So, I figured out iMovie a bit. I got the video done with a title card and a closing card. Great right? Wrong! I can't get it to upload to YouTube for some reason. I'm saving a copy of it to my desktop so I hopefully will be able to try that one. I tried to upload straight from the app, but it's not working for me for some reason. I found some pdfs of help guides to iMovie last night and downloaded them to read and learn more about the program. I am not sure at this point when I'll get my video up. lol . I did the 'share to Youtube' thing and I also set it to save a copy of my desktop. So far, I haven't seen either! I sent one to YouTube last night as a test. It said it was there, but it never showed up for me. Weird. I obviously don't know what the hell I'm doing. :P Hopefully I'll get it sorted out. If by some weird chance, my video DOES upload to YouTube tonight, I'll come back and post a quick post to link to it. Wish my luck. I'm going to need it. Geekgirl indeed! lol
So, tonight I finished a puzzle. I had worked on it a while back and got frustrated with it because of the small pieces and the way some would fit in the wrong spots. I tossed it back in the box a year or so back and didn't bother with it. Well, I wanted a puzzle to work sometime last week and pulled it out. I have been working on it off and on since then. It's truly hard because the pieces are so tiny and the colors are very similar. I finished it tonight. Sadly, when I got done, I was missing six pieces! I found five of them and now I'm just missing one. I'm hoping it will turn up.
Last night after looking a puzzle boards, puzzle mats, and all kinds of other things, I thought about a solution! I could get a wall hangable chalk board or whiteboard in the size I need to do larger puzzles. I looked up some and found some a lot cheaper than any of the puzzle boards. Most of the nicer puzzle boards were expensive and they would be smaller than my old chess board! I looked up whiteboards and found that Target had one that is 2x3 and that would be perfect. It can also be used as a whiteboard when I'm not working a puzzle! The white background will make working the puzzle easier too, I think. I was going to go to Target tonight and pick one up, but I never made it. I worked on the puzzle from hell and finally got that done. Now I just need to find that one little piece!
I almost skipped my walk today because I was tired when I woke up. I didn't get a good night's sleep last night. I went for my walk anyway. When I was coming back, the train tracks that lead into my neighborhood were totally blocked. They have been doing maintenance on the tracks. One day when I left for my walk, they were blocked the crossing, but I was able to go around it by walking down the track just a few feet. Today, there was no way around. I had to walk all the way down to the next crossing. There is no sidewalk between the two crossings and it's not fun to have to go down there. I finally got home and I was so tired! I truly hope they are not there tomorrow! If they aren't when I leave for my walk, I'll keep an eye out and try to go around before getting to the point where I usually go over the tracks. There is a way to do that, but only if I know in advance. Technically you aren't supposed to go that way, but I figure it's better than walking down the highway to get to the other entrance to the neighborhood!
Oh and if you are thinking, why didn't I just walk down the track a bit and go around, there is a good reason for that. They had cars on the trains that were working on the track and it extended almost to the second crossing. If that one had been blocked, I probably would have cried!
I needed to update my address with my insurance. I go to the site and log in and all if well. It shows the current address (my po box) but no way to change anything. I actually have to print out a PDF and mail a change of address to them. ~_~; That is ridiculous! I should be able to change it online. Get with the program, people!
I walked today and the wind was still a bit brisk. It wasn't as bad as yesterday as I wore a hat to help. It also wasn't as intense as it was yesterday. I got through with my walk and came home and decided I was in for the night. I didn't go anywhere else. I'm actually afraid to drive my car and get stuck somewhere! I should go out and try to start it, but if I do, I'd have to drive it around some to charge up the battery. Perhaps tomorrow.
I totally forgot to post yesterday. It was one of those days! Let me tell you about it. First of all, it rained, it rained a lot. I did not get to walk because of the rain. I decided in the evening to go to Starbucks and get that tumbler that I wanted before it was gone. I got over there and got my tumbler and a drink and headed to my car. By then, luckily, the rain had stopped. Good thing too. My car wouldn't start! I went back in Starbucks and asked one of my favorite Baristas if she or anyone had jumper cables. No one did, but she went with me to ask at the little restaurant next door. One of the guys there had them. Yay! It took quite a while, but my car finally started up so I could drive it home. Many thanks were given! I got home and parked my car and I haven't tried to start it since then.
I got to walk today to make up for yesterday. It was overcast and the street was still wet when I left today, but it didn't rain and the sun came out. Unfortunately, I didn't know there was a wind advisory! As I was on my way back, the wind was nuts. I had to put my hoodie up and tie it under my chin to keep it on. Seriously! I pushed my way through the wind and got home. I was so glad to get here, let me tell you! The wind and the soaked ground led to power outages in the city and surrounding areas. Luckily, so far, I still have power. I made sure to get everything I needed done early in case the power went out.
