It has been a few days since I posted. It seems that it has just been one thing on top of another that kept me from it. Probably the biggest issue has been Internet access issues here at home. We had a major lightening storm the other night that must have killed my wireless router. It took a while to narrow the problem to the router because the satellite signal must first go through an IDU. To make the story a little shorter, we're hooked directly to the IDU now which means that until I replace the wireless router, I can't use my laptop at home. So, it's wait in line for computer time. Homework always takes precedence.

We had the grand baby here this weekend. She spent Friday night and all day Saturday with us. It was nice to get to keep her. Her parents needed a break. She does take a lot of time though. It was difficult to get anything done while she was here. I understand why a "break" was in order! Maybe I'm just getting old. That's the advantage of grand kids -- you can send 'em home.

Work was crazy today. We are experiencing our "fall run." Fall is when large numbers of cattle are moving about the country. When they move is when our services are in greatest demand. Today we had one of the highest volume days we've had since our company was formed. That's a good thing, but cuts into blogging time also.

The kitchen remodel is proceeding but experienced a couple of setbacks. Such things are to be expected -- nothing major. We are in a short waiting period though. I hope by the end of the week everything will be done except the things that we will be doing ourselves.

Tomorrow evening the in-laws will be stopping for the night as they travel back home from California. They have been to San Diego for my father-in-law's ship reunion from his Navy days. It's good that they can stop, but the house is in a bit of turmoil with the remodeling going on.

With luck Duke may get his cast off tomorrow. It has only been a couple of weeks, but the Vet said that he seems to be healing very quickly. That is the advantage of young, growing bones. I hope it does come off. He started chewing on it rather badly today. I patched it but it's good that he is scheduled for a checkup tomorrow.

Homework does take precedence! If only more of my students said so much...and perhaps their families.

Sounds like you had a great time with your grandkids!

Have a great week!

Wow, I bet spending time with that grandbaby was fun!

Hope things slow down for you a bit AND you get your wireless going...
