I lost patience with the computer last night (after it refused to let me online for two hours) and reformatted the hard drive. I'm sure it needed it but I think I did it a little hastily. I did fill up three CDs with data first, but I'm pretty sure I missed a few things. Plus now I have to reinstall everything. And there are people in chat, and Java? takes for-freaking-ever to download.

I took my mom on the promised shopping trip today. She had $150 in gift cards she wanted to spend - as I said earlier in the week, I guess she's feeling better because all of a sudden she HAD to spend them - and I had practically forgotten that I had one too. That's what my dad gave me for Christmas. My mom bought a watch and a marcasite ring and... some more stuff, I forget. I bought a silver bracelet and a charm and a necklace with pink beads and TWO shirts - for $60 that was pretty good, don't you think? The bracelet was marked down to $9.99 but it rang up for three dollars and something. I never understand how Foley's prices things, but I'm not complaining.

It's Mardi Gras and I didn't want to try to get back on the island too early, so I made two quilt blocks while I was waiting. I have 5 Ohio Stars now (out of 12, so that is pretty good progress). Although I suppose I could have gone home earlier since the traffic wasn't bad at all, actually. That's not good news for the City of Galveston's budget, but it was nice not to have it take two hours to get home like it did last year.
