Really folks- this a happy dog face! Once we took it she was a little stunned by the flash, but she recovered enough to allow us to resume scratching her belly.

I have sooooo totally blown my budget on books this month. I think is actually one big enabler! Is there a 12 step program for Amazon? Can't wait for the book "One Skein" to hit my mailbox. Also ordered Sally Mellville's newest book in the Knitting Experience series (the color book).... I am chompin' at the bit to get the Wendyknits book, but I will have to practice self control until tomorrow --I have a 30% off coupon at Border's. Not to mention that I have a 50% off coupon from JoAnn's and they have some awesome knitting books! This is gonna get expensive!!!

Spendin' money and time!

I am looking forward to getting my new digital camera in the mail --- hopefully this week. I finally found a really good price on an 8 mega pixel digital --it was actually cheaper than the 7 mp that I was looking at last week in Wal-Mart. This is the first time I've ever bought anything electronic on eBay, so I am saying a prayer that it is a good experience.....As soon as it comes, I an going to start posting pictures like crazy! It is about time you get to see me and my little corner of the world. Plus the fiber projects that have taken over my life and home!

It seems it is time to enroll for the summer semester at school. I am going to try to do a math class online. I have to finish college algebra for my paralegal degree and the only thing holding me back is the public speaking and the college algebra....I will be starting at pre algebra though. I personally think algebra should also get foreign language credit! When I want to read, I look at letters. When I want to do math, I look at numbers. Can someone explain to me just what the heck I'm trying to do when looking at algebra?!!! I really believe that we will get to the end of the world and discover the person that came up with algebra was only playing a big joke that went wild. Kind of like the "emperor's New Clothes" in math form!!

The weather is really gorgeous lately. I am getting the urge to travel. I may have to go to Lawrence Kansas and run amuck in their wonderful downtown. It is a college town a couple hours away, but it is home to a great college and one of the best Indian restaurants that I have tried. Actually it has all kinds of wonderful eateries and some of the most incredible shopping! It's a toss up between Lawrence and Tulsa, Oklahoma. I guess we'll just have to see....

AOL Sucks eggs!!

I am really getting tired of sllllloooowwwwllllyyyyy connecting with aol and all the other problems associated with it. We are having problems with our computer--when I mention to the repair guy that we have AOL, he gets a eureka looks and says there's the whole problem. Apparently AOL will kill is definitely not making ours happy. We are unfortunately bound until next year, but all our other computers will be put on digital. None of my friends using other services are having the problems we are having with AOL, plus the connection is a zillion times faster than AOL and the price is actually comparable. Don't even get me started about my billing nightmare! Just take my advice---the disks that are being whored out are only good for ornaments-DO NOT INSTALL AOL IN YOUR COMPUTER!!

A Sucks eggs
