I'll be ready to go out and I can't go!

What am I babbling about?  Well, I ordered a laptop bag today for the MBP since my laptop bag was too small, yes, I could use the sleeve and I might use that too at times, but I wanted an actual bag. I ordered one on Amazon and I also ordered a clear snap-on case for the MBP.  It's blue and clear. This MBP is in such great shape so it will look so nice in that case.  I looked at a lot of cases.  The ones I really wanted were $20 and up. This one was $10 and it looked nice.  I hope I like it. I am not a fan of the 'frosted' look and that is the case that is on it now.  I could have gotten a pink one but my new laptop bag is pink.  That is too much pink! :p. The laptop bag came in black (too basic), blue (not a good shade) and grey (I think). I liked the pink the best.  It's pretty cool. It opens completely. If you pulled the zipper down, you can lay the bag out flat.  The laptop goes in the big sleeve side and there are two smaller pockets on the other side and it has an outside pocket.  I like it.  I hope I picked right by getting the pink.  I like pink in limited doses. :p

As for I'll be ready to go and I can't go.  I can pack up my laptop to go out, but that is really not an option now.  I miss going out and sitting in Starbucks on my laptop. I am getting the bag and case with the hope that a future time will be back to normal and I can go sit in Starbucks!  I shouldn't have bought them both this month, I'm low on money because my personal property taxes were due and my post office box was due.  I plan to go to the post office tomorrow and check my box, pay for my po box, and get any letters.  Then I hope to write all my letters.  Any that are at the post office and any at home.  I need to buy stamps too. I haven't had any in a while.  I want to get my letters caught up and sent out asap!

Here is the bag as shown on Amazon:

Time is hard!

I had to figure out that today was Wednesday.  That isn't the reason for the title of this post though! Well, partly.  The main reason is that I had the timeline off in my story I'm working on. Luckily it was easy to fix and I was able to do that.  I had an incident happen on a weekday and I had the days all off. I realized it while writing today and was able to fix it. It wasn't too hard to fix.  

 


Starbucks to start off the month right.

Well, the drink was good, but the ordeal I had getting it.  Let me tell you.  They were busy as usual so I drove around the building to get in line.  Some old hag in a truck came and pulled up from the other side and got right in front of me.  I was not amused but I went ahead and got behind her.  Of course she was smoking. ~_~: I'm glad I didn't have to run the vent.  I kept my window up until I could get to the order box.

This is when the next bit of drama happened.  I ordered a Venti peppermint white mocha with caramel brulee sprinkles instead of the chocolate sprinkles.  This caused some confusion.  I think the girl taking the order was new.  I've ordered this before with no issues. I'm not one to get mad at the baristas, so I just patiently waited while she sorted it out.  She finally got it straight (she asked if I had said frappuccino, no I had not) and I went up in line.  Of course, the old hag in front of me had to order something that took forever.  

I finally get to the window and the girl takes my Starbucks card and I tell her it's with stars. That goes smoothly and she hands me my drink.  It's a peppermint white mocha all right. Only, she gave me a grande instead of a venti! :(. After everything that had happened, I just took it with a smile and went on my way.  It was delicious in any case.  I did not want the line to get any longer.  When I left, they were back further than they had been when I got in line so I was doubly glad I didn't get it fixed. I deployed a Munzee while I was out and then headed home.  

I wrote some on my other story tonight. I have some ideas of some other stories running around in my head.  These are old and much-loved characters so I am happy to get back to them.  


Goodbye November and NaNoWrimo!

It's hard to believe that tomorrow is December! I wrote a bit more for NaNoWriMo today and made it to 55,007 words!  I was happy to get there, too!  I will start back on my other story tomorrow.  I'm going to re-read it tonight so I can get back into it.  

I went out to do my recycling today and decided to go to the grocery store while I was out.  I didn't plan to go when I left the house, but then I just decided, what the heck. I went and got my groceries.  I have plenty of good things to eat and I have a lot of snacks, too! :p. I love to snack.  I almost went to Starbucks while I was out, but then I remembered that tomorrow was the first and I always like to go on the first. I don't have any money on my card at the moment, but I have enough stars for a free drink. That is what I'll use tomorrow. I hope to load a few bucks onto my card for December.  Starbucks For Life starts tomorrow!  Wish me luck. :p

It rained here last night and it was pretty heavy at times.  We had a flood warning go out today.  I have a weather alert radio.  I have it so that alerts are off.  It went off today!  I wonder if this is why whoever donated it to Goodwill did so! lol. It's gone off like this several times.  Luckily never when I'm sleeping.  It's so annoying and yes I check every time and it is still turned to OFF! Argh. Silly radio!


Hello from Sunday!

I finished my book today! I need to go back over the last few day's work and check it out.  I may need to add a few more things in, but it's pretty well done. I am almost at 55,000 words!  I might just write a few more and make it 55,000.  That would be neat. I am sure I have 800 more words I can add to it.  

I got my usual Sunday stuff done today, bed linen washed, hair washed, etc.  I also washed a bunch of dishes and put away a load of laundry that was in the dryer from yesterday.  I meant to put them away last night but I was so tired last night I didn't even think about it.  I want to write on my story that I've had on semi-hold since the beginning of NaNo.  I also need to create the December habit tracker and the week's speak for the first week of December.  I will either do that tonight or tomorrow.  It's in my bujo to do today, but I might wait and do it tomorrow.  It depends on if I get on a roll while writing or not.
