We lost our internet connection last night, and I think it was due to trying to download a song on Vuze.  The song sent me to imesh, and I think that's what did it.  Couldn't get on the internet after that and couldn't fix the problem.  I did an AVG system scan and the only error (warning) it showed mentioned Google Chrome.  I was able to delete that error, but it didn't help.  So after church this morning, I found a back way onto the internet and that worked.  I clicked on Google Chrome on my desktop and then I could Google Facebook or any other website I wanted and it worked.  However, all my tool bars were gone, as were my favorites.  When I went to sign into FB, the only email address left from my long list was Layna's!  Awhile later I remembered about System Restore.  So I found that and clicked that I wanted to restore it to April 1 and IT WORKED!!!  Everything was back to normal! Hope it stays OK.

Gary had to preach this morning and Madilyn sang God of This City.  They also did it at Genesee. 

In the afternoon, I was on the computer, and there was a facebook post from Jodie about the snow.  I turned around and it was snowing hard.  After awhile, it turned to rain and made a big mess of deep slush on the roads, and it was 32 degrees.  I had to go pick up Amanda & the kids to go to Oregon Church for a Lenten service and it was white-knuckle driving!  Then I went back & picked up Gary and the potluck dish and he drove on to Oregon.  People said there were cars in the ditch everywhere, and I also heard about overturned cars along the expressway.  Good food at the potluck.  The kids got rambunctious, though, during the musical program. 

I did lots of Amanda's wash as her washer has quit.  Then paid bills for April.

Enjoyed sleeping in on the couch this morning, after getting up about 5:00 a.m.  After Facebook and FarmTown, I took my shower, got ready for the day, and did some work around the house. 

After a bit, we went to Logan's for our lunch/dinner combo.  We got there about 2:40, and I realized the 2/$13.99 didn't start until 3:00.  So we enjoyed the peanuts, pop and rolls until we could order, a little before 3:00.  I ordered my usual Logan's grilled chicken, but Gary tried something new.  He got the bacon and cheddar encrusted steak and thought it was delicious.  We were wary, though, because two men had told us lately that their steaks there were garbage.  In fact, everything was good, and our bill was under $20.  I also had over $7 on a giftcard from Christen to use up.

Then we went to the Clio WalMart to pick up a few things.  I got an eight-pack of Easter cards to send to shut-ins soon.

My sister is now back from Florida and arrived at my mom's at about 6:00 p.m., so Mom will be happy to have them for two or three days.

I'm enjoying watching the eaglecam from Decorah, Iowa.  Good closeup view of the nest.  I just remembered about eaglecams yesterday and was happy to find that one, which had three eggs in it about to hatch!  Well, the first one hatched early this morning, and I'm waiting for the second.  Addictive watching!

Last day of work before Spring Break! Everyone is excited for that, and many staff members and students have trips planned.  Not me, though.  I'm content to stay home and catch up on things.

Met the Rodmans (minus Doug, who was working) at Twin's tonight.  We ordered two pizzas, plus cottage cheese for Madilyn.  Gary and I had a BLT Pizza, but it was greasy on the pan under the crust from the bacon.  Don't think I'd order that again.  Everyone else had pepperoni pizza.  We sat in the front room, and that worked out well.
