Totally annoyed but life is still wonderful. Maybe the annoyance will cause me to get more focused on learning more of the ins and outs of stuff. I would really loce to learn how to take full advantage of my gadgets capabilities instead of staying lazy just because it gets complicated. Don't you just love how my mind works when I always seem to start a rant in the middle and three paragraphs later get down to explaining what I'm talking about? At the moment it's the crazy ipod. I downloaded a ton of blues videos and converted them to mp4 and now it says the mp4 format I chose won't play so I have to convert again. And it takes FOREVER to convert. Enuf that I had to put off my visit with mom a day.
At least I figured out how to hook the ipod to the tv to play big screen. That is why I am doing this. My first use for it was to watch videos but for the past few years it's main use is pedometer and solitaire. I could listen to music while I play but I still haven't taken time to learn how to do it on purpose. When I drop it, music sometimes turns on but after more than five years I still haven't checked into doing it on purpose. I just learned how to do podcasts two months ago. Maybe I should finally learn how to put tv shows on it? I really should learn to edit my videos and stuff too. It's not like I don't have time. Guess that's my new project while I wait to start the den walls and lose my last fifty eight pounds. That's right. Eighty two down now.
Since I wrote that rant I'm down another two pounds. Fifty six to go. Not one person that I have told my goal weight to has been agreeable with me. Now they are downright arguing! Forcefully arguing. My BMI is still obese and I was told today that I look like I weigh 125. I wonder when the last time she saw someone at 125 since I'm still 171? Feels.wonderful. Today is my oldest's twenty second birthday and this will be my first year to be a summertime girl since before he was born. Gotta wind down for sleep since we get up at 630 am for our Outlaw Road Show at SXSW in Austin tomorrow and I know it's getting bad but for the third weekend in a row I am having a drink. Well deserved and need though. I MUST say.
Wednesday we had one girl that had to be restrained from hurting herself four times with two going to the chair. Because she got a zero score. She came off precautions today and went back on five hours later ending up in two more restraints with one going to the chair. Four shots Wednesday and three today to calm her down. It breaks my heart. Praying all the time for this girl. Ya'll pray too, K? Even tho I am afraid she will be committed soon, I still think we have some chance. Maybe. Anyway, it might be an excuse but I figgered I deserved a drink. How else to switch gears to free concert mode?
I might even see my nephew there cuz he has been facebooking from Austin a couple of days. Adam, my "friend" as hubby calls him from Counting Crows has been there over a week already. I have decided in my heart that somehow I will be able to get close enuf to make Zack take at least one picture of me with Adam tomorrow since I have been enthralled with his music for NINETEEN flipping years. I'm due, dag burn it! So that's my goal. Ron is just gonna be fishing. Gotta say it's been months since he has had the chance so as much as I would rather him surprise me with den walls, he deserves to fish while I live my one day as a full out groupie with my newly turned 22 year old as my chaperone to keep me out of trouble. If possible.
So I'm shutting down for tonite to finish the blog with whatever goes down at my mid life rebirth party weekend. Just an update on the ipod. I read the manual and still didn't get into playing music while the game is going but I did fill it up with blues videos. TV shows I like cost money so I'll contonue them on the laptop but did find some of their free educational stuff interesting. After I already ran out of room to put it onto the ipod. I forgot my nook at home when I went to work yesterday and thought I would have a meltdown but doing summaries on half thee unit took up all my time. Good thing I never put them off for Friday with the day I had today. Two hours of drama takes an additional four hours to fill out all the paperwork. ALL STINKING NITE. Oh yeah. I was trying to get my mind OFF my baby girl, waan't I?
