Template #152

How are you all doing today? Hope you are all some place warm!
Where oh where do I begin on all that has happened here in the last couple of days?
Saturday the boy had a basket ball game but 2 hours before the game they changed the time and location. That night since I couldn't sleep I ended up staying up all night and reading a book from cover to cover.
Yesterday afternoon they put us under a blizzard warning that was in effect until 6pm tonight. So since I figured I'd be staying home I "attempted" to install and format my new hard drive. Everything was fine except the sound driver would not work, even after I rolled back to service pack 2 and tried again. But then not only was the sound not working I kept getting Internet explorer errors saying explorer needed to close. But explorer wasn't even running! After fighting it for a couple of hours I had had enough and unplugged the new hard drive and went back to the old for the evening.
This morning I decided to try again and it formatted and installed windows with out a single hitch in it's gitty up! Now the only updating left to do for the computer is a new video card (the fan on it is failing). If I can get my hands on a new one in the next month or so I will have completely rebuilt my computer in the past 6 months.
Next step is to get all the Mac stuff up and going. I've never run a Mac before but from what I understand it is supposed to be pretty good with graphics and such. So that will be my new project in the next couple of months, along with learning Linux.
The weather here is COLD Brrrr! The neighbors water pipes froze up and finally burst today so I was called upon to help turn the water off to the house. It amazes me at how many home owners don't know how to turn there water or gas supplies off to there homes!
The wind has finally died down here but round two is supposed to hit tomorrow!

Ok, ok enough yip yap you say? I agree, how about a freebie for you all? This is the layout I created using tonight's template #152 and my soon to be released Snow Days Kit.
This photo was semi staged. My boyfriend told me he was going to slide in and stop, so I was ready at the bottom of the run with the camera. As it turns out it is the only decent picture I got of him that day. He hates pictures! I have maybe a dozen pictures of him over the last 6 years!

My Snow Days Kit is set to be released this Sunday the 18th!

You will not regret working with a Mac. Mac's are great and pretty well trouble free!

We are freezing here, it is currently -34 C when I woke up this morning!

Thank you for the template!! I hope you stay warm, I'll send warm thoughts your way and try to send the 50-60's were suposed to have today!
Congrats on getting your computer up and running. I have a stack of books from the library that I'm wanting to read but with the kids being sick(although I'm hoping they're finally over everything) I haven't had the chance.
Have a good day!
