Boo Hoo Cry Cry

Ok, now that I have your attention let me explain. I have had computer issues again. This time it is the hard drive. It was going bad and so they replaced it. The good news is I had a service contract that covered it. The bad news is that means it is like a new computer off the shelf. All the programs and things I had on there are now gone and I have to reload them all. UGH. I do have some backups and they will try to backup the hard drive before giving it back to me, but of course there is no guarantee. In the meantime all the stuff I need to get done is not getting done. For now I am using my daughter's laptop to post this message. I just hope that I can get all the programs back that I had paid for. Some of them were sent to an email address I don't have any more and since the hard drive will be cleaned I don't know if I can access them in outlook express. On another note, I have been busy scrapbooking. We are starting an 8 week World Services push at church in Sunday School. We are going to "travel" to 8 different countries where there are officers serving from the Salvation Army western USA territory. These will include Kenya, Spain, Estonia, Switzerland, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Zambia. I hope to raise an awareness of the needs in these countries as we raise funds to help in the Salvation Army work around the world.
Praise the Lord my daughter has a full time job now. She is really enjoying it. She is working as an aide in preschool (head start). The job came about in a funny way and just goes to show that God has a sense of humor. Fall time only lasted a few weeks it has started to snow in Anchorage and I am sure it will be in the valley soon. Better get going, have a great day and God bless you
