she is excellent, and now we know why

We just got back from the high school Evening of Excellence.  Parents get a written invitation if their child is being honored and we pay some money, get a delicious chicken dinner and get to watch our children's excellence being honored.  Problem was, we didn't know what Angel #4 did to be excellent this year.  Last year she went to state for music, so we knew, but this year she wasn't in any music classes, so we were lost.  Well, it turns out she earned an academic letter, which is pretty cool.  You get points for being on the high honor roll and when you get 16 points, you get a letter.  So, turns out she's excellent in being smart.  Yay for her!!

I finally hit the worst of frustration with my old computer and I went out and get a new computer yesterday.  I've been putting it off because of my fear/hatred of Windows 8.  But I've been doing a lot of bookkeeping lately for our business, which has gone through some pretty major changes and I really needed to upgrade in order to get the books done.  I've now got a cute little blue HP Stream.  I'm getting used to windows 8, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.  I really hate getting new technology, phones, computers, etc, are such a pain to get all personalized.  One thing I'm really liking about the new computer is the keyboard.  I never really the keyboard on my old computer, it never seemed to work right, but this one is a joy to type on.  All my other laptops have been HP's, except for my previous one, which was a Toshiba, so maybe that was it.  I guess I just prefer an HP keyboard.  I think I"ll like this little guy once I get all used to it.

I"m planning on getting the garden planted tomorrow, weather permitting.  It's been kind of cold lately, but I think it's going to warm up.  I can't wait to get those little seeds in the ground and see them start growing.  I love gardening.
