Back to Normal, Mostly


I’m still on this STUPID (!) Windows8 laptop, and I had two power outages in the past week, though I did have power back in time for workshops this past weekend. (Whew.) And have finally gotten back online. I still have all three kids home, and am trying to enjoy that in the midst of all of this other stuff, so I’m taking them whitewater rafting on the New River tomorrow. See you after that!

    Have a wonderful time with your kids!

    I’m glad to hear you’re carving out some fun to have with the kids. It will feel so good to get out and relax for a bit. Hopefully everything at home will return to normal in no time.

    You and the kids have earned this time together!!! Have a great time, get wet, and stay away as long as you can! We’ll be right here!

    Just saw a PBS p’gram about New River Gorge S.P. and rafting. Looks like you guys should have one heck of a good time! You all deserve it. (Having the three young adults together will get rarer and rarer…enjoy.

    You are way braver than me. My son and I went tubing once in Helen Georgia. That’s the roughest water I want to be in.

    You are braver than me, too. :dancingmonster:

    Have a great time and be safe! :snoopy:

    Oh good, you’ll be able to answer a long time question I’ve had – how do people stay IN the raft. I think there must be a bit of magic going on cause they’re not strapped in!

    Welcome back! But I just read that Spencer had flooding again today, so hope you still have power and phone. After no power or phone for 11 days after hurricane Isabel, I went with wireless internet. I don’t know how your cell service is in your neck of the woods, but if it’s half way decent, it might be worth looking into.

    After all this rain, the river should be AWSOME!!! :bugeyed:
