Didn’t the weekend just start about 3 hours ago? :-) Seriously … where did the weekend go?
Friday, DH picked me up after work and we headed to the Gun Club for some Captain Hog’s BBQ. Yummy! I always get the pulled pork and sweet potato fries … and they were as delicious as always. When we got home, I set up the new laptop. I thought I was done when I went to bed that evening … but I was still working on some tweaks Sunday morning (like finally figuring out how to import my bookmarks), but as far as I know now, I’ve got everything pretty much the way I want it. The only “problem” I encountered was that I wasn’t able to install Quicken … I found the Quicken 98 disk and tried to install it but it wasn’t compatible with the new Windows 7 computer (which puzzled me, because I was running Quicken on the old windows 7 laptop). So I downloaded Quicken 2011 and got it up and running with our data. Sunday as I was going through our box of computer software, I discovered the disk for Quicken 2004 … which is, of course, the version that was on my old laptop (and would more than likely have been compatible with this Windows 7 computer). <sigh>
Saturday morning and afternoon was spent watching the Ts while DD ran errands. T#2 came down with tonsillitis and strep earlier in the week, and T#1 came down sick Thursday. I found T#3 had crashed in his bed when I went to check on him before I started lunch … that’s so not like him … he’s FULL of energy. Sure enough, he’s got it, too … and T#4 was running a fever Sunday afternoon. They can’t catch a break … I cannot remember a time when all 4 were well at the same time for a full week. :-(
Sunday morning we went to church and stopped by DD’s afterwards to drop off our old laptop (the one we replaced) … DSIL would like a laptop, and since he’s a big-time computer geek, he can fix anything that might be wrong with it. DD’s MIL was picking up T#2 for an afternoon together, and DD asked if I’d like an afternoon with T#1. I love all 4 Ts, but I cherish the one-on-one times. We had a wonderful afternoon spent in search of Star Wars Lego sets and a Luke Skywalker watch … not nearly enough time to do all we wanted. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to do this again.
It was a hot weekend, but our forecast says that we’ve got rain coming that will bring in cooler weather, and I’m ready! It’ll be nice to be able to open windows and get out for a bike ride. And speaking of a bike ride, I’m taking some bike-riding clothes with me to work … DH & I are still going to try to get in that bike ride this evening after I get off work. Hopefully the rain will have already passed through and brought the cooler temperatures with it. ;-)
