My SIL is going through a rough patch right now and is really short on cash (aren't we all?) but I've been drooling over this hutch/desk for months now, and when she offered it to me so dang cheap, I just couldn't refuse.
And never fear - Jessie has my old one in her room. Honestly, the things they want these kids to do in school (in 3rd grade) requires her to be on the internet 2-3 nights a week for a 1/2 hour. So she's got our old computer in her room, with internet connection, to hopefully help her study better.
So I set her up with what websites she can get on (I have everything else blocked so she can't stumble somewhere she shouldn't) and that way, if she wants to get on a different website, I have to go in there and change the settings. That's the wonderful thing about Verizon DSL - GREAT parental controls....And she has her math games on this computer - the deal being she has to do 15-20 minutes of Math 5 times a week.
I did get some sewing in last night - but this is the only picture I took:

And this morning at 6:00 we were outside moving round bales. The bales that Todd baled last week heated up and were smelling pretty bad. So Todd got up early and moved them outside so we didn't burn the barn down:
