Not too bad. The medicine seems to be helping. Every day seems to be a little better.

Good morning!

Corey has been reading about a lot of issues with Windows 8, shutting down all the time. I wish I could get a laptop with Windows 7.

Usually they will give the info. Don't forget to ask about the measurements!

I don't understand why Microsoft would launch a product that clearly doesn't work properly.

I'm about to sit down and "fix" that darn computer by myself. J told me to watch YouTube and see how it works! Seriously? That did not earn him any points!

I just found some articles on windows 8 on gateway systems. It sounds like I'm not the only one with issues. Nor am I the only one who can't figure out how to turn off the darn thing! And yes, I read articles. I did not go YouTube.

Good morning!

Micki, I'm glad you feel better.

I want a new laptop, but now I'm a little afraid to get one if Windows 8 is so bad.

Corey hasn't had issues with his shutting down, but I made him switch to google chrome for his browser.

Corey's is an HP, so I don't know if it is different from yours or not. He goes to the upper right corner and a menu pops up, then you go to Settings, and then Power to shut it down.


Windows 8 is just so different than everything we've had before. I guess you can get an app to get the start menu like we are used to, but it is $5 a month or something.

Good Morning! I've got a list of things I want to get done today, Jeff is doing our taxes and the kids will all be finishing their Fastsa's this week.

I will be bringing wedding invites to the mingle if anyone needs something to do

Gladly, since so many helped me.

2 patients, neither very sick or needy.

It is snowing constantly here. I will have to dig out tonight.

Debra, sounds like a good use of the day. I am glad they offer resources like that.

Thanks for all the help with the computer. J bought a Gateway. I told him he can call Gateway or take this darn thing back to the store and buy a different brand.

I think the biggest hurdle with 8, everything is hidden. You have to right click and chase down secret buttons.

Still cleaning. Dishes done, livingroom picked up and dusted, beds made, more paperwork done. Surprising the amount of paperwork that can pile up if not addressed on a daily basis.

Alexis is doing her part too. So far she's picked up and put away her toys, made her bed, dusted, taken out compost and is currently cleaning the slider. The girl is earning some points today.

I've pinned, popped balloons, pinned some more, answered a few call bells, popped more balloons, eaten continuously, and had about 3 cups of coffee trying to stay awake. Pulling my book out soon.

Not a bad day's work, Lisa.

I've done nothing today. Power went out for a while so I took a nap. My brother called and they've changed our dinner reservation to an earlier time because my nephew was able to leave work early. So soon I'll be heading to my brother's house.

House chores done. Small grocery trip done. Now, I have a free hour.

At the grocery store, I had a moment when I thought the Mingle was next weekend! I got all giddy for nothing.

This nap thing you speak of, is it similar to the stamping thing you speak of?

I need a new do. My hair is not being my friend. I'm almost ready to cut it all off, again.

I have to bowl, tonight.

I'm actually laying on the couch. I can't remember the last time I did this.

One more thing before I head out.....I'm looking to find a new home for my ink pad storage tower. It's a rotating tower. It holds 60 single stacked ink pads, up to 120 double stacked pads. It also has space to store ink refills, cartridges and markers, all next to the pad. There are two drawers and two storage shelves on the bottom and a deep, storage well on the top. I paid $135. I'd like $70, but I'll consider a reasonable offer. I can deliver it at the Mingle. Currently, I have it on the floor, because its about three feet tall. I can attach pictures, if needed.

I am so sad. I just realized I totally missed the birthday month to place my birthday order. Between work, Alexis' activities, doctor appts and not feeling well I hadn't thought about it.

Cleaning is almost done. I only have mopping left to do. Had to take a break, my foot and hip were starting to bother me. I have more paperwork to do so it's not like I still can't be productive.

Micki, sorry you missed your birthday month. I don't think they do that now. Your first order, first item is the extra discount.

I think it's time for me to take some tylenol and a nap. Having a hard time keeping my eyes open and it's too early to go to bed.

I just got home from stamping with Yvonne and Barb! And a quick trip to Meijer. I was so looking forward to chilling out in the peace and quiet tonight. Just sat down, seriously, just sat down. And Ben pulls in the drive. It's not that I don't love the man, but dang, he is so LOUD!
