Good Morning Everyone!!

HI!!! I'm practically giddy! I think that Kenny (my sweetheart of a guy) may finally have the kinks worked out. He has spent the last 4 nights working on the computer. And, knock wood, it appears to be working. So how the hell have you all been????

Goodness, it's been a long time. I was able to change the background picture. I wanted something spring-y. The winter scene just wasn't cutting it anymore. I am done with winter. I'm so impatient for the upcoming season. I am ready for tulips and daisies. But, unfortunately, I can't remember the user name and password for my playlist right now. I requested an email giving them to me, but it hasn't arrived yet. So - please pardon the Christmas music playing in the back ground. WAIT - Tell you what....I'll move it to a spot lower in the page and it shouldn't play unless you pass by it.

I had 282 emails in my inbox this morning. Sorry guys - but I just deleted pages at a time. If you have sent me an email, I probably got it...but I deleted it. That was a little overwhelming. 18 pages of emails to go through? No way.

I received my bracelet and earrings (an extra bonus) from Shelbi yesterday. I won her giveaway and I couldn't be more excited. The bracelet is a little big but it still stays on. Hee hee! And the earrings are gorgeous. What a nice treat!! Even Austin commented on the earrings this morning. They were still sitting in the box on the dining room table. So, you know something is truly beautiful when your 14 year old son comments on them. I wore the bracelet last night. HA, I had on sweatpants and a Dierks Bentley T-shirt and this GORGEOUS and very delicate crystal bracelet. But I tell ya, the combination was working for me. Hee hee. Thank you again Shelbi for the beautiful creations. I absolutely LOVE them!!

Austin's infection has cleared up nicely. Thank you to everyone who said a prayer for him. He's such a handsome kid. And that huge 'thing' on the side of his nose looked just like a witch's wort. The kids who had picked on him when they just thought he had a huge pimple were very apologetic when he returned to school and found out what he actually had. I think it humbled them a little bit which is always a good thing. Ain't God slick? An old friend of mine used to say that all of the time. And it always seems appropriate.

Well, cats and kittens...that's about all for today. I wasn't expecting to be able to log on so I really had no post in mind. Just rambling today, I guess. I will have to work on a schedule for blogging again. HA HA HA! I've been away for so long...my routine had changed. And now I'll have to implement blogging again. But have no fear - I'm back!! Whoopee!! Love you!!

WOO HOOOOOOOO!! Yay! You're back. Yesterday I went through my paperwork to get our income taxes ready and I found your address. I was going to mail you a letter this morning telling you how much we all missed you. So glad Kenny got the computer working. What a great guy! Give him hugs from us. Blessings... Polly

Good Morning Julie,
"WELCOME BACK" dear friend. I have really missed you and having our coffee together in the mornings. I don't blame you for deleting all of those emails. I went to my email box before Christmas and cleaned out alot of mine as well. I'm so glad that Austin's MRSA got cleared up and that was so nice of the one's who made fun of him to apologize to him as well. I am so glad your hubby got your computer fixed. I know you are glad. Maybe you will get back to the swing of things before too long. I love your new header. It is beautiful. It is cold here this morning, but we still haven't gotten any Snow this winter. I guess I'm just going to have to come and visit you huh? LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

YaaaaaaaaaaaaaY! (insert whistle blowing and party poppers popping) you're finally back!! I saw your comment this morning on my blog, wasn't quite awake yet, sipping first cuppa, and had to do a double take as I couldn't believe it was really you! Then almost sloshed coffee all over the keyboard trying to rush over here to say hi sweetpea! So g'day Julie! Missed you! Hope you have a wonderful day...
