Is This Thing On? anybody still there?

I'm finally back after a fairly long hiatus from blogging.  Did you miss me?  Did you wonder where I was or what was going on?  Even if you didn't, pretend you did, it makes me feel important.  In a nutshell, here's what's kept me away from the computer:
  • My anniversary
  • My mom's birthday
  • Mother's Day
  • My son's Prom
  • My daughter's multiple end of the year school projects
Add to the list: 1 - I had a painful issue with my left leg.  My choices were to take ibuprofen, which barely made a dent in the pain, or take the prescription pain killer that made me too drowsy to do much of anything.  I'm feeling better now.  2 - Mr. Willoughby and I cleaned the basement.  Our water heater leaked and soaked a few things on the floor.  One of them was a box of books which turned into a box of mold.  You can imagine how much a germophobe like me enjoyed cleaning up that mess.  3 - The gas company is replacing the gas main in our neighborhood.  They've been digging up streets and yards.  We had to chose between taking down our bar and disassembling our back porch (where the old meter was located) or letting them put the new monstrosity of a meter in our shrub/flower bed.  We chose the latter (but I'm not happy with the results).  4 - We opened our pool for the season.  We waited too long to close it last fall and ended up putting the cover on without removing all of the fallen leaves from the water.  It currently looks like 10,000 gallons of iced tea.  Care for a swim, anyone??  5 - Technical issues.  My computer stops recognizing my mouse every few minutes.  It takes forever to complete any task.

So what's new with you?   I'll be spending some time trying to get caught up with all of your blogs, but please feel free to update me in my comment section.  

Glad to be back,
