Blech, I stayed home from work today; another Migraine hit. When I was dealing with my horrible migraines 2-1/2 years ago I remember hearing the term "Cluster" where you may get a bunch of them in a row but it really isn't one long migraine. I have a feeling I'm in a pattern like that again. No Thanks...let's stop this before it really gets started. I've learned to deal with migraines here and there...but days in a row are horrible. I slept until 11:30 and then got yelled at for not calling Mike to let him know that I stayed home. I'm honestly surprised that I remembered to call my boss. I was in bad shape.
When Mike got home from work he moved the computer out into the living room in preparation for the guy from Circuit City's Fire Dog to come and set up our wireless Internet. He was here over an hour and a half. Yeah, I admit defeat, I would never have been able to get it done. Our keyboard and mouse were shot so Mike ran out to Target to get new wireless ones. They're really nice. I'm soooo glad the Internet is now up and running.
While the guy was here I got the fabric for AK's quilt cut. I doubt I'll start it tonight because my sewing room is all messed up. One of these days we'll be able to get the old computer desk out of my sewing room, then we can move the frame to the opposite wall and I can finish putting my room together the way I want. But, in the mean time I'm hoping to get AK's quilt done this week.
The guy from Fire Dog also told us about an online Radio service called Pandora. It's free and you can type in an artist that you like and then it will play the songs from that artist while inter-mingling other songs that it thinks you may like based on some of the music that you've chosen. I really like it so far. I haven't heard a song that I didn't like yet. For example, if I type in Norah Jones, it will play other artists that sound like her.
I finished burning all of our Napster purchases to cd-roms, and only have one left to rip onto my laptop. I also used our external hard drive to copy all the music from our desktop computer onto my laptop so that I can go further with setting up my iPod.
I was watching a Fons & Porter episode and learned something new that I wanted to share. If you're doing applique where you sew your piece to interfacing, cut around the piece, and turn it to iron it down before appliqueing it, instead of using a straight scissors to cut around it, use a pinking shears so that all your slits are already made on the curves so it will turn more smoothly.
That's my night. Now I'm taking it easy in hopes that I don't have another migraine tomorrow.
