Because so much is kinda going on, it's time for another this and that post. Yes, I still can't come up with a stinkin' title for these things.
Yesterday we decided it was time for an upgrade and said good-bye to our outdated PC. The PC served its purpose while we had it, and a friend had given it to us since she barely used it. Now upon our desktop sits a Toshiba laptop. YAY!! I love Toshiba and I love laptops and ever Toshiba we have ever had has lasted us a LONG time.
Anyway, it is Windows 7, so it's super fast compared to XP, which we used to browse on. It even has a webcam....so...I'm hoping to do a video shortly. I played around with it today and it's pretty cool. I love technology.
Next topic up...we're getting our garage torn down. Thanks to the help of our terrific neighbor, K. He was a close friend of Dad's and he is really more like family than a neighbor. He also helped us move Dad's '47 Plymouth, or as we call her The Baby, to be stored while our garage is being rebuilt. I honestly don't know what we'd do without all of our friends. We really are so blessed.
Reading "Crossing Oceans" by a new author Gina Holmes. It's not too bad. I like the protagonist and it's not super preachy like spiritual fiction usually is. This comes across realistic and even endearing. If I like it by the end, I'll try and do a review on it. It's been a while since I've done a book review. I normally steer clear of spiritual fiction, because they just seem to be so unrealistic....anyone else feel the same way? Which is why when I write I try to do the opposite. I do my best to bring the reality back into fiction.
On another note, as in my last post I was pretty dejected about my whole weight loss situation. I was able to lose some, but sort of fell off the exercise wagon, yes again, because I was doing a lot of work Fri and Sat to help with the garage and The Baby. So I need to get my butt in gear and get back to Tae-Bo tomorrow. :::crosses fingers:::
Finally, also in my last post, I was getting advice on usernames for Twitter. I really appreciate all of your input. However, silly me forgot to see if the usernames I came up with were even available. Which they weren't, naturally. So check the Twitter tab at the top of the page and it'll bring you to my page which shows you my choice on a username.
I hope your Monday has gone well, I'm not much of a Monday person. I always look forward to TGIF!
