The Thrill of Victory!!!

I have been having major problems with my laptop for a long time...but just didn't want to deal with it. Recently I tried to install Turbo Tax (I've been using it for years) and it wouldn't install. Support couldn't help, it was so frustrating. So I borrowed The Geeks portable hard drive, copied everything I wanted to keep and reformatted my drive - scary times - but it worked!!! Whoo Hoo - everything works better, faster. Turbo Tax loaded just fine - of course now I've got to do my taxes. But this was a victory for sure!

But wait...there's more.... Adamas Shawl - I'm on the 9th repeat!! Only 6 more to go and then the edging repeat. This is my real thrill of victory!!

I've got a baby pattern to figure out next. I think I'm going to design my own. I've got tons of washable sock yarn and want to do some color work and I've got the new book...so my creative (we'll see) juices are active.

I've really enjoyed watching the Olympics - but tonight hated to see Lindsey Vonn fall, poor thing. Go Team USA!
