Have you ever felt the need to clean?

Well this morning I sat down at my computer to do some promo work, when all of a sudden I was overwhelmed with all the icons on my desk top. Not only do I have a bazillion shortcuts, but they all look the same. I decided right then and there I needed to change that. So off I went into cyberspace to find an Icon maker so I could make cute little pictures for each of my shortcuts. 3 hours later, my desktop looked much better. Then I noticed that my handy-dandy Icon maker also makes cute little teenie pictures to replace the myriad of folders in the various drives on my computer. Well, 6 hours later, I have lots and lots of cute little pictures on my desktop and cute little teenie pictures that replaced the boring file icons on my computer, and, well, nothing else done. But my computer is a lot more fun to look at!

Since I'm back from my Break...

I thought I'd show you what all the hoopla was about. These are my darling Baby Grands.

This is Grace, and she is every bit as smart as she is adorable. She will be 3 in November.

And this is Joshua, her baby brother.
He is 6 months old, and oh so sweet.

I was babysitting them for the summer while my daughter and son-in-law made preparations to move to Iowa, which is why I was on such an extended break.
As most of you know, we were planning to move to Iowa this summer. As a matter of fact we were supposed to be there already. But my lovely sister-in-law, who was supposed to be the executor of the estate my in-laws left behind, not only spent her share of the inheritance, but ours as well. So it was with a heavy heart and many, many tears, that I had to say goodbye to my sweet baby grands and watch them, with their parents, move to Iowa without me and my husband.

But all is not lost, because we have God on our side and He will help us see the good that He has in mind for us through this very difficult time. We have been able to recover a portion of the money that was stolen by my sister-in-law, and in due time we will be able to move to Iowa as well, so I am trying to use my time wisely and constructively, so I won't dwell on all the after-affects of what my sister-in-law has done, but rest in the fact that God is in control and in the end, what He has in store for us will be much better than anything we could have come up with.

And now my daughter is expecting her 3rd baby, another son, so that's one more blessing we have to look forward to.
