Just a Few Things...

No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but I certainly have been neglecting my blogs. I can't believe our summer is half over. My brain is starting to contemplate school shopping and looking for a new job in the fall. But there is still some summer left to enjoy, so I better not get ahead of myself.

Last weekend was my 20 year high school reunion. Everything went well and everyone had a great time. Since I had spent so much time and effort planning it, I was just glad to see it over. We had dinner Friday night for the adults, breakfast Saturday morning for families and then we rode the float in the Magrath parade. It was quite hot, but the guys I graduated with made sure we girls didn't suffer and doused all of us in water at the end of the parade. After the initial shock, it felt good. Fun times.

My computer is still sick and we found out today it is the motherboard. Not a cheap fix like we hoped. I was hoping to have it fixed to take with me to Idaho this weekend so I could work on submitting again.

Wednesday I received another email rejection. Even though I think I should get used to it, each one throws me for a loop. So I need to work up another submission package for Double Deceit and also a new package for Finding Rose. I'll probably end up sending them out about the same time. Then more waiting.

Without my laptop working, I'll need to come up with a whole new plan for my Idaho trip. We are taking my oldest daughter to Rexburg for EFY and then the rest of the family will hang out with my sister all week. Anyone have anything interesting we just have to see in the Idaho Falls area?

That's what I've been up to. Maybe I'll get to a computer in the next week, but I'm not counting on it. Meanwhile, I'll travel the old fashioned way with pens and paper.

Stephanie, just a thought, but you could look into getting a netbook. They're fairly inexpensive as compared to new laptops (which is what you need when the motherboard goes bad) and way portable.

My laptop recently had a similar issue to yours, and I got a netbook-which is much smaller and lighter than my 17 inch monstrous laptop. It doesn't run tons of programs, but I only really need it for writing and taking notes at conferences, so it's perfect for me, and lots easier on my shoulders when toting it around.

Just a thought. Have fun in Idaho!

That's a good idea. I'll have to look into it.
