And by nothing, I really mean I laid on the couch and watched season 3 episodes of Big Love from Netflix. My computer just hurt my eyes too much to look at it. Finally by 8pm, I was feeling more like myself and could handle looking at a computer screen. And I was starving, so I made J go to our favorite drive in to get Sundaes.
I know. Sundaes are just what you need after several hours of throwing up. Don't judge me and my healthy choices.
Anyhow...I mentioned a few weeks ago that J got me Photoshop Elements 8 for Christmas. I'm really enjoying the challenge of learning how to use this program. It's fairly easy, but I'm still using lots of free online tutorials, and doing lots of googling when I've got questions. Here's one photo before and after (photo is from our honeymoon when we visited the Portland Rose Garden):
I could have done something similar to this using the free online photo editor Picnik (which is wonderful, by the way), but I'm really trying to become proficient with PSE. Rounding corners was my big accomplishment of the day! I've also done a few digital scrapbook pages using PSE. I'll share a page or two when I start to feel like they look nice. Right now, they all look a little messy to me. If you know of any good tutorials (other than Jessica Sprague, I've already done hers), feel free to leave me a link!
So that was my sick day. I'm back to feeling like myself, a little dehydrated, but much better. Today we're planning on visiting the Apple store to get J a new computer! He's a software engineer and professional computer nerd (at one point, we had NINE computers in our apartment), but his "newest" computer is from 2003. In addition to being a nerd, he's pretty frugal, which I love about him. I think it's time that he earned a new one!
