Just checking in

Wednesday morning, my hard drive crashed.

This afternoon, my new hard drive arrived.  After some difficulty what with pieces not seeming to be the correct size and shape, I figured it out and installed the new hard drive.  And reinstalled Windows.  And then updated my graphics driver so that I could actually use ALL of my screen, rather than a 5x8" section in the middle.  And installed a bunch of other things, like my web browser of choice (Opera) and other programs, such as virus protection and sypware detection and so forth.

And now I have to attempt to remember all my bookmarked websites.  However, there was a reason I bookmarked them - so I wouldn't have to remember them.

Funny how that works.

But that would explain the lack of posting and the lack of pictures - I haven't installed all the stuff for my camera yet.  Or ripped all my songs off my iPod.  Or any of the other thousand things one must do to set up a computer to their specifications.

Minus working a 7 hour shift tomorrow, leaving the barn at 7am for a horse show on Sunday (and taking a mostly white horse, meaning I'll be up and at the barn by 6am to bathe the horse), I should be up and running in now time.

And thanks for the comments on my last post.

I got nothing

(written late last night, posted late tonight.)

Much whining, not so much knitting or interesting stuff. Read at your own risk.

Where to start?

I haven't written in a long time, mostly because I wasn't quite sure what to say. Not knitting much - just frantically working on sock pal socks (started the second, and know I can finish before August 7th, so long as I keep up the pace). Not reading much - must knit. Not sleeping much - must knit.

I'm here, til I leave for Europe, and then back here again (well, except for holiday breaks and the like) til after graduation in the spring.

In addition, I've felt sickly since Thursday. You know that feeling that occurs about 4 minutes before you violently lose the contents of your stomach? That comes and goes, along with a headache. Nothing seems to really make me feel better other than sleeping, but per usual when I'm sick, I am either at work or doing something else that requires I remain awake when I most want to sleep and yet, can't fall asleep when I finally collapse into bed at night.

(Man, I really love long sentences.)
