FINAL THOUGHTS:  My hubby has needed the computer this last week to study and work on projects for work.  Needless to say, my projects get to go on the side burner!!  :(  I'm going to be working on getting more access to it this week to actually get some things posted, because I actually have quite a bit!  In the meantime, I will be working on taxes in the hopes to get a little bit of refund to go towards another computer!  One computer with wireless access is just not enough anymore!!

Hope you enjoy the final week of the Olympics! 


  1. Thanks for the mention and I'm going to keep adding dates to the calendar so that we can have some major celebrations!

  2. I just checked out The Forest of Hands and Teeth from the library. I am praying I can read it before I have to return it.

  3. Kristen M. . . . You are so welcome!! Did you get the dates that I posted? I didn't know if they qualified or not, but thought I would share anyways!!

    J. Kaye . . . I'm still listening to it! I haven't had access to my car where I usually listen to it, so it is taking me a while to get through it. And, I really want to get through it! I like what I've heard so far!