When I went over to Starbucks last night, I noticed how high the river was. It was really, really high. We can't seem to dry out from one rain event before another hits. It's crazy! Hopefully we'll dry out soon. I am sick to death of the rain. Especially since I woke up to a pond in my kitchen! I found a new leak in there. It is about a foot away from the sink, too. ~_~; It couldn't have happened over the sink, could it? I cleaned up the water and put down something to catch the drip. It's weird because the parts that usually leak haven't in a while. It's like the drips move around. So weird!
Anyway! If you are interested, here is the tumbler. I really like this one and I think it's probably going to be my favorite. I love the design on the outside, it makes gripping it so easy and I love the silver color. It will be my beach bound tumbler this year. lol
My friend, the one that does so much for me, mentioned he would like a shake. Well, I decided to go and get him one. I was in line almost 30 minutes! The line did not want to move and the two in front of me where being asses. I finally got through the line and dropped it off. I'm home now and I'm watching the episode of the Simpsons where Homer gets addicted to Stranded (aka LOST) . Such a funny episode. Especially since I loved the hell out of LOST and watched it religiously. I love the way Homer gets hooked on the show and doesn't want to do anything but watch it.
Today's walk was nice, but it was a lot cooler out there. I went from walking in the 60's and 70's to 40ish and it had a 'feel like' temperature of lower. It wasn't too bad, though. I bundled up appropriately so I wasn't cold. I came home and watched for the mailman. Why? My 'new' Fossil bag came. I love it. It's soooooooo soft and it's the perfect size. I took a few pictures inside, but the lighting sucks in my house and it didn't come out right. I'll try to take outside pictures tomorrow.
I am still waiting on a refund from the seller that won't contact me. I do not want to have to call eBay again. I don't understand why they don't have chat or email support. It's 2019! Sheesh. I want to get this resolved, but I hate to use the phone for calls. There should be a way to do it without that.
I came close to skipping my walk today, because the street was wet. Luckily, it must have just rained for a few minutes. My walk was completely dry. I'm glad I went, because it's supposed to rain tomorrow. I'm not sure if it's supposed to rain when I'd be walking, but if it is, I'll skip walking.
Sorry, I'm rambling. I'm upset over this whole eBay situation. I really wanted that purse. It also ticks me off that I paid for the return shipping for something I didn't want.
My stylus came today and when I opened it, I was in love. It's pretty, it's easy to hold and it's got the perfect weight. The problem? It scratched my iPad screen!!!!!!!! My screen was pristine and now it has a scratch. I'm so disappointed! They need to make the stylus tip better. I have already repackaged it and dropped it off at a UPS drop box! I guess I'll have to make do with a regular old stylus. The tip on those is so big. Oh well! I'd rather have that than have a scratched up screen!
I got in my walk today and I was happy to have done that! My friend is supposed to come tomorrow and work in the basement again. This time I get to walk. lol I'll just leave the basement open for him. I don't think he'll really need me to help at first anyway, so it will work out well. I hope he gets it fixed!
Update on the purse situation. It arrived at the address that the seller had on file at ebay today and it said it had to be forwarded!!!!! UGH She must have moved and not updated her address at ebay. I'm getting more and more upset with her as we go. She still hasn't bothered to message me once! I don't understand how she has so much good feedback.
So, today, I get an update from ebay that they aren't going to refund me. I didn't ask for a refund. I just wanted the item I requested. I had to call ebay to get that ball rolling. I bought a shipping label from USPS and put the purse in a flat rate padded envelope and dropped it in a box tonight.
I realized that I had run out of mailing tape, so I had to run out and get some on my way to the post office. I was so close to Starbucks and I didn't think about going because I was so upset over this whole ebay situation. I really hope I get the purse I actually ordered. This whole situation has stressed me out. I've never had this kind of problem on ebay before. :(
I got a package today. It was supposedly my Fossil purse I ordered on ebay. Well, it was a Fossil purse all right. It wasn't the purse I ordered. Not even close. I'm am not very happy with this situation and as soon as I saw it, I contacted ebay. The purse I ordered was 'new' and this one is definitely not. The one I ordered is cream colored, this is brown. They don't even look alike. I'm so pissed. UGH. Now I have to wait for ebay to contact the seller, see if I hear from them, and then get ebay to settle is if they don't. I'm so pissed. So, so, so pissed. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Holidays always get my all confused on what day it is. Happens every year at this time. :p . I walked today even though I didn't feel well. My right ear is giving me problems. It was hurting and I think I might have an ear infection. Hopefully it can clear up on it's own. I don't have the money to go to the doctor at the moment, and my new insurance cards haven't come. They should have come already. I'm going to have to look into that.
