… then it’s probably because my computer died. It’s been making this weird noise and it’s starting to scare me. It used to be really loud when I first turned it on, until Greg blew all the dust out. It sounded better, but it’s still making a strange noise every few minutes. Sounds like a tired race car. Greg seems to think that it could be either the power supply, the fan, or both. So after trying to decide whether to fix or replace, he ordered a new computer for me yesterday but the website froze during processing and we don’t know if the order actually went through. He called, and they weren’t able to find the order, and told him to give it 24 hours to see if he gets a confirmation e-mail. Hopefully it went through, because that’s one day sooner that I’ll have the new ‘puter. In the meantime, PLEASE all keep your fingers crossed that this one will make it until the new one arrives!
I heard about this new shopping center recently and talked Greg into checking it out last Sunday. It’s right at the lake, and they have fountains, a lighthouse, even a small stage. Mostly we just walked around the fountains and and along the lake, and didn’t really check out the stores that were there. We did walk into the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and came out with a box of chocolates. They’re pretty good (but pricey!!), and not nearly as good as Godiva. They had some caramel apples, too, and Melissa really wanted one. Greg didn’t buy her one because a) we would have had to get Sara one, too, and I know she would have taken a few bites and be “stuffed”, and b) $5 a piece seemed a little expensive for a caramel apple. Melissa got mad, and was following way behind us on the way back to the fountain, dragging her feet and crying!!
So here’s Mopey…
… and Dopey (hiding from the camera… had to stick his head in his shirt after the kids took his hat away)
And of course Fountain Girl. I’m surprised she didn’t fall/jump in!
