird having the owners live here. Now, I'll have to ask before I plant anything and ask if I can host a Halloween party (yeah, I'm thinking of having one but am unsure if anyone will come!) I don't like asking people if I can do something in my own home. Arg. This is going to be a tough one for me.

6. Hopefully I'll get to see the Yankees vs. Red Sox game tomorrow. I'm going after work to help World Vision "Stuff the Bus" with backpacks and whatnot. It's a corporate sponsored event, and who knows if there will be tickets for the "volunteers" to get in. Ack. I hope so. I don't really like the Yankees, but I'd love to see this baseball game. And if this sweet Southern girl is going to have to traipse through Harlem by herself, there needs to be some sort of reward. The game (and the fans) should be intense.

7. And finally (well, I could keep going, but it would get very dull after a while), I have absolutely no pictures of my first Halloween party in Johnson City. (If you know me, you know that I LOVE my Halloweens.) I'm working on a new scrapbook of Halloween celebrations, and I have something for every year Tim and I have been married, all except for the year we bought our house in TN and hosted a teeny tiny party. I would contact the folks that came, but I am no longer in touch with them and don't know how to reach them. Serious bummer. Maybe I'll just draw a picture. I do remember that was the year we made a kitty litter cake. That was an awesome cake, too. It was in a (new) litter box and you scooped it out with a litter scooper. It was even complete with tootsie roll kitty turds. It was a masterpiece. I wish I had a picture of it!!!

Well, that's all I can do. I'm totally tapped out. Now it's time for my nap. (Hey, that picture, BTW, is a preview of the Philly pics. There was a really cool sculpture garden of game pieces.)

Yes... it's me again. Just had to add that I commented too early. The "kitty turd" comment made me giggle, too! I miss you so...

(yes, I know I said that last time, but there is power in repetition. I repeat... there is power in repetition.)
