It shipped! Whee!

I got my confirmation today that the replacement iPad Mini shipped! Let's hope this one is perfect and works and lasts for many, many years.  I am so ready to get it and set it up.  I think I've found a way to get my app to the new iPad.  I just have to have it with me to try it. I've been researching.  If I can get that one app over, I'll be a very happy camper!  I also found the way to see what apps I've ever downloaded.  I know there have been times when I got some free apps via Starbucks.  They used to give cards out in stores that you could get a free song or app. I wish they still did that. I got some great apps that way.  Some of them that I download, may have not been compatible with my iPod since the iOs on it is so old. I'm sure anything that I find that I want to use will be okay with the iPad because it will upgrade to iOS 12.  I know it will because I did that with the one I sent back.

I walked today and it was a bit cooler than yesterday.  There were no short sleeves today!  It was sunny for the most part though. It did cloud up a little, but it didn't rain, so that was fine.  I was glad to get home though as I was tired and a bit chilly.  It was after 4 am when I finally got to sleep last night and it's affected me all day.  This morning, I was trying to make coffee without putting coffee in the Keurig. LOL!  

This evening, I did my January habit tracker in my new bullet journal.  I also did the first week of 2019 in there.  I have printed out a calendar to trace and make the other side of my January habit tracker page.  I want to get it set up. I am ready to move into it now! LOL . I love it already.  


What a difference a day makes!

Todau, the sun was out on my walk and it was in the 60's! It was warm enough to walk with short sleeves on. Much nicer than yesterday for sure!

I came home and changed and then went to Family Dollar to get first of the month essentials, I then went to Food Lion and got groceries. I got a lot of goodies, loaded them up, and got back in my car. The car didn't want to start and did the same thing it did that night at Target. The time of the day it was, it was bad for me because my friends were all at work. A nice man pulled in near my car and I asked him if he had jumper cables. He did! He got my car going again. Thank you random stranger!

I got home and put away my groceries. I was in the process of that when my friend texted me and said he was bringing by a couple of hot dogs. I was happy since I wouldn't have to worry about fixing lunch. He brought me two chili hot dogs and a Mountain Dew. Yum! It was nice to sit and eat and just enjoy.

After eating, I paid all my bills and now I'm broke again! I had two extra bills this month. Personal property taxes and the rent on my post office box . Two extra bills did not help!  I still need gas in my car and I need to buy postage stamps. I am so behind on pen pal letters and I will be sending out some holiday cards this month. Luckily, I already have two new boxes of those, I only need the stamps!

My iPad was delivered back to the seller today. Hopefully they'll send the replacement out soon. I'm so ready to set it up and use it. I've been looking at things to add to it online and I found an article that might help me get that one last app over to the iPad! Yay! I hope so. That way, all my favorites will be on the iPad. The screen is such a difference with the iPod touch! Lol


Friday again

So, I didn't really post yesterday.  I had a stressful day.  I found an iPad mini 3 for a really good price.  I didn't want a regular sized iPad as I feel they are too big.  The mini seemed to be the right size for me.  I ordered one and it came yesterday.  I had ordered a case for it and it arrived yesterday too.  I opened it up and got to setting it up right away.  The iPad was refurbished and it looked brand new.  I got the apps from my iPod touch transferred over to it.  I was able to get all but one of them on there and working.  I upgraded it to iOs 12 and was loving it.  Then, I noticed a red spot on the screen when it was dark.  I didn't like that, but as long as it wasn't visible, that was okay.  Well, then, the screen got tiny vertical lines across it and below those lines, the screen went all weird.  I looked up the problem and it seems that the LCD was bad. I was extremely disappointed as i had been so looking forward to this and using it.

I sent it back to the seller and then will send me a replacement when it gets to them.  I hope the new one is in nice of aesthetic shape and I hope it works well! It was so frustrating to get it all set up and upgraded just to have to reset it to factory and send it back!  That had been so upset and frustrated yesterday that I didn't feel like doing anything.  Hopefully it will get to them and my 'new' one will be on it's way to me soon.  I really want to use it.  If I could get that one last app transferred over, that would be amazing.  I backed up my iPod touch so I could use that app on the iPad but since it's no longer in the app store, it won't let me open it.  That is weird, because there are a few other apps that aren't in the store anymore and those opened and worked!  Perhaps I'll find a way in the interim.

Remember how I said the new Stephen King book would probably be ready for me soon?  Well, I downloaded it to the Kindle today and read it already. lol  It was good, but I'm still digesting it.  It was super short and didn't take me long at all.  I read in just a few hours.


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!


Brrr!

Today's walk was rather chilly! It was only in the 40's today and the wind was blowing. It wasn't so bad when it wasn't windy, but when it was.  BRRR!  I got my walk in though and then came home and put on warm 'at home' clothes which include 'give up on life pants' (sweat pants) lol . I actually turned my heater on in my room for the first time today!  I had brought it in a while ago, but I hadn't turned it on yet.  I finally broke down today and turned it on.

