Why do I do this to myself???
I can't just do something simple. Like buy a new mouse, hook it up, and leave go at that. OH NO- Not ME! What started off as a simple project ended up as an all afternoon, frustrating, pain in my back ( which I still have!) enterprise in computer maintainance 101!
New keyboard and mouse ( both wireless ), A new desk chair ( Very Comfortable!) and mat to roll it on. But of course, I just had to move the desk out from the wall, and try to "contain" all the wires that are left. Which meant uncovering an area that hasn't seen the light of day in a couple of years. After moving said desk,( and guiding Jimmy Hoffa out of the room lol!) I found out what happened to about 10 pens, 3 or 4 CD's, and mass quantities of stuff for which I'll plead the 5th! So 3 hours later ( I kid you NOT!) All new stuff was assembled/programed/cleaned and otherwise dealt with. Remind me of this if I EVER get one of those ideas again? PLEASE!!!!?????
Other than that, things are relatively calm. But that will last about 1 hour more, until a certain team takes the field. Right now I'm starting yet another project. My kids have been bugging me to make a new afgan for the livingroom ( the old one having gone in the trash last summer, it had seen better days!). Becky had expressed an interest in learning how to crochet, so that's what we're doing. I'm making an afgan, and Becky's making a Koala Bear! Then she's going to make more animals for Kim, and possibly her friends as gifts! That, candles, soap, and my potpourri- heck, I won't have to "buy" any gifts this year! At least, that's the plan. I have to pay off christmas, and save for a possible "trek" this summer. Works for me, anyway.
And work Friday went pretty well. D actually talked to me, and I gave her some suggestions. So perhaps some things will be ironed out soon. I know we're finally getting less problems with all the new insurances. And the schedule has been adjusted to make sure that someone with experience is always there to help, if needed. So I'm no longer dreading going into work. Makes life much easier that way!
Well, I'd better get the heck off this thing. I have to get my stuff together for the game ( baby carrots to munch, terrible towel at the ready, etc.) I'll catch you all later, after the game if I can. If not, Tomorrow night for sure ;-)
Peace and Love, KC.
