Stressful Sunday!

Well, the day was going okay at first!  I got in a good walk and came home and did my workouts.  I was going to relax for a bit after those and then fix lunch, but a friend called.  She wanted me to ride with her to look for someone.  She thought her mom was out drinking.  She wasn't!  I rode with her and it was time for lunch as we were going by Starbucks.  I got her to take me through the drive thru.  I got a cascara latte and a sandwich.  I think it was called the Double Smokey bacon sandwich.  It was good, I know that much!  That was my lunch.  We rode around and never found her mom.  We go back to her house and in just a few minutes, her mom shows up!  Then, my friend, has words with her husband and her mom!  I don't drink or smoke, but I felt like I needed one then. I finally got the hell out of there and came home to my nice quiet house.  I love being single!  

So, I jumped in the tub.  My friend's mom has a Boxer puppy and he is crazy fun.  He is also crazy.  He jumped all over me and got me dirty!  I took a bath and washed my hair and then got out of the tub.  I did my French lesson and now I'm sitting under the hair bonnet dryer drying my hair.  I'm trying to decide what I want to fix for dinner, but I don't have a clue to what I want!  I might fix what I'd normally fix for lunch since I didn't get to eat at home today.  Thank goodness for me always putting some funds on my Starbucks card at the beginning of the month.  I didn't have any money otherwise.  That sandwich was pretty damn delicious.  I've had the Bacon, Egg, and Gouda before, but this was soooooo much better.  Yummy!

OH! While we were out, I got my friend to carry me by the post office.  I had two pen pal letters.  Yay!  I had actually thought of going to Starbucks today after lunch, but going out with her messed up that idea.  Maybe I'll go one night this week.  I mean, I DID go, but that was because I had to eat and well, I wanted some coffee. :p

I think my hair is probably dry already.  It takes so much less time since I got it cut.  I wish I had gotten the back cut shorter.  It's too long already! :P  I'm going to play more Pocket Camp and watch more of The New Detectives on Hulu.  I've seen most of them many times, but the last two days, I actually watched two episodes that I'd never seen!  Either that, or they were first run and I'd forgotten them.  The show was from the early two thousands, so it's possible I forgot an episode. Finding one new one was amazing, two was down right weird.  My friend told me I should have played the lottery! LOL

 


Prime failed me again!

I ordered an item on Monday with two day shipping.  It was scheduled to arrive today no later than 8pm.  Guess what didn't come today?  It is now in limbo as it's been for the past few days. ~_~; I wish that Amazon would use another service for Prime members.  I'm not going to re-new my membership, that is for sure!  I ordered my bullet journal earlier this month and did one day ship on that,  It didn't get here next day.  Then, I ordered two different items.  Neither got here on time.  This one is just the icing on the cake.  This package went from Texas to Kentucky to North Carolina!  WTF?

As for my Etsy order, it's supposed to arrive tomorrow!  I can't wait to see my little charms.  I'll do a write up on them if they arrive tomorrow.  I'm hoping that my Amazon package will get back on track and get to me tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath!

I went out today and cleaned the snow off of my car and drove it to the end of the driveway and backed it back in.  I decided that I'd better at least drive it out into the street so that if there was a snow bank at the end of the driveway, I'd flatten it.  I did just that.  I drove around the block and then came back and parked it.  Now there is a path to get out of my driveway if needed.  I noticed that off all my surrounding neighbors, I'm the only one that cleared my front walk.  I hope the mail man appreciated it!  He did deliver mail today but it was all junk mail.  

I just finished my workouts not too long ago.  I am going to play more Pocket Camp and then read more on my book.  I am not planning on being able to walk tomorrow.  My friend that takes me out sometimes came today and we went to eat.  The sidewalks that I could see on the main road were still snow covered and it was high because of the city workers scraping the streets.  I am not sure how bad it is all the way down, but for safety reasons, I'm going to wait until Saturday to try to walk. Also, the street that is above mine that I have to walk on to get the main road is still covered.  It looks like an ice skating rink! I'd have to walk very slowly and very carefully so I'm giving it another day.  I think it's supposed to get up in the forties tomorrow, so that will help.  The sun coming out today helped too! 


