Engineers ...

Holding my breath as the engineers do their work ~ they are rebuilding and upgrading my computer. It's a computer Mike built for me over 7 years ago, so I think it's time. I've backed up all my files and images and I hope everything transfers over. If you truly know me, you know how hard this is for me. I have confidence in my husband and I know it will be okay.

His New Chair!

I think he likes the bean bag chair Daddy surprised him with!
