Get In, Sit Down and Hold On!

      That title pretty much describes my day today!  We have just changed internet service providers, which means new email addresses, but much faster service.  (Please note my email change in my “Contact Me” box on the side bar.)
     I’ve spent way too many hours the last few days changing account information with all of the businesses we deal with on line.  At one point in time this morning, I thought I had lost all of my account information with Amazon.  Can you say “panic”?  I just about did!!  The word “nightmare” was repeated and, apparently, quite frequently.  My boys are still mentioning it. 

     Amazon’s customer service continues to amaze me.  They are THE BEST!  It took a couple of phone calls, and a couple of great customer service reps walking me through the steps, but my information has all been restored.  Whew!


     Dani left this morning and will be out of town for a day or two.  She’s generally our “lunch lady”.    My menu plan called for a very ambitious morning in the kitchen – four dozen muffins (two dozen each of two different recipes) and a double recipe of Cheeseburger Soup, by lunch time, and then a new recipe to prep for dinner tonight.   A dozen or so of each type of muffin went into the freezer, and we had a few with our soup for lunch.  A few more were set aside to have with sausage and fried eggs tomorrow morning for breakfast.  That left a few loaners available for hungry boys later on.

     Of course, homeschooling, laundry and other tasks were begging for my attention, too.
     Is is just me, or does Aaron look just a little too excited about school today?  Hmmmm……
     To top it all off, the new ISP provider paid us a service call this afternoon to work on fine tuning our service a bit. 

     It was a wonderful day to be at home tending to all of these things.  We’re enjoying some much needed heavy rains, and I can hear the gusty wind blowing outside while we remain warm and cozy inside.  Copper had to run a few errands in town this morning, but he was able to stay in with us by the fire for the rest of the day.

      And can I just tell you that he brought me home a yummy Starbuck’s drink from his trip to town?  Yes, he did.  LOVE that man!

     There’s still a day or so left to enter my drawing to win a book.  Be sure to leave a comment at this post if you’re interested.

     I’d certainly appreciate your remembering to pray for a sweet little girl we know who is very sick, too.  Thanks!

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your household!
