Yes, it's Monday again. I did my usual today. I did my workouts, watched Sailor Moon, and went to the post office. I actually had two letters from pen pals. Yay! I might just have to go to Starbucks on Wednesday night and write letters. We'll see. Right now I'm going to watch more Sailor Moon S and then do some work in my bujo!
No, not really, but I think I set a record for myself today! :P I had six cups of coffee, and one of those was Starbucks! I had no plans to go to Starbucks today. I had planned to stay in and relax while doing my regular Sunday chores. I was in the middle of an episode of Sailor Moon when my phone rang. It was my friend that I'm always trying to get to go to Starbucks with me. She wanted to go to Starbucks! LOL! I couldn't say no when I ask her all the time, now could I? :P We went and I got a cascara latte and a chocolate chip cookie. :p It was good.
I did my workouts today, washed my bed linen and put it back on the bed, washed my hair, washed another load of clothes. Those I need to check on and see if they are ready for the dryer. I also ran out to the post office. I only got one letter. Phooey! I plan to write my letters tomorrow and get them all caught up. I'll try to mail them tomorrow too, if possible. I am so behind on everything! Sheesh!
OH! I watched all four of the new Adventure Time episodes on PS VUE. I have Adventure Time as one of my favorite shows so it saved all four of the new episodes. They were all good, but they just left me wanting more. They need to put out episodes in a timely manner. I know there isn't a lot of the show left, but I want to see what I can.
So yesterday, I wrote pen pal letters. I didn't go to Starbucks, though. I just wrote them at home. I got them all ready to mail and headed for the post office to mail them. I checked my box and I had five new letters! I will get those written sometime this week. I'm not sure which day, but before the weekend. I want to be all caught up with my mail before next weekend. Why? Beach trip. Yes, back to Myrtle Beach for a week. I'm so ready for this trip!
So, today's workouts were hell! Lol It's cardio day and the #100burpeeburnout was on there. I drank three bottles of water during my workouts! Lol
I ran out to go to the post office and mail my letters. While I was out, I somehow found myself in the Starbucks at Target! Lol I don't know how that happened. :p
I decided today that I should take my pen pal letters to Starbucks this afternoon. I was hoping they wouldn't be too busy and I'd be able to get a seat. They weren't, and I did! I sat at one of the little tables. My favorite table was taken. I wrote all but one of my letters and was on the last one when I decided to move to the comfy chairs for a bit. I had gotten there and saw my favorite table open up. I went and got it and spent the rest of the time there. ^_^ I was happy to get to sit in my favorite spot one last time. Last time? You ask. Well, this particular location is moving a short distance away into a larger location. They will be closing at 2pm on the 31st and won't re-open in the new location until August 4th. I'm glad I went as I didn't know they were moving so soon. I got to sit in my favorite comfy chair once more and at my favorite table. That was nice!
Also, while I was there, I got an extra drink for free! One of the regulars ordered his drinks and they were wrong somehow. I don't know the details. He gave one to a lady that was at the counter and asked around if anyone wanted the other. It was a caramel frappuccino. I said, yes! LOL! I had long since finished my cascara latte, so this was a nice surprise! I enjoyed it immensely. I shouldn't have had it as I had had a chocolate chip cookie, but free Starbucks! LOL
I got all my letters written. I hand wrote all of them. I just need to get them in envelopes and ready to mail. I'll do that after I finish typing this. I did take quite a lot of pictures of Starbucks while I was there. I'm going to miss this location. It was my first Starbucks! I've grown so fond of it. I'm sure I'll learn to love the new location too, but it won't be the same! Yes, I took my bullet journal with me. :)
Today's workouts were intense. It was arm day so that part wasn't so bad. The cardio video to open the workouts? The #100burpeeburnout YIKES! I survived. I think that was the main reason I figured Starbucks would be a good idea! After all the stress lately and then that, Starbucks was necessary. :P
I hope to get down to the post office tomorrow to mail these letters and check my box. I hope I have more letters. That would be cool. Of course if there are more than 9 that might be a bad thing! LOL!
So, I had to do some errands for my friends that are out of town. I went up to their house and got their van. Yeah, I had to drive a mom van. lol I went to check their post office box to see if they had any checks for their business. They had one, so I went to Starbucks. It was really hot outside and the van has no air! I got a Cascara latte and sat in Starbucks. I filled out the deposit slip and got that ready to go. I enjoyed sitting in there for a bit and I got my favorite table! I also worked on my bullet journal. I left there and went to the bank at the mall. They closed the drive thru. I had no clue. I remembered that their bank also has a location downtown. I went down there and deposited the check and then since I was near the post office, I stopped in there. There was plenty of parking for once. Yay! I checked my box and I had three letters. One from a regular pal and two from new ones. One is from one that I sent out a letter to recently to potentially be a pen pal. She wrote back and wants to be. Yay! I had another letter from a potential new pal. It's cool to get letters!
