Sorry for the lack of posts recently, we've been having some computer problems. It started when a CD exploded - and yes I do mean that - inside the CD-drive. We bought a new drive and I tried to replace it, but when that didn't work we took it to a shop. The guy at the shop said something else was wrong with it, so he deleted everything we had inside the computer - excluding my dad's estimates. Anyway we haven't had the computer since last Wednesday, so I'm sorry if I haven't had the chance to reply to any of your e-mail, comments etc.

I just finished an awesome book that I think everyone should read. It's called "A thousand tomorrows". I guess you could probably call it a girls book because its a love story, but its more than that because of the circumstances in the book. I cried more than once, especially because the boy has a brother with down-syndrome who reminds me so much of my brother. I loved it and it is definitely on my list of best books!

I had a swim meet last weekend. Not exactly something I was looking forward to, but it ended up not being as bad as I thought it could have been. There were only eight older swimmers from Rivi, so it was a more personal meet. Therese told me what to remember while I was swimming before my event and then told me what to work on afterwards. I dropped at least 4 seconds in every one of the four events I swam. But I had a lot of fun cheering for my friends and I think as long as I don't stress myself out I do fine.

And I should to stop talking because I have Worldview to finish. And remember if you comment you'll make my day! :)

Finally! Someone else who will play a song by a non-white! I didn't think I'd ever see (I mean, hear) that...

I didn't know CD's could explode!
