Are We Nerds or What?

I guess this picture says it all! The three of us....Jason, Joy, and me sitting on the deck last night after supper, with our laptops (well that was my seat with the laptop in the chair)....doing what we do on our laptops......me reading blogs and emails, Jason actually working from home, and Joy playing games.



It was nice while it lasted....a little breeze by the pool....until the mosquitoes decided to visit.



Then we moved inside to the sunporch.....







Life is good! :)

I saw a commerical for an 'Off fan'. It just clips to you or you sit it on a surface next to you and it repels mosquitos. No spray on you.

My daughter loves her laptop. She saved up half and we took the rest of the cost. Plays webkinz and games AND created blogs. Fun stuff.

In the event you and your family qualify for being nerds, the world needs more nerds like you. You don't see many families doing anything together anymore so this is very refreshing.
Have a wonderful day.

Hey, at least you were in the same room. We sometimes end up with me crafting, Tay in her room or on the computer and Mike on Ebay!

At least your all together on your laptops! :) I think it still counts as 'family time'.

Hope your having a great Thursday,
Debbie

We're a desktop family, and you can find us in the basement on our various computers every evening [smile].

Love the pictures! Oh that pool sigh.....Nothing wrong with being a laptop family as long as you are all doing it together. :)

We bought tikki torches that clamped to our deck and they helped wonders with the mosquitos.

That's so funny, Tammy - at least you were all moving around the house together!

We have TERRIBLE mosquitos and chiggers - one of the drawbacks of summer!

At least you aren't sharing one computer....could mean trouble!!! The mosquitoes have been horrible here. I think it's because we have had an usual amount of rain this spring. I can't go outside without spraying for any length of time. Have a great day!

Sounds like me! Now my husband is wanting a laptop too, so he can go all around with it. At least my son hasn't said he wants one, yet.

Janene said...

Tammy~Your family is as "nerdy" as ours!
Glad to see that we are not alone!
Have a good weekend!

Family time nerds that is priceless.
It is nice to see a family doing things together even laptop time.
It has been storming everyday so we have not had any patio time.
I am going to try the Off fan.So that if we do finally get to go outside we will be ready.

LOL,so many laptops, so little time! We only have 1 computer as we are old fashioned, lol! I LOVE your sunporch, that is awesome:)Thanks for your kind words on my blog, hubby came home this morning and is "clicking" around the house on his walker:)

Colleen said...

Looks good to me, Tammy! We've had a few days of rain here and we're all just chomping at the bit for some more outdoor time.

Have a great afternoon, my friend...

Don't know why but this reminded me of the story of the three bears! Maybe it needs to be rewritten to include laptops instead of just beds, chairs, and porridge?

No way! You have a 3 laptops and your own pool! No fair! :)
That seems like a lot of fun! To vad the mosquitoes came... it looked do relaxing out there!
Have a great day!

Farm Chick Paula said...

Not nerds... what was that George Jones song? "High-tech Rednecks?" LOL
I think it's cute how you all were all involved in your own little laptops, Tammy!

Cottage Rose said...

Hello Tammy; Oh what cute photos, your family looks just like mine. Hubby and I do the same thing in the evening. I surf blogs and emails, and he works from home now until the Lord brings him a new job... Your little one is just so cute and such a computer expert... lol.....

Hugs;

The pool looks nice. :) We just have a desktop computer but I'm sure if we had laptops, that would be dangerous. It would be attached to me at the hip!! LOL

Linda said...

Wow! 3 laptops! We don't even have one! I'd love to have one but we are still on dial-up.
I love that your family does so much together. You are so blessed!
