Here We Go Again

Drat those power surges!! (I know I know, I should be grateful we HAD power.) Our computer was plugged into a power surge protector, but it must have been off duty or something because the computer is dead. D-E-A-D. I will be taking it to the computer hospital to see if there is anything that can be done. Maybe it is just the power cord. Yea right.

Sooooooo if the Joe's are scarce, please forgive. I have access to the internet at work, but you know how that is. I don't want to get busted blogging so I only do it after hours. :o)

In other news: there is another winter weather storm on it's way. Muskogee County is at the edge of the storm. Usually that is a good thing, but "on the edge" of a winter storm means not nice powdery snow, but sleet. Oh boy. Just what we needed. More ice. Yippee!

Muskogee has already cancelled school for Monday and Tuesday. The debris from all the falling trees would make it difficult and downright dangerous for the school buses. Fort Gibson is holding out that they can manage it. I actually hope they can. The girls are stir crazy!! Not to mention all the people they call on the phone cause they are bored! haha They don't know what to do at home without cable or the internet. Play a game! Color! Draw! Play with your toys! Read a book! Write a story! Do some laundry! Do some dishes! Oh but nooooooo!!! They want to go to Nana's or G-moms. I don't blame them. It IS more fun at your grandparent's house. :o) And they have good grandma food!

I am trying to get a jump on the day's weather so I am at work blogging when I should be doing payroll.


  1. I hope they can fix your computer.
    Bloggin is better than doing payroll. Thanks for sneaking us a post and letting us know your situation.

    Have a wonderful day!

    drat!! more ice...that bites

  3. I don't know how many times I've blogged instead of doing payroll...

    Hope ya'll are warm and safe over there in Ice Land aka Fort Gibson. I hope winter takes a break soon. I'm suppose to head your direction in a couple of weeks!

  4. So Raggedy, do you have a spare computer laying around??

    Badoozie yes it bites hard! no ice today though....we are on the edge of the storm.

    Leslee: i thought of you when we ate at Twisted Joes' yesterday! Call us when you are in town!

  5. Do Nana and G-Mom have internet and cable?

  6. I hope your computer gets fixed soon.
    Did you get much snow or anything over the weekend?

  7. I'm amazed how manmade global warming can be causing these ice and snow storms! Perplexing.

    Be careful when it is icy!! I panic when roads are icy.
    Give me sunshine!!

    My mom had a connecting flight in Houston when they had their ice storm. People there didn't know WHAT to do. Temps were 30 degrees below the norm.

    I hope your computer gets all better really soon.

  8. 2nd Annual Mullet Contest on my blog!!

  9. I hope all's ok in OK.
    Try and stay warm!!
