Well, my computer upgrade was not without a few software problems. Running down fixes for them is time consuming and annoying. And the jury is still out on the IE8 upgrade; I think I had less problems with IE7. The next time I'm in the market for a new computer, I'm seriously thinking about going to a Mac.
Blogger has been acting up. It wouldn't let me move pictures within a post on Tuesday, and then it ate my post before I could post it. Yesterday, I didn't have time to post because things were going kaput on me left and right.
I usually go to the grocery store on Wednesday. I got this great deal on "this-will-expire-tomorrow-so-it's-a-deal-for-you-today" meat at Kroger. I found three-pound packages of ground turkey for $2.97 (less than a dollar a pound!). I bought all they had which was five packages. Power tightwadding!
When I got home, I dragged out my trusty FoodSaver vacuum sealer to repackage the meat so I could freeze it in portions. The FoodSaver was dead. It would not work. It would not make a bag and it would not vacuum and seal. It did, however, make a great deal of noise as if it was working, but it was not. I made an emergency call to DH and he went by Wal-Mart on the way home to buy a new FoodSaver. Poop.
After I hung up with DH, my cell phone made its "be-doop" noise to let me know it needed charging. I noticed that the screen was blank. The phone still works, but the screen does not. AUGH! I don't want a new phone. I like this one. DH found a place that will fix it; apparently, it is a loose wire. Now I just have to take it in to get it fixed.
I haven't stitched in two days, but hope to this afternoon. I am SOOOO looking forward to the I35 Stitchtogether on Saturday - I need to immerse myself in stitching and gathering with other stitching ladies.
