All Christmas stuff is put away and we got over the last batch of illnesses in time for the kids to start school last week. Colleen and Chris finished their antibiotics and Chris got over his skin infection (phew!).
Yesterday Ryan got sick. He’s had a temp for 2 days and he’s going to dr. today. I don’t feel great – hope I’m not coming down with it. Ironically my appt. for my migraines is Thursday so if I do get sick – good timing (as long as I’m not too sick to drive there!). Rog has been sick for 3 weeks (not in bed the whole time) and I’m trying to get him to the dr. It was not a bad time to be sick though as it’s the annual “no work” time at work – he hopes to have tons of work by next week as it looks like it’s piling up there to be assigned (he cleans as his own business the same office they assign work from).
What else? Yes, our older computer seems to have died – the one we got in 2000. I’m so glad we got this one (summer of 05) and managed to get everything transferred over, just about (it was acting up so I was worried and kept booting it for as long as it would stay booted and moved over the network). I tore it down and took downstairs to await someone having time to look at it that knows more than I do. I’m also getting my old computer back (the 1995 one) to set up for the kids downstairs.
After feeling temporarily very caught up after Christmas with everything neat and tidy, we brought like 30 boxes up here from the basement, garage, our old house, and Gayle’s. YIKES! I feel like I just moved in again. And there’s more coming. All the boxes from my mother’s have yet to come (17 huge rubbermaid bins, she says, plus massive amounts of bags), and also everything out of our attic at the other house, the shed, and probably 10-20 more boxes out of the main floor of the house over there.
I’m so glad we don’t have to do this again for YEARS!
going to do a few more dishes and maybe go lay down with Ryan for a while…..
