3.  Move bookcase from Garage to office
4.  Install humidifier so it drains into sump pump drain
5.  Break down boxes in garage so I can park the car in there again
6.  take book case from my room to the basement
7.  Install new handle on fence gate
8.  Install shelves on the Living Room wall

So K, had a sleep over with her hyper friend D. The plan was to keep them up late and they'd sleep in...

Ya huh! Not so much!

6am I have to little girls snuggling into me, one on each side whispering "paaaannnnncaaaaakkkkeeeesssss".

I manage a half hour more or so of them nudging me every time I started to snore, before I banished them to Saturday morning cartoons!

By 8am we have pancakes, with fresh strawberries and raspberries on top, and I make MEAN pancakes if I do say so, myself!

Not sure what the day will bring, depends on if it clears! If it does, we are likely headed to KIDSFEST in Guelph, and to Bulldog Interactive Fitness where I'd like to send K for a week of summer camp.

If it doesn' will become, find the kitchen, laundry, sweep and mop day...hopefully with a movie and a NAP thrown in for good measure.

Have a good day all!

Tech Woes

Spent about 4 hrs with remote assistance last night soting stuff out.

Things got stabilized.  Predominant issue seems to be between Window's Media Center and VISTA.  I couldn't leave well enough alone.


Media Center is an operating system onto itself that appears to sit on the Vista platform (as least that's how my brain is getting it).  I thought I could go into the OS itself, i.e. media center and make changes to the settings in there, I might be able reload the O/S and resolve the problems.

Ya...not so much.

My big ass computer with the big ass lovely monitor is onw at 94% of a Factory Image Recovery.
Files are backed up, but ALL my other software will have to be re-installed.  AND I have to again (sorry Kev) go back through the system and eliminate the programs (from the factory) that I neither want, nor need.

Meanwhile - on the happier side of things... I may have a coffee date this afternoon. blown away by tech to do list before I can go out?
1.  Move packed up tree & decorations to the basement
2.  Mop main level
3. Finish dishes
4 Shovel out!
5. Shower!!!!!

Should time/motivation/energy allow - find floors in the upper level in order to vacuum.


WELL...I have click FINISH. now...cross body parts for me!

locus_ofcontro: (Default)
2. Organize and start to wrap gifts
3. Dig myself out of the driveway (just where the plow went by, begging to neighbours with snow blowers optional.)
4. Meet up with friends for 1 at Kitchener Market
5. Come up with a dinner plan? Groceries?
6. Go SLEDDING????
7. See the night time lights at Waterloo Park with the kidlet
8. Complete whatever other tasks I can fit in... (i.e. Home Depot to get the right parts for a fix I need to do....etc...)

I'm home again and looking forward to my own bed...

About to crawl into clean, brand new 400 - thread count sheets... A soft cream colour they are... I'm excited...not as much as I would be if i were sharing them...but there ya go...

Had dinner with my dad, and opened his gift after I got home. Pleasantly surprised by his choice. The money he gave Kat will go into her RESP.

Signed up to have 20$ deducted per pay to go directly to her RESP starting the first pay of the New Year. That's one financial goal off the plate for now.

Still not sure where I stand with [ profile] shadoridr and am waiting for permission to let myself in to collect my books and such. More on that...when I have emotional energy for it, and under a filter.

K made out like a Christmas bandit.

1. Dr's appt in Toronto 10am
2. Deliver [ profile] the_nita roaster (your house or your work love!!)

4. Sort through some toys and such for "gift away"
5. Find a place for a kitchen set.
6. Decide when/if I'm headed to K-town by way of Belleville for the weekend.

***well THAT didn't work out would help if I'd gotten my appt time right this am...!!! Oh well, a coffee with an old friend in a leather shop, new PJ's and weekend pants...and a...busy afternoon......
