Beach trip denied?

Well, it's possible!  My friend told me today that our trip to Myrtle Beach later this month may have to be cancelled.  I'm not really very happy about that.  Hopefully things will work out.  

In other news, I'm so behind on writing pen pal letters, but I am really not in the mood tonight to write them.  I hope to get them all done tomorrow.  All eleven of them. @_@; 


I want to go to bed. I also want to eat.  I think I'll just get in bed and read.  I don't know.  It's been one of those days!  I had to run an errand downtown, so I stopped by the post office.  I had five letters.  This is good, but I haven't replied to the ones I had already. ^^;  AND  I had two yellow slips in my box that I need to go to counter for.  The counter is only open until 3pm.  I'll have to make another trip tomorrow and hope my poor old broken down car makes it!

I SHOULD get my replacement part for my Fitbit tomorrow.  I hope so.  I am hoping to find it tracks better. 

Thrifting and walking and food, oh my!

So, I got in my regular walk today. I stopped at CVS and got a book of stamps before heading home.  I didn't do my workouts after I got home as usual.  Instead, I went to the grocery store.  I spent more than I planned, but I got a lot of goodies.  I came home and put those away.  My friend wanted to eat and walk again!  I was surprised because he was pretty tired last night. :p

We rode to Eden NC to a trail over there.  First we ate at a little pizza place called Stella's pizza. It was quite good.  They are really just take out/delivery, but they had one booth inside and we ate in.  It was some damn good pizza!  After that, we headed to Goodwill so we wouldn't miss it before they closed.  I found a brand new pack of Staedler colored pencils for .49!  I also found a restaurant notebook, some assorted stationery, and a few other things.  The notebook is cool. You can keep track of restaurants you visit.  The stationery was some envelopes, some cute little cards and various other things.  Perfect for a pen pal person!  I also found a Fossil brand black leather purse. It's so nice and I paid a whole 1.49 for it! Yes, ONE DOLLAR and forty nine cents! WHOO!  I love a good bargain.  I also got a vintage candle trimmer thing.  You use it on the bottom of a candle so it will fit in a candle holder.  I also got a nice new wallet with the $35 price tag still on it for $2.  And, I found a Weight Watchers kit.  It's got two books on the point system and a little journal.  It's pretty cool.  Those things are really expensive brand new and I didn't have to join WW! LOL

All in all, it was a good trip to Goodwill.  After that, we went to the trail.  Almost this time last year, a tornado went through that trail and there was a lot of damage to trees.  They have a plaque about it.  The trail was re-directed at one point from the original trail!  We got through walking and headed back.

I got home and did my workouts. It was stretch day and it felt so good to stretch!  I am now going to relax until bed time as I'm extremely tired.  I need to catch up my receipts from today in my checkbook and see how much damage I did! :P  OH! I also received in the mail today my very first coffee grinder.  I got some whole bean coffee at the grocery store.  I am still working on making the perfect cup.  I made my first cup tonight and it was pretty good, but I want to experiment and see what I can come up with.  The grinder is easy to use and makes the kitchen smell good!

More Fitbit woes!

Seriously!  Today, I tracked my walk as I usually do with the Fitbit.  Well, it wouldn't connect to my phone to do the tracking.  I don't know why it wouldn't connect.  Also, when I've synced it various times today it's been bitchy too. :(  I think I'm going to have to get another replacement.  It's so frustrating!  I really love this device.  I want it to track my steps correctly and connect to my phone.

In other news, I started sleep in the Fitbit app itself last night and that did the trick!  I started sleep in the app, and then when I got up today, I clicked 'I'm awake' and then synced the tracker and that worked fine!  I put the Fitbit app on my ipod touch since I always turn my phone off when I'm sleeping.  Now if I can get the steps and syncing fixed, I'll be a happy camper! 

Good grief!

So, I'm still frustrated about the Fitbit situation.  Then, tonight, I went to do something on the Macbook and Chrome said it wouldn't be updating anymore unless I updated the Mac to a later version of OS X.  Well, when I had that issued the other year, I didn't fully upgrade to where I was before.  I just finished upgrading and then I had to re-download and re-install Chrome just so I could post this!  :P

I am talking to Fitbit support about the Fitbit issues.  I'm working on the Macbook more after posting this.  I want to see if there is anything else that needs updating while I'm at it.  It took almost two hours just to do the first update. Sheesh!

Fitbit Frustrations!

So, it's been officially a week with the new Charge 2 and it's just as bad as the other one. I am now not sure if it's just not as accurate as the One or if I was just unlucky enough to get two trackers that are messed up.  I don't know what do to.  I am pushing myself to get in my steps and it's hard.  I love everything about this tracker except the step situation. :(
