Happy Holidays

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know we did. We got to spend time with some of Derek's family and some of my family. This morning Emmy and I put up the Christmas tree. Later we got some candy canes at the store and Andy and Emmy put those up. The stockings are hanging, the mistletoe is up, the bell in on the door handle. Yes, Christmastime has finally come. Now it's time to figure out what the heck I am doing for gifts!

I Thought This Generation was Good with Computers

Sometimes I get so mad at my kids. Recently, Derek dropped his computer and the screen broke. We had a cord to connect the computer to a TV, so he started using his computer that way all the time. That was fine with me; I still had my computer. A few days after Derek's screen got broken Emmy broke my screen by slamming it shut and banging the mouse on it. So, two computers, one cord. Not so good. I made Derek buy a second cord so I could be in the living room on this TV and he could be in the game room on that TV. Okay. Today Andrew dropped my computer on the floor at just the right angle to rip the cord out of it to break the cord. Wonderful. Two computers, one cord, one angry mother. This is why we can't have nice things.
