And I have internet again! The modem did come yesterday, and Daniel hooked it up right away. And it didn't fix the problem. He called the tech dude with the phone company, and he checked it out and sent the call over to the "higher up" tech dudes, which looked at it and said it seemed like a computer problem and not an internet/modem problem. So Daniel has been on here for a couple hours this afternoon and was finally able to get rid of something that was constantly hogging aLOT of the computer whatever and making it so slow.
We've had a wonderful Christmas day so far. Last evening was our Christmas Eve candle-light service at church... it was a very nice service and so pretty when all the candles were lit! This morning we slept in, then fixed a huge breakfast of bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, toast and tall glasses of orange juice. Then we watched a John Wayne movie that was on TV, then gave each other our gifts.
I started a loaf of bread in the bread machine (to make into dressing for next week), mixed up the dry and wet ingredients for party mix (keeping them separate for now), and made 2 cookie sheets of choc. covered pretzels.
We are getting ready to go have Christmas Dinner with a family from our church that has invited us to join them every Christmas for the past couple years and we decided to do it this year. The pretzels are for them :)
I still have plenty I need to do tomorrow in order to be ready for New Year's Day next week (tomorrow is my last "free" day), and I'm really glad I didn't plan ANYthing for tomorrow so I can use it for my overflow of things to get done.
Well, I need to go finish getting ready... I hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas Day!
