Satisfaction---I hope

Well, I just got off the phone with the manager I talked to last week and he said that he was just going to replace the computer!!!! Since we have made so many trips just for it. I wonder if talking to the other manager had anything to do with it or not! Who cares----Happy Dance!


We purchased this laptop on 7-3-11 at Best Buys and by the end of August, middle of September it was doing this when you turn it on or in the middle of something it will go to it. Have had it in 4 times now and they can't find anything wrong with it. 2 times within the 2 1/2 weeks. Brought it home last Tues. night and it went to this the first time I had it on and it went back up on Sat. and they restored it and took off my data and pictures and the first time last night I put it on was this again. Tonight I have talked to 2 managers and sent them 5 or 6 pictures of this. A manager told me to come on Sat. when he worked 2-9 and he would look at it but they paged him 3 or 4 times and he never came up while I was there. Sorry just had to vent!

These sheep have yet to lamb. The brown one looking at me is a baby Jaymee raised. It was so small and almost gone and Allen told her she could have it if she took care of it. It is a people lover. The twins I believe were born 1-23 and are boys. Brown one is 8.3 lbs and the white 7.4. It is quite normal for sheep to have twins. Think 14 more to lamb. yesterday was the first day these were out in big pasture and they just frolicked around. So cute watching them jump.

My helper

Pickles was helping me to do some patching.

My collection of

Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. Have moved my cabinet and it is in my daughters bedroom since she is married now. (other walls are sponged 1 yellow, 1 blue and 1 purple. Closet is sponged orange. Shelves are sponged pink along with wastecan. Also the fanblades and heat vent are sponged. Daisies on the ceiling)

My daughters baking

Since her and I both had the day off, she came over for the day and brought cupcakes she had made. They look so good but haven't had any. My husband and her brother ate some. Took my great aunt and mom some too. Her husband came over after work and they ate with us.

A present

from my boss for Christmas. The book has little stories and recipes in it. Also got teabags from a local place in town. (from Republic of Tea)

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

I made these this afternoon. Got recipe off of pinterest. Love pinterest! I cut one in half to see the inside. I might just have to eat one half of a half to try them. I could eat the whole plate (I like sweets) but trying that weight loss thingy so.....

January sewing

One of the forums I go to is having a thread about the sewing you do monthly to get ready for Christmas 2012. For people to get a start on it. So far I have did a scarf, and patched for nephew and brother-in-laws king size quilt I resewed the binding down all around.

Fleece Infinity Scarf

Over on the HGTV Forums this was the project for the Friday night PJ Party. I didn't get to sew with them that night but made mine tonight. It was really easy and I am sure I will be doing some for gifts for Christmas.
