Happy Thanksgiving

I can't believe Thanksgiving is already here. Why does time pass so quickly as we get older?!

The last few weeks are like a blur. Let me see. I spent one whole week trying to find a new computer. I also found out in that time span that I am totally addicted to computing.. Something I never thought would happen. I think I had 5 visits to Best Buy. The first one I bought was a Toshiba and got it home and it just wouldnt connect, so back I went. They tried also and couldn't connect. No more in stock, grrr. It was a few days later that I went back and bought the Dell that I had been eyeing. Ok, thats all set but the aircard wouldnt connect. Off to verizon for them to download the program for it..Had one good night with it and then next morning the verizon program is gone... Back to the verizon store for another download. I hope that will be it for quite a while. I finally feel complete with my laptop back in posession.
We were also busy going back and forth from our storage container. We want to have it emptied out by the end of the year. The hard part for me is going through the Christmas decorations. I am sorting in three piles. One for our daughter, one for son and one for us to keep. Not fun but at least its pretty much done now.
This week we are in Illinois spending Thanksgiving with our son and his family. We loaded up the truck with alot of boxes of kitchen stuff along with the Christmas things for him. We left Monday morning and drove over 600 miles staying at Walmart somewhere in Arkansas that night. We were up early and left at 4am Tuesday morning for an easy 300 miles. Only downside was, we stopped in a Sonic for breakfast and driving out of the driveway, Kevin caught a sign on the back of the trailer. It tore the sign down completely and put several scratches to the paint of the RV. Had to give them our insurance info so hope that won't raise our rates.
We are staying at Scott Air Force Base Famcamp. Not a bad park at all. It is about 45 minutes from our son. Have our vucube all set up and it was working like a charm, until last night when we returned, I forgot we were only on 30amp and turned on too many things and blew the circuit. After resetting, our LR tv would not come back on. Directv tried helping me get it restarted but it was a no go. They said sometimes the receiver burns out when this happens. Yikes, no tv in LR.. At least we had the bedroom one. Until late today, for some reason we lost satellite reception altogether. We had even gone out and bought a new receiver for the LR. Tomorrow is another day and we shall try again. It was rainy and very windy today so hopefully tomorrow will be better. We don't do well without tv......so wish us luck!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone..
