pc whoas~

Oh goodness, gracious, gravy nurse....  I just spent the better part of the day reformatting and partitioning my hard drive.  If it gives me another week of computer use... all is good.  Oh I hope Santa finds it in his heart to get me a new computer ~ but realistically speaking... that isn't going to happen.

Dear Hubby got the news that he has to go to South Carolina in the next two weeks... I think he leaves the day after his birthday.  He knew he was going to have to make the trip down there for work; but was hoping it would fall on his scheduled work days.  Now, come to find out it's going to fall on his days off.  He's not too happy about that.  I don't blame him. 

Wow... just look at the calendar... less than 3 weeks to Christmas.  I haven't even started yet to buy gifts or to decorate.  I'm in such a ho hum instead of ho ho ho mood. 

I did volunteer my time and dish pan hands for the community Christmas dinner again this year on Christmas Day.  So I'll be there on the 25th almost all day long.  It's alright though, because we do Christmas Eve over by my Mom's and we aren't celebrating our Christmas here at the house until the 26th ~ when my granddaughter Amanda can make it home with us. 

Last night we had a meeting for the Justin Donner Memorial Fisheree; which is held the last Saturday of January.  The JPD Warrior Project is growing into a pretty big and popular event in our area :).  I have to get on to the website tonight yet (while my computer is working) and make some updates to it. 

What else is new around here?  Not much.... Slim made supper tonight... that was a perk!  Although, if you ask him he'll tell you it was the worse meal he ever cooked.  He beer battered and deep fried some walleye fillets.  He kind of rushed them and crowded them in the fryer and most of the batter fell off.  They were a bit greasy; but still pretty tasty.  The whole platter got cleaned up, so they couldn't have been that bad.  I was just happy not having to cook. 

The guys also worked a good part of the day getting the runners on to the ice fishing shanty.  Hopefully, they'll be pulling it out on the ice in a few weeks.  If this cold weather keeps up we should have some pretty good ice on the lakes by then. 

well... I suppose I better get into gear and get over to the website and make those updates...
Have a great day my cyberspace friends!

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.

    Sorry to read about Hub having to travel . . . especially on his days off!

    I too haven't done any shopping or much of decorating ( Hub just put some lights up outside ) . . . I love Christmas, I love the feel of Christmas . . . just having a bit of difficulty with the "this & that" & it is interferring with my Christmas Spirit . . . I got to work on this!
