The day that computers were not my friend

Yesterday was full of "technical difficulties" for this mom.

First off, one of our computers crashed!

The other computer wasn't much help at all because our new Intern*t filter wouldn't let one of our boys do his homework for an online course he's taking.
This new filter seems to work in reverse. It lets in what you don't want and keeps out what you do. Ugh!

Then we went to a meeting to pick up my son's test scores. He took one of those tests that helps you determine what your strengths are and what kind of a career you would enjoy. But, when we got there, we were told that his test scores were 'lost.'

After that major dissappointment, we headed to the grocery store.
At the check out, youngest son told me that he was buying me this:

He said "Mom, I think you need a little chocolate in your life today!"
Prayer and chocolate work wonders, even when all computers are against you. ; )

His test scores were lost??? That's pretty unprofessional!
I agree chocolate helps, but it leaves me feeling guilty. :-(

I love it. You have a great son. Thanks for the comment about the midwives I love having my babies at home and since I have moved to Iowa the laws here are a lot more complicatd than Arizona. We have had to just pray and know that God will work out all the details for us along the way.

I just caught up with your blog.

And guess what? This week I studied your psalm. You know ... "like olive plants around the table". So cool! I love how God uses metaphors and word pictures that make His truths so much easier to grasp.

And the funny things your kids are quoted as saying was great. I remember one of my favorite when my oldest was potty training. He ran to the potty thinking he had something he needed to do, only to find out it was a toot.

He said, "My bottom burped!"

That gets me every time.

Have a wonderful, blessed weekend with your sweet family.
