Happy IKEA Day!

Today was the grand opening of IKEA and it should be a holiday. Or we should have had the day off at least :-) It is a definitely a big deal to us. I was so excited when I first heard about it. Now I want to go really really bad. Hey maybe I will get to pop in there when I am in Orlando on Saturday? I don’t have any idea if we will even be close to it but what does that matter? Did you know that they have free childcare and cheap meals? Crazy…


I am going to drone on again about the Striped Sock. I was not home until late the past 2 nights so I have only knit about an inch. But as you can see I am ready for the toe. I am dying to have this thing finished!! I have already had someone stake a claim on them. My mom emailed me that if they're are too small (like the Horcrux Socks) she will take them off my hands. How sweet of her! I haven’t decided if they fit me yet. I can get them on but they are a bit snug…

In other news…I think I am going to throw my Zune against a wall. Well it’s not the Zune’s fault, it’s the makers’. Yes its all Microsoft’s fault…Ha that capitalized all on its own…do you think its because I am typing in Word? This is all a conspiracy. Anyways, today they released an update for the Zune software so I did what it told me and I downloaded it. Little did I know that it would completely screw up my entire library. All of my songs are posted now on the wrong albums. Carrie Underwood is listed on Timbalands album and so on. I logged on to Zune’s website to see if there is tech support or something and I came across the tech support forum filled with annoyed customers and a little tutorial on how to fix the problem (that they knew about yesterday but did not fix or at least remove the update!!) but I couldn’t figure it out. I even uninstalled the whole thing and reloaded it but the stupid CD looks for updates before installing. Conspiracy!! At least I did not have my actual Zune hooked up to the computer when all this went down so it is safe for now. I hope they fix this quick!! All I need is another thing to not work around here…ugh

I think a trip to IKEA is in order!! I'm sure it's going to be BEYOND packed for a while but oh well. Your sock looks great!

Heck yeah! Ikea here we come. I don't think we'll be anywhere near it, and I'm not a very good navigator, but if we can find it, I'm all for checking it out. And no matter how big the needleworks show is, I can't imagine we'll spend ALL day there, right?

The sock looks great! You're nearly there!
