Many projects

Today is a slow day kid wise, but not project wise! I am trying to help out a friend, their computer crashed and they used Outlook Express as their email. I was in the process of getting them switched over to a Yahoo email address, but I was not quick enough. They can't remember the password and now I am working on figuring out how to access the address book. So far I have found how to back up the address book, but not about what to do if you forgot your password.
I'm also trying to get a song typed up for Awana tonight. I say try because last week we had everything ready and then we get to church and the computer will not work. It must have been the month for computers because we know of about three other computers that crashed! K and another friend got together and worked on it a bit and it seems to be running now, so we'll see! Not to mention the song is recorded from an old tape to a cd so it is not the easiest to understand!
I am feeling a bit better with my cold today. I am still pretty congested but I don't feel so tired. Hopefully I am on the downslide with this!
Well, I better keep working or it won't get done....have a geat day all!

Hello and kid funnies!

I meant to blog yesterday, but the kids kept me so busy I didn't get a chance to....and after the kids left the cold I have really kicked in and I was so tired! I got the laundry done and folded and I went to bed about nine!
I should buy stock in Kleenex!
I haven't gotten alot except for the laundry done in the last couple of weeks, so I really need to get some things done tomorrow! I only have two kids tomorrow and they are older kids so hopefully I can get them done!
Today was one of those days with the kids...T didn't take a nap, which is really strange for him and we are working on potty training Mr. Tater...well, I caught him trying to poop and after getting him on the potty and him proceeding to have a melt down I put his diaper back on, I figured that it wasn't worth tormenting him. I kept an eye on him and when he did go, oh. my. word. He had it up his back, down his legs, in his socks! I took everything off and wiped him down a bit and immediately took him up for a bath! He was happily splashing in the tub and I look down and asked him, "Tater, Why??" He looks up at me with those great big eyes and says..."Because!" I just had to laugh! His other recent funny was on Friday. I was supposed to have the day off and I was going to clean, but his Dad called and said that Mom was sick, and I agreed to take him. Well, I wasn't getting my house cleaning done and Tater found the dust on the tv and I told him not to play in the dust and he looks at me with his hands out and says "It butaful!!"

Catching up

Things are getting a bit better around here...the weather has been a big help. I am still struggling with a few things, some of it real life that I really can't post here. I have to say that I have a great group of friends, in real life and here on the computer, and I am very thankful for all of you!
I am staying busy...this weekend we did some spring cleaning in the house. We cleaned carpets and folded laundry, cleaned the bathrooms and did some tax preparation, it has been a productive weekend!
Last weekend we had a Ladies Day Away at church, where we all get together and have home made cinnamon rolls for breakfast, do our crafting or other projects, have a salad lunch, and more crafting. Some wonderful ladies there were reteaching me how to crochet and I have now almost finished a scarf and started an afghan in crochet.
I have been reading your blogs and keeping up, and I hope to start posting regularly again...sorry for being so dramatic and a pain in the neck!
