Being Lazy Feed

Booo!

So, I didn't walk today either.  I woke up with a horrible headache.  The idea of going out in the cold and wet was not very appealing.  I decided to lay back down after eating breakfast and taking some Advil.  I actually napped on and off for several hours.  Luckily, when I got up, my headache was gone.  So glad for that!  I only ran out once this afternoon to hit a Pokestop so I wouldn't lose my streak.  I did that and came right back home. 

I spend the day not doing much. I watched some true crime shows on Prime and I watched Sunday's episode of The Simpsons.  I didn't even think about it yesterday!  I decided that updating my Mac would be a great idea tonight and started it and then I was stuck.  I had nothing to review for writing on NaNo tonight.  I just opened the old MacBook and opened Bean and wrote.  I got some of my writing done and then the update was done on the MacBook Pro.  I connected them over the network and transferred over what I had written.  I put it in Scrivener and finished my writing for the day.  After I type this out, I'm going to relax and read before bed.  I plan to walk tomorrow.  It's supposed to be overcast, but I don't think it's supposed to rain.  It's also double star day at Starbucks, so I might just go over there and do NaNo tomorrow night and write some pen pals letters.  We'll see how that goes!


25,000 words!

Yes, I hit the half way mark with tonight's writing.  I was not looking forward to writing either.  I belong to a regional group at NaNo.  My area doesn't have any write ins within driving distance, so I was able to join NaNo Virginia elsewhere.  Last Monday there was a Facebook live event.  I was late to it because the reminders on my phone didn't alert me fast enough. I still participated.  Then, there was one tonight.  I got in on that one from the start and got writing.  We did three sprints.  One five minute, one fifteen minutes, and one thirty minutes.  I ended up with a few less than what I wrote today. I had to add a few more words as I was in the middle of a sentence when the sprint ended. :P . All in all, it brought my count to 25,000! Yay! Go me!

I had planned to walk todaqy but the weather had other ideas!  It was only 32˚ when I got up.  I noticed it was overcast.  Not bad I thought, that doesn't mean it's going to rain.  It rained.  LOL It rained a lot.  I decided to skip my walk since it was going to be both cold and wet out there.  I should have gotten on the treadmill, but I ended up being a lazy butt! :P

I wouldn't have left the house at all today, but I had to pick up my prescriptions.  They couldn't wait until tomorrow.  It was cold, and nasty out when I went to pick them up.  I do not like to drive in the rain at night.  It's hard for me to see at night in good weather, rainy weather makes it worse.  Bleah!  Oh well, I got my scripts and came home.  

I spent the day trying to get the iPod touch to load to the MBP.  It's done it plenty of times before. It's my old, old iPod touch and I use it for loading audiobooks to listen to on my walk.  It would not load.  I tried it with my old Macbook and it recognized it right away.  Weird. I was able to load something on it so I'll have that, but I need to get the MBP to recognize the iPod.  It worked fine just a few days ago.  Weird.   I reset the touch to factory and it still wouldn't work.  Luckily, I had backed it up in July on the Macbook so I was able to put sync it back to the way it was then.  The only thing is, I have Cell and it was on the old touch.  It didn't sync back to it and I can't find it.  I'll have to go and see if I can re-download it from Audible. I got it during a trial on Audible.  I just found it and was able to re-download it. Yay!


Bleah! LOL

So, I bought a frozen dinner at the grocery store yesterday that I thought would be really good.  It wasn't!  I LOVE PF Chang's.  They have hat 'at home' meals for several years now, but they just started making an at home version of my favorite thing in their restaurant.  Their chicken lo mein is the BEST ever!  I saw that my grocery store had a frozen dinner version of that a week or so ago.  I finally got one last night.  The picture of the food on the box didn't look like it does at the restaurant, but I figured if it tasted like it, yay!  So, I decided to make it for dinner tonight.  Big mistake. It's horrible.  It tastes exactly like EVER OTHER frozen Asian dish I've ever tried.  GROSS.  I've tried every teriyaki chicken and every fried rice I can find and they all taste the same.  They are not good.  I was very disappointed in this and I'm so glad I only bought one!

I actually have had one dish that was an Asian inspired dish that was pretty good. It was from Lean Cuisine of all people!  Their sesame chicken is delicious.  It's a really small portion though.  Still, it's the only frozen Asian meal I've ever had that was good. I'll stick with my local Chinese and Japanese restaurants for good food.  I so wanted this dinner from PF Chang's to be good.  We don't have a PF Chang's here, so I'm only able to eat there out of town.

Oh well! Live and learn! I didn't walk today. I decided to take a rare day off and just relax.  I did just that.  After lunch though, I felt the need to get out for a little bit.  I drove to Target and hit the Dollar Spot.  I got seven cute Halloween items!  I got a notepad, a caution tape, pumpkin washi, a little Hallloween sign, a wooden? jack o lantern, a jack light up necklace, and a jack bucket.  All cute things.  I then noticed that the Starbucks in Target HAD the acorn / fall gift cards. WHEE!  I went and got what I thought were two sets.  I got home and realized I had one complete set and I was missing one from the other. Boo!  I was going to wait and go back tomorrow but the power in my house went out!  My friend who lives less than a mile away said his was out too.  It was an big outage from what I learned later. 

