Macbook chargers

I am on the third charger since I got this Macbook in 2010!  This one is now acting up and I'm going to have to replace it, too.  At the moment, I was able to get it to charge, but I don't know how long that is going to last.  It's crazy that I've had to buy so many chargers.  They really need to make them better!  I'd like to just get a brand new Macbook, but I don't have the money.  I don't have the money at the moment for a charger either.  UGH!

I noticed earlier that even though it was plugged in, it was not charging.  I wasn't able to get it to charge.  I worked on it and finally got it to charge.  I'm not sure if it will work for long, but I'm hoping it will hang on until I can get a new charger.  I really want a new Macbook! :(  If I thought it would work, I'd start a GoFundMe to get funds to get a Macbook!  I really, really need one.  When the Mac wouldn't charge, I tried to use both the Windows laptop and the Linux one.  They both just made me want to use my Mac!

In other news, I got in a good walk today.  It was warmer, but not really warm.  It was mostly sunny though, so that was nice.  I came home from my walk and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I got those done and did my French.  My friend wanted to go eat today, so I went with him.  We went to one of our favorite local restaurants.  I had some delicious coffee.  Afterwards, I came home and called a friend.  She was outside walking the dog, so I walked up to see the pooch.  She is a miniature  Doxie and she is adorable!  I also needed to return a dish to them.  I tried my best to talk her into taking me to Starbucks, but it was a no go.  Phooey on her!

I did go myself a bit later.  I thought about getting one of the limited time Frappuccinos, but I ended up with a blonde flat white.  I've wanted to try a flat white for some time.  It was pretty good.  I usually like some flavor with my latte type drinks.  I probably would get this again, but I'd much rather have a flavored latte.  Still, it wasn't bad and the calorie count is only140 for a tall.  Not bad!  I still miss my cascara syrup. ;_;

 


Wednesday is Starbucks time.

Well, it was double star day today so, of course, I went to Starbucks. I'm all about those extra stars! :p  I went to the drive thru since I was over there later than usual.  I looked in as I drove by the front and there were plenty of seats. ~_~; Figures!  If I had gone to stay, I wouldn't have found a seat.  Oh well, I got my latte and it was pretty good.  I tried the blonde caramel latte.  It was pretty good, but nothing is as good as my cascara latte. :(  I miss that stuff.  Starbucks, if you are listening, BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!  

In other news, I walked today.  It was a bit overcast when I started, but the sun came out.  It's a good thing too.  I forgot my umbrella!  It rained during yesterday's walk and I went out with a friend yesterday evening, so I had my umbrella drying.  I forgot to put it in my backpack.  I was so happy when it didn't rain! :p

I did my workouts yesterday and today, I have been on schedule for everything.  A few days ago, I ordered the matching wallet to my new purse.  I can't wait to get it.  I've never had a  purse with a matching wallet.  I'll be so fancy. lol  I also ordered a Japanese Starbucks card yesterday on ebay.  It's a Sakara card and it's gorgeous!  I can't wait to get it.  Something cool to add to my collection. ^_^  I've always wanted some Sakura related from Starbucks so this was a no brainer.  I, of course, will share pictures when I get it.

Sorry about that post yesterday.  I was tired, frustrated, and just plain grumpy! It was just not a good idea to post to my blog when I was in that mood.  The rain yesterday was just depressing.  My friend wanted to go to one of our favorite local restaurants, so we did.  After I got home, I called another friend and she asked if I'd ride with her somewhere.  I did.  Her mom was in a car wreck yesterday.  Her truck is totaled.  They had to cut her out of it!  She is walking around today!  Amazing.  The woman is almost 70!  

I've been playing Pocket Camp.  I need TWO more of the navy ladybugs to get the Spring background.  Since I have until Saturday, I should be able to get it.  I just got the flower swing today.  There is one more thing to earn after the background, but if I get that, I'll be happy!  They also introduced new animals today! :)  The game is so fun.  Goldie is and always will be my favorite!


I'm one tired puppy!

