An Update

It is snowing again. We’ve gotten 2 feet (approximately) in the past week. I am typing on my new Samsung laptop; my Toshiba’s motherboard crapped out during a diagnostic I had one of my fellow Agents run it through. Alas. 4 years with that computer; I bought it when I lived in Seattle, when I had first started working finally and had my studio apartment (that was more expensive than the house we’re renting here). I needed a way to apply for better jobs, despite not having internet in the place. I couldn’t afford it.

I’ve been afraid of using this computer because it’s really nice. It was my Christmas present from Eric, and it is the kind of computer for gaming or Auto CAD for engineering students.

About that. I am still waiting for a letter. I am getting angry and frustrated because this has become an unnecessarily long process. Delta State got the transcripts up here finally – almost two weeks ago – and I called today, but they just told me that I would get something in the mail. I applied in December. I realize that another week or so should seem minor, but it’s just grating on me.

During my offline time (great time, given the computer crash), I read the first three books in the Malazan series and started the fourth, did some great cooking, and learned how to drive on snowy Michigan roads. My crafting has taken a back seat, but I think that comes with the winter territory. I made red velvet cupcakes last night with homemade cream cheese icing…I’ve amazed myself. I always said that I hated baking; I don’t, as it turns out.

We’ve been looking at some houses, and we’re going out again on Saturday. I’m anxious to get out there and find something.

I’ve been working a great deal. I have today off. I have been researching other school possibilities, since I am mad at GVSU. I haven’t picked up my book yet, but I should.

I’ve seen some great crafts on display in the blogs I follow. I love it. I am off to read or write or bake (I need to make a real batch of cupcakes for my coworker’s birthday tomorrow). Keep it crafty!
