I did not die...,my computer's ability to connect to the internet did. It was touch and go there for a bit, but this techno-geek guy that I am sleeping with (also known as my husband and father to my children) worked his magic and fixed my baby (also known as "my life support" and "my sole connection to the outside world") right up.
So I'm back. Just in time too. I'm sending my oldest two kiddos off to school again starting Wednesday, and I will have time and energy to focus on being better about posting random BS on here. I know y'all can't wait.
Until then, go see The Help.
