Friday was a bummer since I was supposed to get my new fridge and it was too big. (thank you saleslady that promised it would fit). So I spent my afternoon making phone calls and setting up delivery for a smaller model. Friday night we just chilled and watched some DVRd episodes of WIPEOUT.

Saturday we headed to the Pumpkin Farm that we go to each year. They have all kinds of things to do: corn maze, wagon rides, animals, pumpkin cannon and all sorts of climbing things for the kids (hay bales, an old combine, corn bin, tractor tire pile). We ended up skipping the corn maze because it was so crazy hot that the kids were just wiped out. We headed home and everyone needed showers!

Today we went to church and then grabbed some things at Wally World. The boys did some raking before Ben headed to a friend's house. The younger two and I are just hanging out right now. Ribs are in the crockpot for dinner. And I see more raking in our future once it cools off a bit this evening. :-)

So what kind of laptop did you get? Did the old one die or just time for a new one?

Sounds like you had a busy weekend! Is DS off school tomorrow for Columbus Day? My kids are...............and they will be doing yardwork. LOL

local friend of mine had to replace the fridge while her hubby was deployed as well and it JUST BARELY fit into the cutout.

Ribs sounded good! This one is a Toshiba Satellite, like I had before. Our desktop is dying so we are going to replace that with my HP laptop (not quite a year old) and I get this one cuz I loved my old one. It was on clearance so good price on it. Just busy moving things around now. And my kids had school on Columbus Day
