In mourning...(and a bunch of other updates)

I am sorry I haven't posted in so long. Unfortunately, my laptop died. Well, it's not even really my laptop, it's hubby's laptop that was somewhat handed down to me once he got his new one after Christmas. It was slightly damaged and kind of on it's last leg...anyway, I made the mistake of leaving a glass of water beside the laptop overnight and my cat (PITA - that's actually her name and she sure is a PITA), spilled the water and, of course, it seeped into my laptop and fried my hard drive. Kaput. Done. :( We called a professional computer geek friend of ours and he pronounced the death. In the meantime, hubby and I are sharing his laptop but he doesn't like that Picasa is copying all of his files (he's a designer and uses AUTO CAD - a drafting software program), and for some reason he is disturbed by this. I know I can upload photos individually without using Picasa, but I've just become so dependent on makes uploading multiple photos sooooo much faster. Ah well...anyway, since we're sharing the computer, I get less time actually on the computer, hence the lack of posts.

So, I have crafted a few items while I've been mourning the loss of the laptop and I will post pics of those soon. In the meantime, I'm dreaming of a laptop that I can call my very own.

I'm also envious of all the beachy pics I've seen on other people's blogs and the outdoor fun people are having with their kids. I live in a desert and it's been between over 115 degrees for the last week. I think the highs have been even over that. The temp is usually around 115 at 5:30 PM. I melt just going from my front door to my car. I'm pretty sure I could fry an egg on my driveway. Maybe that should be an experiment for the family this weekend.

Anyway, needless to say, we have not been spending any time outside. It's just too dang HOT. We need another weekend at the beach...

Are you somewhere hot? Are you melting? Or are you enjoying typical summer temps and cool breezes?
