Good Grief!

What a day.  I actually got to walk today and that was nice.  I came home and did some things around the house while waiting on a package.  The package was a Logitech wireless keyboard that I've wanted since last year's NaNo!  I ordered it two days ago on Amazon and it came today.  It's nice and I'm actually typing on it now.  I will use it mainly for my phone and tablet, but it's working grewat with my MacBook Pro.  it isn't working at all with my tablet at the moment.  I am going to work on that and see if I can't get it to work later.

When I was at Target the other week, I saw some laptop sleeves.  They were marked down to less than $5 and they were for a 11" size laptop. My MBP is 13 inch, so it wouldn't do me any good.  The keyboard is about that size though and I thought it would make a good case to keep it in when I'm not using it.  It's a snug fit, but it fits.  It will be good to have protection for it when not in use.  So, I go back to my car and try to start it to drive home.  No go.  I try a few more times and still nothing.  I waited awhile and tried again.  Nope.  Also, all of my attempts at trying to start it ran the battery down. ~_~;  Luckily, I had a friend come and give me a jump.  It started right up and I was able to get home.  While I was waiting for all this, I went back in Target and got a Cascara latte!  I was going to get one when I was in there but there was a line.  I decided I'd stop at the regular one on my way home.  I knew I wasn't going to stop again or not go straight home after I got my car started, so I just went in Target and got my latte.  They were out of almond milk and it wasn't as good as it usually is.  Oh well, it was something good and hot to drink. It was a bit chilly outside sitting in a car that wouldn't start!

So, I'm home now.  I have to do NaNo. I haven't done that yet.  I will work on that after I eat dinner.  I have no idea what I'm going to fix for dinner.  I guess I'll find out when I fix it. LOL . I did some more on my 2019 bullet journal.  I drew in lines on the rest of the trackers that needed them.  I also filled in my board game tracker. It looks so good! I love it! I hope to do a video and take some pictures of all the work I did on it soon.  Oh, I also fell in love with the blue Stabilo pen that I used to set up a lot of it.  It was also the pen I used to set up this year's NaNo tracker.  I looked online to see if I could order some of just this color of pens.  I found a site that had them for .60 each! I got five. LOL . I plan to use that color throughout the year in 2019 in that bujo.  I'll keep using the pen I have and put one of the new ones in my Stabilo roll that I got earlier this year.  The other three are backups. :P

Now, I need to start thinking about dinner and then getting prepared for NaNo.  I am really liking the feel of this keyboard. I might be using it tonight!–


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. 


Goodness!

So, today, I got up and got in my regular walk.  I was hoping my friend would want to walk again, but he didn't.  I went to Target and got some money!  How you ask?  Well, the Fitbit that I bought earlier went on sale and was $30 less.  I got the difference.  I had to go twice because I thought they would just be able to do the price difference, and I didn't take the box.  I only took the receipts.  I had to come home and get the  box and go back.  This was stressful as my car is acting up horribly.  I got it done though. Good thing too, today was the last day to get the difference!  Twenty of that will go to bill for this Fitbit.  The other ten was for fun!  I have been eating very well lately and I'm seeing progress.  I decided to treat myself to some comfort food.  I went to McDonald's.  I shouldn't have gotten it, but it was so delicious! :P

I ate in the park and PoGo'd while I was there.  I had almost hatched a 10k egg on today's walk and I finished the rest in the park.  I got a Snorlax. :D It's been a loooong time since I have gotten one!  I also hit a few Pokestops. There were some people that took over a Valor gym.  They were Instinct and I was tempted to go take it for Mystic, but I was nice and didn't. :p  

We had local elections today so I went to vote.  I got an I voted sticker.  It is already in my bullet journal. ^_^  I meant to ask the ladies at Target for a Spot the dog sticker but didn't.  I know they give them out to kids, but I wanted one myself. lol  I'm such a silly!

After all the Target stuff and before McDonald's, I went out and mowed the front lawn.  It was starting to look shabby again.  The back is okay.  I did a big portion of it a few days ago.  The other part should be okay for a few days.  


What a day!