I decided to run back to Target Starbucks and get the card I missed. I'm glad I did, because I saw some other cards that I didn't have so I was able to grab a few of those. I was going to get a drink in there, but they were out of an ingredient, so I just went to my regular Starbucks and hit the drive thru.  I got a Frappuccino since I was hot and I didn't have air at home!  I came home and the power was still out.  It was starting to get dark outside, so I lit some candles and just drank my Frappuccino and relaxed.  The power came on not too long after that.  

Still no word on my Nano shirt being shipped. Boo! lol I want to see it.  Oh! I did run a milkshake by a friend's house on my way home from the first trip to Target. He is the one that does a lot for me and carries me out to eat all the time.  He tried to give me the money for his shake and I wouldn't let him.  I like to treat when I can.  

I have my notebook out that I used to NanoWriMo last year and I plan to write some ideas and notes for this years book. I have a idea of the majority of the book, but I want to have other stuff to lead up to that point. I want to get my notes down.   I also want to re-read the first two books before this year's so I can make notes and remember things I might have forgotten.  This one is going to be mainly centered around my two main characters and their Corgis on a dangerous road trip, but the other characters will be there in the beginning.  I want to re-familiarize myself with everyone. 


Hmmm

Sorry about last night's post.  I got to watching Adventure Time on Hulu and it was too late to pull out my Macbook Pro to make a post, so I just typed up a quick one with the Goodyear blimp picture!  It was in my city this weekend.  I saw it go over while on my walk and took several pictures of it.  I've loved seeing it since I was a little girl. My daddy worked at Goodyear when I was growing up. ^_^

Today I woke up and it was hotter than it had been yesterday.  Yesterday's walk was horrid because of the heat.  I decided today that I would just skip it!  I did, too!  The fact that it was well after 4 am when I got to sleep last night probably had a lot to do with it too.  I was just so tired this morning.  I'll get back on track tomorrow.  I just hope it isn't as hot.  I didn't do my workouts today either. ^^;  Yeah, it was a lazy day.  I haven't felt too great lately, so I think a day off of doing nothing might help.  I can't be sick now, I leave for Myrtle Beach on Sunday! ^____________^  I can't wait to -post from the beach.  Yes, the MBP is going with me.  We'll be staying at a place we've never stayed before, so I'll have a new place to explore.  I think there is a coffee shop in the hotel.  Not a Starbucks, but still that is cool!


Monday birthday times....

Just has I figured, I didn't hear from any of my friends wanting to do anything today. I expected no less.  I skipped my walk and my workouts since I felt like it.  I did walk on the treadmill for a little bit, but no where near what I needed to do to get my steps in for the day.  Oh well.

I went to Starbucks this afternoon and got a crazy sweet concoction.  I got a venti vanilla latte with 5 pumps caramel, whip, and caramel sauce drizzle.  WOWEEE was it sweet. @_@;  I'm so used to my Cascara latte. Oh well, it was good.  I saw Dookie the Corgi and his folks come in as I got there.  I had to park and go see Dookie and get Corgi kisses! ^______^ . That totally made my day!

I played with him a bit and then even got to give him his puppuccino! :D . I stayed a bit longer and then went on so I could drink my drink.  One of my prescriptions should have been ready yesterday, but they were out.  They were supposed to get some today, but they said it would be tomorrow! I was already a day late in taking them, so I asked if any of the other company stores had them.  They checked and said two of them did. I called the closest one and they said they didn't.  I called the one furthest away, and they had them! I had them fill them and drove to get them.  My car was acting up but I got there and back.

I did get something good for my birthday from myself! LOL I ordered a new Starbucks tumbler on eBay last week and two Starbucks gift cards to add to my collection.  They all came today.  Here is the tumbler and cards:

I love the color of that tumbler and the two cards are cool. The second one is now one of my favorite Starbucks card designs ever. Books, snow, and Starbucks coffee? Yes!  


Lazy day for sure!

I didn't walk or do my workouts today!  I took the day off of everything.  I need to take a break every now and then!  I will get right back to my normal schedule tomorrow.  I just didn't feel great when I got up today so I decided to take a break.  I did and it was pretty nice.  I might have gone for a walk later this afternoon, but my friend was going to come and look at my car.  He was able to put a brake on where mine fell off a few weeks ago.  After he did that, we drove it for a short distance to make sure it was okay.  He said it would be okay for me to drive it. YAY!  I can go get some things done tomorrow evening. ^_^

I would have gotten a few things done tonight, but it was after 9 when we got back from testing the car.  I was low on gas, so I got $5.00 worth while we were out.  That way I'll be able to go to the grocery store and the recycle center soon!  I usually go to the recycle center on Monday because it's empty then.  I'll try to remember to walk past the containers on my walk tomorrow.  If it's stuffed, I'll wait, but if it's not too bad, I'll go ahead and go.  My recycling it piling up like crazy.  

I'm so glad to be able to drive my car again.  I hate not being able to go and get things when I need them.  It's so much easier to run to the store for myself and not have to ask someone else to carry me!