So, I went to two post offices, the bank, and Starbucks. I got home a bit later than I usually start my workouts, so I decided to just wait until after lunch to do them. I finished them a bit ago and now I'm done for the day. Well, almost done. I have to go back up to my friend's house to check their mail and that is pretty much it. I already went up and brought their trash can in and checked everything out. It was too early for the mailman, so I need to do that later. I'll probably go after I post this. That way, after I do that, I can just relax for the rest of the evening. I slept a little better last night, so that was good. Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight too.
I got a lot done today. I washed my bed linen and put it back on the bed. I also did my workouts. I took my pen pal letters with me when I went to the porch today. I wanted to go to Starbucks and write letters, but with my car being so weird, I just decided to stay here. I did carry a coffee out there with me!
I wrote my pen pal letters and worked on my bujo. I just need to put the letters in envelopes and I can mail them off tomorrow. I ate my leftover pizza for supper and now I'm totally stuffed. Bleah! lol I will get right back on track tomorrow. I WILL get to my goal weight!
So, I pulled the zero key off my Macbook today and cleaned under it. It still doesn't work. If I had some compressed air, I'd try that, but I don't have any at the moment. I will just continue to use my Mac without the zero key. If I need it, I have the onscreen keyboard I can pull up or I can use my bluetooth keyboard.
I got my workouts in today and then ran to the recycle center. My car did okay. It actually started right up too! I got my recycling done and headed home. I fixed lunch and then did a few things I needed to do. I mowed my front lawn. Now my entire yard is done. It was really hot out there. I was glad to get it finished. I wrote pen pal letters and drove my car yet again. It did okay this time too. I shouldn't have driven it twice today, but I wanted to get my letters mailed and I really wanted to check my box! I had four new letters, a postcard from a pen pal, a envelope with two post cards from another pal, and some junk mail. It was great to have letters. I will get those written in a few days.
I finally got my printer re-connected to my Macbook. I had some issues with it for a while and it wouldn't work at all. I had to transfer everything to my Windows laptop to print. I got that fixed today after some work. I'm glad I got that done. It's much better to be able to print off of all my computer. Now if I could just get my Linux laptop to print!
By the way, getting the key back on the Mac was interesting! The key itself was easy, but there is a little scissor like contraption under it. That was the hard part. I got it back together and if I get some compressed air, I won't have to pull up that part. At least I hope not. lol It was getting ridiculous and then I just pulled up another key and looked to see how the little scissor thing was under that one. That did the trick. Sometimes it's fun being a geek and sometimes it's just frustrating! :)
In case you wanted to see it, here is a picture of all the mail in my post office box:
Well, technically I've been having car troubles for over two years now. They are just worse today. I had to run to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed. It took awhile, but I finally got my car to start. It's acting up worse than usual, so it didn't want to drive down to the grocery store. I got it there, though. I debated on leaving it running, but I was afraid it would overheat. I turned it off and went in and got my groceries. In line, I was freaking out beaause my keys weren't in my purse. I thought I was going to have to call a friend to come get me, carry me home to get my spare keys and come back. Scratch that. The spare key was in my car as I had thought about leaving it running! Luckily for me, I put my keys in the hand basket I was using so I was able to check out and got out to my car with no issues. It started up fine and I was able to get home with no issues. I was so happy! I need to sit down and write pen pal lettters as I'm behind because of my beach trip. I hope to get those done today and somehow get to the post office tomorrow to mail them and check my box for any new ones. I might type up this batch. I hate to send typed letters, but sometimes it's the easiest when I'm so behind! Plus, I want to get them done so I can get them out. :)
OH! I have been using my Macbook since the beach trip and I noticed that my zero key doesn't work. Luckily there is a work around. I can pull up an on screen keyboard and get it that way. Thank you Google! :D
One more thing. Did I mention that I got BACON at the store? I love me some bacon. Bacon is life, bacon is good. lol
Today I wrote the two letters that I had and went ahead and mailed them. I checked my box while at the post office and I had nine more! Yikes! I plan to try to write some of them tomorrow and finish the rest on Monday. At least that is the plan! We'll see how that goes. The ones I got today are all from regular pals except one. I got a letter from a new pal. That is always nice!
I have been really tired all day today. I got my workouts done and I wanted to walk, but it was raining and then storming, so I didn't get to do that. Hopefully on Monday. We'll see! I need to get back into walking regularly. I want to get down to my goal weight. I'd love to be back to a good weight by the beach trip in late May! That would be awesome.
