Re-ripping

Well, I'm re-ripping almost half of my CDs. I have a 8G thumbdrive that doesn't work on the old computer but I have more than 5G of music, which I was ripping to another thumbdrive on the old computer, so last night I thought I was moving the later items from the 5G to the 8G via the new computer. Somehow I managed to overwrite the first batch. My fingers shake a lot and I probably moved something to the wrong place. I don't want to install the trackball yet because I haven't put on the OS I want yet. I'll have to move these earlier in the day when I'm more stable. And to add to the annoyance, I have the actual CDs filed by first letter of band/last name of artist and the thumbdrives have them filed by first letter of artist/band name.

I got all the ends worked into the new cat blankie on Wednesday, but only a quarter of the way through the edging last night. I have to hold a glob of crochet fabric in my hand and it cramped at that point, so I've got a few more days to go.

I had a massive ant trail coming in from the porch today and had to use the spray. I don't like doing that because of the cats (although they've stayed away), so I'm watching them. I'll have to go wipe them up and wash carefully soon.
