I just got my Christmas present yesterday - a new laptop! I am having fun learning how to use it.
Life has been busy lately, with going to the Temple all day Friday, missionary meetings on Saturday, calling people to see if they can feed the missionaries, going to a friend's house where they had someone over to have the first lesson (which was politely received, but I don't think the couple will want to know more), and so on.
The holidays will make life a little busier, but slow down my driving schedule, which is every school day. I have to get DD that learners permit soon, so she can take over the driving in the morning. She won't be able to drive her friends by herself for the first 4 or 5 months, but she will be able to thereafter.

But still sneezing a lot. I bought some Cold Ease today, so maybe that will help me get over this cold I seem to have. I felt bad last week, but I'm feeling better.
We had a lovely vacation in mid October at Swallows Falls near Deep Creek Lake. We camped in the camper, visited Oakland, and surrounding areas, saw Swallows Falls again, took pics (have to learn how to post them here, saw the train museum (which was really more of a gift shop), and bought a turkey dinner from the Apostolic Church in our of the local communities. DH was not so impressed with the turkey dinner, as he prefers the home style dinners we have every year at my father's family's annual Christmas dinner, the White family dinner, the Sunday after Christmas. They really put out a spread, though, with both turkey and ham.
We've been busy this week, and the weekend looks like it will be busy again. Saturday morning we meet with our local Ward Missionaries to see how the missionary effort is going in our Ward - ugh, I hate getting up to be there at 8 AM. Then we will be taking DD to Scouting for food at 11:30 til 2 PM, then DH and I go to serve food at the soup kitchen 5 PM to 7 PM, and have to figure out how to get DD to a dance that is about an hour's drive away in Columbia, MD. I hope other people will be able to drive her there because the dance begins at 7 PM.
