Go figure....I finally get my computer hooked up, at the new place, and my system suffers a near fatal crash. Thanks to my 14 year old son, who was...ummm...being a curious adolescent BOY! Can all of you moms, with teenage boys, join me in a collective cry: "EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!" Fortunately, my best friend, Glenn, is a computer genius and is working diligently to fix whatever ails my machine. Glenn reminded me that it's been ages since I mentioned him, so I'll give credit where credit it due. Considering he built me my computer, for my 42nd b-day, credit is actually way overdue! He's the bomb-diggity, devastatingly handsome, has a rapier wit and is one of the few people who I can always count on to tell it like it is. Okay, now that he's no longer looking over my shoulder, I can add: I hope he'd hurry up and fix my flippin' computer!!! Since I am writing this post on Glenn's laptop and can't access my pictures....Ladies, this is Glenn. Glenn, these are my blog buddies :-)

And the Winner is....OOPS!!!!!

I need two volunteers please: one to hold my shoulders still and the other to screw my head on straight. I completely spaced out and forgot to choose a winner for my mink coat give-away! That has got to be the biggest blog DUH ever!

By way of explanation (no excuses) I've been housebound with my flu-infested (how gross does that sound?) daughter for the last few days. I'm not an alarmist when it comes to my normally healthy kids, but even the most laid-back mom would do a double-take when the thermometer reads 104.4. After a very necessary trip to the pediatrician, it seems the flu turned into a double ear infection, a severe sinus infection and possible pneumonia. The dr. skipped the chest x-rays because she'd already decided to start pumping my baby full of antibiotics. At least, this time, I have a viable reason for my ditziness.

Thank you, LuLu, for popping over and reminding me. Without further adieu, the winner is....LuLu! God as my witness, I did not fix that. My son randomly picked the name from my hand. No need for a hat as there were just two names to choose from :-) Congratulations, LuLu, and thank you again for getting me back on track.
