Computers, Husbands, and other such stuff

Okay, for those of you who love Norton AntiVirus, you may want to stop now and read no further. For those of you who don't like it or don't care, you may continue.

I am so horribly disgusted with Norton that I could scream and, actually, did! I finally got so upset with it tonight after days of problems, no email and other such nonsense, I uninstalled it and went back to my beloved McAfee, which I'm downloading as I type this. I was really happy with McAfee, but the price was more than Norton, so I went the cheap route and have paid for it ever since. However, when I went to the McAfee website tonight, they are having a fantastic deal and so I was able to get the program for our three computers for less than I paid for that horrible Norton at Costco. Never, never again will I not get McAfee!!

It's not worth the frustration and aggravation that my hubby and I go through!! It's especially upsetting to my hubby as his computer is his business and when he can't do things on there, it's not only frustrating, it affects business and we can't have that!

Speaking of business, I am now officially working in my husbands home office. I moved my computer in here and have a "new" desk where I will do all his paperwork. I'm very happy with how we arranged things and while there is still more organizing to do, it's very nice and we are both really happy to be working together again. I know it's going to help him, plus it's helping me to fill some of my time that used to be spent with my homeschooling. Now that my last son is in 11th grade, he doesn't need his Mom's help hardly at all. It's a blessing and a curse, if you know what I mean.

I've been so excited at how the new ministry I'm doing at my church is going. I've had great feedback on it and I'm so glad to be able to serve the Lord in this way.

Oh, my! I know I've talked about this before, but I must tell you again about my bible study I'm doing with the ladies of my church. It's the Beth Moore, "Believing God" study.

Tuesday's teaching was SO powerful, I'm telling you, ladies, I just sat there and wept the whole time! This study is bringing me closer than ever to my Lord and is making me see how awesome it really is to BELIEVE GOD!! If you ever get a chance to do this study, DO IT! You'll be so blessed and enriched by it!!

Saturday is my youngest son's birthday! I can't believe he will be 17 years old! Now my children will be 17 and 19. Not exactly "children" anymore but young men. They are great, though, and this birthday is going to be a great one for him!!

I'll be posting pictures of the birthday boys soon!

God bless you ~ Julie

  1. We almost lost our first computer because of Norton Virus software. It was never the same after we almost lost it. Have you ever heard of AVG? It's free and it's one of the best things out there at the moment. We have ours for three years now.
    I love Beth Moore, she has so much spiritual depth.
    How wonderful you both can work together at home. What kind of home business does your husband own?


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
