The verdict is in.......

It was the hard drive! Now we have to get a new one to install. So, at this point, since I have to replace the hard drive, I'll just upgrade the whold thing, rather than buy new. It'll be cheaper in the long run. We'll just pop in a new hard drive, then after a month or two, I'll upgrade the RAM and processor. Maybe get a new dvd/cd drive so I can burn the short home movies I take with my camera to dvd. Maybe I'll have it back soon.

My Namaste bag (the black one) arrived Friday! And I'll just say that I'm in Heaven! Never again will I have to carry 2 bags, as I can fit the entire contents of my purse and my knitting bag into it's lovely, spaciousness. Well, I won't have to carry 2 bags, as long as I'm not working on a huge project, say, like an afghan. The only issue I had was when someone (I think Katie) knocked it off the picnic table at the Morris family reunion yesterday, and one of my Crystal Palace US 1 DNP's fell out unnoticed. I went back to look for it, but it was gone. *sniff, sniff*

Last week I took the plunge and ordered something else. I ordered the Slim in 6 program. I figured that maybe the reason I haven't gotten off my duff and started working out is because I know what my current work out programs are, and they don't excite me right now. This one looks fun, and motivating. It should arrive by the end of the week, so I'm taking every opportunity I can to be bad before it gets to my door. And as akick in the pants to do soemthing, at the afore mentioned family reunion 3 (count them, 3) of my great-aunts asked me when I was due! Me? Have another child? Nope, 2 is enough, thankyouverymuch. It's definately time to do something about my weight problem, huh?

I finished a pair of footies that I had on the needles. I ended up giving them to Katie, because my gauge was off, and they were a little long for my short feet. Her feet are longer than mine, and the fit her better. I'll have to take pics and get them posted for SAM KAL 4 credit for August.

Just a reminder, the Harvest Sock Swap '07 sign ups are still open. You have 19 days left to sign up.

I still have 2 spots left for the Pay It Forward Exchange. If you'd like to sign up for that one, just leave me a comment with you e-mail address.

Maybe I'll swipe Mr. S's laptop later and try to post some pics. Hee Hee!

Hi! I'm so sorry you've been having computer problems! That being the case, I'm sure you probably have not received my emails and I'm so sorry. I don't want you to think that I'm ignoring you, because that most definitely is not the case!

I've been shopping for you and planning what I hope will be a wonderful FFBE package for you! I had emailed you to see if there were any special colors you wanted for your bag and when I didn't hear back, I just chose on my own. But since you have had problems on your end, I will keep that question open! If there are colors that you really would love in a bag, please let me know and I'll try my best to make that happen for you.

Have a great day!

Your FFBE buddy

Too bad you lost your needle. :(

My friend that I just visited in Calgary is still a skinny little runt. Eats like a pig still, too. (But not much junk food.) She hauled me off to the gym one day, and I really got to see how out of shape I am! Lordy!
