The charger for my Mac is broken. We took it to Best Buy last night for a new one, as we paid for the $400 3-year warranty, and I want my covered $80 charger. Good deal we brokered there, huh.
They of course can’t give me a cord they have in stock, they need to order one and have it shipped to my house.
Shoulda never bought the warranty. It was against my better judgement, but then like many things I did it anyway.
So that should arrive in a few days. In the meantime I’m interloping on My Mister’s when I can, or using the iPad, but that’s no good for lots of typing of words, such as now. That’s really only useful for playing Bejeweled Blitz (highly addictive).
Today is Saturday.
I hate how fast the weekends go.
Here’s some brief recaps of the week:
1/ Kenny began his training for the casino job. He’s up and out of the house at 8:00 a.m. I had my moment this morning when HE had to get up for work and I rolled over and slept for 2 more hours. Delicious sleep. He only has training fro 4 hours per day, 9:00 – 1:00, and he really likes it, but he is NOT a morning person. Another reason we belong together.
2/ Speaking of not being a morning person, I recently purchased a Philips blue light thing-a-ma-jig that promises to transform my life and maybe even make me a morning person. I began using it on Thursday. I felt pretty peppy Thursday & Friday, but then I had no troubles at all sleeping til 10:30 this morning. No troubles at all. And while it’s supposed to make me happier and sunnier dispositioned, I was a little on the Bitchy McBitchypants side today, for no good reason. I was feeling contrary and not very smiley. Maybe the light has to pull all the bad feelings out and make room, before the good feelings can settle in.
3/ Went to a cooking demonstration today to make a vegan meal of quinoa, black bean burgers, squash soup, salsa and caramelized pears. It was good. The best thing that came of it was the discovery that the chef will cook for you. She will make a week’s worth of personalized meals for the low low price of $140/week. Now, while that may seem like a lot at first, considering we spent $60 at Bonefish on Wednesday, $50 at Mustard Seed on Saturday, $50 at Olive Garden last night, and $30 at Bob Evans one night this week, $140 would be SAVING us money and be providing more healthy meals. I’m going to contact her and give it a whirl for 2012.
So we’re going to see how that goes. She doesn’t just cook vegan, she’ll tailor the menu to your needs. I’m sort of excited as I really do not enjoy cooking when I get home from work, which is why it doesn’t get done.
4/ Did a smidgen of Christmas shopping tonight. The problem with shopping is that I see all sorts of things that I like, and that gets expensive fast. I bought a couple things that I already want to return. I just don’t love ’em once I got them out of the bewitching lights of the store.
I have no idea what to get 92 year old Margie (Kenny’s grandma). I was going to get her (and me) a set of Cariloha sheets, that are supposed to be the best sheets EVER, but can’t pull the trigger on $170 for a set of sheets, especially that she may not like. And then to get us a set, too (because I can’t order them and NOT get some for myself), you’re talking close to $400. To snore and drool and fart on.
On that note, I’m going to finish my cuppa rum and peach iced tea and find something to eat. My quinoa wore plumb off.
