It's been how long???

I can't believe I haven't blogged since April 19! Wow.

School's been going *very* well lately, knock on wood.

My husband had a safe trip to Africa for work. He's glad to be home. He was missed very much.
He was gone two weeks and worked in the desert. He said the "locals" were extremely warm, friendly and wonderful. The trip he dreaded wasn't so bad, except that it took forever to get there.

I killed my computer. Long story short, while he was in Africa our Norton's expired and when I renewed it I somehow got the 2003 version instead of the current version and we got hit and hit hard with viruses. My husband has been plugging away on the computer but hasn't got it fixed. We decided to back up everything I need (all my Word files and links) and reformat. I'll be busy this weekend.

In the mean time, trying to get time on the good computer that DH built has been futile. Both DH and DS are runescape addicts. The time I like to spend surfing is when DH is online. Argh. So until my old faithful is faithful once again, I'll be scarce.

I am starting to prepare for next year. I'm trying to get a bunch of one- to two-week science units prepared. Next to impossible when you don't have a computer!

For my Georgia Peach friend, we've been studying geology and really enjoying it. That "a rock is a rock is a rock" mentality has left my brain and I've actually enjoyed our studies as much as my son! This was the topic I really dreaded because I thought it would be so boring. I was wrong, I admit it.

Nothing else new in my corner of the world. I think that's a good thing. =-)

Will blog again if I ever get the good computer all to myself.

Glad to see you back! I am a huge planner as well, finding it is sometimes more fun than finishing the work! Please share your resources when you are able...I love throwing in science mini-units.

I wondered where you were. I missed you. I can sympathize with your computer woes.

Glad to hear school is going well.

Man and I thought you were on your way to clean my house! :(

Get that computer fixed and start posting woman! Don't do that to us again or I'll send Missy after you. That's scary right now because she's in the middle of moving so you KNOW she's ready to beat something up! ;)

I tried to post a comment yesterday and my computer wouldn't let me.

Hurry back, though you may as well enjoy the enforced break : )
