Dear Readers,

Thank you for your faithful attendance to my blog. I have had some huge setbacks over the past several weeks.

I finished up my Math for Liberal Arts class and managed an A with the help of my very gracious teacher. But starting school introduced a virus to my computer. A team effort worked to recover my files and restore my computer, but in reality, I'm barely limping along. I do email, but I don't even have a functioning copy of Micro Soft Word working. Since I just started my Research Writing class, this presents a problem. If I don't solve it soon I don't know what I will do; the writing class has homework deadlines ever 3-4 days for 7 weeks. I don't want to get behind.

My housemates are gracious in letting me use their computer too, but with 5 kids and home school going on, I can usually think better out of the house. Still I'm grateful for the assistance it gives through all this crashing. On top of all this my phone started acting up and this morning also presented a blue screen that wouldn't allow me ever to power it down. Alas, I got it restarted by taking the battery out and putting it back in.

All this is to say, besides being rather preoccupied with school, I have been technically impaired the past ten or so days. I'd appreciate your prayers over all this. And I'd take any advice you are handing out too.

I've been enjoying the kids I live with - the 5-year-old and only boy in the house just stopped in my room to ask advice about how to ask his mom on a date. I kept a straight face as I advised him and off he went with his Elmer Fudd accent to ask mama. I smiled at the thought. I wish I had more presence to enjoy all this.

Thanks again for your faithfulness in my very sporadic writing.
