Pardon The Interruption

Sometimes things happen at the least opportune times. And sometimes they happen in order to slow you down and teach you a lesson. I'm still trying to figure what this last week has been.

I do know that when my laptop mysteriously locked up last Sunday, that my heart sunk. I did, after all have blog posts to write. I had photos to share. I had things to say. All of that needed to be put aside.

So, instead, I have kept tabs on the outside world via my Google Reader and my beloved Facebook. This, all thanks to the great gift Reed gave me for Christmas, an iPod Touch. And the splurge we made last year of wireless internet in our home. Oh how grateful I am!!

Please excuse my absence. Trust me, I've missed you here. Please also excuse my posts in the coming week or two if they are less than perfect. Getting the hang of the little screen and typepad is a challenge. I sincerely hope that my computer will be back in working order soon, but it needs to get sent back to the manufacturer since it's problem needs to be taken care of by them and the warranty has been extended due to this issue.

I am sincerely praying that all will return to normal soon and that all of my precious data will be intact when the laptop is operational again.

In the meantime, I do have good news from this week: We were able to celebrate my family Christmas over New Year's and we had together. We've also had plenty of time to spend with Reed's family and the kids and I enjoyed lunch out with friends on Wednesday. I also became Great-Auntie for the third time to yet another precious baby girl. Hazel Marie was born on New Year's day. Congrats new daddy and mommy, Ryan and Angie!

The bad news from the week: We are currently hunkered down at home, all four of us, due to the flu. We're getting through it, but hope it passes quickly and things are back to normal soon.

Well, there you have it. If you have been wondering where I have been, now you know.

Happy New Year Everyone!
