So much to post, so little time

I'm sure I have many things I'd like to blog about - our home computer is having issues and I've been without it for nearly two weeks now. (Let's not even get into how unreasonably crazy it makes me to have no home computer.) We thought it might be the monitor, bought a new one, hooked it up...and it wasn't the monitor. So off to the shop it went. Hopefully it will be an easy, not-too-expensive fix and I'll be back online at home before too much longer.

The news of the day: I have strep. Again. I went to the doctor on November 11 with the first bout of it. My throat started hurting during the night, so I went in this morning, and surprise! Round two! Brian is reminding me to take all of my antibiotics, on time, this time. I blame my pediatrician, who could have had my tonsils taken out when I was a kid and chose not to. Dang it.
