Ok, maybe I'm joking.
Nope, I didn't go to the yarn store, but the check engine light came on again, so I'll be near there again tomorrow. Yay. Let's see if I can resist temptation yet again when I shell out more dough for a fix that won't work.
Much like what's going on with the computer. XP is working much better. Vista bites. But, it DID have a sound driver with it. I've worked and worked on getting an XP compatible sound driver (it makes the speakers 'go'), with nearly zero results. Every file I try to download or install gives me corrupt errors. The virus protection was turned off, I'd try saving to disk, then running from the website. Sometimes the saving worked, sometimes the running, but never both. I'm a few dollars and a couple of nerves away from getting an over the counter sound card, cracking the case, and slapping in the card.
With my nose to the keyboard, the house has been at a decline on the clean factor. Dishes have been done, some laundry, bathrooms cleaned. It's not all bad, hm? Hubs could have cleaned in here, but he was busy mowing and walking the dog. He's just glad it's not him fooling around with the computer. HE thinks *I* have patience. Ha! I'm stubborn, that's all. Maybe a little OCD on broken things I'm supposed to be able to fix, too.
Bedtime. There's a pickup to fix, a soundcard to buy, and yarn to drool on tomorrow.
