Bone Tired but Happy

My computer seems to be working fine now. I am glad that I didn't have to take it back. I guess all I needed to do was completely install the AT&T Yahoo installer and I was able to get on line. All those hours, yes I said hours of talking to all the different techs in India. I thought I was going to lose it but I was determined to get back on line. I am doing the happy dance.

I am also very happy because we had my hubby's 50th birthday party. It was so much fun but I am glad it is over. It started at 2pm Saturday and just ended around 7 pm Sunday. I had family sleep over and then we watched the Bears game which they lost in overtime. I think about 50 friends and family showed up. 

I will have to download the pictures when I am not so tired. I am so ready to hit the sheets early tonight.   Well, I have so much to say about the party but I can't seem to concentrate right now. Have a great evening.

Back On, but not for long

Well, I am happy to be back on line but I have to return my tower because my Internet Explorer is not working. I was able to get on yesterday and today using my AT&T Yahoo installer. I would have to reinstall it every day in order to get on so I don't want to do that. I was talking to Compaq for 3 hours, can you believe that. It took 3 hours and nothing was resolved but to return my tower. They offered to send a box so I could send it back but I told them I would just return it to where I bought it and get a new one. I might be able to do it tomorrow but we are having a big birthday party for my hubby on Saturday and I am not sure I will have time this week.

I hope to be making tons of entries once I am completely back on. I hope you week is going better than mine.

Take Care

Spring Time in Illinois


Thanks Missie for the beautiful spring tag.



These are the 2 dresses we bought for my daughter. The first one she is going to wear for class night and the second one is for graduation.

The pictures don't do them justice. They are so beautiful. When we got to the mall we went to Sears first. We didn't really see anything but long prom dresses. The next store we went to was JC Penney's. We didn't see anything there. My daughter had to call her friend to see which store they went to the other day that had the dress she wanted. We went over to Carson's and found these. I was so happy with here choices. She tried them on and looked like a princess. We didn't get shoes or purse yet. The dresses cost enough for now.

My daughter is spending the night at her friend's house. She went to a skating park with her today. I am thinking of getting into my pj's and just relaxing for the rest of the night.

I finished planting all of my herb, vegetable and flower seeds in pots. I can't wait to plant them in the garden. Here is a picture of our empty garden.
My husband build a pond on the other side of our garage. I am not sure if I showed the picture last year. He is still going to be working on it this year because we have a leak somewhere and he can't find it.


Well, I am missing my program Big Brother so you all have a wonderful evening.

Happy Easter

I just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Easter. My hubby had to work until 2:30. We had a nice quiet dinner at 5:30. I made a roast with mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, broccoli, mushrooms and biscuits. I am so ready for bed now but I am going to wait because if I go to bed this early I will be up 4 am.

My daughter and I are going shopping for 2 dresses. One for class night and one for graduation. I can't believe she is graduating 8th grade. Time sure does fly. I am probably going to have her 14th birthday party and graduation party together. She graduates May 22nd and her birthday is June 1st. We are probably going to have the party at my sister-in-laws trailer park. They have 2 big pools and horseback riding. We may even have a sleepover in tents. It sounds like fun.

I have been feeling a lot better lately. I am still pretty down about my weight but I know eventually I will get my mind back into it.

Well, I have a big day tomorrow at the mall and to finish planting all my vegetable and flower seeds indoors. I already have my chili peppers sprouting up so I thought I would try to start a lot of my plants from seed.
