to see if it all works

I had a post the other day that I had carefully written out, but I didn't email it because it sounded like a pathetic country song. Instead of losing the house, the husband and my job, in the last week I have managed to find a crack in the windshield of our '06 car, the dog we are watching for family had a seizure and an expensive vet visit, and then my computer died. That was Monday through Wednesday of my Spring Break. Exciting, huh?

So now onto exciting news. Yesterday we went rock climbing....it was the first time in two years and reminded me of how much I really miss it. It was rewarding and challenging and fun and painful all at the same time. And now my forearms are on fire from typing a paragraph and a half and it feels so good! :)

Also, I am still working on picking out the new computer. Luckily for us, we get a free printer out of the deal. Which is great and amazing considering that our current printer (which was free because it sat in a closet so long) jams regularly and takes 1 hour to print out 20+ pages. Yes, that says 1 HOUR, not one minute. The spec sheets says it should print out 20 pages in 2 minutes....HAHAHAHA. It's a bit of an understatement don't you think? So we are excited at the prospect of a new printer, especially one that is a copier/scanner as well since we have never had either capability beofre.

In knitting news, I managed a pair of socks in my first 8 weeks of RN school. I finished them right before spring break. I will post photos later. Also I have gotten 3/4 the way through another pair in the last week. Yay! I have more knitting I am hoping to do, including a baby sweater but we will see how quick it all goes with school staring again next week. When I get the new computer I promise I will post photos. I don't want to download them to Steve's computer, although I am sure he wouldn't mind.

Hope all is well with you all. Love the new design, the colors are favorites of mine as well.
