Driving home from work a week ago my window made a weird noise and would not roll up, it just kept dropping back down. When I got home I pulled out the manual, got the tools and started taking my door apart. Fortunately a mechanic happened to pull up next to me and helped me rig the window up. After much pondering we decided to try and fix it ourselves, the quote to fix it being about $250. So I ordered the part and this Sunday Mike took the door the rest of the way apart and slapped the new window regulator in. So now I have a working window once more! This is what it looked like for that week

In other car news here is what happened to my car yesterday...

Yes that's 200,000 miles. My car is ten years old and I have had it for the last nine. The new goal is to get another 50,000

Cell Phone Holder

I purchased a cell phone holder from my cousins daughter who was selling all sorts of stuff for a school fundraiser. It looked like this (well this is the box)

...just a little on the ugly side to me. So I decided to give it a little makeover. This is the result

The picture is a little blurry but I was quite happy with the result!

Cross Stich Purse

So here is something that took me a long time to complete, I started it before I moved then finished it a few weeks ago. I would like to say I made the whole thing but its just the cross stitched flower that I made. I think it actually came out pretty good.

More Books!

Amazingly I have been getting some reading done recently, I know I am shocked too! First off is Larklight by Philip Reeve. Victorian space adventure...need I say more. It was a great book and I hear there is a sequel coming which should be fun. Next is Shrimp by Rachel Cohn, the sequel to Gingerbread, I enjoyed this book as much as the first. Lastly is Pants on Fire by Meg Cabot, again I seem to like all of her books and again this was a good one.

As for me I am learning more and more on my new job. Also preparing for my first ALA Conference in my old home Washington DC. I cant wait to get back and have a look around, not to mention I am finally going to the BIG conference. I will be sure to post all about it.
