Today is Monday~!

This morning Tracie called me and told me she was running late. She asked me if I could come and take Ben to Donna's house.. I said "Sure, I'll be right over".. Ben was out jumping on his trampoline when I got there. He loves his trampoline. We need to get the sides ordered so he will be safe... There is a star painted in the middle and we told him he needed to jump as close to the star as he could. He jumps so high and it's a energy buster for him... He has on his favorite shirt.. All the Mario family. Luigie, Toad, Bowser, Princess Peach, and ect.. Can hardly get it washed and he has it back on to wear... What a boy. Something about favorite things that just feel comfortable.

I gathered all his stuff to go to Donna's and we got in the car. Yesterday while we were at Walmart, he bought strawberries and blue berries to take to Donna's house for snack.. He said that Donna would like that. He helped me get the tops off the strawberries and we got them sliced up and put them in a plastic bag along with the blue berries. He was so cute when he walked out to get into the Benny Mobile.. Nibbles in one hand and his snacks in the other.. On the way to Donna's I told him we were going to go see Aunt Jodie that lives in Michigan in 4 days.. He said "Aunt Jodie lives along way from our house".. I said "Yes she does."...

HE was quiet for a minute and said "GranAnnie? after I'm at Donna's house today it will be 3 days until we go to Aunt Jodie's house".. Then the next day it will be 2 days and the next day it will be one day and the next day it will be zero days".. I couldn't believe he could fiqure that one out~! I told him how proud I was and how super smart he was> He was just beaming. I was surprised when he fiqured that out and told me that. WOW~! what a boy.


This afternoon at 3 I went over to my friends house. Her name is Carrol. She had taken her computer to Staples to get fixed.. They cleaned her computer to when it came to her brand new. Boy did we have lots of problems getting it set back up and have the internet back on. Staples had put everything that was on her computer on a Flash thingy.. We had to call the company that her computer was hooked up to (a router ) and we talked with someone from India.. Oh my goodness when this guys voice came on I was doubtful that we would be able to understand him... Well, we were ablt to do that and he helped us get her computer connected to the Web.. Yikes~! I have never done this so everything he said was new to me.. But we mastered that project. We then connected the flash point to her computer and ta da we were able to download everything back on her computer.. After 3 hours of working to get everything complete we were done and her computer was working fabulous.. Yeah~!~! I need to get one of those flash points (I think that is what they are called) to download everything that is on this computer so just in case this computer fails I'll have it all backed up... Oh I would hate to lose my pictures.

It was a busy day... the sun was shining all day and it got up to 80 degrees today.. Hardly any humidity and it was just a nice day. Going to read my book I got from the library Saturday.. Shanghai Girls written by Lisa See.

Have a Blessed Day ~~ ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Your grandson is such a cutie and really smart for his age! I hope you like Shanghai girls. I sure did but I think my favorite of Lisa See's so far is Snowflower and the Secret Fan. Maybe it's because it was the first I had read of hers. Enjoy!

A similar thing happen here. I had to do a complete restore with a guy from INDIA. I was paying dear for a back up with my internet provider,but they said I should have called them first, and I didn't,so I lost a lot of my stuff. Thank goodness, I had purchased an external hard drive a few weeks earlier and had saved some of my pictures to that.It's the pits at times,not knowing how to operate this computer any better than I do,but I am learning from my mistakes.

Great pictures of Bennie. Glad you were able to help Carol with her computer. They can be so frustrating.
