Monday Madness FTW! :p

Sorry about that short post yesterday.  I wasn't near the Mac and I posted with my phone.  I really didn't want to post a lot that way but I wanted to get my post in.  So, today I went for my usual walk and came back and cooled off.  I then went back out to walk to the post office!  I had a stack of pen pal letters.  My friend picked me up at the post office and I rode with him on an errand and then he dropped me home.  When I got home, my packages were here.  No, not the MBP. :(  I did get the pretty Fossil wallet, my 12 Fitbit bands, and my washi.  Everything is so pretty!  The Fossil wallet is perfect for my needs.  It holds everything I need and it takes up less space!

The bands are all so pretty.  I have tried on the lime green, the blue, and now I'm wear the hot pink one. LOL  I was able to store them in some roll up pencil cases I got on Amazon some time ago.  They are all nice quality.  The washi is gorgeous!  It's even prettier in person than it was on the site.  A bonus item?  Yes! One of the regular rolls had a slim roll with it. Yay!  I love this particular brand of washi. It's great quality and it's always pretty!  It was a good mail day.  Tomorrow, my MBP should be here.  I am so ready for it!  I'll do a whole post about it tomorrow, I'm sure!

Variety, please!

I went on Amazon and looked at different bands for the Fitbit Charge 2.  I wanted some different colors, especially a blue color.  Well, I found a cool set of them that has 12 bands.  It has black, purple, pink, blue, lime, and more.  There are several different blue colors, two pinks, a red, a grey, a white.  They look pretty cool. They were less than $20 for the entire set.  I wanted to do the $25 order with free shipping, so I went to my wish list and tossed in some washi that was on my wish list.  It's the Molshine brand and they make great washi.  I will get all this for $15, because I have a ten dollar gift card. Yay!

My MBP is now in Kentucky.  It still says estimated delivery on Tuesday.  I hope it gets here before, but at this point, I'm just happy to know it's really on the way!  I also ordered a Fossil wallet on ebay last week.  It's used, but it still looks nice and it was really cheap.  I got it for less than 12 shipped!  The outside is rosy pink and the inside is colorful.  It's pretty.  I'll probably post it when I get it. :p  

I walked today and it was so much cooler than it has been and it was amazing.  It was overcast for part of my walk, but sunny for the rest.  It was so nice to walk when I wasn't dying. lol  I didn't even sweat too much.  I wish it could be like this everyday I walk.  Oh well, I'm sure it will get back to normal soon!  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I did those and my French and then rested a while before having lunch.  I was hoping to get to the post office today.  My friend had said he'd come and try to fix my brakes today, but he didn't.  My other friend 'was busy' so she couldn't carry me to the post office.

Speaking of the post office, I'm SO behind on writing letters. I'm going to have to sit down tomorrow and write letters until my hand falls off. LOL  I'm so behind.   I wanted to go to the post office and get every letter there and then get all my letters caugh up at the same time.  Maybe I'll get there tomorrow.

Here is the picture of the bands:

Finally!

So, I decided enough was enough and contacted ebay today.  They said they'd let the seller know and if I didn't hear anything from them in four business days they would get this settled.  Guess what got picked up by FedEx this afternoon?  Yes, a week after they created the label and saying they had shipped it, they turned it over to FedEx!  Expedited shipping. UGH!  So, it is finally in FedEx hands.  It says it should be here Tuesday.  I wish they could get it here faster, but I guess I should be happy I'm getting it at all at this point!

I got in my walk today and it was so damn hot.  After my walk, it clouded up a lot and then it rained for a bit.  That cooled things down considerably and it's supposed to be a lot cooler tomorrow than it was today.  I say, GOOD!  I will enjoy that.  I just hope it doesn't rain. :p  

The past three days I've been so sleepy all day to lack of sleep.  As soon as I lie down to sleep, BOOM, wide awake. UGH!  Hopefully tonight I'll be able to go to bed at a good time. This not being able to sleep until 4am is getting old!  


Cool extras are nice!

