We arrived home from Florida late Monday night. It was a wonderful trip. Got to spend lots of time with family. Everyone had a wonderful time. I FORGOT my camera at home BUT one of our nieces took pictures and she is emailing pictures to us. I think my husband said, she already sent them via email to him. Now I have to wait for him to send them to my computer. :-) Me and the camera don't get along, I think, I don't like carrying it. hehehe!! It was a mental block !!! :-)

I didn't do too much yesterday but unpack, wash clothes, put them away, etc etc etc................All the normal stuff you have to do after coming home from a trip. Thank goodness I left the house clean when we left. I love coming home to a clean house after a long trip. That kinda sounds like maybe I don't always come home to a clean house. hehehehe. Kat(our cat) was glad to see us. My brother in law came over eveyday to take care of him and get the mail.

Monday night I went to get on the computer :-) BUT it was down!! Both computers in our house were down. GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! Ken got them running but mine had problems before we left. The printer was doing weird things. Now I have a new printer and my computer is working.SHHHhhhhhhhhh!!! I can't say that too loud. LOL Now I can get rest of my patterns printed, pictures for the pattern covers printed, etc. I will go out to the printer today and get all the other parts of the patterns I had them print. I like printing my pictures at home on my printer. These patterns have been A LONG TIME getting finished. Life sure does get in the way a lot sometimes. I had my share for awhile, I hope and pray. ALTHOUGH, when we got home and looked through the mail..........GRRRRRRR! There was a Jury Summons for me for March 12th. I have to call the night before to see if my badge number is in the group that has to go. I had to do this 3 months ago and my badge number wasn't in the group then. BUT it probably will be this time. :-) Oh Well!, will do my duty BUT I'd rather be in my studio CREATING!!!

Of course I have lots of other things to work on today. I think it would scare me if I didn't have something I HAD to do. :-) I'm off to work on a new doll and put her/him in pattern form.

Everyone Have A Wonderful Day, I AM!!
Love & Hugs

Hi Fran!!!

How are you? I'm great.
I have had countless computer problems too, since before my trip in December. I cannot use Outlook Express at all so I can only use my Yahoo email addresses. Bummer!
Anyway, glad you're back safe and sound from your trip... Looking forward to seeing your new goodies...

Tell Ken I said, Hi...

Talk to you soon.

Love You Bunches,

Don't forget to take a little bit of time for you! - It sounds as if you are SUPER busy! - perhaps Jury duty might give you a little bit of a break - bring a good book and snacks - make the most of it!

Computers can be such a pain when they aren't running just right. Had a glitch in my printer driver that wouldn't let my computer go into stanby. What a pain....took me three weeks to get it figured out.
I hate to do jury duty. Most of the time ya waste a whole day to find out they don't need you. I was seated once but made sure I got challenged so I could get was a death penalty case.
Anyway, glad you had a great time on your trip.
