Since you’ve been gone

September 8, 2009 at 11:06 am (Top Ten Tuesday)

top-ten-tuesday Actually it’s more like “Since I’ve Been Gone”, but Kelly Clarkson’s song got stuck in my head so I went with her version as the title!

It’s been two weeks since my last post, so in honor of Top Ten Tuesday I thought I’d share the ten reasons why I’ve been gone & what I’ve been up to (don’t hold your breath – it’s not that exciting)!

1.  Our home computer was on the brink!  Apparently we blew the entire power supply box, so after getting that replaced & being told that we have the dustiest computer he’s ever seen (really, you need to unscrew the box covers & dust these things?!!?) we’re back up & running!

2.  We took a day trip to Lake Hartwell, SC for a surprise birthday party of a dear family friend.  I didn’t get in the water, but took a great boat ride and enjoyed the friends & company.

3.  Made dinners with some of my Sisterchicks  for one of our Sisterchicks.

4.  Megan became a teenager.  Really.  She’s wants shoes on her feet 24/7, she loves “talking” on the phone and she constantly wants my rings!  But she also still likes to eat her feet:)

5.  Went shopping with some of my Sisterchicks.

6.  Evan went to another Rodeo (he tries to catch as many of those as possible)!

7.  We celebrated Labor Day by celebrating my Dad’s birthday – Happy 59th Dad!

8.  I started a mission to lose those last 10 lbs.

9.  Evan started school – yahoo!!!

    Great list and a great way to catch us up on what you’ve been doing. Did you feel naked without a computer or internet connection? I don’t know if I could survive two whole weeks!

    Welcome back!

      I guess I should have clarified … I couldn’t go two weeks w/out a computer either!! Our home computer was down, but I got to steal my husband’s long enoug to check email & facebook, read a blog or two through Google Reader, twitter a little here & a little there throughouteach day… but not long enough to log into WP & write:)