Snow is possible!

Yes, we may get some snow here overnight and into tomorrow.  I almost skipped my walk today but then I figured if it snowed a lot tomorrow, I'd miss that day of walking so I went.  I wanted to walk to the post office but I didn't.  I did run out later and drove to the post office.  I only had one pen pal letter.  I got that and headed to Starbucks. I figured if I was going to be stuck in the house tomorrow, I'd at least have Starbucks tonight. :p  It was good, too!  I came home and did my workouts.

I am going to get off of the computer shortly and play some Pocket Camp.  I haven't played much today.  I want to relax a bit before bed.  I also want to read more on my current book. It's good so far, but I'm not very far into it.  I'm just waiting to see if we are going to have snow.  One local college has already cancelled classes for tomorrow and nothing has happened yet!  Weird.  I guess they are being extra careful.

I like to watch it snow from my window.  If it does snow tomorrow, I'm going to sit in at my desk in front of my window and watch it snow.  I plan on having a nice big cup of coffee with me and I also hope to write all my pen pal letters.  I only have four to write including the one that came today.  Oh and I found another potential one and I'm going to write a letter to her too.


Brrrr

It was around 70 the other day, today, it was below freezing.  Phooey!  It was pretty chilly when I walked today.   It took a while before I got warmed up.  I almost gave up and turned around and came back!  I didn't though and got my walk in.  I didn't do my workouts after I got home as I usually do.  I spend some time relaxing before lunch.  I ate and then read a while on the current book on my Kindle.  I have more lined up ready to go!  This one is the Jekyll Revelation and it's really good.  I'm enjoying it.  I'm over have way done with it now.  After I finish it, I am going to read Gwendy's Button Box and then a true crime book I just got yesterday.  After that, I have several zombie books and other things on my Kindle so I'm full up on things to read.  I'm on Goodreads if you want to see what I'm reading at any time.  The link is in the sidebar.  I didn't read much in '17 and I plan to make up for that this year!

I did do my workouts this evening.  I got them done a bit ago.  My bed linen is in the dryer waiting for me to put it back on the bed.  I only have one more thing to do after that and then I'm going to relax with my Kindle and I'm also going to play more Pocket Camp.  I haven't played as much today as usual, so I want to get some playing in.  


Well then!

I was working on doing some layout changes on the blog earlier, but it was being difficult. I'm back to the old layout for the moment.  I am going to try to work on it again another day.  It was just being so annoying.  I already had a stressful day.  I didn't need any extra! 

Right now, I'm going to finish up my business on the computer and then play some Pocket Camp to de-stress!  It's so fun and I haven't gotten to play as much as usual today.  Plus, my tree house should be pretty close to being built. ^___^


Welcome 2018

So, today was like a usual day for me.  I went for a walk and then came home and did my workouts.  It was COLD on my walk, but I found my compression pants and I wore those under another layer and that helped a lot!  I wanted to walk to the post office while on my walk, but I just didn't feel like going that far today.  Luckily, a friend of mine offered to run me on two errands this evening. One was to the post office, and one was to Starbucks! :D  I had another free drink, and I got a Cascara latter, a Venti since it was free. I also got the coffee press ornament.  It's cute!  Now I have two from this year's ornament collection.  It was marked down to $3.99.  Today was an extra chance to get plays on #Starbucksforlife  I got the ornament so I'd actually have a purchase today since the free drink wouldn't count.  At least I don't think it would count.

I came home and played.  I didn't win, yet. :p  I have gotten several instant wins of bonus stars and I did win the fifty bonus stars spot.  I really want to win the grand prize.  I could go every single day if I wanted! :D :D :D  That would be amazing!  

So far, 2018 hasn't been too bad. I got Starbucks and I got to check my post office box. Yes, I had mail!  I had several pen pal letters.  Some from pen pals I haven't heard from in a while Yay!  I love getting letters.  I hope to be able to sit down tomorrow and get a bunch written.  I have a good stack since I got a few before the holidays.  I'd like to get at least half of them done and ready to mail.

Okay, I'm off to do my French lesson and then I'm going to play more Pocket Camp! :D  I'm waiting on my tree house to be built and it's taking forever! AHHHH!


