Finally Connected/Giveaway

So, if you are reading this it means I finally got my internet connected. First I didn't know if I had a wireless card and then I had to buy a router and an adapter. It cost about $100 bucks altogether. I really didn't suffer to bad because I have a Black Berry and can do almost everything I can do on a computer. I was hoping to get more knitting done but it turns out, that didn't really happen either.

I have however worked my butt off for the past month and didn't get my Saturday's off. I so need a vacation, which is coming up next week. I am taking a short trip to New York. Chelette is also taking a trip to Texas.

Hope everyone is having a good summer. It's has been blazing hot here on the east coast. We haven't had rain in weeks. It does feel like summer is almost over though. Most of the kids go back to school next week.
I am settling in my new place and enjoying my short commute to work. I have been going up to DC for knit night, which is the highlight of my week. A Tangled Skein is have a big sale and I will be checking it out tomorrow.

I am sad that Nurse Jackie and True Blood are coming to an end. I guess I can catch some of the other shows that I missed On Demand. I want to see Hung, Weeds, Californication and Entourage. I so, enjoyed Dexter and can't wait for Season 3. Hawthorne was pretty good too. I am hoping The Ladies Number One Detective Agency come back too. Of course I can count on the Medium and Ghost Whisperer, will always be on. And I never miss Dog Whisperer, Cesar is the MAN!

In knitting news. I am so close to finishing my toe up magic loop
socks it's not funny. Hopefully next week. Chelette has finished
another pair♥ Both are on our ravelry page

It seems I've been missing out on this blog! Please forgive me. I thought I'd been keeping up with the blogs of all my podcast listeners/blog readers, but I was wrong.

I'm glad you are back connect to your computer and us. The Blackberry is fine, but it isn't the best (or easiest) way to communication.

I'm glad you up and running. Doesn't it feel strange when you are not connected to the Internet. I felt that way when I went on vacation in May. Stay in touch!!