So, I mentioned that it rained on my walk yesterday.  Well, that was nothing compared to today!  It rained a lot on today's walk and I had to use the umbrella for the entire walk.  It wasn't the kind of rain that fell straight either! lol  My arm, my belt bag, my back pack, and my shoes were wet when I got home.  I was so tired and my right knee was really hurting when I got here so I didn't do my workouts.  I was lying on the bed trying to get  comfy and take a nap.  My knee was against this idea!  I read and just played some Pocket Camp.  My friend had mentioned us going to eat, so I agreed to that.

We went to a place we haven't tried before.  It's a local restaurant that was very good.  They have 'country cooking'.  I got a pork tenderloin with gravy and mashed potatoes.  Delicious!  My friend got spaghetti and he said it was great, too.  They have good coffee. :p  I rode with him after that to get a hard drive.  We went to Office Max and then to Target at my suggestion.  He found what he needed and then ran to get himself a shake.  He took me by McDonald's and got me a Frappe.  I haven't had one in forever.  It was good!

I came home and did my workouts, finally.  I finished those and relaxed a bit before fixing dinner.  I am now typing this up and getting ready to get on my bed and read and play more Pocket Camp.  I started on one of the true crime books last night and it's very good.  I was up until after 3am reading. Oops!  


I need to stay out of Target! :P

Since I was interrupted on my trip to Target the other night, I went again today.  I got two cute Halloween washi tapes.  One of pumpkins and one of little ghosties!  So cute!  I also got a stand up pencil case, a pink 'make up' bag, a cute little milk bottle witha  jack o lantern on it and a marked down lunch bag.  I thought it would be a cute bag to carry my bujo in.  It doesn't look all that big, but it is! Here is the inside with my stuff:

I have my bujo in there, the new stand up pencil case, and a few other things and there is still plenty of room!  Here is a picture of the outside. I am using the picture from the Target site as mine was too dark.

Here is my horrible dark picture!

It's really cute and handy.  I can also use it as a lunch bag if I want. It was originally $9.99 but it was marked down to $2.98.  I couldn't pass it up!

I also got a latte in the Target Starbucks while I was there. :P

Earlier today I had to go to Kmart to pick up a prescription.  I saw this cutie when I was walking out.  I put my prescription in my car and went back to purchase him. I had $4 in points that I didn't know I had, so instead of $4.99 he was only $1.99.  I love his little curly stem!

That was my day in pictures.  I hope you enjoyed. ^_^


Busy Thursday!

I went and did all my first of the month shopping.  I got groceries, and some other things I needed.  I went to Target and got some things from the Dollar spot and I found a new wallet.  It's really cute and it's funtional.  I love it.  Here is a link to the same one on Target's site:

Wallet  

They had the black, the bronze, and the blue in stock at the store.  I kept going back and forth between the black and the blue.  I finally decided on the blue.  I really like it.  It's very well made and it was a good price too!  In the Dollar spot, I found a cute little 5 page sticker book and three rolls of washi.  One is colorful paperclips and two (the same) are polka dots.  Of course, since I was in Target and they have a Starbucks, I went to Starbucks. :P  I should have waited as I plan to go to the new Starbucks location when it's open tomorrow.  Oh well, you can never have too much Starbucks. :P

I went to Family Dollar to get a few essentials, and I found some cute sticky notes and a magnetic graph notepad in the back to school section.  The sticky notes are a two pack.  One is polka dots and one is blue with rainbow and the words Dream Big.  Both are cute!  The little graph lined notepad has "Notes" on it.

I went back out later to pick up a few things I needed at the grocery store.  I stopped by CVS and found some of the Softlips cube marked down to .99 each.  I also found some orange flavored louzenges.  They were marked down to .52 and then were in cute little reusable plastic containers.  I'll reuse those for office supplies. I was about to go to check out when I checked this one aisle where they something sell random things.  They had some fitness leggings!  They were only $9.99 a pair.  I found a pair that are predominately grey with blue accents.  They are pretty nice.  I figured for the price, they couldn't be too bad.  I tried them on when I got home and they fit fine.  I can also use more workout clothes!

Speaking of working out.  I got home a little bit after I usually start to do my workouts.  I decided to do them when I got home.  I was done before time to fix my lunch.  I did that and then that is when I went to CVS, Food Lion, and Family Dollar. Oh.. and I got gas in my car too!

So, tomorrow, my only plan is to do my workouts and go to the new Starbucks. :D  I want to see how they have it set up.  I also want to see how much more seating there is.  Did I mention this new Starbucks has a drive thru? Whee! :P
