I have to tell you that I couldn't have gotten any luckier this round of Secret Pal if I had tried. My wonderful pal sent me the neatest virtual bouquet yesterday. Just because. How awesome is that? Thank you so much secret pal! You rock! I love the smiley faces. I think they're the reason my husband is still breathing. :-)
Anyone want another husband? I'd be happy to sell mine today. Actually, I'd gladly give him away. When we got the new computer my husband appointed himself "King of Backup" and set out moving things from the old computer to the new one. Since he's the master of networking he also took on hooking the 3 machines together to share the internet. Now, instead of downloading things on the new machine he's been doing it on our old one which is now in Dan's room. He started having trouble yesterday and had to disconnect the anti-virus program on our old machine. Of course as soon as he did this we picked up a virus. How did I find this out you ask? Sue sent me an email asking if I had meant to send her some nonsense about eBay. Of course I hadn't. I knew right then that we had a virus. I was confused because I thought the new anti-virus was working really well. That was when Bran told me what he had done and that he still had my address book and Money on the old machine. Normally I wouldn't panic like I did today but since I finally got Microsoft Money set back up again it was a big deal. I was mortified to think that some freak online might have our account information. So I ran upstairs to delete my address book and Money. I couldn't do anything with the computer. When I turned it on it started screaming at me that it had a virus and that it was infected. No shit Sherlock. Bran was able to get it to boot finally and I deleted all my stuff. Bran told me to go ahead and delete everything on the desktop of the old machine because it had all been transferred. So I did. A little while later I was downstairs and for some reason decided to look for a pattern in my folder. Guess what? My folder is gone. Where did it go? I deleted it when my husband told me to. Why? Because I'm an idiot who hasn't learned that I need to not listen to a word my husband says. His folders are all cleaned up and nicely organized on the new machine so what in the world made me think that he would have actually done the same for me??? Any takers???
I taught a magic loop sock class yesterday that was great fun. I only had two people sign up but it was still great. They were a mother/daughter duo and they were just lovely. The daughter is probably in her late teens and knits continental. She knits as fast as I do. I thinking if I could learn to knit continental too I could really heat up the old needles. Think of all the time it would save if I could pick instead of throwing. I have to put this on my list of things to try this year. I'll attempt this as soon as I master a damn cast on for a toe up sock using magic loop.
