Let it be known that I AM alive and well. Let it also be known that I am still without my laptop and even my old, ancient backup laptop. I have been demoted to our old PC upstairs that the kids use for their games and Webkinz and it is highly inconvenient. I come up to use it and within 10 minutes my children sound like they are killing each other from the sounds of the screaming and yelling. For the record, DFS frowns on your children killing each other. Trust me on this.
I would so love to share photos of my trip to Carey's but this dog gone computer won't upload them from my camera. Grrr... I can tell you that I had a wonderful time. Carey is delightful, as are her funny husband Scott and her darling boys Jack and Logan. I can also tell you that I got lots of sleep. Since Emma didn't have her bed to contain her at night, I had to lay down with her to get her to go sleep. I learned something at Carey's house.
Denise + Dark Room + Laying Down = Denise goes to sleep
Yes, I'm that sleep deprived. Or I'm that old. Let's go with sleep deprived.
I have also found something else out about myself since coming home and being computer deprived: When I'm computer deprived I get more house work done.
Yes, I've gone off the deep end.
While you all have been Facebooking and blogging, I've been shampooing the carpet in my van and organizing closets. The horror!!! I even went to Hobby Lobby and bought baskets to organize my stuff. And they were 50% off. But I didn't use a coupon. (Sorry Brandy!)
Trace has been working on my laptop and he claims he should have it fixed by Saturday night when I come home. I'm leaving tomorrow to go pick up Julia from her friend's in Tennesse and coming back home on Saturday. Yes, I'm driving 16 hours in 2 days with 3 small children and 8 hours with 2 middle school girls. Pray for me. Also pray that Trace has my laptop done. Momma needs to blog.
