sometimes being sick can be a major motivator
I am home sick. One runs out of things to do really darn fast. One of the things I love to do is watch movies, but my favorite moves are all on VHS tape, and my VCR wasn't set up. So I finally got around to setting up the VCR to run through the DVD player, which is also a recorder so I can watch the Princess Bride, and record it to a DVD at the same time.
I also wanted to knit. For the first time in ages, I wanted to knit. So I pulled out socks I started in summer 2006 and then completely neglected. Maybe I'll make some progress today.
