We have reservations

for spring break. I did make them at the resort I posted about last week. We are looking forward to a nice little mini vaca. Yay! Spring break starts tomorrow afternoon for us but we are not leaving for our trip until Wednesday next week.

And speaking of spring break, Saturday darling daughter and I are going to an all day crop at a friends house. It's been a while since I've been to one and I'm really looking forward to it!

My computer seems to be running well. Last fall when I had computer issues after a MS update and they told me to remove service pack 3 because of incompatibility issues- since I have avoided it like the plague. When I picked my computer up for BB it didn't take long to realize they had installed SS3. I was very nervous! Luckily, things have gone well. The only glitch I've had is actually in my photoshop program of all things. Tonight I'm reinstalling and reloading my itunes. That's just about it. All the important stuff is back in place. I've really enjoyed PSE7 and may pick that up and use for now. Did you know its on sale @ Costco online for under $50? Can hardly beat that.

Yesterday dear hubby and son started sinking posts for our garden. Dear son is out skinning the top this afternoon. It's been a few years since we grew one and I am really excited to have one again. We all really enjoy gardening. Now, what to plant?

This evening I'm going to scrap but I wanted to post a quick update. Next one will have lots of pics and creations, I promise. Thanks for checking in on me! You all have a super fab weekend!!!

Boo hoo

as you know my computer is in the shop. I was told they shipped it off and it didn't get fixed before it was sent back. I expressed my *unhappiness* with that and having to be without it for nearly two weeks already so they said that they'd look at it in house. Yesterday the update was that they did replace a part but that it was necessary to do a system restore now too.

This is two system restores in the last six months. Prior to that I had not had a single problem with my computer. Restoring means so much work for me to get it back in order. *sob*

I'm supposed to go pick up my baby tomorrow. I hope to be pleasantly surprised and not have lost everything. Maybe they did a nondestructive restore? A girl can hope right?

Other than that, I've had the flu for the past few days but feel much better today. The school carnival is tomorrow night and so I am heading off to work today to help prepare for it. The kids and I will be running the book fair and a book walk at it tomorrow night. We're looking forward to it.

One more week until Spring Break. I was searching the web for somewhere go for a few days while on break. We are thinking of going here to a resort at the breathtaking Alsea Bay.

There are so many wonderful things to do in the area as well. I'm sure it would keep us all busy and happy for 3 or 4 days.

Well, I need to head off to work. I hope you all have a super fab Friday. Don't work too hard. :)

Still holding out

with this old computer. I downloaded a free version of PSE onto this because its to old to run my creative suite. It's been fun creating this week while learning elements again. The last version I owned of elements was 3 but over time it's been improved so I'm now playing with 7. Can I just say that it has some REALLY COOL features!

Here's a few things I've made this week-

The designers at WST have really outdone themselves recently. If you haven't been there lately you really should make it a point to check out the shop and the gallery. Both are oozing with inspiration! And today here's what's going on-

That should about wrap up the ol' blog post today. I'm without my computer for at least another week they say. So when it gets back to me I'll update my project 52 pics.

Thanks for stopping in! You all enjoy the rest of your week. Have a good one.

Stopping in quickly

to say I'm still kicking. My thyroid med I've recently started appears to be giving me some funky side effects so it was finally changed yesterday. Hopefully the new presciption will be better for me.

When I got home yesterday afternoon from my doctor appointment, I learned my computer was broken. :( I love my computer and I'm so sad that I have to do without it for a bit while the geek squad gives her some TLC.

Did I mention I had to dig out my dinosaur of a laptop that is like 7 or 8 years old to get by? Ssssssslow! How did we do it back then? lol! It's actually kind of funny to have the old laptop out though. The kids monitor died a few weeks ago and in a pinch I brought in the old huge monster of a monitor that was stored out in the garage. We all laughed and joked we were totally going retro. It matched quite well with an old rotary phone we have in the same room. A few days later my darling daughter's cell phone died and she was teasing me that she'd have to used this really old cell phone we had stuffed in the back of a drawer- keeping with the retro theme. Lol! At least they have a sense of humor, right?! We actually had an extra Razor she is using but it gave us a little giggle that afternoon. And now the laptop is rev'ed up and in my room. Not quite retro but definately old.

Well, this morning I cleared off my craft table. I have tons of ideas swimming around in my head. So this evening I plan on getting my hands dirty. :)

It's been snowing off and on all day. They are calling for a few inches tonight and more through the next two days. I hope you are dry and warm in your neck of the woods. Have a great weekend and I'll do a better post with pictures when I get my computer back.

Good night all!
