Computer Sickness

Our computer is sick, it wont even start up all the way before it blue screens of death. We took it to Best Buy on Thursday to see if they could figure out what was wrong with it. They said it would take 3-5 days for them to do the diagnostic test on it then they would give us a call, if it's a hardware issue we don't have to pay to get it fixed, if it's a software issue we do. We dragged out our old laptop and have been using it to get online. I hate this thing, its so freaking slow, I am typing faster than the words are showing up on the page so I have to keep going back to fix mistakes and it takes even longer. Not to mention that this is the laptop that likes to shut itself off. something else I just noticed is it tends to not register all the keys that I hit or if it does it puts them in the wrong order or adds to many of them. I hope we get our computer back soon, cause this thing is going to drive me nuts. I have more I want to type out but am at the point where I am about to throw this computer out the window so I will save that all for later.

Chick Lit

I made this cute little chick, eggs and nest yesterday while watching Smallville with Richard. I really love how the chick turned out. The picture doesn't do the nest or eggs justice, they turned out pretty good too, but I just love the chick.

I have read 30 books so far this year, I am on my 31st right now. I'm reading I Am Number Four. So far I'm really enjoying it and it seems to be a quick read. Before that I read One for the Money, by Janet Evanovich, which was also a good read and I am looking forward to reading the rest of her books that I have in that series as well. I'm not quite sure what book I'm going to read after I finish the one I'm on now, I guess that all depends on the mood I'm in.

Not much else going on here, I have been mostly catching myself up on Smallville, reading and playing with clay, I have another great idea as a gift for my brother to make out of clay I just got to do some research on it to see how easy or hard it's going to be for me to make it.

Playing with Clay

I have been playing around with clay a lot lately and this little bow is just the most recent thing I have made. It has a magnet on the back of it and is now sitting on my fridge. I have also made a butterfly magnet and a forget-me-not magnet as well. The butterfly is going to a dear friend of mine who is up from Texas visiting and the forget me not went to a lady I know who works at the video store down the street from here. I liked the way it turned out but it was the wrong shade of blue, it was too dark but she loved it so I let her have it.

I need to get busy and get my brothers birthday gift made for him. It too is going to be made out of clay, I just need to sit down and make it. But his birthday is still over a month away so I have the time but I just might need all that time to get the shape right and everything. I like to make sure I have plenty of time to get it right.

The week of Blahs

I haven't had any energy this week. Yesterday I managed to get the dishes done and today I picked up the living room but I still have stuff I need to get done and here I sit with no desire to do them. I hate when I get this lazy. I ended up having to put Kramer in kitty time out this morning cause he wasn't letting me get my work done at all, he kept getting under foot and then getting mad at me when I would step on him or trip over him, so I locked him in the spare room for about an hour so I could get the living room picked up.

I have been dealing with dizzy spells again this week. I hate when I get them. I do the exercises that the doc told me to do a few years ago when I first got them and they go away. but this time they seem to be hanging on a bit longer. I wonder if my allergies have anything to do with that? They aren't bad and only happen when I do certain things so that's nice.

7th wedding anniversary/camping

We came home early from camping, we were going to stay till today but it was just too cold for us so we came home yesterday. Camping was fun till we went to bed, where I proceeded to freeze to death till 2am then gave up and went and slept in the truck till morning. I am not put off from camping though, we will go camping again this summer when its a bit warmer out.

Today marks 7 years of marriage for us. We are taking it easy today. Richard made lunch for us and is going to make dinner as well. Depending on the day I find it hard to believe that it's been 7 years since we said I do, other days it feels like its been ages since we did. We have had our moments when we aren't to happy with one another but those are few and far between and every couple has them. I count myself lucky that I found such a great man who loves and takes care of me the way that he does. Richard spoils me, and not with gifts, just by doing simple things like making dinner or getting me something to drink, or letting me choose what we watch. We are happy together and I hope it stays that way for many more years to come.
