Hey everyone!! I have been 'missing in action' lately, but not by choice. My computer decided to go nuts several days ago! Thankfully, I have a son that knows his stuff about computers and he was able to get us up and running again~whew! Not having a computer is like living in a foreign country! Well, maybe not so drastic as that, but I admit, I feel lost without one:)

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great! I really enjoyed being with my family, but forgot to take my camera, so no pictures. The day after Thanksgiving (a.k.a. Black Friday) I braved the crowds for the first time in my life! I am really NOT someone who loves to shop, so this was a real feat for me. My daughter (14) and I went together and had a blast. I did NOT go out at some awful, ridiculously early hour though! I felt like I was doing well enough just to get out there at all. We found some good sales and really had fun together.Some people may think this is awful, but I'm letting my kids do their own shopping this year. They are old enough that they don't mind knowing what they are getting, AND it saves having to return a bunch of stuff. My middle son went out at 3am to get his!! Letting my teens shop for themselves will hopefully make the season a little less stressful and tiring for me and they love doing it this way.

I don't have any pictures today, but will hopefully be back to normal soon, now that I have a computer:) I was thinking the other day how sad it is that we are SO dependent on technology. In light of that, I may not be posting as often, or I may just try to make my post short and sweet. I just don't want this to take up time that I could be reading my Bible or other important things.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying the season!

  1. When I'm unable to be on the internet,I feel nervous all day, unsettled. And I miss talking with my friends. Happy you have a talented son! I love Black Fridays. I do little shopping that day, but enjoy the decorations. The excitement in the air is contagious. I get ideas for gifts. I didn't go this year. Something is missing for me! I'm sure your daughter enjoyed herself too!
