Eternal battle vs. procrastination


I've finally started work on Yoki. Today I put in the SATA card and 1TB SATA harddrive, and noticed I lack a power connector of the appropriate type.

So I ordered one from my favorite online computer parts store. 35 kroner (~5 USD), no big deal. Shipping cost? 105 kroner?! Thankfully I noticed I could actually change shipping type to uninsured letter for an item this small, which brought the cost down to 39 kroner. Still paying more for shipping than merchandise, but oh well. I really don't need insurance and a tracking number for something this small.

I've also picked up that old shawl I started on over a year ago and made some progress there. I'll probably finish knitting it before I leave on my vacation. I'll still need to get better at crocheting before I can finish it, but for now I just want it off those needles so I can use them for another project I'm working on that has outgrown its DPNs.

Called the pharmacy to have more of my anti-depressants sent over, as otherwise I'd run out while I'm in the US.

Still need to call my local NAV office and ask why my newly granted disability pension (yay!) was so ridiculously small for June. I got like half a day's worth of money instead of a month. Did someone somewhere make a comma error? At least I got my lovely tax return in June (~ half a month's pay), so my account is only barely in the red now.

Maybe I'll travel more now that I get a 50% discount on most forms of public transportation. :) I think a trip to Førde to stock up on cat food is in order before my vacation.
Oh, and my mom is coming here next week. It'll be awesome. And she has a new car with air conditioning! Can't wait! ^_^
