I’m back from the Got Girl Friends retreat here in Fairbanks, Alaska. The weekend event was put on by my church, Friends Church, at the Fairbanks Princess Hotel. This was finally an event I went to as an individual, not media, so I have no photos or video to share.
It was a fun weekend, and I got to meet some new ladies (whom I hope to be able to persuade to contribute their expertise here at Home Ever After), as well as spend time with my blog friend in real life, Barb Chasteen of The Forever Neighbor. Barb is a great Christian homeschool mom who knew me from this site before she ever moved to Alaska. I’m glad to have found her in real life as well, and happy that we can share the same church family!
Yes, Our Site was Hacked
If you visited the site last week and got warnings from your antivirus, we apologize. We were hit with two hacks through our hosting company, GoDaddy, along with thousands of other sites over the past few weeks. They have no idea how or why it is happening, and they’re still in investigation mode to hunt down the perpetrators.
Some people say to never admit when you get hacked. I can’t agree with that philosophy – I’m all about honesty. We recommend that you do a full antivirus scan on your machine if you visited our site in the last week, to find any lurking malware that may have jumped on board. Better safe than sorry.
We’ll be continuing to clean and do preventive maintenance every day until GoDaddy assures us it won’t happen again. Thank you for you patience and, as always, we’re so glad to have you with us as our readers!
