Finally can breathe again!

I have put Microsoft XP Service Pack 2 onto well over 100 machines now. It has been a very busy week. I also installed a new mainframe program onto everyone's computer and installed a new version of the imaging program. Looks like I know have to install a spyware killer program onto each machine. I guess my job is never done. ;)

Well, tomorrow is the big day! I've been trying to get ready for Back-to-School Night for the past month...I hope I have everything ready. I've been sick today. :angry: I don't know what it was, but it was bad timing that's for sure. I'm finding it hard to get my head back in to the preparations. I hope I'm not forgetting anything major. I wish Scott was here! I have Megan Johnson coming to babysit the girls tomorrow. I can't wait for Friday! Anyway, wish me luck...I'll probably need it! :blush:

School Starts, Shaylie's Birthday, and other stuff

We had a very busy weekend! To start off with, I had to finish fixing our computer, as it still had some issues. Then Grandma Dawn came down and gave Taylor a perm. As she drove away, Grandma Rose pulled in for a weekend visit!

Saturday was Shaylie's 4th birthday and her first friend's birthday party. A few of her friends came over and they painted unicorn sun-catchers. Then we all had cake and ice cream, it took Shaylie about 4 blows each to blow out her four candles. :rofl: Then she opened her presents. I believe that she was very happy.

Sunday I had to give the lesson in elder's quorum, people said I did good, but I don't know, hopefully next month I will feel more comfortable. Then we drove up to Pine Valley forest and relaxed.

This morning, we all walked Taylor to school for her first day of 3rd grade. She was really excited to be back in school. Grandma J left to head back home, and I went to work.

Tomorrow, I go to the dentist, and then drive to Salt Lake for training and our Annual LAN Conference.

Service Pack 2

Sorry about not writing for a while, been pretty busy. Windows XP Service Pack 2 came out and it causes some issues with programs at work, so I have been working through that. :grumble: Also had to redo my home computer because it would not even install on it. :hithead: But now my home computer is running very well, I am happy about that. :satisfied:

We had our 12th anniversary on Sunday. We didn't do very much for it (actually we didn't do anything, but that is ok, because next year, we will be able to do stuff.) We did go to our Stake Patriarch and I received my Patriarchal Blessing. I really enjoyed that.

Tonya has been SUPER busy getting ready for school. I hope that she makes it through. She has had some problems due to redrawing of boundaries and a whole bunch of new students coming into the school, glad they gave them a lot of lead time before school started to change boundaries :crazy:

Taylor is riding her bike a lot, I'm glad we were able to fix it up for her. We just found out who her teacher will be. She is VERY excited to be going back to school. I have to say, so are we ;)

Shaylie is excited that she will be going to school soon. She is REALLY excited that her birthday party is this weekend.

New Bike

We got my old bike back and Taylor rode it home with me last night. She is now tall enough to use a bike I have used, although admittedly the bike was small for me. She was understanding the gears, although she still thinks that there is a right "gear" to be in. We rode home over the trail, which ended up being a 10-mile ride, which in the heat was a bit much for her, although she did ok.

School is getting close. Tonya is working on PTA more than I go to work, she is easily putting in 40 hour weeks.

Anje is staying with us this week, so that Anissa can finish up her studies.

Brian and Dena had a baby boy last night. Congrats!!! :thewave:
