Forgot to wear my Sparks Tracker again. Darn!

Monday, September 22, 2014

So I was getting ready for my morning walk and on the way I was going to drop off Phred for his hair cut. In my rush to get him there I forgot to wear the darn trackers. So I had to figure the amount using the Sparks Maps. I just hate when I forget because even when you enter the information yourself it won't count for weekly goals like steps & miles. I can live with that but still makes me mad when I do that.

So the new dog groomer for Phred is just around the corner. I asked for his air to be cut like last time but when I picked him up his hair was a bit longer than I would have liked. it just means I will have to take him back soon. emoticon This place is cheaper than Pet Smart where we use to take him, it is $40 and I leave the girl a $5 tip. Pet Smart was $63+tip for the exact same thing, cut, bath, nails, ears, teeth and gland and he gets a cute little bandanna.

My son Frank & I have finally hit the 21st Century when it comes to phones. We never had any data packages so I couldn't download the Sparks app. Only thing is I did it through the phone app and didn't get any credit. I tried to contact help here but since I also asked why I couldn't see any recipes they got stuck on that. They supposedly sent a link for me to use but it just took to the regular place onsite where you download the apps. I asked twice if I was suppose to unload the app I got from my phone and reload, but got no satisfactory answer. So still no points for the original app but I did find I have to download a couple more to get everything.
At home I use our Wi-Fi network to save on data use and my son has done the same thing. It has taken me a few days to figure out how to use the new phone. We had checked out T-Mobile, ATT, Verizon and over at Costco to see what they offered. Ended up going with a new company here call Cricket (suppose they are back East and Mid West). Its close to walk too, no contract and $50 a month with the phone costing $79 for a Moto-G. Verizon charged $100 for the same phone on a month to month. So glad to be rid of Sprint, had them for 4 yrs and hated them the whole time. I couldn't even get coverage in some points in our house. Cricket use the ATT towers so coverage is very good.

Still having migraines, last night was pretty bad. Just wish they would figure out what is causing so many of them, when I went years only getting a few a year. That will be the next thing the doc's look into after the out patient surgery I wrote about in my last blog.

Hope you all have a great day! Off to take Phred for a walk.

    You can uninstall the old one and try to install the new one to see if that will help with it working. Some times they just don't work good with other phones.

    You beat me in going into the 21st century with your new phones. I see a Cricket store quire frequently throughout the midwest. Haven't checked into them though. We just have to have good service with all the traveling we do.

    I do hope you can find out more about the migraines you are having. They are so miserable!

    I have found Pet Smart out of our price range as well. We do our own grooming but our llittle one Keeleigh really needs attention as her coat is very thick and long. Looks like she has a bad hair day all the time :-)D Not sure how anyone can change that but she is so hot all the time.
