There has been some bad juju around here lately. I've learned that when one thing goes wrong to hang on because there is usually more coming.
I made pants for our Designer group challenge. I must have had my head up my keester when I made them because when I put them on to wear to the meeting, I found they were way too big. Now, I did not lose weight, which can only mean I obviously wasn't paying attention when I fitted them.
My credit card was hijacked. I got a notice from the bank that the card was used suspiciously and they blocked it. I'm in Michigan, and someone in Delaware was having a good old time with my card. Thank goodness for fraud protection. A few years ago, after losing my wallet, I signed up for loss, theft, fraud protection at my bank. So, that is being taken care of, but it still aggravates me.
Someone managed to get into my blog and send me some lovely porn. I wasn't the only one to receive such beautiful gifts, either. Another blogger posted about getting the same thing. I changed my password and that should take care of it until another idiot hacks my blog again.
My computer's hard drive bit the dust. My daughter is a computer tech and she told me she could install a new hard drive but I would probably be having issues with that computer in another year or so.
I just ordered a new RED Dell laptop. Rest in peace, Toshiba.
Meanwhile, I'm using my Netbook, which I'm so glad to have right now. But, I don't have it loaded up with things like camera software, or my phone software so I can't post photos unless I take the time to install those things. I don't normally use this little Netbook at home, so I probably won't bother. I do like it to take with me when I'm going somewhere because it's so small and portable. I don't really need an IPad since I have this. It goes with me to sewing meetings, because we're usually looking up patterns and fabrics, and I take it with me to babysit, or to Drs offices when I know there will be a wait.
So that's where things stand. I've been purging closets in anticipation of a move one of these days. Our big walk-in is finished. It's difficult trying to sort out what to keep and what to give up. Especially since I don't know where we're ending up. I keep telling myself it's better to do this now instead of 10 years from now. Get it over with while we're both healthy enough to do something. Hey, you will all be there one day--quicker than you think!
I did sign up for 3 Crafty classes while they were having a sale. Craftsy junkie, I am. I hadn't even watched S.Betzina's pant fitting class yet, but I bought PerfectFit, Plus-SizeSewing, and AlabamaChanin. Lots of information when I'm ready for it.
Hopefully my new computer will get here quickly and even better if I have some photos of something, like sewing!
