Delena is out the door, but the rest of the house is still asleep.

Scratch that.  I just heard little footsteps over my head, so someone is awake, probably stumbling out of bed to turn on the TV, then fall back in for a few more minutes.

The snow has stopped, but there are still freezing temps outside, so it's a bit treacherous.  The jeep was unstuck as of last night, so that's good.  With warmer temperatures coming, I am hopeful for a thaw and temporary reprieve before the next snowfall comes. 

My computer is broken for the time being.  I'm updating on Delena's, so I won't be around much today.  I'll check mail from time to time.

Evidently, my computer thinks it's permanently asleep (which means dead, I think).  Maybe just a coma.  The computer lights come on, but the monitor says "no signal."  I cleaned all of the connections, but even though the monitor is getting power, it's not getting a signal.  My techies, Eric and David, will look it over in the next few days.  It'll get going somehow.

Meanwhile, I guess it's time for a bit of a break.  Like I said, I will be checking email from time to time and posting new columns as they come in, but I won't be haunting the computer chair as I usually do.

If I don't talk to you before, have a brilliant weekend and by all means, be particular.




Who I am:  I started my life as Katrina Marie Chapman and it was promptly learned that my beloved grandfather was unable to pronounce my name, so I became Kathy Chapman.  When I married my first husband, I became Kathy Humphrey.  When we divorced and later remarried, I was still Kathy Humphrey, but I started using my legal name with my new job as a preschool administrator and became Katrina Humphrey.  Then I married Eric Rasbold and became Katrina Rasbold.  Here, I'm just me.
