What a weekend. Ever driven three teenage boys and one girl over to the indoor skatepark? Boys are boys and one girl surrounded by three of them made for great entertainment. By the end of the day, my head was splitting, I was broke, and hated malls even more than I usually do, but all those kids had the best time ever. But I had even more fun than they did.
I left the mall and headed over to the sewing machine store. I had dropped off my Viking Topaz on Friday and was lusting over the Viking Designer Ruby once again. I had asked her what she would give me for a trade-in on my Horizon and decided it was worth the the trade-in. Saturday after dropping the boys off I went over with my Horizon and came home with my new Ruby. I will never own another Janome. They are great machines, but I don't love them.
I bring it home, unpack everything and show DH who is quite impressed with the touchscreen. Because it was late, I started setting up things today.
Viking doesn't make anything easy. Their site is hard to navagate through and finding the right updates has proved difficult. Then when I updated 4D Extra my computer won't recognize the dongle (very expensive USB hard drive) I can't do further updates w/o the dongle or get into the embroidery software. I can't get my computer to recognize my Ruby and my machine wouldn't update with the USB stick. I give up for now.
But the Ruby is a dream. I sat and played with her for a couple of hours having the dealer go over the options and the menus.
Right now I want a couple of Aleve and a nice nap to overcome the temptation to throw my dongle at the wall.
