Catch up!!

I have been without a computer for the last two weeks. Our computer Chris got for school finally decided to quit working like it should. Thanks to reading Alisons blog a while ago, we kindof knew what to do. Of all times to do this ! There are so many things that has happened and I have to admit sometimes blogging is the only way I feel like I'm linked with the rest of the world . It has been a crazy two weeks. the day before the computer problems Chris decided his Jeep was not going to work much longer so he thought we should go car shopping. Me, being the always looking to the future girl, decided that if we were going to get a car we should get a car that we can fit three carseats in (no I'm not pregnant just looking to the future). So I am now officially a mini van mom. I never wanted to have a mini van but unfortunatly that is all we can afford right now. Although, I do have to admit it is nice and roomy. So the next day I go to turn on the computer and nothing. I thought of Alisons blog and she had a picture of Jeff with a flashlight to the computer saving all their info. So I ran for a flashlight. Sure enough the backlighting had gone out. I guess it could have been worse. I took it over to the geek squad and they told us it would probably be a couple hundred dollars to fix. Long story short we decided the computer was old enough we should suck it up and buy a new one. We are still dealing with computer issues like our DMU laptop is currently hooked up to our new moniter while we wait for our wireless stuff to be installed in another week. What a pain! On another note, other than the no computer thing We had a pretty good week . Ty started swim lessons that a couple of the girls in the ward were teaching. They did lessons everyday last week so I got a nice tan while watching Ty learn to blow bubbles in the water and telling his teachers that he just blew bubbles so he did'nt need to do it again. What a frustraiting thing to watch! By friday he was doing better I hope when he starts his next set of lessons He will be more comfortable in the water. The other good thing about swim lessons the kiddos would play for a little while after lessons and would come home for a three hour nap. LOVELY! Last thing worth reporting, tonight is Chris' last night of night rotations for a while. It will be nice to have help agian. Pictures to come I just wanted to update a little before Chris came home and wanted to sleep. I hope you have a great monday!

Well, I'm glad you're getting settled and glad you have a computer again. It was so great hanging out with you when you were here. I miss you!

I am sorry the computer finally died but at least you knew what to do (from reading our blog...see blogging is GREAT!!). We bought a used one from a friend. And yes, I went crazy until we could use it. It was good seeing you in Utah as well :)
