Lost time

Hello again!

   We recently lost our home computer due to an unfortunate cleaning incident.  But now we have a new computer and most of our stuff reloaded.  The only drawback to our hot new computer is that it has a hypnotic blue power light that flashes when the computer goes to "standby" mode.  Both our boys are drawn to it like moths to a flame.  They can't look without touching, of course, so the computer gets powered on and off frequently.  Makes that "save" button very, very important.
   Here's what you missed:

Ben grew two small teeth :  front row, bottom.
Ben crawls.
Zeke has started to use "I" to refer to himself - occasionally.
We made a new rule about Zeke not eating 5 pounds of blueberries in less than 24 hours.  Messy.
Tina rearranged the furniture several times and, in the end, put everything back where it was in the first place.
Mike went to work.

What is a cleaning incident?

I was swapping out a video card and used an air can to blow some dust around. I think some dust lodged under the motherboard chip fan, which had been on the fritz, and killed it. It's not replaceable, and instead of trying to swap out the motherboard, I opted to upgrade the entire machine.

Now we run a slick version of Windows 7 64-bit with a 2GB video card, an 8-core processor and 16 GB RAM. It's a modest improvement over the old machine.

Hmmm. Maybe I should borrow that air can.

Ah, blueberry poop. Not fun.
