Where have I been...Computer Crash...

My computer has been on life support for a few days.
The computer doctors are having a conference to determine if and when to pull the plug.
Waiting to see who is having a computer sale this week in case the computer has to go to computer
Borrowing hubby's computer at the moment.
Daughter F I N A L L Y moved into her new home so I have been helping out with the move and taking care of Mr. Vundervants.
Lot's of before and after photos of the house to share when my computer is up and about.
Miss y'all!
