A BIG shout-out to Danny Cahill he was The Biggest Loser last night and he is from our lil town of Broken Arrow. WTG Danny!
My sweet lil Jess was looking for quotes to make me a special Christmas present when my PC was attacked by that dreaded virus. The guys over at PC Data Recovery in BA had to give me a new hard drive, while I lost ALL my programs, seriously I did have 3 rows of programs installed now I have a nice manageable 15 programs total(not rows).
They were able to save all my pictures, I was in the process of uploading them all to Picasa and when I took my pc in for repair I said PLEASE save my pictures even if the pc isn't fixable PLEASE save my pictures. I have 4 years worth of pictures on this computer!
So now that I am 'hooked' back up I am taking some precautions...
IE is gone I am now a Firefox user. For the most part the FF transition was easy but pages look different in FF every-bodys font is the same and I know that is not the case, so any firefox pros out there want to give me some pointers, tips and hints? For example FF has a built in spell checker-you should see all the red underlined words in this post-how I do I spell check a word? Where do I click in this new browser of mine?
McAffe is also gone I am now an AVG user and since McAffe is gone I was able to re-add spybot I really really really like having spybot back on my computer.
I am curious what everyone else uses to browse the netters and what program you use to protect your PC?
Yesterday was the faloozies aka my sister Birthday-that's her up there, she won't mind me telling you her age, she turned 38 we are the same age for 10 days-yes you read that right...Happy Birthday sis I Love You!
In Feb Eric and I will celebrate our 13th anniversary with a trip to my very favorite place Eureka Springs You may be asking yourself why is Georgie talking about her anniversary when it's 2 months off, well, I will tell you why...
There is no other town like ES, it is a victorian village, quaint and it runs on a slower pace, there isn't a stoplight in the whole town, it is the only place I never feel like I need a vacation from my vacation, I get giddy just knowing I will be there very soon and this is the time that I, Georgie start planning our trip. Last night we made our reservation for lodging and this is where we will be staying....

A little unknown fact about me-I have set the treehouse cottage site as my homepage and will read and re-read the site no less than 20 times a day FOR REALS leading up to the time we leave, I will imagine myself sitting out on the private deck sipping my morning coffee, I will imagine myself soaking in the jacuzzi ahhhhhhh
If you have ever been to Eureka Springs, Ar then you know the pull this town can have on you. If you have never been to ES then I highly recommend stealing your sweetie pie away for a weekend, you will Thank me...
I have already burned through 2 ricks of firewood, today is the first day we actually qualified for a fire it is 22 degrees out. I think I might have a problem and may need a 12-step program or attend some firewood burners anon meetings-Eric isn't to happy about having to go get me some more wood today in this cold
If your Birthday is this month don't forget to stop by Sephora for your FREE Birthday gift-I got 3 lil lip glosses that Jess has already laid claim to-oh well it was exciting getting them if only briefly
While browsing through the pics on the pc I was reading some of the folder names-Abby has A LOT of folders and I was just a gigglin' at some of the names she gave her folders here are a few
'me i love me'-a nice collection of her taking pics of herself in the mirror
'amazing pics of abby' a collection of B&W photos
'FIREEEEEEE' well here I will show you one of these-I have no clue why she titled this folder FIREEEEEEE but that pic just freaks me out!
My confession for today: Gosh it's GOOD to be back!
