It has been a week of computer problems.... Our router stopped working last Thursday and we ended up buying a new one. Two days ago I received a lovely, nasty virus on my computer that for the life of me I could not get rid of. I have never NOT been able to fix my computer before but this time was different. Yesterday my husband ended up bringing it to a technician that was able to save my documents and data. He then basically wiped the slate clean and uploaded my files back to my computer.
I also took off from work Monday for the holiday - Sunday I had to work most of the day so I could take the day off Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday ended up being snow days from school so I worked from home. Days home with kids - Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed. The kids were really good until yesterday when cabin fever struck. Usually they are fairly well behaved but not at night (when I have them) - then all hell breaks loose. It was a relief to go into the office today.
I am so behind on my emails, my blogging, etc. but hope to get caught up some this weekend. Miss C. has a gymnastics competition on Sunday so we will have to travel a little bit. She did VERY well in her last competition (scored 4th overall). She is a little behind of where she should be so we had a serious talk with her. Basically "It is OK to socialize and have fun, but if you want to move up with your friends, you have to work hard too". In just a couple of weeks we have noticed a HUGE difference in her attitude and her performance. We will be very busy with gymnastics through April.
I can't believe that it is almost the end of January. My how the time flies!
