You may have noticed - all text and no pictures . . . .  N2 has been playing with my camera and I take it back from him and hide it so he can't mess with it - and then forget where I put it . . . also - when we came back from WA this summer, I had my battery charger, user manual, and connect-the-camera-to-the-computer cord all together in a baggie - that I put 'safely' away.  Now it looks like 'safely' away = lost!!!!  Wouldn't it be cool if I could just inexpensively replace those items?  Quickly.  But no - first I have to find the camera and then order parts over the Internet, and by then it will be the 5/6 the cost of replacing the camera. . . . or I could upgrade . . . yeah . . .  a new, better camera . . .  oooohhhhh Santa . . . .

What am I doing today?  well, we have been going to a church I really like, but that N1 doesn't - there are no other children there his age, so I have been church hunting - but I think I'll be putting that on hold for a while - maybe picking up with it next year.  So, what am I going to do today?  Go to church, go grocery shopping, come home and put up our Thanksgiving decorations (my mom just sent us a bunch!).  Then the rest of the week - cooking and cleaning.  And if there is any spare time - I'll be writing Christmas cards!!!!  How about you?

Today: G goes to work at Nanalysis, N1 goes to his Starting Points class at St. Bede, N2 goes to pre-school and I clean house!  Pop in  some laundry, a book on tape and take down Halloween decorations and clean, organize and maybe bake something . . . ?  We are having the MOMS Club over this afternoon for a planning meeting - have company - best way I've found to clean house!!

I really want to do this - I really want to keep a blog - I read this other blog, Sunny Side Up, and she keeps her blog as a family scrapbook - and I want to do the same thing - but there is so much yet to learn!!! Like inserting photos in the right places - stuff like that . . .  and logging in becomes tricky, because my email address has changed since I started the blog . . . . so, trying to figure out how to change that - the more I write the more I realize I am so much more verbal than anything - so this is such a good exercise for me!!!   But - for heavens sake - I have a very expensive private women's university education - I'm a Hollins Girl - so I can so figure this out!!!  Just watch me.

All righty - 9 months!!!! it has been 9 months since I last posted on this blog, and by now, all 6 of my subscribers have moved on and have given up hope of ever hearing anything about us again!  Well, my new goal is to be a better correspondent.  I can do this.  Lots of folk do, and I can too -  it is a GREAT way to keep family and friends informed about our lives and how we are doing.
So, I am resolved and determined to master this!!!!
I'm not going to promise every day, but maybe 3 times a week at least a lot more than once every 9 months!!!
