Oh boy! Am I in the dog house with all you guys! And I don't blame you one bit. When I optimistically posted that I'd be getting all caught up last Saturday, I didn't take into consideration my family.

I had the youngest daughter writing a final paper,and the eldest daughter had to spend every waking, non-working minute on studying for her anatomy/physiology/microbiology classes that have finals this week, and of course, a large portion of her studies involve powerpoint notes from the teacher and a digital textbook.

And then there was the frantic search for a new car, since the eldest daughter also sold her truck much more quickly than she anticipated, so hubby has been online car shopping every time the computer was open. I'd sit down to start a post and not 90 seconds would pass before I'd hear, "are you almost done? I need the computer?"

I gave up and decided that I'd just do my thing on Monday when everyone was gone. And then my video on the computer died. Arrgghh!

It took a little while to diagnose, I thought it was the video card, but I took my monitor to my neighbors and it was dead there as well, bought a new monitor Monday night, and then sat down yesterday to get caught up! Yay!

Then I heard, "are you almost done? I need the computer!" The eldest was off all day yesterday and planned on studying ALL day for last night's test! Oh double arrghh! I gotta buy myself a laptop! (She thinks she aced the test though...*grin) She's got another test tomorrow, but until noon today, the computer is MINE!!! After tomorrow night, schools out for at least a couple of weeks, and I'm looking forward to not sharing the computer so much! What did we all do without computers??

So-with no further whining, bitching and complaining and with a hearty THANK YOU for your patience...here's some of the giveaway winners!!
