The Day After

Yesterday's post sucked. We were literally in the middle of a battle when I minimized our game to post on the blog so that I could get it in before midnight. We lost the battle and the post wasn't worth the effort to read, lol. So anyway...

We had a great Christmas. The kids got a ton of stuff and were happy as clams all day. I got FOUR books off of my various reading lists and some other stuff as well. I was a happy clam too although it's really hard to hold myself back from reading my new books since I have to wait until the 1st to start them. :( Patience isn't a virtue of mine at all. Although, the hubby did get me The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes to tide me over. It's great. I've been a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes since high school and I'm willing to bet that my friends from high school who read my blog will know why. ;)

For those of you who are waiting for the better than sex cake recipe, the powers that be that hold the recipe didn't answer their phone or return my call yesterday so I still don't have it. I'm not sure what my next step on this quest is going to be so you'll have to sit tight.

On a slightly less than positive note, my computer has decided to be a big, crapping piece of crap. It's barely a year old but since it is over a year old, it's no longer under a warranty. Of course. This means that I'm going to have to reformat my computer and hope that fixes my various problems. If you've reformated a hard drive before, you know what a chore this is going to be. I'm going to have to back up all my files, search out program disc's that I'll need to reinstall, and then keep my fingers crossed that it was worth the trouble. The timing couldn't be better since I'm on my winter break from classes but that doesn't make this task any more fun. :)

And now I'm off to help the hubby clean out the car. Fun times, right?


  1. Ahh, the infamous Better than sex cake, I made that for them on Christmas, or some get together. I can get the recipe for you if you want me to try and call them too. I think I know most of the ingredients... Let me know.

  2. It always seems that the computer problems come when the warranty ends. And I do know all about the troubles of reformatting. Good luck with that!

    It sounds like you had a good Christmas. :-) I got two books I'd wanted and plenty of gift cards so I can get those I didn't.

  3. Mel~My call was finally returned and I now have the recipe. Thanks for the offer though. I appreciate it.

    LF~~I finally got the reformatting done. I've done it countless times before, but this was the worst. I had the weirdest problems crop up.

    I love gift cards. We got a couple this year too and I can't wait to go out and spend them. Books and gift cards. Can't get any better than that.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
