I'm back

I spend much of the day reformatting my hard drive, then adding the software and letting the software update. Yes, when you have the 2003 version of Windows XP, you get to re-install 2 service packs and approximately 85 other updates. (I wish I had kept a better count.) Not everything is back on yet, but at least I have Internet access for the important stuff.

I thought I was missing working, but yesterday I filled in for someone, and it was perfectly clear that while I miss some people, I am very glad to be out of retail for awhile. Yes, I think I want to become a hermit for a short while and finish decompressing. Some of our fellow humans could stand some decompressing too, or maybe a whole lotta valium.

Anyway, I've spent most of the day in front of this screen, starting around 9:30 this morning, and it's 5:30 now. I did step away to eat, but I also got a lot of knitting done, including finishing the second sock of my "car socks". (Those are the ones I knit on while sitting at super long traffic lights.)

Yay! Glad you're back up! My Eee burped and went south the other day, and I had to do the same thing, though probably less of it, since I don't have a lot of stuff on my little Eee.