Last night, my friend needed to go to Target to pick up some things and I rode with him.  I saw some gift cards at Starbucks as we were leaving that I'd missed the night before.  He was on a schedule so I didn't get to look at them.  I ran back over there tonight and got the ones they have that I didn't have.  I now have 11 of the holidays cards. I think there are about 50 this year. Yikes! LOL I took a picture of the ones I had so when I get to the regular Starbucks and go in, I will know which ones I already have.  My collection is really growing!

I was going to get a drink at the Starbucks in Target but there was a long line and it's usually only one person working the Starbucks in there.  I decided to hit the drive thru of the regular one. I did that and came home with my delicious caramel brulee latte!  It was so good.  I got home and realized that I needed a few staples at the grocery store, so I decided to go.  I figured wiht it being a little later in the day (after 7) it wouldn't be as crowded and I was right.  I got sugar, bananas, cheese, Coke, ketchup, bread, and 3 froxen dinners. My favorite ones.  They were 2/$5 and buy two, get one free. So technically, 3/$5.  i was lucky with my bread.  Sometimes they won't have any of it as I buy a kind that they don't stock a lot of. It's Heiner's 35 if you are interested.  Each slice is only 35 calories and it tastes like regular bread to me.  They had one loaf and I grabbed it!  

I came home and was sort of slacking off.  I finally opened Scrivener and wrote my NaNo words for today.  I'm now officially over 20000! Yay!  I've done my French and I'm blogging now, so the only thing I need to do is some work in my bullet journal and then I'm going to climb into bed and read.  I'm still reading the book about Marie Hilley.  I'm getting near the end.  I put it on hold for a few days early on in NaNo.  I hope one of my holds at the library show up soon so I'll have something to read when I'm done with it.

I'm almost done with IT, too. I've been listening to the audiobook on my daily walks.  I think I'm going to load the Dark Tower books on my iPod touch to listen to after IT.  I should be finished with IT tomorrow and then I'll re-start that epic journey to the Tower again. ^_^


Wednesday, yes?

Yes, I think it is.  I haven't slept worth a damn lately and I've had a low grade migraine for days.  I need to get myself some sleep and some caffeine. :p . My iPod touch case came today.  I did have a case on my iPod touch, but it got a crack in it.  I used washi tape to hold it together until I could order a replacement.  The one I had I got on Amazon and was going to order another just like it.  They are not longer available, so I checked ebay since I had some cash in my Paypal account.  I found a cute one that is black and pink for $3 shipped.  It came today and it's nice.  I think the other one did well to hold up so long.  I had it for four years.  

 

 


Sunday....

So, it's Sunday and it's my regular day to do my bed linen.  I have that in the dryer now.  I'm pretty sure it's ready to go back on the bed, I just need to get it out and do that.  I got in a smaller walk today.  I didn't go as far as yesterday as I didn't want to be walking after dark again.  I could have actually stayed out longer, but oh well! Tomorrow, I plan to walk earlier in the day as I need to go by the bank.  I got a small check and I want to cash it.  It's a whole $3.42! LOL  Not too exciting, but  was totally  broke before this, so at least I can get a few things while I'm out.

I got in my workouts on time and then relaxed a bit before fixing lunch.  After that, I waited just a little bit and then went for my walk.  I played Pokemon Go for some of my walk.  I caught a new one and I also caught a Pikachu in a witch hat.  So cute! :) I was hoping to catch more new ones, but I was happy for what I got!  I will probably play tomorrow when I walk to the bank.

Oh yesterday's walk, I started listening to the audiobook of The Stand.  I tried to pick up where I left off yesterday, but it didn't want to play correctly.  It would be going along just fine, and then just skip way ahead in the recording.  Weird. I didn't want to have to mess with that while walking, so I just switched to Cell.  I have the Audible audiobook of it, and it's all one long recording.  It wanted to be bitchy too!  It started part of the way in the recording.  I finally got it to behave and listened to that on my walk.  Crazy iPod issues! :p

 


Wednesday means ....

Well, as usual, it means I go to Starbucks!  This week's trip was cut a bit short though. :(  I got there a little earlier than usual.  I was able to get my favorite chair from the start.  I got my drink and sat down and started writing letters.  I got four done and was starting on number five when a friend called.  They wanted me to drop by and eat some leftovers so they could clean out the fridge.  I went, even though I wasn't ready to leave Starbucks yet.  I got there and they had cupcakes! @_@; I may have had one.... or two. ^^;  I ran an errand for them and I also picked up my prescriptions while I was out.

I did get in my walk today.  It was HOT.  I came home from my walk and did my workouts.  I ate lunch and relaxed for a few minutes before going to Starbucks.  I finished the letter that I started over there.  I have all the letters all ready to go out in tomorrow's mail.  As soon as I post this, I'm going to relax until bedtime.  I want to play SpellTower. :)  It's this addictive game that I got some time back as a free app of the week at Starbucks.  I've had it on my iPod ever since.  Today, I bought the Android version.  Now I'll have it on my phone too!  It's so fun and it's so addicting.  I love word games!
