Hello, hello, hello!!!

It is so good to be able to sign on again!!!  I've missed you all so and was so worried.  The last time I was on I was having a problem commenting on your blogs and I tried doing some updating on my own and must have did something wrong because after doing whatever I did I couldn't even sign on to my own blog!  Anyway, I don't know what my son's friend did but being somewhat of a computer geek, whatever he did I'm here!!!  He's such a sweetie because he was here most of the day Saturday trying to resolve my internet problem and came back again today; and today he worked the miracle of getting me back up!!!  He kept telling me "ma don't worry, we'll get you up and running again".  My son and his friends (also my sons) never let me down if they can help it!!!  Unfortunately, I still have some issues but he showed me how to get around most of them until I can get my computer somewhere to be serviced.

Thank you all for your supportive emails.  I did try your suggestions but I still couldn't sign on to Blogger, and it's ridiculously difficult to contact them and/or get a response.  I wished I could have left you a comment letting you know what was going on, but even when I googled some of your blogs, I still couldn't post a comment.  However, I don't think the problem I was having was all Blogger because I was having problems with other accounts I sign on to also.  I could get into my email but that was about the only thing I could sign on to, although I had some problems there too.  Now my email account doesn't automatically recognize me and I have to complete the full log-on procedure every time I need to get in, even if I check the box to keep me signed on.  A bit of an inconvenience but I'm just happy to able to get around again!!!

Because I haven't been able to access my blog I was unable to get in here last week to conclude the selection for the blog candy package.  So, to give everyone the opportunity to know I'm back on-line, I'll do the drawing tomorror at 6 p.m. central time (I hope everyone checks in by then).  Because of Blogger comment issues, to be fair, if anyone was unable to post a comment to be eligible for my RAK, please send me an email to audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net.  I'll make certain you're included in the vote, but you must leave me the email by tomorrow's deadline and note the comment is for the blog candy.

I have worked on a few projects during my "down" time which I'll share with you beginning tomorrow.  I was too frustrated to tackle any major  craft projects but I did manage to keep moderately calm by working on a few small things.  I'm still waiting on my cart, and the ink and screens, from Cricut; hopefully they'll be here before this week is out.

Anyway I'm so excited to be back up and running, I could probably go on and on, but now I've got to start getting a DT project together for Sheila's blog on Thursday.  I was so afraid I wouldn't be able to post that I hadn't even attempted to begin a project, so now I've got to beat the clock to get something together.

God willing (no more problems), I'll be back tomorrow!  So looking forward to seeing you then!  And so hoping and praying I'll be able to leave a comment when I visit!!!

Love and have missed you all!

Oh sweet friend, we love you and missed you terribly, so glad that you are up and running again. I am still not feeling real perky yet, but have finally got an appointment to go to physical therapy... I have gone to the chiropractor 3 times now and he told me that he didn't know if he would be able to help me because he doesn't think I will be able to work through the pain... not quite sure what he means by that..sometimes my head just feels like I need to take if off and put it back on in a different direction.. they are still working on my poor car.. they had said it would take at least two weeks... hugs
