Well, John walked in the door this evening with our computer in his hands. It was a sight for sore eyes, let me tell you!
Initially, we thought we were going to replace it, but when we found out that we could repair this one fairly inexpensively, we opted for that and are hoping to squeeze a little more life out of it. I never dreamed I'd be without a computer for three weeks, and that was definitely not our intention, but that's the way it worked out and I'm here to tell you that we survived, and I actually enjoyed having a mini-break.
So...anyway, I'm back, and believe me, I have about 10 million posts swirling around in my head. I'm sure you'll get an earful or two in the next few days!
