Today sucks.
First my cramps start in the wee hours of the morning so I didn't sleep great. Now I'm functioning in a drugged haze which is never great.

I finally get moving and decide to get something done so I head up to my sewing room. I turn on my laptop happy to watch some tv shows while I sew.
But NOOOO...

I had the icon of death.
The file folder with the question mark in the middle. DEAD HARD DRIVE.

And in this drugged haze what upsets me more then the dead laptop. The fact that I can't watch the $4.00 worth of 30 rock episodes I downloaded last night. HOW UNFAIR. Itunes I hate you. I then proceed to spend 30 minutes on the phone with apple - not to fix my computer - but to find out how I can get my $4 back OR download the tv shows again. I still don't have the solution to this.

I get over that and now I decide to go pay our utility bill. YAY FUN. but Oh the mail is here. and OH a letter for me from my car dealership. OH YIPPEE! A safety recall on my car!!!! YIPPEE!! Oh yah and did I mention it is trying to snow? YIPPEE YIPPEE YAY!


I took my computer in. All is lost but I can get a new harddrive for $200. Safety recall I'll deal with tomorrow.

I'm going back to bed before something else goes wrong today.

Not much to report. Unemployed - hopefully not for too long...
Working on the wedding dress. Wish I could post pictures but that would ruin the secret. I sort of had the skirt part on today and decided I need to take the whole thing apart. BLAH. Not fun. It takes me 3 hours to sew one layer together. There is 7 layers. It is simple but because it is simple I can tell when it is WRONG.
I did lose 10lbs just before Valentines day so I decided to reward myself by taking it easy for a few days and eating valentine treats. I would be right back on track BUT I hurt myself doing my wii bootcamp exercises yesterday. Something went POP when I was doing my reverse crunches but it was the last exercise yesterday so I didn't really notice it. Today it hurt quite a bit and now hurts when I walk up the stairs. BLAH. How can I keep working out? It is the leg that wears the monitor for the wii - not sure if it will work if I switch legs so I can take it easy on that leg....
It's the same injury I got doing real boot camp a few years ago. My leg just kind of pops out of my hip joint and pulls the muscles... Nice...
Oh well.
I'm feeling kind of down these days for no good reason. All I figure is it is the weather (it was freaking cold today) and I'm always worried inbetween jobs about when the next job will come....
I should go to my sewing room... or maybe to bed.
