Prize winnings in the mail yesterday!
Got my goodies from Beth at Lasting Impressions from the Heart from her contest to guess the identify of a bug. Beth makes some of the prettiest things. I envy her talent at stamping. To start off with was the lovely card with matching stamped envelope and then there is a floral bookmark, In Life's Garden tag, Art Deco Lady pebble, and the beautiful bird pendant with jade and gold beads. She also gifted me with a bag of different color bamboo tiles, so I can try my hand a making a pendant, too. Love the colors of all it it! Wasn't I the lucky one! It was a bright spot in my day yesterday.
Had some kind of stomach bug or something, so I didn't get anything done yesterday that I planned to do before I went back to work last night. I almost called in sick to work cause I wasn't sure I would be able to make it a 12 hour shift, but went ahead and hoped that it wouldn't be a really busy night. Thankfully it wasn't bad at all. Enough to do to make the night pass, but not so bad that I couldn't keep up with it.
Still working on the laptop/wireless card miscommunication issue. Someone called me yesterday from AT&T to help me with it, but I was sick at the time and couldn't answer. Maybe I'll have a little time when I get up from sleeping today to talk to someone. Any one had any experience with Vista on a Dell laptop and a Sierra Wireless card? Worked just like it was supposed to with my older desktop on which I had dialup. I was getting the wireless device to be able to use it with my laptop, wherever I was, but so far no go. Very frustrating!
