Thank you all so much for the sweet and supportive comments you left yesterday. They all touched my heart in ways you will never know. I managed to read a few blogs yesterday afternoon after watching my cousin's baby for a few hours. A seven-month old baby is QUITE different from my children. And it's been a while since someone required my complete attention like he did. Good thing he's a happy baby. His father forgot all of his toys. But he enjoyed my back massager which is made of a hard acrylic and shaped like an octopus. We had a ball playing with each other. I think I gave a million or so kisses.
Anyway, about last night. After Joseph left, I started to read a few blogs. And I noticed that sessions were popping up without prompting. I exited out of all of them, including the ones I launched and waited for my husband to come home and take a look-see. There were 487 infected files and 3 viruses. NICE! So the Spyware Doc pulled out his handy black bag and got to work. It took a better portion of the evening to scan and correct. At about 9 or so, everything was corrected and he said, you can get on now. HA! I was quite comfortable on the couch and was reacquainting myself with the back of my eyelids. So I apologize for not visiting everyone yesterday. ESPECIALLY since everyone left such positive and heartfelt comments for me. Today I will be shopping with my mother for a present for my father. So again, I'm not sure when I'll be on. But know that if I were here (and able) I would be commenting!
Have you seen this? Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in a federal prison. No, it will not be the conventional cell block prison, but I'm still calling this a victory! I love animals, as evidenced by my 6 resident cats. I grew up with dogs. I don't watch movies where I know something will happen to an animal. Unless you count Old Yeller which was shown in the 5th grade at school and I had no choice. Seems that today, with all the violence on TV and in the news, you become desensitized to human cruelty. But cruelty to animals never ceases to strike a nerve with me. To take part in such atrocious behavior, to derive pleasure out of torturing an animal makes you the biggest degenerate in my eyes. Shame on you Michael Vick! Shame on you for letting down all of those young children who looked up to you.
And DON'T FORGET! Tomorrow is Karla's 'What Do You Love About Your Holiday Home' tour. I can't wait to see everyone's homes and share mine with you also!
