New computer

Hubby bought me a new computer!!  Yay.....but now comes the task of figuring everything out again.  I have a new software for my photos and I'm still trying to learn the ins and outs of it.  Here are a few pics I played with today :)

So, first of all my computer started dying on me.  It would just completely die while I was browsing or blogging etc.  This happened a few times and I told hubby what was going on.  Then it just went blank and wouldn't come back on at all!  Hubby was able to revive it one last time and get everything backed up before it completely went kaput.  We are thankful that everything seems to backed up!!  I've lost several of my software packages though including what I was using to do my photography....bummer.  Now I have to figure out a different package to tweak my photos and make them look pretty :)

Then, today we take baby to her 4 month checkup and when we got back, hubby headed to get some work done on the van.  I decided to get some laundry done, and upon opening the laundry room door, there was a flood!!  Then I noticed the carpet was wet, then the downstairs bathroom was flooded and it seeped into the garage where several boxes where soaking up the water.....aaarrrgg.  We have yet to access the box damage.  Not happy!  But on a thankful could have happened while we were down south over the weekend....God is good :)

To update baby's stats....she is a healthy girl!  14 lbs 10 oz and 25 inches long.  She had 3 shots today.

and home again!

We had another unexpected trip down south again this weekend.  It had nothing to do with housing this time!!  We have a dear friend that is not doing well and we decided it would be best to make a visit, especially for our daughter's sake.
 I've written about this man before....he started coming to our church when our oldest was 4 years old.  He had lost his 4 year old daughter to cystic fibrosis.  Our daughter and he hit it off immediately and for the next 4 years, they sat together every Sunday and Wednesday service (we sat in the same row).  Even after he no longer attended our church, our daughter and he kept in contact through letters and phone calls.  They have a special friendship!
We heard Friday night that he had been moved to a nursing/rehab facility and was not doing well.  He has been having problems swallowing and keeping anything down.  For a skinny man, the loss of 36 lbs has really taken its toll on him.  He was very weak and frail when we saw him over the weekend, but what a surprise it was to him to see his 'girl' walk into his room!  We were able to have a good visit him and I believe it lifted his mood.  We pray for his recovery.
