I'm Back

I'm Back in a small way tonight.  This week has been so crazy busy for me.  My husband is doing very well from his cancer surgery and will be getting ready for the next treatment and then we hope that will be the end of this story!!  My Mom had open heart Surgery on Monday, 5 bi-passes and a Maze procedure.  She is feeling well enough to feel lousy, at her 80+ years she is making an amazing recovery.  I would say her actual age, but since I have two sisters that might be reading this and this disclosure might get back to her, I will play it safe......  So I am very thankful, all is well with my mother and my husband.   I want to thank everyone for all the prayer and encouragement!!  It has made all the difference!
Now on the techno side, I must have the electronic death plague on my finger tips.   First my smart phone, (I don't know why they call it a smart phone, it spells worse than I do!!) locked up, froze, to the point where Google told me the next thing to try was a four iron on the back nine!  So I went to Verizon and they were able to drop it into a hat, when they pulled it out it worked, well the rabbit in that hat wiped my hard drive 'En Toto'.  Of course it wasn't backed up, so you know the rest of that story...
and on Monday, while spending 16 hours in the hospital, my PC crashed. Blue screen of death in 5 shades.  Steve is an expert, but there was no bringing that baby back.  Now I know it is only a computer, but I am inappropriately attached to my computer.  It started  45 years ago when I flunked penmanship - it is the only thing I am worse at than spelling!!  In 1996 I got my first PC, and it came with a word processor called Ami-Pro.  Anyone remember that?  Well I purchased fonts and did what I always dreamed of doing - calligraphy  and since then my PC has been my right hand so to speak.    Since my PC was toast, Steve rigged up my lap top to give me a command central set up.  I can now work and watch a video, or work and blog.  This is so cool!!


Of course I've had to spend hours trying to relocate everything but I'm back in business so to speak. 

Speaking of business, I'm doing a huge workshop tomorrow
 night, these are for brand new stampers. here are my sample cards:  I know I have a new photo program and I need to learn how to use it!

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to readjust things in my computer land! Ginny
