Jason and Laura are busy preparing for Nicole's graduation party this weekend and wouldn't you know they developed a plumbing problem. The problem was solved and this is Jason getting things put back together.
Computers generate a great deal of heat and laptops are no exception so I put some extra legs on mine to get it off any surface it rests upon allowing free flow of air beneath it. These were stick ons and I stacked them two high. I believe we purchased them in a hardware store.

Well, our little Angel has settled in and settled down. Each night gets better and I think she is now as good as she is going to get. She has sniffed out and inspected every nook and cranny. And now on to us....If this weather ever settles out to something decent I need to get an exercise routine established. I feel like I have lost ground in that department. We have done some things around the house, window cleaning and such. I have hopes that tomorrow we may see the sun. That would be different...Smile!

This was taken while Angel was still at her "Winter Home". She is now with us in Jefferson IA and not very happy about her situation. We put in quite a night with her crying and bouncing off the walls. I have disturbed her sleep several times today in hopes she will settle down tonight and sleep so we all can! She is really quite adaptable but it does take awhile. We are getting settled in and catching up on news and events in the old hometown...till next time.
