Hi-dee-ho Neighbors!

I wish I was writing to say our laptop was able to be repaired, or that we got a new one... but no dice.

However, my darling kids are settled back at school! 

The summer ended on a high note!  We had my nephew Dill visit for 10 days and it was lots of fun! 

The kids had a constant flow of friends here, and many sleepovers!

Even last weekend, after school started I had 2 spares for most of the weekend!  No complaints!  I adore these kids as if they were my own! 

I am hopeful that soon we will have the good fortune to replace the laptop.  Especially now that the kids need computers for homework so much more than before! 

I am missing you all and I am hoping to start catching up on journals soon.

I am doing well.  It has been a tough few weeks with hurricane remnants wandering through, but I am hoping that after Ike's dregs pass us over the weekend, that we all will be spared any more of that!

May this entry find you all with as many blessings to count as I have in my life...

be well,
Dawn

I know its hectic getting the kids resettled back into school. Sorry that you are having so much trouble with your laptop, Joe's caught a virus, but one of our friends was able to wipe everything out and start everything again to get rrid of it. Now Joe says that his computer has "lost" its personality..lol.....be welll, Sandi

Dawn, welcome back. I to did really miss you. Good to have the kids back in school? Maybe you can get a couple of good naps now. Isn't it horrible to not have access to the journals. I would go nuts without this outlet. Have a good day and buckl;e up for Ike. We got a heck of a strom, in the Philly area, yesterday about 11 AM. Toronado warning and the whole bit. Bill

Welcome back, Dawn, it's good to see your post. Hope indeed you won't get anymore hurricanes or what's left of them.

Well, hello, Dawn!  I was just checking your journal the other day to see if I had missed an alert.  Hoping that you get hooked up with a new laptop soon.  Is your kitchen all done?  Take care and stay dry.  HUGS Chris

I always love it when you talk about your kids and the "spares" that gravitate to you. My Regards, Bill

I kept thinking I hadn't heard anything from you lately. Seems you beat me to the punch and explained why, before you ended up with an enquiring email from me. I hope you are able to get another laptop soon! I miss you! (Hugs)Indigo

I've been wondering about you!  Glad to know that all is well, and I hope you get that laptop replaced soon.  Mine has gone kaput, too, but I still have my desktop.  Take care, and hope to hear from  you soon.
