A little bit about my day, my family, and my knitting.

Doncha just hate it when you are feeling SOOOO good and then something comes along to frustrate the hell out of you?
I was feeling good....last night Gerry and I went on a casino cruise sponsored by his boss. Every year, sometimes twice, the boss has a business meeting at someplace special. Last year they went to a baseball game and sat in one of those air-conditioned booths complete with food and drink. They also went on a casino cruise for the evening. This time the boss invited the significant others. In spite of not winning a cent, we had a fun evening. Gerry picked me up at work, we ate at Mangos, a good restaurant on Las Olas, an "in" avenue in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We were not sure what kind of food was being served on the boat ) we've gone before and sometimes the food is just tiny deli soll sandwiches and a little salad. So we had soup and seafood salads (I saved half of mine) before going to the boat. The food WAS good, a nice hot buffet with a pretty good selection. After their meeting we played the slots a bit and then danced the rest of the evening. When I got home, there was a package from me. I had been RAOK'd for the first time.....Joni sent me beautiful beaded stitch markers that will fit onto small needles. I was ELATED!!!! are GREAT!! In spite of getting to sleep around 2 AM, I woke before 7 to get to my LYS for a BIG sale they were having at 9 AM on winter weight yarns. When I got there (and it's not that close to home) I was told by the guard (the building wasn't open yet) that the sale is TUESDAY morning (which is a bummer cause I work). Of course, I had to call home and confirm this with Gerry, who read the sale card and....sure enough...TUESDAY!!! Ok, I thought, I will go to Costco to get some things. I was almost at the exit when I realized that I had left my card in my other wallet! Did I let it get me down...nope! There's always tomorrow, I thought. So I stopped and got wipers for my car, did a little shopping for my secret pal4 and my secret pal at work, then came home to my NEW COMPUTER to upload pictures of my RAOK stitch markers to my blog. I didn't have Hello installed on my computer, so I promptly went to the site to download it. In doing so I was notified that I already exist in their files and to just download. I did....and now it won't open. And there is no phone number to call, nor live on-line tech support to help me. So....I am FRUSTRATED!!! I hate when the computer gives me a hard time. It doesn't help that two days ago I tried to download my job's e-mail system on this computer, only to get error messages on that as well. And here I thought that with a new computer I would not have any problems, at least, not for awhile!

I am almost finished with Randy's scarf, have one more armhole to rib on mom's shell, and then can start on the sockapalooza socks. And if I can get Hello! up and running, I will be able to post the pix of the finished projects here. Now I am off to take a nap before going to a BBQ tonight. I am SOOOOO tired...don't want to get cranky too (which I almost NEVER do).

    Glad you liked the stitch markers. :) I have been frustrated with Hello, and started a photobucket account a few days ago. No software to download, and it gives you the html so you can paste it into your message rather than having to post one picture at a time from Hello and then editing to add text etc...

    Hi Jody, I just wanted to say thanks so much for that sweet little email you sent me when I first joined RAOK. I wish that I would have known you had a blog, I would have been reading from the beginning..but don't you fret now... I will read it from now on!! ;) I really loved the time I got to knit and chat with you when you were here in Phoenix. Come and visit Alison soon so we can knit again... :) (Don't know you that she is just going to love everyone telling her mom to come out and visit her all the time!!!)
