Things seem to be running smoothly at the moment.

It's been a helluva long week. Seriously.

Teenagers. Dog. Rapidly dying computer. Actually, the teenagers and dog were a lot of fun to have around. (The cats strongly disagree with me. They are not fond of teenagers or dogs.)

The dying computer.

Not so fun.

I mean, it didn't just get slow. It's pretty much dead as a doornail today. I turned it on and it was like, "um, no, I don't think so."

Fortunately I am typing to you on my new and fabulous iMac. But let's face it, a new computer is still a bit of a headache. I've been looking at this machine practically nonstop since we got home from Albuquerque yesterday. There have been a few glitches with various things. Things that I got overly obsessed with and wasted a lot of time. Now I finally have all my software loaded, scanner and printer hooked up, iTunes playing some INXS (Shabooh Shoobah remains one of my favorite albums) and a beer in hand. (For the record, I am not a huge fan of Fat Tire these days, but I'll take what I can get.)

I've been pretty overwhelmed and out of sorts all day, but I am calming down a bit now. Granted I still have a lot to do. I am behind on knitting projects, i.e. my work income these days, and I need to get back to it. I have four bags knitted that need to be felted and a couple more skeins of yarn to be knitted into more bags. Tomorrow I plan to pull myself away from the computer and focus on those projects. A nice run in the morning might do me some good too.

Oh and last night I finished reading The Time Traveler's Wife. It is one of the best books I have read in awhile. I was totally glued to it and feel a bit sad that when I go to bed tonight, I am going to have to pick up a different book. It was such an intense and engaging story. I am glad that Erin mentioned it recently, reminding me that it was something I've always wanted to read.


  1. first: oh man, i'm so glad you read it! i can't ever seem to express to anyone how much it rocks!!

    second: hooray for new macs! i practically forced my parents to get one last year, and they love it! i hope you love yours too :)

  2. I'm the Fat Tire fairy, I'm afraid. But from now on I promise I'll only bring Malt Liquor ;)
