Things continue to be pretty hectic around here. We're making headway on the house - our small group from church is coming over on Sunday evening to help us paint the living room and kitchen. Are those true friends or what? :) We've been doing the prep these past couple days - using lots of spackle, pulling off paneling, discovering wallpaper remnants (we're removing chair rail in one room, and suddenly had a vivid reminder that when we stripped the ugly wallpaper several years ago, we simply CUT around the trim) Ah, the joys. A dear friend watched A for me yesterday for five hours so I had some good solid working time - I'll also have that tomorrow when hubby and the kids take a vehicle up to his sister's. Speaking of hubby, he's really going through a lot right now. Things at work are really tough right now as people are being laid off and others are training their replacements. Lots of raw emotions floating around - and he's worked with most of these people for nearly 13 years. He's carrying a lot on his shoulders right now, and please pray for him as the Lord brings him to mind. Please pray for me, too, that I can be supportive and helpful, rather than just adding to his burden.
I took some fabulous pictures of the sky yesterday that I was hoping to share, but we're having computer issues once again. When I turned our main computer on this morning (which I'd dumped pics onto last night before heading to bed) I was greeted with an error message, stating that one of the Windows config files is missing. That computer has been giving us a lot of problems in the past couple months, and it may finally be time to just let in rest in peace. In the meantime, I'm working on the old laptop - but no access to pics, editing software, etc. I don't think it's going to be a priority for awhile, either, so posts may be photo-free for a bit.
Well, my coffe is cold and my break time is over. Back to the grindstone!