So, I got in my walk and came home and relaxed for a bit before doing my workouts.  I was almost done with them when a friend called and wanted me to go somewhere with her.  I wanted to finish my workouts, so I said no.  I got my workout done and then my French and called her back.  She still wanted to go, so I decided to go too.  We went to Martinsville, Virginia which is not very far away for her to go to Belk and look at purses.  She didn't get the one she went for, but she got two others!  I on the other hand didn't go to look at purses and ended up with one.  I absolutely LOVE it.  It's a Lily Bloom.  I've never had one or even seen one before.  They are made from recycled plastic bottles and they have adorable designs.  Mine has cupcakes and coffee! :D  It's brown with colorful cupcakes and coffee cups on it.  The inside is bright green and it's gorgeous.  I'll share a few pictures:

Did I mention that I got it on sale?  Two discounts. Whee! So, after we finally got out of Belk, it took her forever to decide!  We went to Jerry's pizza.  It's a place in Martinsville that I've been to once before a long time ago.  They have remodeled since I went and it's pretty nice.  We shared a pizza and then went by McDonald's for caramel macchiatos.  We were in the drive thru for twenty minutes AFTER we ordered!  We finally got our coffees and headed home.  They were not very good. :(  I was disappointed!

We got back to town and I went to her house for a bit to see Cocoa, her mini Doxie whom I love!  Her son wanted something from Burger King so we rode down there.  While we were out, I got her to run me by Starbucks. LOL I had to get some good coffee to cancel out the bad coffee. :p  I got a tall blonde vanilla latte.  Delicious!  I came home and washed my hair. I'm drying it now and then I'll put my bed linen back on the bed.  I need to play some Pocket Camp as I haven't had a chance since this morning.  


Morning Starbucks!

So, we are under a severe wind advisory until tomorrow at about 11 am.  When I first woke up this morning, the power was out.  It was still out when I actually got up.  No power means my Keurig won't work.  OH NO!!!!!!!  I needed a boost, and I waited awhile and still no power.  I dressed and went to Starbucks!  I had a free drink on my card, so I got a venti blonde vanilla latte.  Delicious.  Not as good as my beloved Cascara, but it was good.  I also got a multigrain bagel for my breakfast.  It was a good breakfast.  

I came back home and noticed a utility worker in the neighborhood working on the pole.  I was home a little while and then the power came back.  Yay!  I am hoping it doesn't go out again, but the wind is still crazy, so it might.  The wind was so powerful that when I was driving back from Starbucks, my car actually MOVED to the right a bit.  I decided that even though the sky was  clear and beautiful, I was not walking today!  Too many chances to get hit my falling tree branches or flying debris.  I hate to miss a walk on a pretty day like that, but I'd rather be safe!

I just had my afternoon coffee.  The cup I usually have after getting home from my walk.  I am going to do my workouts at some point.  Not sure exactly when.  It's stretch day, so they don't take as long as there are less of them.  I am sitting at my desk looking out my window as I'm posting.  My neighbors wind chimes are going nuts across the street.  I bet it sounds pretty nice out there.  I bet my own wind chimes are moving around on my porch too.

Yeah, this post is all over the place. lol  Sorry.  I woke up tired and with a headache, so I'm seriously considering taking a quick nap!  I probably won't be able to sleep though.  Plus, if I get in a good nap, I won't sleep well tonight.  I guess I'll just watch more episodes of Forensic Factor on Hulu.  I'm almost done with the episodes they have.  


Friday fun

So, I walked today.  It was overcast and rainy when I got up, but when I went to walk, the sun came out!  It started to cloud up a bit while I walked, but it never rained on me.  I came home and was in relaxing for a while when it started to rain a lot and hard!  I was glad I missed all that!  I was going to do my workouts but a friend had said we'd go eat, so I put them off.

He finally came and we went to a local restaurant that we like.  We ate and then he dropped me home.  I came in and checked my bank account to see if I had enough to get my hair cut.  I did, so I went to the mall.  I got my hair cut finally and it looks so much better.  It was really getting on my nerves before.  It's short in back and longer in front just like I like it.  I bet I lost five pounds just from hair! LOL!  I left there and went by Starbucks.  It is right there at the mall! :P

So, I didn't get my beloved Cascara latte.  I wanted to try the new Blonde espresso.  I got a blonde vanilla latte and it was amazing!  I used to get vanilla lattes and would had a lot a caramel to them.  I didn't have to add anything to this.  I'm really liking the blonde espresso.  It's good.  I say that the blonde espresso is good.  Give it a try!

I came home from the mall and washed my hair.  I always have to wash my hair after getting a cut.  I did that and then did my workouts.  I have yet to eat dinner.  Oops.  I usually have lunch at 4 and dinner at 8 or 9.  I ate a little later than usual for lunch, so I'm not too far off on dinner.  I'm going to fix that after I finish typing this up.  I've already done my French lesson and the French guide I bought from Amazon came today.  It will be a help in my learning the language.  With just me glancing in it, I see some things I didn't know why were done and now I get it.  Cool!  It has a workbook feel to it with lessons and quizzes.  I am going to enjoy using it.
