My home computer was attacked with a virus about three months ago. I dealt with it and struggled through for a month, and then broke down and spent a couple hundred dollars to repair it. The repair came with a 30 day warranty. Wouldn't you know it, around day 31 it was attacked with another virus. So... I haven't been able to post anything here lately.
Plan B--- my laptop is now set up in the living room and it's functioning (w/o a virus) off the of the wifi box on my old computer. I'll need to get a new PC soon-- maybe with my tax refund. I think I'll go with McAffee, cause Norton hasn't been a big help.
Anyway-- lots to catch you up on:
Christmas Day was spent at my brother's house, Michael's father's house and Michael's sister's house. This was our first time doing duel family holiday duties. It went pretty smoothly and I think we all had a good time. It seems though that most of our time at each house was spent arranging to get group family pictures!
The following night, Michael's brother called and asked me out to dinner. It was kind of strange and awkward in the beginning, but Bryce and I had a great time at TGI Friday's. We sat and talked for about 3 hours, and I afterwards I really felt like a member of the Hill family for the first time.
For New Year's Eve, we went to Brent and Sarah's house. We stayed for an hour or so and then raced to the Corner Tavern before midnight. I wasn't really planning on going out, but at the last minute I talked myself into it.. how could I miss midnight at the Corner Tavern? It's been a tradition for years.
Last night we went to Cirque du Soleil at Atlantic Station. The tickets were a Christmas present from me to Michael (I'm glad he opted to take me!). It was opening night and they pulled out all the stops... free appetizers, free popcorn, free soft drinks... cupcakes were passed out at intermission. The show was incredible and I highly recommend it. This was my third Cirque du Soloeil show, but Michael's first.. it was fun to see it through his eyes.
Well, that's all I've got for you for now-- enough?? Next on the horizon is the opening of our new store in Raleigh. I'm still trying to figure out how to make it there for the traditional picture of the new owners/managers in my car. It's probably going to be a one day trip-- ugh!
