MP Maintenance Post

Hello, everyone.  First of all, for those of you who have emailed to check up on me/us, I appreciate it.  Please be assured that we are all alive and well, although my back is still giving me some trouble (I was in a pretty serious car accident back in my twenties ... yes ... eons ago ... and every now and then I'll wake up stiff and sore for no reason I can determine but was told back then that this would happen and the doctors I've consulted have seemed to be of the same opinion.  Oh, well ...)  Also, my laptop seems to have breathed its last, and while my friendly computer doc reassures me that my data is safe, it is probably not worth repairing it as its several years old.  So I'm trying to determine what to replace it with, but meanwhile except for my phone I am internet-less while at home, and this is my busy time of the month at the office (which is where I am now, although about to depart, as T&P are giving me some pretty serious "Hey, Mom, let's get the heck out of here so we can go home and have dinner!" eyes right now) so I haven't had the opportunity to post anything at work either.

I did draw a random winner for the Scout's Chip-In raffle, which I realize I am tardy in announcing, but will do that perhaps tomorrow or Monday when I have a bit more time.  But for now, please know how much I appreciate everyone who donated or was kind enough to spread the word on their blogs or Facebook pages.    

I also have a review to do which I will also get to in the next couple of days. 

Meanwhile, I leave you with this recent photo of Finn, taken the other night when it actually got down into the high '20s here in Sunny Florida.  

NOTE:  This was a quick picture snapped after I decided to put one of Tucker's too-small sweaters on Finn for my own personal amusement.  I hope it amuses you as well, but in case anyone is wondering, Finn was most decidedly NOT amused.

Hope all of you are doing well.  I greatly appreciate the well-wishes and all the nice emails I've received.  I hope to get back to posting regularly and also visiting everyone else very soon!

Finn definitely does not look happy!! We all understand that life gets in the way sometimes. We will all be here when you are ready to come back! Happy New Year!

We certainly do hope that you'll be feeling all better soon. This cold snap didn't help, I'm sure!

Your pal, Pip

WE wondered, but My Vickie wasn't smart enough to think of emailing you.

Anyway, we are so glad you are doing ok, even with the back problems.

Don't envy having to get a new computer.

Hey Tucker and Mom,

I'm glad you guys are okay. I'm a little late in my weekly rounds but it's nice to hear that you are all well... ummm except for the computer, of course.

I know how it feels to not have a lappy handy by your side. Maybe you should get a new one ^_^.

Finn seems to enjoy working it. A little strut on the catwalk and that's sweater's going to cost much much more.

Huggies and Cheese,

Hmmm I don't think Fin is too impressed! Am sorry about the back problems, though. Hope things improve. Bummer to be without pc. It's my lifeline!

I can tell Finn isn't amused!!

Big hugs to help make your back better sooner!! :)

Hope you're having a fun weekend,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Sorry to hear that your back isn't feeling better yet. Hope it feels better soon.
