Has it really been 20 days?

I'm finally adding a new post to my blog and have missed reading all my friends' blogs! The family and I went to Colorado for a week during spring break and I was already feeling like it had been a long time since I'd gotten caught up. Then when I tried to turn on my computer at 2 am the night we got home, it made this slow, loud, painful sound. It didn't sound good. I tried to reboot it a couple of times, then my husband diagnosed it and informed me it was history.

So luckily, my husband is a genious and rebuilt my computer for me and I'm up and running again with the lastest, greatest computer in the household. I have Windows new operating system, Vista, which uses tabs. I have yet to appreciate that, as I'm a slow learner in these matters. We are such a computer family because of my husband's enthusiasm and professional background. He designs computer chips, therefore, each person in our family has a computer. I'm not sure how or why that is. It's not like everyone in our family owns his or her own set of stainless mixing bowls and Santuko knives, due to my pampering.

Being married to a computer whiz does come in handy. So, now that I have a new computer, I plan to add some photos and journaling of our latest shenanigans. I do appreciate all the comments from friends and family. And want to say a big "THANK YOU" to Kelly for helping me. Thanks, Honey! You're amazing. I'm sure I'll understand all the new bells and whistles eventually.

I have been wondering where you were! Glad your computer is fixed- I would freak out if mine broke down. Plus I am not married to a computer whiz like you, I have to be my own computer whiz!
Kelly said…
It feels like it's been ages to me too! Trust me, I was freaking out. I have PC orders that I've been waiting to submit that were only on MY computer!

Funny that you spelled WHIZ like that because when I was about to add my post, Kelly saw it and said, "I thought WHIZ was short for wizard. So then I edited it to spell that way, wiz. What SHOULD it be, Mrs. Newspaper Lady?

Hi Kelly, glad you are back, too! I just checked my dictionary, and whiz means wizard. Doesn't make sense, but there it is. You are lucky to have a computer "whiz" in your home. Neither of us is very good with them, so I have a young friend who comes once a week or so for an hour and helps us. We make lists each week of things to ask him. He has been a lifesaver! Heidi is going to add your blog to my blog list since I read it all the time anyway. Thanks for making contact!
Kelly said…
Yeah! Thanks for that answer, Bobbi! When your comment to my blog came, I was reading YOUR blog and then clicked on the link about Stephanie Meyer's book. My daugher will be thrilled to read that too, as she's a huge fan.

I so look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs and am excited that we've "found" each other through Heidi...the BLOG WHIZ!

Okay, now that I look back at the post, I cannot bear to see wiz spelled that way and am going to edit it because it reminds me of the crudely slang meaning of wiz, which I will leave at that.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
