Hanging in There

Hi everybody!

I feel like the fun blog parade is passing me by.

You all have been so sweet to check on my whereabouts. Our computer was with the Geek Squad for two weeks. We got it back yesterday and now the internet connection isn't cooperating. We are hoping we just have to go buy a new "wireless g cord".

Don't you love how I say that like I have a clue?

I don't!

Maybe the guy at Radio Shack will know. :)

Like a lurking sneaky pete, I have been enjoying all of your posts. All the cloches, gardens, tablescapes, and thrifty bargains are amazing. The Flaunt Your Reds party was fabulous. You all are so inspiring. Who needs magazines when you have blog friends? I have a few projects to share if this is ever all back together again.

See you soon!

Oh girl I hate it when I have computer/internet problems. I am crossing my fingers that you get back up and running soon. We miss you!

You know we didn't get a DROP of rain!!!!! It has been lower temperatures though which has helped.

Carol said...

So sorry you're having technical problems! Hope all is back to normal soon.


Marilyn said...

How true. Who needs those magazines anyway? Such good ideas on blogs. I sure hope you are back up and running soon.

Domestic Designer said...

So sorry for all your problems. Hope you are up and running again soon!

Lou Cinda said...

Stacey: I am so glad you are at least on the "mend". Hopefully it will be an easy fix! I am clueless also when it comes to technical stuff! I think I have accomplished something when I manage to upload a photo!

Computer problems are the pits! Hope everything gets fixed super-duper soon...we all need you back!

Tee said...

Hey Stacey, thanks for visiting me last week. Nosed around your lovely blog for a few minutes. I'll most definitely be back when you're up and running again!

p.s. Loved the squirrel post!

I hope you get your problems sorted out soon. I think I would go nuts without my laptop! My regular computer is on the blink so I can't scan photos. Sometimes there is a lot of inspiration in old pictures.

I think you are right about visiting blogs that are just as good as magazines. I think BH&G could find a lot of rooms and gardens to feature in their magazine if they just visited our little blogland!!

Hope you are up and at it again soon!! :-)


Pamm said...

Yes, I, too, hope you are up and runnin' reg'lar ASAP! And thanks so much for the encouragement! YOU are a gift to me! Grins and clutches, Pamm

Cathy said...

Stacey...I know that I already said this but...hurry back!!! These computers are crazy...I think they are alive and trying to drive us insane;)!!!

I will send good thoughts your way!!!

Man you are right. The worms and virus are for the birds, literally. I am afraid all the time my is gonna crash. Been working hard since I got the blogging fever. Blessing on all our computers. (I happen to know God takes all prayers into consideration. Victorian Parlor and I just decided He does.)

Simply Dandy said...

Hey Stacey,
You will be back to blogging in no time, I miss your posts.


Shelia said...

Hi Stacey! Oh, I hope you're up and running soon! I've missed you!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Amber B. said...

Yuck for computer problems!! I hope you get it sorted out, too. I am clueless about that stuff. Can't wait to see what you have when you get back. :-)

Grandma Nina said...

Lucky that you've at least been able to read the blogs. I agree, it's like haveing hundreds of new magazines delivered every day. Hope all you needed was that g cord thing (never heard of it)

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Welcome back, Stacey! So you've been lurking, hmmm. Well, at least you were able to enjoy everyone's blogs and been able to keep up. I am happy things are almost fixed for you! Have a great week! Twyla

Brenda said...

I've been wondering when you were coming back to join us, Stacey. I've missed you! I'd click over to check and think, well maybe she's back in the land of the connected. But alas, you were not. I was starting to worry. Glad you checked in. I was about to call in the National Guard!

An Accomplished Woman said...


I feel exactly the same way but not due to computer issues. I have been working so hard... I am going to slow down and read some blogs. It is good to have you back. I hope your computer is cooperating for good.


Dawn said...

We can't wait to have you back. I haven't hardly watched tv or bought a magazine since I started bloggig!

Just a little something from Judy said...

You will be welcomed back into our parade as soon as it is possible. You sure have been missed...you and all the beauty you continually share with us.

Lisa said...

Don't you wish we could do what we do with computers, only without computers? There's gotta be a way!

Nancy said...

Oh Stacey...You've got to be kidding! If it's not one thing...it's another!!! I feel for ya! I hope you get everything working..soon! Miss ya!!! Nancy

Melissa Miller said...

Stacey I miss you my friend!
Hurry back! :)

Stacie said...

Computers can be so frustrating - especially when they keep you from having fun.

I've given you an award on my blog. It will be there waiting for you :D

Grandma Nina said...

How's the computer fix coming along? Thanks for visiting and your comments. I agree, our lives and husbands sound very similar.

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Computers are such a hassle aren't they? Too bad we need them because some days I'd like to throw mine out the window. We miss you, hope it all gets worked out soon!

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Stacey,

I hope your computer problems are sorted out soon. Oh, it is soooo frustrating; I feel for you!


Kat said...

Welcome back! Computer "issues" drive me c-r-a-z-y! LOL


Ramona said...

You will be back soon...all of the blog fun just isn't the same without you. Stay cool and enjoy these lazy summer days!

Smiles ~ Ramona
