Darn trojan spyware viruses!

I'm still here. I've had a heck of a time getting online this weekend. I got some stupid spyware trojan. We didn't open it but it wouldn't go away. I ran my malware remover time and time again but it didn't catch it. Spybot failed me, too. Finally, after googling and googling, I realized that this was a brand new terror. There was no mention of it before last week. So, duh, I updated my malware remover and it caught it right away. All that aggravation and the solution was so simple. All that to say, I couldn't post because my online time was being hijacked by fools.

My Thanksgiving weekend turned out okay. Mom and I ate alone on Thursday but others came in and out during the day. We had the pleasure of the company of a young couple who regularly join us on holidays. (They don't have much family here and what they do have don't celebrate holidays.) Alli, Boy Wonder, and Elvis stopped by. (We were the middle stop in their series of three family dinners.) Beth didn't show at all. A long-ago, now-grown kid of mine and her beautiful family was in town for the holiday. They had bio family celebrations to attend, too, but I got to spend a lot of time with them. It was a joy! So, pity party over. Even though my kids may be done with me on holidays, I still had a decent day and an even better long weekend.

The weather guy got my hopes up, forecasting snow last night and today. We got it, alright, but it was above freezing so it didn't stick. We trudged on to school and I tried to make the best of it. My students were loud but happy all day. We enjoyed watching the snow fall. It's still snowing a little and sleeting...maybe it will stick as the temps drop tonight? I'm hopeful!! I really like my job. I just like days off, too.

Member me saying the four worst words to hear were "mom, I'm pregnant..." I heard them last night... Yes, I too am going to be a grandmother to a child of parents who are uninsured, under-employed, and fairly useless; who believe that Obama is going to bail them out of the mess they made of their lives by handing them a meal ticket, insurance and the easy life...
Hum, I wonder... could this be some sort of replay movie like "Click"???

Well, at least I don't feel so alone now! Good luck. If I come up with any solutions, I'll let you know.

I've got a solution. Gett'em a dog first. Then they'll have something to love and be loved by.
