I didn't want to post this video until Leah had seen the surprises. Dagan and Leah came over last night and Leah was as excited over the metal "chops" as I was. :):) In fact, we were talking about meeting next Tuesday for a Craft Night--which we haven't done all winter--and Dagan said he'd might even come because he has miniatures he could paint. Whoohoo! Nice!
Anyways, here was the package opening.
I can see why people like to make these kind of videos. I know I like to watch other people's, but they're kind of fun to make, too. ;)
Leah and I decided to wait to cut my hair. We were just busy with other things and I wasn't feeling tip top. Dagan worked at hooking up the new printer and getting the McLap and printer to talk to each other. Here's the new black printer sitting in old G55's spot.
Thank you, Blaine and Kathy!!!
You can see G55 is now delegated to sitting on top of the new printer's empty box until I can get her written up on freecycle. *sniff-sniff*
When Caroline came in the afternoon she had exciting news! She and her boyfriend have been together now for five years and it was recently their anniversary. He surprised her--with an engagement ring!! So happy for her! For them. :):)
Since I have been on Dagan and Leah's Sprint family plan for so long I have qualified for a free fancy-schmancy phone--like a year ago, Leah said. But I didn't want to try to learn another new gadget and I love my old flip phone (you know how attached I can get to things). Well, last night Leah was showing me the fancy new phone that Dagan and Leah both got a while ago. My free one wouldn't be as elaborate as theirs, but it would be able to go on the internet and such. Finger tapping and flipping screens...can even play solitaire and check email...OMG! I am going to get one. I almost said probably (just nerves), but we are planning on going to look on May 3rd.
May 3rd is our usual Tuesday to meet (every two weeks) for Sacred Circle (but we often end up doing other things that come up--like hook up printers--LOL!). Well, because I was printing off all these vegetarian recipes during G55's last hurrah, I was making up a list of odd ingredients that I want to look for at Tochi's. So--Leah and I plan to go to Tochi's on the 3rd (I'll have money then) and hopefully also make it finally over to Lowe's to buy the wood, etc, for the shelves we've been planning to add to the bookcases since I got the new one...when?...last fall? We eventually do get around to things--honest! ROFL! So, now we added the Sprint store to the list, too. I just hope it is a good day for me so I can make it to all those places. :):)
I've been on a shift where I am going to bed between 3-5am. I am still doing my usual routine of listening to audios, reading, and journaling when I get up. But I really do need to get to some crafting. I am almost out of cards, bookcards, and even recycled cards--and you know how I handwrite letters and notes all the time. Can't have that! Just putting a letter in an envelope without a card of some kind seems like a naked letter to me any more--hehe! And then my messy files and desk are still waiting for me...
So I'd better go get something additional done today. ;)
Hope everybody is having a good week.
