Lazy Afternoon

Remember when my computer died shortly before Christmas?  Well, I don't know all the computer jargon, but apparently the only way to salvage it was to wipe it clean and start over with a non-Windows operating system.  Craig has been trying for years to switch over to Linux, because that's what all the computer geeks use, and he's a computer geek wannabe.  I have always protested, but apparently I'm stuck with it for now. (I think maybe he saw this as an a opportunity, and might be exaggerating about the "necessity" of it.)

So far, what that means is that a) I can't print coupons, and b) I can't use Windows Live Writer.  Blogger has improved their photo uploading procedure since I first started blogging, but I still prefer WLW.  A lot.  You should check it out if you haven't already.

Today is the last day of Christmas break for the kids.  Everything is back to normal tomorrow, although Firstborn has a sore throat, and hopefully I'm not in for a week of sick kids at home. This afternoon Pinkerbelle and I are going to watch the American Girl Samantha movie I got at the library.  She doesn't very often get to watch purely girly shows, because movie night must appeal to all the kids.  I'm making an exception today and the boys can either like it or lump it.

I'm off to snuggle with my girl!

I didn't know there is a Samantha movie!!! I bet my 5 yr. old would love it. :)

Going on out a you think you'd ever be able to do a tutorial on WLW?? I've heard good things, but am scared to try it b/c I don't know how set-up works or how to use it. :s

I adore WLW. It takes me forever to write a post with Blogger and I can do one quickly with WLW.

I would like to see the Samantha movie myself. Let us know if it is good!

I really will have to check out Windows Live Writer. I've vaguely heard of it before but I haven't used it.

I hope you've had an adorable snuggly time with your daughter!

Holly- I am a bit of a computer geek as well. Late last year I moved my blog to WordPress. Someday you might consider... it's a lot more customizable.

Poor Firstborn! Hope he's feeling better! My oldest has had fever/sore throat and I was facing the same situtation, luckily she started back today with the rest of them. WOO HOO!

So sorry about your computer! I'm anything but a computer nerd. I WISH I was a computer nerd, I'm a computer dunce!

I hope he is doing better! Also hope you had a great time snuggling.

I hope you are having a great New Year too! I need to get with you about advertising - I've been a total slacker, but I'm back on track!
