still here without computer

I am still here. sorry for the inconvenience. computers can be great and also can be a great disappointment.
my computer is trash. it is less than 3 years old so I am NOT a happy camper. I am putting this on from an old slow laptop with no mouse so I am using the scroll and I HATE IT.
oh well, the only GOOD thing that came out of this is that I am in my sewing room more. LOL

I cant download pictures but I FOUND my turkey and we have a date with Jackie this Sat to FINISH I am hoping. we made plans to sew a couple hours in my screen room. now to find a sewing machine I can carry without hurting myself or others ha ha

Lets see........
this is what I have accomplished the past week with no computer........

1) hemmed TWO pr pants that I have been wanting to do all summer   now I can at least wear them in the correct season
2) sewed more on my little tumbler quilt
3) entertained more in my newly screened screen room    the grandkids loved being out there and playing that ladder game       new to us but already a favorite
4) made one cat mat
5) organize some fabric on a shelf
6)worked on catching up the circle quilt
7)cut more baby tumblers for the box
8) made a pillowcase from a kit I had and forgot about  
9) finished one green knit dishcloth and started another one
10)found Christmas panels and deer panels in my room    oh my......
11)FOUND A UFO FROM 2000  yeah I know
12)bought a kitty tower for the brats and they are afraid of it   ggggggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrr
13)PREPPED MORE CIRCLES for the circle quilt and even fussy cut some for fun
14) gasp! cleaned my messy house   LOL 

I guess this was a lesson as to how much I waste time on the puter. I will still blog and such but will probably preblog a week at a time so that I can free up some time to enjoy the craft itself.
hopefully son will have an affordable solution soon. this year has been money everywhere going out. for the bedroom redo, for hubs hospital stay and ambulance, for screenroom and replacing bedroom closet doors, I need 4 new tires on the car, the shed is falling down, and now I need a new computer. TWO actually as hubs laptop is not that good either. can someone help me win the lottery?

anywho, I am here just not back and running. I appreciate you all checking on me to see if I am back and as soon as I am able I will post some quilty pics.

thanks for reading my blog and for being patient. I am afraid I have not been quite so patient with this ordeal. and we still don't know how it happened. gggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..........
