And I did it again.....

This time I knew I was going to do it, though!  Last night it was getting late and I had to put the linens back on the bed, so I skipped posting here. Sorry about that.  I got all my usual Sunday things done yesterday and also went to the grocery store.  I started the month off right today by going to Starbucks! I got a peppermint white mocha and it was delicious! It was extra delicious today, actually.  Yum!  I didn't go anywhere else while I was out. I just went to Starbucks and then came home.

I wrote a lot yesterday (3813 words!) and I'm already a bit past 2500 for today.  I am going to try to add a little more to what I wrote today but I'm pretty happy with what I wrote.  I might go through and edit the last two days. It was two good writing sessions for those almost 7500 words!  If I wrote like this during NaNoWriMo I could do two books! I was on a roll yesterday. I had a big thing happen and it turned out well. I will go back and make sure I don't need to edit anything.  Today's writing was good too. I am going to see if I can't get a few more words as I mentioned.

My DS charger finally updated on the tracking.  It's been over a week since it updated at all!  It now says it is in Roanoke. This is usually the last stop before it gets to Danville. Normally, I would say with it being in Roanoke today, I will get my charger tomorrow, but with the way things are, I am scared to say it! The set of styluses that I got has been sitting in Raleigh NC since Wednesday of last week. Raleigh is only about 2 hours from my house. I know the USPS is slow lately, but come on!  Sheesh!  Anyway, I hope to get the charger and the I'll get to really play with it. I still haven't ordered a game.  I should have done that already. It will be April before I get one at this rate. :p

 


D'oh!

Guess who was about to forget to post today? Me!  Sorry about that.  I got some good writing done today.  I wrote 2,777 words on my story! Yay! That makes up for not writing anything yesterday.  I went to the post office as I planned. I picked up my mail, I got a book of stamps, and I paid for my post office box.  After that, I headed back home where I've been since then.  It is raining here again. ~_~; I hope it isn't too bad this time.  I am not ready for cold and rain. Boo on that! I got a few penpal letters.  Now I just need to sit down and write my letters. I hope to do that tomorrow or Sunday at the latest!  I so wish I could do it at Starbucks. I miss my favorite 'third place'. 


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:

Letters and lattes...

Well, letters, no lattes. Phooey!  I got all of my pen pal letters written today and mailed!  Whoo hoo! I'm so glad to have them done.  I got only one at the post office, so I'm now all caught up and have a new one.  It was a good thing to get them all done.  I went to the car wash while out and washed my car.  It needed a fresh wash.  I was going to do it here, but since I was already out, I went ahead and got it done.  I was tempted to go to Starbucks, but I was good and didn't go.  

When I was in the car wash, I took a picture of the pretty rainbow foam.  I always call it unicorn pee. :p. It's pretty, but this time it didn't go on very thick.

Exciting, isn't it? :p


It's my birthday!

What did I do to celebrate?  I went to mail back my old phone.  I checked my box and had some letters.  I washed my car because it needed it and I was too lazy to do it at home! I left there and went to Starbucks.  I got my birthday drink.  I sipped on it and went to the park to sit by my favorite tree for a bit. I hung out in the park a bit and then went and got gas for my car.  I filled it up / topped it off and it was only $8 so that was nice.  I did take some pictures.  Two in the post office and one of the darkening sky when I was sitting in the park.

I thought it was going to rain, but it never did. The sky was pretty though!  My friend texted me from work and said he was bringing by a hoagie from a local place.  Steak and cheese. It was delicious!  It was a good birthday lunch.  What's for dinner?  My favorite, hash brown casserole! :D. Yum.  That is too delicious meals today.  The Starbucks was pretty darn good, too! :p


Hmmm

Well, I didn't get my inspection sticker today.  I went but he was really busy and said if I came back tomorrow he'd work me in.  I will head back up there tomorrow and get it done.  I did get by the post office while I was out though.  I picked up a stack of mail and was able to get a 'book' of stamps.  It was actually a sheet of stamps, but there you go!  Now I can get my letters written and mail them out.

I should have worked on them today, but I didn't get around to it.  I had to go back out for a quick errand this weekend and ended up riding around a bit. I couldn't help myself. :) It's nice to not worry about the car cutting off, overheating, etc!

In other news, I need to get one of my mowers going so I can get the front lawn mown.  The back doesn't really need it and even if it did, I'm not worried about it as no one can see it.  The front is still not horrible, but it's getting shaggy and I don't like that! I'll see what I can do tomorrow after I get my sticker.  


Monday...right?

Yes, it's Monday.  I got my pen pal letters done today! Yay!  I also got them all mailed off.  I had three new ones in my box.  Not new pals, but new letters from old pals.  lol

I was thinking of Starbucks while out, but it was rainy and bleah out, so I just came home after the post office.  I came home to a bit of a mess. The new container I had in the closet to catch the drips was working well.  The old one tipped and fell out on the floor. UGH!  I cleaned that all up and put it back.  I put another heavy item in there to keep it from tipping again.  I hope that helps.  It's supposed to rain for days.  BOO!  

I did take a picture while I was in the post office.  I love the old boxes they have.  There are little windows on most of the boxes so you can see if you have mail or not.  I love this old building.  It's very vintage. I just wish they had lockers.  At my old post office location, if you go something too big for your box, you got a key.  It would open a locker and you could just pick up whatever it was that didn't fit in the box.  It was quite convenient.

Wednesday afternoon post later...

So, it's cleared off quite a bit here.  The sky is still somewhat cloudy, but the sun has come out.  People are back on the beach all up and down it.  I took a few pictures to share.  It is pleasant out here and I'm debating on if I want to walk on the beach now or not.  I am not sure if it will rain again tonight.  I don't want to miss a walk on the beach today because of rain. We'll see how it goes.  Right now I'm going to sit here and enjoy this lovely breeze.

Letters but no lattes!

I sat down today and got my letters written and then went to mail them off. It's quite hot outside today.  I should have known when I was trying to sleep last night and it was so warm that I had to turn the air conditioning on!  It's been on all day today, too!  I was walking out the door to mail my letters and realized that one of them didn't have a stamp.  I ran back into the house and got a stamp and then went back to my car.  I drove down to the post office and ran in. I dropped my letters off and then checked my box.  I had five more letters waiting.  Well, four that I'll actually answer.  The fifth was from an inmate. ~_~;  I used to write a few of them, but they always get the idea that we are in a relationship and that is not going to happen. I don't want to date anyone on the outside either. LOL!

I had thought about going by Starbucks while I was out because I have a bunch of stars and I could have gotten a free drink, but I figured with it being Saturday, they would be really busy so I skipped it!  Plus it was hot and I have no air. I prefer hot coffee and today was not the day. If I had air, yes, but I don't.  Oh well! My stars don't run out anytime soon, so I'm good!

 


Just a few more

I added a few words to my book today.  I had a day where I forgot to add something and I went back and did that today and updated my word count.  Now, if I could just get my 50,000 badge! AHHHH! 

I hope to get to my new stack of letters in the next few days. I ordered some stamps online and they came today! Yay!  I was going to order from USPS which I usually do, but it would have taken longer. I went on eBay and there are a lot of people selling stamps on there!  I got two 10 stamp books for the regular retail price with free shipping, so I did that.  When I don't get them online, I get them at the drug store as they sell them.  I really didn't want to go to CVS just for stamps, so I got them online.  Easy peasy!
