A drive-by about Donovan, my keypad and whatnot...  
Hi all!

Yes, I am still here! My laptop has been fixed...sort of and I still have to use a mouse because the touch pad is toast. Still, I'm mobile again. For the time being. I need to take it to the Apple store to get it fixed completely.

BTW, when I say the laptop is 'fixed,' I mean we had to get a new keypad installed. When hubby called around, he was told to put the keypad into the oven at really really low temps and keep it in there to dry out.

So he did and then he put it back in and it was still toast. So he put it back in the oven and I said 'This is stupid. Get a new keypad or get me a new laptop.' So he ordered a new keypad and forgot that the old one was in the oven until...

Alex decided to make brownies and didn't check the oven. This is what a keypad looks like when it's been cooked:

Yep...it's toast.

Even though we're getting it fixed this week, I think I know what my Christmas prezzie is gonna be...:)

So I now have semi-laptop capacity today and tomorrow again which means I can write and such until I take it in. Using the iMac in the office is such a pain but I'm gonna give it a shot.

There are other things going on (mainly the kids and the shop) that I don't want to get into right now but it'll all be okay.

I've also requested to have some time just for me so I can write and communicate with everyone on lj (or ij or gj). I think I made my point clear.


I'll be spending time tonight responding back to my fb (I'm so behind...:P)

One quick thing before I go...

Under the cut is a piccie of Donovan in Griffon's Halloween costume.

I wish I could do the whole sepia tone thing and put a faux WANTED border around it. LOL!

I'll talk to you all soon.

Love and smooches!!!

LOL, baking your keypad is def one of those 'this one time at band camp' type of stories that will NEVER get old. ROFLOL... sorry, I know I shouldn't really laugh, but it really is pretty funny!!!
The pic of Donovan is soooo cute. My little boy is dressing up as Buzz Lightyear, and I have to say that I keep cracking up when he wears it because he makes this 'i'm really serious' face and it's just.... hahahahaha.... can I add a picture of it here? I have no idea how... but you'd laugh, I know it.

Hey you! I know you! I just friended you so you can see my locked posts where I posted pics of the kids. I don't know why I forgot to f-lock this one. I just went over to your journal and I saw the pic and OMG! He's so cute and you're right...it's that 'I'm really serious' face. LOL!

Donovan is actually going to be a Jedi (you'll see that one in the last post) and Rowan Princess Leia. The Desperado costume is Griffon's.

And yes, It is funny. Don't worry about hurting my feelings. We all got a good laugh out of it.

That is...after I stopped crying...