Goodbye 2017!

Yes, in less than an hour this year will be finished and good riddance to it!  It wasn't as big of a dumpster fire as 2016 was, but it wasn't a lot better.  I'm hoping that 2018 is the best year ever!  I made the easiest resolution of all.  Drink more coffee. :P  Not a problem to fulfill this one. :D 

I am going to play Pocket Camp with ABC on mute so I can watch the ball drop. LOL  I don't care for the 'entertainment', I just want to see the ball drop in Times Square.  After that, I'll play more Animal Crossing before going to bed.  Here is hoping that 2018 is a good one.


Back on track

With my internet back, I got back on track today.  I got up and after breakfast, I went for my walk.  I got back from it and had time to relax with a cup of coffee before doing my workouts.  I did those and then played some Pocket Camp  before fixing lunch.  After lunch, I played more Pocket Camp and then worked on straightening up an area of my room that needed it. It's all done and looks so much better!  I wanted to do that.  It's an area that doesn't get used a lot, so it gets cluttered and dusty.  I got rid of the clutter, organized everything, dusted, and swept.  It's nice now.

I was relaxing after that and playing more Pocket Camp when my friend texted and asked if I want to go eat.  I did, so we did.  After we ate, we went to Ollie's and he got some things he needed.  He got me a paper cutter.  I found one that was only twenty dollars.  I was happy.  I've been wanting one like this.  I also got a journal.  I didn't need another journal, but this one is actual graph paper and it's blue with a pencil on the front. Here is my haul from Ollies:

I have the new bigger cutter on my craft cart with my smaller cutter and some sharpies. ^_^ It will be much easier to cut larger stacks of paper with this cutter than my little one.  I've wanted one for a while now and I was happy to see this one in Ollie's!


Internet is back!

I got my internet back today.  It was an interesting process. When I woke up, I turned on my phone and had three voice mails!  All from my IP.  They scheduled an appointment today from ten to twelve, but I didn't know anything about it!  The guy yesterday didn't put in the correct notes.  I called them and the guy was nice enough to come back even though the order had been cancelled.  He was able to get me up and running.  I was grateful for that.  Two days without internet is two days too many!  I got my network set up and I had been texting a friend back and forth.  He needed to run some errands and I had mentioned some things I needed.  He said he'd take me to get what I needed if I ran errands with him.  I did and I was gone most of the day.  I didn't get to walk today, but I'll make up for it tomorrow!  I did do my workouts since I could use the internet freely again.  

I haven't done much else.  I was with the techs almost right after I got up and then I left with my friend after that.  I came home and did a few things I needed doing here.  I took a bath and did my workouts.  I worked a puzzle in the past two days and I was able to flip it over so I could tape it together to keep it.  It fell partially apart TWICE when I was trying to flip it.  I had to re-do parts of it twice, but I finally got it over and now it's together and on my wall.

While we were out, my friend went by Starbucks and I ran in and got one of my free drinks.  I also got a mug that I've been wanting since the Fall when they first put it out.  I'll post a picture of it at the end of this post.  I am going to go get in bed and play Pocket Camp.  I didn't play a lot the last few days since I didn't want to use up my data. I'm going to play a LOT to catch up! :D

Yay for the holiday being done!

Now, hopefully things can get back to normal. I walked today and thankfully it wasn't anywhere as near a cold as yesterday. That was a relief.  I didn't want to come home a popsicle again!  It was cold, but not as bad.  I got home and had time to relax a bit before doing my workouts.  They were all cardio.  I did those and then had a bit of time to relax before fixing lunch.  

I stopped at the grocery store on my way back from my walk and picked up a few things with my gift card. I actually have a couple of dollars left on it. I got right at $25 but I forgot I had a coupon for 10% off my order and that brought it down a little bit.  I'll have that if I need it later this week or whenever.

I didn't really do much else today.  Just walked, did my workouts, and then stayed in.  I washed several days worth of dishes.  It consisted mainly of plates and coffee cups! :p  I've already done my French lesson, and I took a bath earlier because I was cold and it helped warm me up.  I'm going to get off the computer and crash on my bed with my phone and play Pocket Camp. ^_^
