Will my computer be home soon?

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Or do we cry uncle and go buy a new one? We had it for one might before it died again. Turns out the hard drive looks like Swiss cheese. Round swSwiss cheese, but Swiss cheese nonetheless. She is attempting the repairs now. Fingers crossed!

If we need to buy a new PC, my list of stuff to save for shifts.

Fridge (or half chest freezer)
Here Come the Mummies CD
Happy Perfume
New holder for my I-Pod

DH wants to add flat screen TV, but he's on his own there! LOL! All I gotta say is I'd better get a new dishwasher before he gets a new TV!!

I need to go to bed now. I don't actually get to lay down because of this darn cough, but at least I can close my eyes for awhile!

    How about a new hard drive? I hope that you are soon feeling better!
I want a freezer too!

    I'm gonna alter your list from afar, LOL

I'm gonna take your PC OFF the list and

replace it with a Mac 'puter

I've had lots less trouble with it than with my DW's PC

Just my take on the situation, PLUS

I agree with CARLANNIE 's idea of lettin' DH get the TV and letting HIM do the dishes! You can tell that I just got off the floor from LMAO, right?

Hope you get feeling better soon too!

    Make a deal: he can have his flat screen TV IF he does all the dishes, every day, from now until 2015. That includes, of course, 'cleaning' up the kitchen after every meal. Hmmm....might not be so bad!

    Sorry you are having computer problems, STILL!

Tell DH that your sparkfriends will kick his butt if he gets a TV before you get a dishwsher. LOL

    It's between a new computer (you won't believe it, I've got my laptop since I started my PhD program in 2002! and it is just only starting to show signs of old age - unrepairable:( and a flat screen TV in this house as well (and someone is alone on that one too!:) I'd say there is a pattern! We just only need to figure out how it works.

Hope you have a good day.

Ate out twice today and barely over my calories!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

DH decided that he would like to take his loving family out for breakfast (yes, the kids came too! LOL!). I did not eat from the buffet and only ate half of what I ordered. Lunch was very light as I'm still not hungry (I know, not normal!!). DH then decided that dinner should be Buffalo Wild Wings. Good thing I had 1100+ calories left!! Even so, I went over by around 100 calories. Good thing we don't go there every day!

I did go to the gym for a very light cardio workout. The cough is still hanging on and if exercise too hard, I sound like a lung is trying to come up! LOL! I even got dinner for tomorrow assembled (lasagna). Now it's time to gather my stuff and go to bed. Nite y'all!

You've gotta work on your idea of a hot date w/ the hubby, though emoticon

Dang! I done food!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

I had a busy, productive day! Slept in until 8:30, got up dresses and got to work. First, started laundry. Then had the kids help me vacuum under the bed. Next, finished up my grocery list and gathered coupons. Forced myself to eat (I know, I am still such or there would be no forcing!) and went grocery shopping. Saved over $13 with my coupons!!

Came home and got everything put away and then headed to the library. Spent about an hour there Sparkin. Came home, sorted the clothes in my closet (finally) and then started burning stuff. I even had time to sit and read for half an hour!

Dinner was tacos and them off for a little window shopping with my man. When I mentioned that tomorrow is V day, he was terribly surprised! We're going to go to breakfast as a family. Big plans, huh? LOL!

Happy Valentine's Day all you Sparkers!

    LOL - I had to read back through your latest blogs to see what the heck you were burning??? Took me awhile to figure it out, but now that I have, just one question: was it great fun???

Happy Valentines - enjoy your breakfast. You have your best Valentines surrounding you!!! emoticon

    O that sounds so familiar. DH came this morning - after listening to the news on the radio and said: It's the 14th today? Really? I totally forgot! Ha - he had yesterday and today planned out (ok weekends are normally his working days)... but there goes romance.

Done...well mostly

Saturday, February 13, 2010

I was able to sleep in all the way to 7:30 this morning! Yippee!! Got up, got some brocolli cooking and got the babies to work. The room upstairs wasn't as bad as I was afraid it would be, so it didn't take us too long to get everything cleaned up. Took the stuff to burn dowstairs snd got about 1/5th of it burned. Plan to finish that tomorrow.

Took a shower and went to lunch with my friend. Mexican buffet. Very good and I didn't overeat!

After lunch, I started a load of laundry and ran some quick errands. The good news is that I don't have to go to Wal-mart on the weekend! LOL!

Went to the gym and figured out why they say not to exercise with a chest cold. Walked there and back. On the way back I was carrying pizzas for dinner. Does that count as strength training? LOL!

Didn't get a nap in, but didn't feel like I needed one. Also, didn't sort the clothes in my closet. Mostly cos I forgot it was on my list. Oops!

Tomorrow is grocery shopping (list and menus are already done!), library, clothes sorting, laundry and maybe a walk. Possibly a nap, depending on how I feel.

Time to head to bed now. Spark y'all tomorrow!

    Wow, busy day!

Have a great weekend and Happy Valentine's Day too.

BIG plans for my day off!

Friday, February 12, 2010

Well, maybe BIG might be overstating it a little. My first plan is to sleep in. Really hoping my cough allows that! After I get up, the kids and I are tackling the upstairs room. Yep, tackling. We tried touch, but we weren't getting anywhere! LOL!

Okay, really we're going to straighten, sort, organize, throw away, clean, whatever it takes! Then we're going to burn all the stuff I planned to shred before the shredder died. Fun for me and for them!

After that (or in the middle of it), I plan to have lunch with my friend (yes, I have one friend in the real world! LOL!)

After that, I'll start laundry, write my menus and grocery list and take a nap. Take-n-bake pizza is for supper, so no stress there! Sounds like a darned good day!

    Barbara, I hope you enjoy your day. Sounds like some serious calorie burning going on. Hmmm... my room could use a makeover! It's been a mess for years ... too overwhelming to touch or tackle. My whole life is in my room, as well as my self-employed business.

Don't over do it ... get some rest and send that cold on its way. emoticon laura
