Or what have I not been up to?
Well – this last weekend was DH birthday weekend. Thursday after work I went present shopping. I already had in mind the few items hubby had asked for – an Indiglo Timex watch. Wal-Mart will match any other store in Alaska, but not their own website. Their manager explained this is due to shipping costs. But Best Buy will match their website prices – now if we could only get Wal-Mart to step up. So after perusing Wal-Mart and snagging some spare flip flops, a card, cinnamon muffins, tissue paper and a large decorative bag – I was done there.
They didn’t have the cast iron reversible grill / griddle I was looking for – so I headed over to Sportsman’s Warehouse. I snuck in the out door five minutes after they had closed and were trying to get their last minute shoppers wrapped up. I knew exactly what I wanted, headed straight to the cast iron, grabbed my reversible grill / griddle and checked out. I headed home and bagged everything up.
When I got home, I made up the muffins and started to help hubby on his computer – little did I know, behind my back – he ate up all the muffins before I even had the chance to glaze them. They didn’t even last until his birthday Friday.
So Friday, breakfast – cheese pizza – hubby’s favorite food. Open presents. Remind dear hubby one present is in the mail and will arrive in a few days. Computer power supply arrives in the mail. I swapped the power supply that vents out the back with the supply that was venting into the tower. We used the spare supply in DH’s old computer. I reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP, reinstalled all the drivers, and now we have a spare PC. DH enjoyed his pizza and video games and presents. Saturday DH was coming down with a cold that he so kindly shared with me – we were down sick through Monday – but it still was a cuddly weekend.
I had time to play around with Linux – I downloaded Knoppix on a boot CD and was able to use it to determine hubby’s hard drive in the old machine was viable, only the Windows was messed up. I downloaded Ubuntu for my laptop and partitioned my drive – I now have 2 operating systems to choose from – I just got carried away in the idea of free software. The whole concept of a free operating system and free software is a kind of cool thought. What a busy weekend.
