All reduced to a hand sized hard drive...

Got my laptop back today... okay, I didn't but I got the external hard drive they made from it. I'm a tad afraid to look. What if they missed something?! Trying to remain calm... I don't think I'm in any condition to look at it today. I had my third day of headaches. In an effort to conserve my precious migraine medicine I popped 4 ibuprofen instead. My stomach isn't happy with that decision...

The kids and I planted a cherry tomato plant, a golden Roma tomato plant and a cayenne pepper plant today. John planted a whole lotta grass seed. Hopefully the greedy robin gets full soon so some of it will have a chance to germinate.

Oh, and I got a bunch of new fabric today! It's already all washed, dried and folded. (See photo above.) I also got 3 yards of an extra wide cloud looking flannel that I'm going to use to make new curtains for the kids room. Hope it works out how I envision it.

Winding down now. Johnna has already drifted off to sleep after her chicken and fries. Waiting for John to get home with our meal. Love me some Asian Express on a Friday night! :)

Lots to do this weekend... I'll update on my progress soon!

R.I.P Dear Laptop...

My laptop died.
Well, not all the way. The on and off button still works... but that's about it.
Only $950 dollars to fix it! (Not happening.) Not including the $190 I paid for a copy of the hard drive. (Worth every penny.) I guess there will be a new computer somewhere in my future. I'm not very happy about this but I'm also not rushing out to buy a new one right now.

On a happier note... I have a fabric order scheduled to arrive tomorrow! Yay! I'll post pics if I can figure out how to upload them to my dear husband's computer. Actually I guess I'll have to figure that out whether I want to or not! :)

Haven't felt well today. And the kids fighting hasn't made me feel any better. I did do some cleaning... always so much more to do. But we are going to have a nice evening come hell or high water. Homemade nachos are on the menu and the Wipeout (John's favorite show) season finale is on tonight. Throw in a hot bath, some Angry Birds (Jacob is really, really good at it) and all will be right with the world.

Until next time...
