Closing Out November

Still laptop-less but at least I'm home. My man is headed to the store today to find the part that is hopefully the problem. This is one of those times that it's great being married to a computer engineer!

My boy and I had a great visit to Rice University yesterday, which is my man's alma mater. It's an awesome school but one of my biggest impressions is "cha-ching, cha-ching!" We'll have to see how generous their Financial Aid Department is.

And it's been awhile since my hair has been quite as frizzy as it was yesterday when we toured the campus in 80 degree weather and 120% humidity! It was one of those days where the covered walkways were wet even though it hadn't rained!

As another November draws to a close, I've once again enjoyed participating in the Giving Thanks Challenge hosted by Leah at South Breeze Farm. As in previous years, I am posting the complete list so I can remind myself in the future of those things for which I was especially thankful this month.

Hey Linda! I'm following your computer meltdown on your blog. Hope it's fixed soon! I know little about Rice University, but just Googled it and WOW! Neat school! Must be some terribly smart kids that go there according to the statistics! (your son will fit right in!) I have all of that to look forward to next year!
