WOW - finally got three of the computers working on the Fiber Optics and they are FAST....now to get the wireless working so I can Skype.

The day began with a chaplain spouse breakfast at Anette's, our Wing Chaplain's wife. Thanks again Anette...what a wonderful way to begin the day.

Home by 9:45 for school.

The kids walked to the pond with jars to collect water for Jared's science experiment. Arielle took a video "clip"....5 min long so I won't post it....but I'm dying to try clips soon. Maybe I'll do a home tour for y'all next week. LOL

Tried to sort through lots and lots of email.

Tried to get the other computers working - no luck. They KNOW Mike's touch.

Nice afternoon visit with Windy.

Ordered some things from the TX co-op. Set up pay pal, offered to let other locals order with me....

Drank a couple gallons of water and took lots of cranberry tablets.

We have a home phone now. I'm not sure it is working but we have a phone and a number...Mike is deciphering the hiragana directions. ::snort:: Our prefix is different than everyone else we know (except Rodney and Windy).

I'll try to catch up on a few more blogs before I go to bed....maybe just Cindy's as it is FULL of new updates since I was on.

That's a day!

Sis:

Good to hear of all the progress being made in your lives. About time and what a story to tell.

To bad we didn't have cranberry tablets when you were a small kid and forever. :(

hope to get to school by 6 today.

love/prayers --- Mom T.

Linda - shabby blogs.com totally free. I think thats the url - but click the icon at the top left for a link.

Niki - I asked Deja to be in charge of paying and shipping it to me. I set up Pay Pal. I'll pay pal the total order amount to them so they have it before things arrive. I've also set in motion pay pal for at least $100 to Deja so she has a reserve to ship things priority to me and I'll replenish that as needed. I'm trying NOT to order convenience food (cookies, crackers, mac and cheese) and get the "essentials" I can't get - flax seed, gluten, almond butter.....AhLaska hot chocolate (as all here has dye and flavor).....I think this is o.k. with Kim and Heather as they'll be paid before they order and Deja will collect the food and do the shipping. I am simply filling the excel spreadsheet as normal.

SO GOOD TO HAVE INTERNET AGAIN - 6 months transition is a long time for a MOVE. LOL
