argh

So the move went okay, however we were counting on someone to give us boxes and that fell through. We had abouth 7 boxes all together and had to keep bringing them over to the house, dumping them, and going back over to repack what was left. This got very tiring and frustrating.

Internet is back up, however MY harddrive CRASHED in my brand new laptop. I'm seriously considering buying a cheapy HP laptop from walmart and through my expensive Dell notebook out the window. Thankfully hubby backed everything up approx 45 minutes before the crash. So now we've got to call Dell and get another harddrive sent and argh. I'm very upset. I'm updating on the hubs computer, i suppose it's good to be married to a programmer. We've got three working computers right now and one DUD, and of course it happens to be mine.

I haven't even looked at yarn since we've moved. I haven't had time to do anything but kill random bugs (this house has sat empty for months) and set up appointments to get everything turned on and transfered. Also I *may* have gotten a new part-time job. However it seems everytime I get a "part time" job it slowly turns into a full time job and i end up living at my place of employment. We'll see how that goes.

All and all i think i'm ready for May to be over.

Nauties! and i'm moving

So I joined the Natuie along as well as SP8, i'll add a button for that soon.

The Natuie pattern from knitty is so freaking cute! I've knitted one up, though he's still waiting for eyes and another one is just missing two tenticles. I'll post pics of them soon. I'm most likely moving...very soon, so i'm going to have to put my knitting on hold while we do the packing and unpacking. Gotta love the military :-)
