December Photo Project

Ugh, I have a real tough time taking a photo per day. I've tried my hand at the 365 project and failed. A bunch of times.

I'm not sure if I'll call this attempt a failure. Sure I missed a few days, but when you work full time, have a 3 year old and it gets dark at approximately 2pm, you do what you can do. There's only so many things I can creatively (or not so) photograph in my house.

Oh, yeah, throw in the plague on the entire household and you've got yourself a tough project. Tough, but fun. I'll definitely give it a go again next year.

Another crappy Treo shot, but my big girl had her 1st dentist visit and did GREAT!!!

She quite enjoyed sucking the spit out of her mouth.

With Weather Like This...

In all honesty, there's only 1 reason for this:


and it's staying home to make this:



Batch 1 didn't make it to kick off. Batch 2 is in the works now.

Go Pats!

I've fallen woefully behind. We've got the plague at the moment. All three of us. :(

Ally's sick, I'm sick, we're all sick. And I chose today to want a new design. So here it is. Totally uninspired. Sorry

Excuses, Excuses

I've fallen woefully behind on my Photo's of the Day. I promise to check up tonight. It will be the LaLaPaloza of photos tonight.

I've been overwhelmed with Christmas Card expectations, or more precisely, my lack of a Christmas Card this yr. I normally design my own. I use Photoshop.
The photoshop that is on my laptop. That's back at HP. Being repaired. For the 2nd time in a month.

I sucked it up. I bought Elements for the mac and after some REALLY ANNOYING installation issues, I was finally able to create this years card.

Happy Holidays!

Took this with my Treo, so absolutely no quality there, but figured I'd give a glimpse into where I spend my day surfing and blogging from. Oh, and, ya, working from.

Mermaid - December Photo Day 2

Hmmm, Coincidence, I think not

Got a CRITICAL UPDATE from HP today. Looky, Looky:

HP Pavilion dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V6000 Series Notebook PCs - HP Limited Warranty Service Enhancement

HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion dv6000, HP Pavilion dv9000 and Compaq Presario V6000 series notebook PCs.
If you own an HP Pavilion dv6000, HP Pavilion dv9000 or Compaq Presario V6000 series computer that meets the product criteria listed below and experiences one or more of the symptoms listed below, contact HP to determine whether you are eligible for a free repair....

Guess who's laptop falls right smack in this "Enhancement"?

I hadn't updated our experience with HP yet. Been putting it off, gathering my thoughts.

DH after close to 2 weeks of pure, hellish misery actually got a "Case Manager" to not only call him back but actually AGREE with him that the treatment he had received thus far had been anything but stellar. He refunded our money and extended our warranty (score 1 for us, don't worry score is still like Us 1, HP =1236452537463).

Within 2 days we had a shipment box and approximately a week later we had our laptop back. All shiney and webby and doing all the things a laptop is supposed to do.

That is until this week. It decided it liked its Paperweight life so.much.more.

This time we've got nothing. Nada, not even a beep. The blue lights come on, but folks, no one is home. Its being packed right back up and shipped right on back most likely tomorrow. This repair only took 20 minutes on the phone. Of course the Rep on the phone at the end reminded DH he could have just gone to HP's support webpage to diagnose the problem. Apparently web surfing works different in India, cause here in the USA, it REQUIRES A WORKING COMPUTER.