So, still no word on my MBP even being on the way. ~_~;  I am so frustrated!  I did get the correct cover for it today, though.  It actually came with two of the keyboard covers.  They fit my Macbook, so since they sent two, I am using one on my Macbook.  The keyboard must have the exact same layout.  Cool! I like the blue, it looks nice with my white Macbook.  It will also help protect the keyboard.

The snap on case is quite pretty and it's nice and sturdy.  I just wish my MBP would get here so I can put it on it.  According to the listing on the MBP, today was the day it was estimated to be delivered.  I don't think I'm ever going to get it at this point.  I contacted the seller today, but I haven't heard anything yet.  I'd even pay for overnight shipping if I knew I could get it tomorrow!  I'm so upset.  Don't put 'expedited shipping' on your item and then not follow through!

Goodness!

I did not want to walk today as it was so extremely hot. I did though because I needed to get a few groceries to make it through for a few days.  Since my brakes are shot, I certainly couldn't drive to the grocery store!  I picked up several things and some of them were frozen. I carried a cold bag with me so they made it home safely.  I got home and it took a while to cool off and get rested.  I called a friend to see if she wanted to go eat.  She is the one that usaually won't go anywhere. lol  She said she needed to go to the grocery store for her mom and if I'd go with her to the store, she'd go with me to eat.  Deal!  We went to eat and then I went with her to the grocery store.  I would have gotten my groceries while we were out, but she didn't go to my store.  Oh well, I am okay for a few days like I said.  Oh, we also went to the Starbucks drive thru. :p  I got a caramel frappuccino instead of a latte today.  

I helped her put away the groceries at her mom's and then she took me to Family Dollar so I could get a few things I needed.  After that she dropped me home.  I haven't done my workouts and I still need to do those.  I may skip them, but I really shouldn't!  It's cardio day, so I am going to be hot. lol  I sat down and wrote out all my bills. I am broke and I haven't gotten my regular groceries.  Oh well.  Hopefully my Macbook Pro will come before August!  I swear, I'm beginning to wonder!  It still hasn't updated.  It still says, "Info sent to FedEx."  Expedited shipping MY ASS! UGH


Monday madness, again!

So, yeah.  I walked today and it was ridiculously hot out there.  I thought I was going to die before I got home.  I didn't die and I did get home. I was still so hot and worn out from walking in the heat that I put off my workouts.  I actually just did them a little bit ago.   I wanted to get them in and I didn't want to wait too late.  

I had to re-wash my bed linen today!  I got some detergent to test from one of my survey sites. It smelled fine in the bottle, but it was way too overpowering.  I didn't like how much scent was in my linens, so I re-washed them today in my regular detergent.  SO much better!  I like my bed linen to smell clean, that stuff was just ick. ;p

 


So not my day!

I came to the site this afternoon and happened to notice something.  I can't believe I hadn't noticed it until now!  Look:

Oops

I fixed it as you can see the banner is now correct!  Tonight, I felt bleah after eating some dinner that didn't really taste all that great.  I thought I would run up to a drink machine and get a soda to settle my stomach.  My brakes decided that tonight was the perfect time to mess up. As I was going across the railroad tracks, I heard a metallic clang.  I got my car back to my house and then walked to the tracks.  I found the piece that fell/broke off my car and carried it home. I didn't want it to derail a train or anything!  I got home and I've just now gotten cooled off from that.  I never did get my soda. :(


UGH

Well, I finally got an update on shipping today.  It was finally shipped.  The estimated date of arrival?  July 10th!  I'm so frustrated. I hope it comes a lot quicker than that!  I did get the case for it today.  I'm not sure if I got the right one.  I thought I was ordering the correct one, but the keyboard cover thing doesn't look like it will work on the keyboard.  I won't know for sure until I get my MBP.  I hope it works.  

I just double checked.  I did buy the wrong one. ^^;;;;;  I just ordered the correct one and filled out a form to return the one I received today.  I think I need to go to bed and stay there!
