I Am Finally Back-Yippee

This has been an agonizing 2 weeks. Where we live we have limited internet service and had no option but to use PBT through the telephone company. It was DSL but we weren't really satisfied with it, plus we didn't need the phone that they said we had to have in order to have their internet.

We heard about Wild Blue and ordered it online. They sent the modem and dish a week ago, but we had to wait for someone to come and install it. He came yesterday and installed it and left. Then the computer froze up.

We did a restore and it went through all the processes and said it was successful. Was restarting and a black screen came up and said please wait.......this was about 4 o'clock yesterday and my DS had to go to work so it stayed like that all night until around 10 o'clock this morning and we messed around with it. Had to put in the windows XP disk and it went through and reinstalled Windows. I thought that everything was lost but it looks like everything is okay. He is having trouble now getting the router hooked up so his laptop works.

I have been getting more stitching done though. I knit a scarf for a friend at work. I didn't get a picture of it cause I finished it up at work and gave it to her. It was just a simple garter stitch and was green knitting worsted. She selected the yarn herself several months ago and I promised to have it done by cold weather. We had our first cold spell over the weekend so I figured I better get it done.

My partner for The Year Long Prairie Schooler Exchange has received her ornament so I think I still have a picture.

I had fun stitching the santa, and I think I am getting better at making twisted cord.

Will write more later and let you know what I have been up to. I have a lot om mail to read and a lot of blogs to visit.

I have Wildblue. I like it as it is faster than dial up but still slower than cable internet.

That last ornie looks so cute ;-).

I want to wish you a Merry Christmass and a Happy Newyear.
